A HUGE thank you to all the buyers of my themes over the past couple of months, you guys & gals are great & I wouldn’t be writing this if it wasn’t for the great buyers here on ThemeForest.
Also a massive thank you for the support from all the authors around these parts as well, especially Tobias (PPandP) as well as Mike (ProgressionStudios) who have both helped in there own way to make my development & support structure a success.
Once again, thanks everyone, this will put a smile on my face for a long time
I’d be interested in the meetup, leeds is great for me
Thanks for the update meanthemes
I don’t think the item will be rejected, bit your update will if its not satisfactory.
It would also be super-fantastic if Envato were able to globally announce (maybe in the header bar above the toolbar where Microlancer currently is) about the changes to the Twitter API and how it will have a far reaching effect on a lot of the items sold on their marketplace.
I could do with an official word from Envato TBH, A number of my themes use a ‘feature’ tweet (like many others) that will be made invalid by the new Twitter 1.1 style guidelines, not to mention the horror of actually now trying to provide a decent twitter widget solution.
So I ask Envato this, have you / are you planning on making buyers aware of what’s happening? Because the general feel of this thread is that most authors are planning on retiring twitter support across all themes, I’m thinking of doing the same.
My worry is, if buyers have not been educated about these catastrophic API changes, then any authors planning a retirement for integrated twitter solutions are going to receive an inevitable backlash from buyers, which could, in some authors cases, result in 1000’s of messages, support requests etc.
I think sometimes an authors inability to contact buyers results in a situation like this, we can’t pre-warn, we can’t inform and educate & the result is that many themes and templates are about to break, whether integrating a new solution or retiring the old, I’m sure most people are about the feel the burden..
Very cool, thanks
Not a funny reason, but an awesome one;
My friend has been a little down on his luck as of late, to get through it he’s been doing video game illustrations, and they’re AWESOME! Check them out;http://www.a4man.com
He really loved Bioshock 1 and has been pretty desperate to play Bioshock Infinite so that he can start doing some illustrations of the game, so I say this, if you like his style and references in his illustrations then let’s send him the game so that he can do some awesome Infinite illustrations
I think this would be a good idea if we had the following control:
1. Ability (optionally) to show the contact form only on items that the customer has not yet purchased
2. The ability to label this box as we see fit, for example “Pre-Purchase Questions”
The problem is that for those of us that use external support forums, this is just going to confuse customers even more unless we can customize its purpose. Sounds great for pre-purchase questions, but once the user has purchased I would want this box to disappear (and optimally be replaced by my own custom button linking to a support forum)By the way, the other great thing about this idea is that the email could include a reference to the page it was sent from – I can’t tell you how many requests I get where the customer does not identify which product they’re referring to
Exactly this +1
I have absolutely no problem with 1-star ratings, if someone isn’t happy, then so be it. In the end, if a theme has 20 5-stars and 1 1-star, then it’s pretty clear to everyone involved what’s going on, I mean, look at the breakdown for Avada, I doubt that’s going to change it’s sales!
The only situation in which 1-stars scare me are ‘Whoops, I need a refund’ situations, i.e;
‘I bought your theme and it doesn’t work with wp.com – I need a refund…’
Now what scares me a little there is that if Envato don’t honour the refund, they’re likely to take anger on the file since a few buyers don’t distinguish Envato from authors.
In which case I think all star ratings need leaving well alone, but if a refund is requested & denied then there should be at least a little investigation into 1-star sabotage.
