CodingJack saidThanks, but I would hardly consider myself famous. I’ll be forgotten about in another week, I’m sure.
+1 on the congrats. It isn’t often someone from the community becomes famous!
lol three years later, BOOM! we’re still talking about jake. You are famous, congrats ^^
I joined a year ago when MSFX made a similar announcement. I can only say it is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Mind has never been sharper. Acquired strong discipline, kept getting stronger and faster everyday and continue to do so even now. My body is doing things I never thought possible. Go for it mates and crack workouts one after another. For those that never quit, you will see fast results as your body adapts and you shed fat, tone your body and make muscle.
For years, I used to jog long distance almost daily before I joined. I thought I was fit until I did my first workout, APHRODITE, took me 58minutes to complete. I was in pain for the next 3 days. Quite simply because I never moved most of the muscles in my upper body before. I would see people do Aphrodite in 15minutes and below and just couldn’t believe how that was even humanly possible until a few months later, I hit sub 15. Been smashing one workout after another since.
Improved my running too by a great deal. From 7mins per km now I’m doing 4mins on half marathon distance and keep improving with each run. I am also learning new skills. So far out of 6 skills, I’ve unlocked only 3 but no rush. This is my way of life now. #eathealthy and #trainsmart
MSFX top mate, thanks buddy! I owe you one
^ They are making this change apparently. Read response from andrew : Testing interest in theme installation services from the ThemeForest Purchase Flow
In my opinion. when a sale is made on Envato market, that should be seen as one transaction. When an installation service happens on the same product on another website – Envato Studio, that should be seen as a secondary transaction. Therefore the author, as the owner and seller of the product, should always take a share every-time a transaction is made involving their product .. so the author, as owner and seller of the product, should actually be providing Envato a licence first to allow Envato to sell installation services on their products on another website.
+infinity! It does not make sense any otherway.
Royalties need to be paid to the legal owner of a copyrighted piece of work. I’m very disappointed at how this is being handled. If you want to use my item to bring supply and demand together for Envato studio and make money commercially, then pay the royalty
There is no advantage of jQuery over vanilla anymore. All would fall on their knees when performance matters.
Don’t believe me. See for yourself.http://youmightnotneedjquery.com
^ All true, I do not believe you need jquery at all, however, this is a finished working, tested and maintained set of UI components. Sure, performance is better no doubt but negligible when you compare the time invested in removing jquery and then maintaining that code. It is a huge burden imho done in the name of micro optimizations. You would also need to factor in future updates from the official channels which you will miss out on. don’t mean to discourage but all i’m seeing is tough chips with little meat on the ribs
liking the social networks! subscribed to every one, thanks contrastblack, doing a great job too! This is probably the best way to stay on top of things here
CodeBard saidQuoting post linked to by OP
i didnt see any information to that extent in any of these support/feedback threads. i must have missed. where is the point at which envato noted that it was possible to opt out of mandatory support?
*Authors with items on ThemeForest and CodeCanyon will be able to choose whether or not they support each item (on an item-by-item basis). If an author chooses to support an item, that support will be limited to 6 months from the purchase date. We will be prohibiting ‘unlimited’ and ‘lifetime’ support from being offered or advertised on Envato Market. If an item is supported we will clearly show this to buyers. ....
Just remember it’s easier to provide a free service willingly, than to provide a free service because you have to. Also the expectations of the customers will change when they know they’ve now paid for support as part of the purchase price.
I think that is the real problem in general. While you and I care about our products and reputation and will offer the free service someone else will feel free to exercise that freedom.
This obviously has a conseguence for all of us who are often working hard to maintain a good relationship with customers. Hurts the marketplace in general as well.
tbh, the benefits are hard to ignore as we are expected to offer what we are already providing for only 6 months and then renewal is required. This does leave some incentive for wanting to opt-in to support. Obviously there were other ideas pitched in which I’d rather, but this is way better than a whole lot of nothing, can’t complain
