I would really like to see stats for each piece of work! It would be nice to see where some of the sales come from or if someone has written about a certain piece on another site. It would also be good to see how many views a piece gets compared to sales.
Stats would be super

By Stats I mean stats only visible to the owner of the piece once he/she has logged in. It wouldn’t be something just anyone could see.
1. Ability for the Author to send out a message, twice a week (max), to inform his purchasers of update to a script, or news.
If you can’t do that, make it automatic that a buyer is informed when their purchased product was updated. I have buyers emailing me with errors in previous versions of scripts because they neglected to see any updates via ThemeForest.net.
2. Allow for custom amount of deposit, as long as it’s greater than $10.00. I’ve had buyers email me wanting to buy my script, but can only deposit $20. (My script is $15). They call and email me asking for it, but I have to decline because of my exclusivity deal with ThemeForest.net.
How are the designs going? I am anxious to see them! Perhaps you can post mockups and receive feedback?
Oh, and of course, increase the author rates. I am happy to be a red paw, but I’ve sold over $1000, and have less than $400 to show for it, even though I am exclusive.
