I blame Flat Design :)

With this is trend it’s easy to create designs without much creative skill and it can be classed as modern / trendy because it follows flat design principles. But what GR needs to check for is the precision of these Flat Design elements, it’s all about the spacing, proportion, and good colour palettes that work with each other. These are the things GR should look for to separate the good from the bad.

Yeh coming from the PSD category on ThemeForest where the standards are quite high / professional, I have to say the GraphicRiver web elements category standards are considerably lower, but a lot of these elements are being uploaded which don’t really sell well. GR needs to focus on quality, not quantity.

Haven’t had a say in 4 days, which is unusual… you think people are being more cautious with this heartbleed vulnerability?

Perhaps Envato should make a statement to assure buyers the site is safe and security is up to date.

@DS, I am able to feel you :) Authors like us who are awaiting these features for long years should now take a fresh bath, avoid sharing our frustration while commenting. Otherwise the frustration will spread unnecessarily into staff and disturb the spirit of work / research. It requires a lot of emotion control mechanism to proceed on forums for long years! LOL :D Sorry for the off topic – but I felt needed.

Agreed ;) Sounds like it’s on the right track, so we shall see!

There’s nothing preventing buyers from being part in this. In fact, we have buyers on our focus group which we have Google Hangout meetings with every week. It seems to me like you’re just frustrated and looking for any reason to nitpick our approach to this project.

Well it’s just taken so many years to get to this point, one would get frustrated. But as FastNOC explained, it sounds like he’s aware of what many of have said for years – to be honest this is the first time I’ve actually heard someone official from Envato say this after all the threads created in the past. And it’s good to hear that buyers are involved too, the marketplace should primarily be shaped around their needs and the author sales will reflect accordingly. I think I made my point so at least it’s out there and acknowledged.

The way I mentioned it, we will be able to use it to sort by rating or sales based on time frames. not just from creation, but also by updated date etc.

This is fantastic news :) You just have to understand that some of us having been talking about this for years, without anything being done.. so it’s good to hear that some suggestions are being considered – will wait and see what Envato comes up with.
