Thanks again guys, it’s good to know i’m part of a strong community that support their own.
I guess it just showed my inexperience as an author, having only been an author for less than 4 months.
I would always try and reason with people and try and justify myself, but I guess i’m learning it’s best just to hit that ‘Report’ button.
It’s ok I’m not replying to anything they say now, just reporting them.
Shame about the FBI not knocking on my door though, I always fancied Gillian Anderson.
Thanks again for words of support everyone, but it’s still happening, so if any member of staff wants to take this on soon I’d appreciate it lots.
I’ve just had to report a comment from one of the main culprits now who is threatening me with legal action (apparently he say’s he’s already spoken to the FBI ) and has found and printed my home address!!!

Thanks everyone, it’s reassuring to know that authors have got each others backs. I know I would if it was happening to someone else.
As a lot of comments have now been flagged it probably doesn’t look that bad to people now but believe me when I checked it this morning, there were some very vicious personal attacks on there. I assume mods can see reported comments?
Will this kind of thing find it’s way to Siddarth (via my support ticket) or do I need to contact him directly through his profile?
Thanks for the words of support Michael and AGSoft, maybe I’ve been too tolerant in the past as I believe in freedom of speech, but when it just becomes abuse a line has to be drawn.
I’ve never seen anything else like it on other people’s comments, I guess I’ve just been unlucky.
I want to bring to people’s attention the serious abuse that the comments section is open to, and I don’t just mean spammers.
I am getting serious verbal abuse/cyber bullying (call it what you will) and more by two individuals in particular. Normally I just try and ignore them, although I have offered them help and support in the past, they have since turned into vicious animals. As I say normally I ignore them but recently it’s gotten way out of hand, to the point where I am considering removing my software from CC altogether.
I have reported them over the weekend via a support ticket, but if nothing can or is done about them and fast, then I will have no option but to leave CC for good.
Yes there have been issues with the software in the past, but these have been fixed, especially the security issues (which one of them claims hasn’t) and I’ve added new features that the other person requested. I have a few more bug fixes being released in the next few days but after that I don’t feel that I want to continue developing it if this is the kind of abuse I’m going to get. So they have single handedly potentially ceased further development by making my sales dive bomb.
I get emails from other users saying they can’t believe how I’m being treated, they say they’ve not seen anything like it in all their years on Envato.
Is there anything that can be done about these people?
Has anyone had a similar experience, or is it just me?
No doubt they will probably see this and I’ll get more s**t from them but I’m hoping that other authors might stick up for me a bit. After all, Envato can’t operate without it’s authors, so if are getting forced to leave by bitter individuals where will things end up.
Look forward to hearing your thoughts and any advise from mods, I can post my support number if any mod wants to take it on.
Everyone has been in the same position at some point, even the authors with 10,000 sales and Super Elite status, they all started from 0.
It can seem harsh, the rejection cycle, but we all go through it.
Stick with it everyone who is striving to break through, one day soon it will happen for sure.
Team GB are doing the country proud.
Jessica Ennis just won gold in the Heptathlon, and 20 mins later we got the longjump gold. Looking for Mo Farra to make it a hatrick in the 10k
GO TEAM GB
Coda 2 for desktop and Diet Coda for my iPad, for when the wife is watching Coronation Street and EastEnders!
A friend wants to start learning about web design and coding and I’ve heard good things about the TreeHouse courses but wanted to get some first-hand feedback.
I haven’t got any recent books to lend him (I need to start up my library again!) and I think an online course like this would probably be better.
Anyone got first-hand experience of TreeHouse?
