If they really want to improve the experience: Instead of trying to force this, I would suggest to make it easier for authors to support their items. I am not talking about a full fledged support solution on the marketplace, I actually prefer my own support forums where I can add features as I see fit, but an oAuth login for example is long overdue.
Same here, it is much easier and convenient to provide the support via our own system. I use the help forum and zendesk. I have a huge knowledgebase and documentation on my own site. I do not want to move to another system.
You have to remember that you are in the minority. The vast majority of authors on the Marketplace do not have their own external support systems in place and I do not think it is fair to expect them to develop their own solutions to a problem effectively forced on them by Envato.

Authors have been asking for an integrated support system for a very long time. After 3 years of waiting your response is to make support mandatory for 6 months and to take a 30% cut without providing the support system we originally pleaded for.

Yes you can use (some) HTML tags in the description textbox. You might find this useful: http://revaxarts-themes.com/envatitor/

Artzone’s advise is completely wrong. You can’t use other peoples images without their permission. If you do not own the copyright to an image you cannot use it.

You have three choices:
  1. Create your own.
  2. Use an online generator to create some.
  3. Ask copyright holders for permission to use their images. A good idea might be to ask local musicians as they are more accessible.

I think there is a distinction between the literal definition of “parallax” and the web design trend labelled parallax which is actually a broad term used to describe any type of layered scrolling effect.

If the background and page content are not scrolling at the same speed (even if that means the background is not scrolling at all) then it is a parallax effect. I agree it’s a quick and easy parallax, but it is parallax none the less.

What in my reply made you think I was upset? I was just asking you to clarify what your point was as it wasn’t very clear in your post.

Are you saying?

a.) All items added to the marketplace should never be removed so you will always have access to the download.

Or…

b.) All items (specifically WordPress themes) added to the marketplace should be maintained indefinitely by the author until the day they die or WordPress is discontinued.

@luxerman, can you post a few examples of the type of sites you are talking about. I know the type of business you are referring to when you say “blue collar” but I don’t know any that have particularly good sites that exist out there in the wild. I’d love a few examples.

What do the small business types that you list need in a website that a “Corporate” theme doesn’t provide?
