Envato, if you don’t hear us Authors, at least listen to the Buyers
I agree with graphic4444.
Think of the huge hit in sales you’ll all suffer, authors, if us buyers think twice/skip buying because now we see some greedy subscription-type support plan TAX/expense option at checkout. Bigtime Epic FAIL. and i’m a 6+ year top envato buyer.
Please notice, that most of authors are against the paid support, so don’t blame us.. And VAT is also not our and not Envato’s idea, for that blame European Union
Don’t forget there was Memorial day in USA and Spring Bank Holiday in UK, many people probably have ‘longer’ weekends so whole week will be less busy. I’ve also got a little more sales compared to last month, but not that bad. Sales will always fluctuate unless you have Avada in your portfolio
There was once a german startup called “want2do” which was focused exactly on that kind of todos. Sadly it went offline since they haven’t earned any money with that. But it was really great with a small community and sharing want2dos and voting for them and such… Unfortunately I haven’t found any similar services like that yet.
It’s generally called “bucket list” and there is this service https://bucketlist.org/
Another brilliant UX move
I’m pretty sure it’s just ‘woocommerce’
@billyf The Contact form is moved to a Popup. If we click Contact Author, It will open a Popup.
Bring the previous contact form back, even I haven’t noticed that popup button… Seriously, what’s wrong with your UX team?
I provide support via email(Help Scout) and that contact form on support page is where 80% of tickets come from. Now it’s invisible.
I love how Envato handles controversial discussion – it’s not just this but it’s a pattern every time you introduce something new that is not welcomed by most of authors.
- Start a thread on Thursday or Friday
- After 11 pages of authors opinions say “Sorry guys it’s late here in Melbourne” – answer max 3 less important questions.
- Ignore all suggestions
- Suddenly it’s WEEKEND
Anybody knows what happened with Codestyling Localization? It’s not available anymore on https://wordpress.org/plugins/codestyling-localization/ and the homepage of that plugin seems to have version that is not working (at least for me)
I used to recommend that plugin to buyers to make quick translations (it’s easier than PoEdit). Are there any free alternatives for that?
