The down time caused the fall, for example on Wednesday when envato got hit the hardest, we alone lost at least $500 statistically that day.

Potential loss though, in reality you didn’t lose anything ;)

That’s about 5 days of intermittent site outages now, they will definitely be hurting sales.

Slower sales on popular page authors too, so you’re right.

23 sales in total for the 1st/2nd/3rd… none today. I guess it’s party time! God bless America and all who sail in her… and all that jazz.

Yep 7 sales Friday and zero today – but to be expected ;)

So, taking all factors into consideration, we’ve decided to:

  • Keep the new screenshot lightbox
  • Make the main image link to screenshots by default unless there is a live preview – in which case it will go to the live preview (or do nothing if no screenshots or live preview)
  • Add an overlay on hover on the main image which provides a cue to users to show that a) the main image is clickable and b) what will happen when they click

Success!

I still don’t understand why screenshots became priority over a live demo link.. screenshots are just complimentary to the live demo. The only case where screenshots should be priority is for PSD’s and graphics.. but why did it have to affect items like themes too, and in most cases theme authors aren’t even uploading screenshots. Envato should rather focus on creating specific functionality for the various types of items for better UX and to maximize conversions.

We have a holiday this weekend, so many people have taken this week off and/or next week from work. Sales may be slow from the U.S. as we celebrate our independence the 4th of July.

Seems so, this week is much slower than last week.

I think it had something to do with the leap second being added at the end of June, which is when Envato went down.. read here
