This past week I have done a small modification for $8 and another tricky modification for $140

The biggest modification I was willing to take on at the start of the year was $800. Anything more than that I just don’t have the time to build so I tell them to find someone on http://studio.envato.com/ or ask here on the forums.

PhpStorm – by far the best IDE ever! Especially once you get the keyboard shortcuts under control.

A mind boggling number of features. Especially around refactoring, auto completion, error detection and live JS/PHP debugging.

If you don’t mind living on the edge, search for “phpstorm eap” and grab the free “beta” they release every month or so.

But it’s well worth the license cost – actually the only desktop software I pay for.

@vonconrad : Let us upload images for the desciption.. And then, fetch all existing images to your sever. easy?

this doesn’t work with all the stats/map/tracking images that people use. needs to bounce through a proxy like they did with cloudfront a few years back.

Search ” github dtbaker Envato scraper”. A few people use that script to gain access to full statement data. On phone now can’t find it

Self hosted is going through a down phase, while some (not all!) hosted solutions are on the rise.

These stats are a huge estimation but will be interesting to see if it swings back around closer to oct/nov like past years.

and assumed that the browser blocked a malware.

They probably assumed correctly :) Google for “hacking team Flash exploit”. A third exploit was discovered today that that is used by governments and law enforcement. This most likely prompted the flash block by ff

Could be related to certain recent exploits. I’ll be both sad and happy to see an official end of life date from adobe.

So, does anyone have a favorite Flash based website?

What are people’s thoughts about having an Elite section? I’m unsure but I’d be keen for your thoughts?

This idea has been thrown around quite a lot.

It would be wonderful to have an Elite section where we can discuss all sorts of juicy marketplace related topics and tactics.

@chilli_orange lots of people have tried to start 3rd party chat rooms, google groups, irc chanels, etc.. and honestly they just don’t get enough numbers to work (or they are left unmoderated and just turn a link spam fest). Trying to set something up for only elite authors (an even smaller target market) might get a few signups but probably won’t be worth the time. I think the best way to get something like this going is through the new forum platform that is about to be launched. Hopefully they can work some magic for us :)

@Matthew please try to stick a post-it note onto someones desk about implementing an Elite only forum – just to see if it’s possible :) would be great to get some pro-con feedback from staff on this topic too.
