Perhaps Envato marketing team did a research and they found a surprising fact that badges sell more than the identity of the authors. Perhaps.
1) People can copy our item, but they cannot copy our style.
Even if they can, still they’d be ten steps behind us.
2) Easy come easy go.
The career of true artist sustains for decades in long term; while the copycats, they only come and go. We always see cheaters everywhere, but none of them survive in the business.
Keeping Envato’s forum clean from bad posts must be a tough job for Volunteer Moderators like you, right? How long have you been doing this, Enabled?
There are 4M members here. How many moderators here?
Great, Envato! Definitely this is an innovative idea.
So the big picture is: Envato wants to mix product (tangible) and service (intangible)’.
In physical world, a theme support is like an IT contract job in a definite period.
Perhaps you could consider to take some part of Envato Studio system, and then apply them to Themeforest functionality.
- Themeforest provides official support (from the author).
- Envato Studio provides “unofficial support” and customization services (which provided by third party service providers).
Seeing design problem in big picture helps us to get a clearer perspective and will lead us to solutions.

Some big marketplaces out there provide options for ‘undiscovered’ and ‘random’ in their search feature.
- ‘Undiscovered’ is for users who want to see unique items. It’s like saying “I want to be different. I don’t want those popular wp themes again and again“
- ‘Random’ is like saying “Surprise me!”.
This way, it would be easier for users to reach older items which have low sales / low exposures.

In 2014, people should find a way to make flat design not boring.
Flat is being overrated… and lots of newbie designers (who are interested with this trend) tend to copy and make things look the same.
(don’t get us wrong, we don’t hate flat design. We all like flat style – as we like swiss style, helvetica design and modernism).
