Honneslty, you should change to a light-gray, as my example below. It took a good 30 seconds to remove saturation and lighten to make it look like a proper “i don’t have a profile photo yet” user avatar.

In the envato UX, that green is the “highlight” color for important things like purchase button, etc.. Is the default avatar really deserving that highlight status?

Seriously, look at this image and the image posted by GravityDept 3 posts up. Which one is the most appropriate and make the forum more readable?

Can we expect a change, or does the designer love the art direction too much and with time, we hopefully will too? :P

I am personally not a fan of multipurpose themes for the following reasons:

1) They are bloated and tend to load slower than a single-theme, this is due to an increase in the number of scripts used

2) They can be confusing for clients, most of my clients just want to be able to edit the text and a few colours and not have to deal with different layouts, different header styles etc

3) They aren’t brandable, if I buy a single niche theme e.g. a kindergarten I can brand this to my clients business, the multipurpose themes tend to be bland and boring (imho)

4) From a developers pov, if a client wants a certain feature added / removed, it can be a pain to find the right template and the right line of code as it’s just a jumble of functions doing if elses of the theme options,

I always get my clients to choose niche themes related to their industry as (in my opinion) they are better designed (for their purpose) and aren’t trying to do 10 other things.

There is a market for multipurpose themes but I find it’s the “noob buyers” who aren’t sure what they want and just buy the theme with the most options so they can test out every option.

Thanks for sharing your views.

Any one, who live in high rise skyscrapers/villas, can share their experience or thoughts?

How it would be if the Created date is not displayed while updated date is displayed for items?

Buyer get negative feelings when they see the created date and the sales are low even you update theme by excellent changes to your older themes.

If the created date is not seen and the updated date is seen, then the client feel that the theme is updated and willing it buy it.

Same thing happened to me for 2 items from the same author and same day a month back.

Envato should concentrate on this seriously.
