Oh, I just saw the price, 400€ (that’s $500+ USD), quite a lot…
It’s possible authors could see lower sales for a short while. With the new header, if customers are spending time browsing other marketplaces out of curiosity, when they come back to their favorite marketplace, they’ll be spending less time shopping than they would have originally.
But I think any lost sales in the short-term will be made up in the long run, as introducing customers to new marketplaces will certainly help increase sales over time.What matters most isn’t always what customers spend today. It’s what they spend over the course of their lifetime.
Personally I don’t agree. If I came here to purchase a theme, then that’s what I’m going to do. To me it’s confusing, and this change doesn’t bring anything good, at all (just like this change: http://codecanyon.net/forums/thread/changes-to-author-dashboard/77030?page=1 which was later reverted, that was yet another “experiment” rolled out globally that no one asked/cared about it).
This is just an “experiment” as they’ve said in the official topic: http://codecanyon.net/forums/thread/hub-header-launching-tomorrow/116220 I thought experiments are done on a small group of people, furthermore in my opinion this design shouldn’t even be considered to be included in any experiments to start with.
I’ve stated my opinion already, this is one of the worst changes here (except the one when they’ve decided to move the upload button from the sidebar above the comments area for no reason, LOL).
Cool idea, but MHF has a point. This will never protect you from falling things, and I’m pretty sure this won’t work off-road
Yet another piece of art
Personally I’m not doing that. I do sell scripts that have an automatic “Copyright© Website Title”, so as soon as the customer update the title of the site, basically that changes automatically.
As Australia pointed out, no one likes to have those copyright notices all over the place, not even in the code… what’s the point in the first place? They know from where they’ve got the script and what are the implications using it.
I love it! Congrats man, you are really talented!
KingDog saidBased on the current feedback from users, what is your decision so far? Do you guys consider the option to revert the changes regarding the menu?
Let try and get this feedback thread back on track Thanks!
This change is an experiment. We’re watching, measuring and listening. The next step could indeed be a roll-back, a step forward, or a step in another direction completely.In terms of aesthetics, if we were to stick with this basic structure, we’d like to see some refinement and polish for sure. In terms of functionality, we’re watching the metrics, and it’s far too early to draw conclusions.
So the new menu is just an experiment? (I thought that experiments are made on a certain amount of people instead of making it a global release). Glad to hear that you actually consider a roll-back and do a proper refinement of the old menu layout instead of the new one, I was thinking you were going to flat the elements out since you’ve updated your logo and the envato.com website).
I think put the site switcher back to how it was, because it was working perfectly. And rather use all the resources and time on redesigning the home page, maybe start with that welcome block. 33 page discussion on a menu that no one asked for, or even fines useful is a bit of a waste of time. I think we have bigger fish to fry.
Yup, the switcher menu was a great feature which I loved.
If anything… I was expecting to work the same (pretty much same structure) but with a better design, or at least to come up with something decent.
