My feedback, for what it’s worth, is that it’s worked as-is just fine and dandy for 6 years therefore it’s not broken therefore it does not need fixing. The only thing that hasn’t worked so far is Envato’s ability to define what should and should not be expected when buying micro stock.

White color is the simplest to see the eye :)
Actually white as a background when consuming information causes eye strain as mentioned by Firsh
Actually there is more people who will say light color on dark background causes eye strain- this is the reason content on white as a background gets larger audience (including majority of the buyers).

Yes white text on a black background should never be used as it causes severe eye strain, so does black on white but not as immediate – a calmer reading and browsing experience would be to simply lighten the gray slightly, however it’s perfectly fine right now. What is in question here is not black on white, or white on black. It’s actually all about contrast. Too much contrast causes eye strain. Period.

Too bright. Who uses full black or full white as backrounds nowadays? It’s always good to pull the brightness in a bit, like TV levels 16-235 instead of 0-255. So you when you do need the full black or full white you have that leverage to have something brighter and something darker, as an option. Unnecessary change IMHO, will put in userstyle anyway to counter the whiteness (in a dark room the grey is pleasant, dark is awesome, white is eyestrain). If anything, we should be having dark background like Lightroom and Photoshop (especially on PD/GR/VH where visual things are sold). http://ux.stackexchange.com/questions/8153/what-are-the-negative-and-positive-aspects-of-dark-color-scheme

Exactly.

Yes! I don’t understand why the download is being removed. When you buy a consumer product like an iPhone and that iPhone is discontinued, Apple doesn’t knock on your door and take it back from you. So digital products should be the same unless there is a specific reason like @Enabled mentioned.

No that’s a physical product not digital – removing from sale doesn’t remove the buyers copy on their hard drive. A better example would be I buy an iPhone 4, apple stops selling the iPhone 4, therefore I can no longer get an iPhone 4. That’s the current same situation with files here, i.e. it is no longer for sale therefore I can no longer get the file. We are proposing a better experience for buyers, we allow them to get that iPhone 4 for an extra 30 days after it stopped being on sale.

I have no issue with the x days after deletion from sale and notification to buyers that if they need / want it then you have 30 days (or something like that).

Never presume. Never follow someone else. Always track everything and watch and study. Just because Google doesn’t do something (their goals are far far different than a marketplace) doesn’t mean you should. Google doesn’t set standards for everyone, they change things daily, run huge AB tests, and will, when necessary, understand they hurt their business and revert back – plenty of times.

I’ve got an insane amount of data to show the new search has killed my sales so much so that I’m already moving on to new things, ventures and marketplaces. My sales drop and page views are horrific – but then when I do searches for items my categories are in I can’t even find them myself.
