As far as I know there are no provisions in place to upgrade your license – you’ll have to buy an additional extended license if you decide you need one at a later stage.

Then again, you do get the benefit of looking through the file and trying it out for the (significantly cheaper) price of the regular license if you get that one before spending more on an extended license. ;)

for sure is not activeden :D
I wonder if any activedenners cheated the system on 100% rates day. Buy your item 3 times and get it to number 1 on the weekly best sellers! :D

What good is that going to do at this point, though? ;)

Very much appreciated, Alex. I find myself agreeing with the vast majority of the points you make, and it appears that you have really hit home on the important issues. I hope a staff member is willing to pick this up, as this kind of feedback should not be ignored. The only way to continue the success that the Envato marketplaces have had is by not only listening, but also acting upon these outcries. This is, of course, directly related to the first issue that you pose – it is definitely time Envato became a bit more vocal towards its authors, as well as by acting accordingly.

Thanks for taking the time to put this together!

.. they will just change some small detail to make us happy until we forget about it like we did with the header.

It appears that we have a really poor collective long-term memory. :(

^ That’s wrong assumption. The easier way is: authors will agree to each other and make mutual purchases :D

But.. that’s way harder to automate :chuckle:

You do realise that any commission above 100% would create a weird incentive where people would just sit there (or fetch a friend to help) and purchase their own files all day? ;)

I’m locking this one, in favour of keeping the discussion in a central topic.

I dislike that we only get to display four, but anything more would be too big. Heck, the current four are already too large, vertically, and often set the height for forum posts. Also, what is with dropping the paw colours?

Honestly, major setback, in my personal opinion.

If your feet carry you to Slovenia/Ljubljana..

While the weather won’t be particularly great, this is definitely a great recommendation! Really an awesome city. Perhaps visit in the summer sometime, though ;)
