This is a business relationship and envato is screwing all his members right now.
That is exactly what I’m talking about. I doubt they will reconsider their decision.
Their “direct transactions between buyer and author [since 2006]” is obvious fraud. And have a “judicial capacity”.
It was great having Envato as reliable business partner. Now instead on focusing on my work, I have to sit and think “what’s next?”.
We’re working to improve all the documentation we issue, and collecting information such as country of residence and VAT numbers is part of that. In the new year, we’ll be rolling out VAT compliant invoices to buyers and sellers, along with more informative statements. In tandem will be more releases requiring more details from users of Envato Market to ensure that documents are accurate and well composed.
Did you guys recognize that they are now slowly making the shift from calling us “authors” to calling us “sellers”?For envato, we are the sellers. We should not accept this. The system is commission and we need to change the terms to finally reflect that properly.
They can call us whatever they like. Commission-based model that they were/are using is enough evidence for every accountant/tax advisor/ and lawyer if needed.
Since Envato tries to censor this thread: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/preparing-for-upcoming-vat-changes/151408
Ill repeat here, in a “proper place”, what I’ve tolled there.
It seems like Envato have some serious trouble with tax authorities. Obviously they want to pass the buck on authors. And naturally do not want us to discuss it.
The truth is that authors were receiving commissions since 2006 till 2014. You can remove it from membership terms or posts, but you cannot remove it from our banking accounts stats
Like @creiden said, test your page on bigger screens and in different browsers as layout looks “broken”.
Actually, you are reviewing creative work of other people. Show this mockup to a review team and ask would they accept such design
Gosh, it’s crap! First icons, now this.. Guys, you are a big company, hire a designer already.
Have you noticed that some comments are never appearing on the authors dashboard?
I’ve been noticing this for quite a while, but now issue became even more apparent. It’s not cool when someone asks something in comments and never gets a reply while all other comment being are replied..
As you know, Dan recently left as Elite Program Manager and Natalia has been filling in on top of her already overflowing schedule as Community Manager. The good news is we’re almost done with the hiring process for our new Elite Program Manager, so we’ll be introducing them soon I hope
@KingDog, ah, understood! Thanks for explaining.
@revaxarts, you had an instruction manual regarding Vegemite? You’re lucky! We had no manual and consequences were disastrous!
Since reaching the new level 2 weeks ago I received quick congratulations from Natalia (when she was contacting me regarding Express Withdrawals) and.. that’s it. No usual info regarding perks, no details on ad campaign, anything. There’s a strong contrast with what it was before.
So who’s in charge of Envato Elite program now? Does this program still work?
