Good intentions, but when a buyer sees a flagged comment on a new item it creates a negative atmosphere. So because of this these things should probably be reported to support instead.

That’s very true. I’ve mentioned this to support along with a couple of other people but they’ve got a lot on their plate at the mo!

Made it to the third week before I was threatened with divorce :( There’s always next year.

I didn’t want to derail xstortionist’s ‘We have a winner’ thread as a few authors were asking why their “hi great work GLWS !” had been removed from item comments.

I’m going to own up to flagging a few of these but exclusively the ones from the one or two mewer authors who were systematically using other themes’ comments sections as their own personal advertising space.

Take a look at the last 50 or so submissions in any of the categories on TF and the same couple of guys (or girls!) have posted ‘great work GLWS ’ on every single one. Every single one without fail. Probably no coincidence that these authors have their portfolio URL in their avatar as well.

I imagine that other ppl had noticed this trend as well and mistakenly flagged some other comments that were genuine messages of support.

TLDR : to those authors continually using other people’s theme comments to increase their on presence on TF, please don’t as it’s a pain in the arse enough having to go through comments sections to find answers :)

@Kops I love the photos of your new home office. Enjoy it! I’d love to post those photos in a Featured Workspace post on Envato Notes. What do you think?

Sounds fun! Will have some better photos of the interior once the office is decorated properly – where to send?

We decided against carpet for purely that reason – cleaning!

We built two sheds, both extra high, because they were to be used for offices, higher ceilings easier to manage heat.

Prior to ac being fitted, we recorded temps internally, in bare shed, in excess of fifty degrees c.

Ach you lucky bugger you live in a land with lots of sunshine (and man-sized spiders :S) whereas we are in the cold and damp UK. Before the heaters went in we were working in winter coats and hats. Ever tried operating a small laptop mouse with skiing gloves on? :(

Something like that could easily be achieved with a couple of hacks to Goodlayers’ Green Earth theme.

My mother has a habit of saying, “Super Dooper” when things are going well. When visiting the in-laws in Poland, she wasn’t told it meant “Nice Arse” in Polish and left a trail of confused and amused Poles in her wake.

Re. the theme, I must say I was surprised when I saw it was $35.

Hi – we’ve just done exactly this! It was finished a week ago, we finished painting the interior a couple of days ago and moved in yesterday.

I can’t give you any specifics although the company site drills into a lot of detail about the insulation they use http://www.oecogardenrooms.co.uk/pages/thermal-insulation.html

We have got acoustic insulation and when the doors are closed, we’ve had music playing full blast through a sub-woofer the size of a large family pet and you can barely hear a thing outside.

For flooring we jsut slapped down some decent underlay and then laminate on top. All the budget had gone on the build so nothing left for proper wood floors!

Electricity is the bitch. We had to come off a spur form the main house which meant digging 2 separate trenches through the garden. One for the data cables and one for the main electricity. Keep the two separate and at least a foot apart to prevent interference.

I can get much more in depth answers to any of your questions once I’ve quizzed my colleague in whose garden this sits and put in most of the effort sourcing the company and doing the details.
