jremick saidUnfortunately, I don’t think any authors are surprised by this; Which says a lot.
Hi everyone, apologies for the lack of response here. Unfortunately we’ve just not been able to give this project the attention that it needs and we don’t want to make any changes without thoroughly evaluating the data, etc. Having said that, we haven’t shelved the project, it’s just been delayed more than anticipated.
As soon as we’ve made more significant progress, we’ll post an update either via forums or the Notes blog.Thanks for your patience everyone and, again, apologies for the wait on this.
Yup, and that’s kind of sad. Isn’t it? I’m frankly considering severe changes to my business model. Envato might not care about this either, as there’s an infinite number of authors waiting to step in.
Really sad to see another topic that has not been picked up by envato for nearly a year now. The “broken theme” issue could be fixed with a tiny change to the review process, like internq7 suggested: RENAME THE DOWNLOAD FOLDER TO “UNZIP-FIRST…” or something. That’s a flick of a switch.
But, like many other issues (forum improvement, price changes, low quality items, plagiarism), envato doesn’t care about it and rather lets authors spend hours and hours of support.
Nice guys, you, huh? Motivates much to support you.
Thank Goodness, IE6 is dead. I thought. The shitty, blind, deaf, dumb but remarkably and unpredictably creative browser that measurably lowered all webdesigners’ productivity and cost millions of hours of stupid error fixing.
Take a look at http://www.ie6countdown.com/ – still, more than 7% use it! OK, most of them in China and supposedly “opened source”, but still …
Recently, I got a support request to fix some IE6 issues. But I think: If YouTube and most major sites have stopped supporting IE6 , why should I?
So: Do you still test and support compatibility of your items with IE6 ?
Unbelievable – New items go from top to page 2 in 3-5 days now …
and don’t tell me you look at page 2 … stats tell a different story. Like at Google, only a fraction looks at paginated items.
Featured items? OK, but there’s only 1 per week, and we have around 30 new items per week. Competition at its best.
... and if you keep asking theme buyers to rate your work, f.ex. after supporting them, you’ll get way more ratings than the average theme
won’t be 3 of 3 though. clumsy, clumsy.
Evil to him who evil thinks
To put an end to speculative guesses and price decreases (jeeez!): envato, ANY NEWS ?
Edit: Price decreases would be a total turn off for anybody. If any of my items would go down in price, let’s say because it’s not responsive or fake responsive or so, I’d seriously have to rethink my business.
