Well the author is not responding to any support tickets. So that’s a dead end. And no, there’s no misunderstanding. I should’ve read the shitty comments on the item before buying it. I guess Envato doesn’t care that it’s selling crap to its customers.

Well, the sheer amount of products makes it impossible to keep everyone in check. That’s where you come in: you report this to support and the product will get looked at – they might even disable it if they find it to be in too bad shape. This is why buyer feedback is important.

My payment confirmation was oddly late this time. I received the payment 5 days ago with no problem but only got the confirmation “We just processed your request…” e-mail today, instead of on the same day as the payment. Weird.

exact same situation here
I presume when a company has to process this amount of payments then some things will be queued somewhere to spread the load?

We all know this but it’s always good to be reminded once in a while.

Money will be the thing to watch.

I lived in Suisse for 2 years and going out to eat is very expensive. You can save tons of money by cooking yourself. Coop and Migros are basic super markets and are reasonably cheap. Prepare your monthly budget and you’ll be fine though.

Renting a home in Lausanne is crazy expensive. As it is close to Genève you can imagine the prices will be ridiculous. And it will be tiny. An excellent link:

Public transport is fan-tas-tic! It’s not that cheap but you can count on it working on Swiss-clock-accuracy. Swiss people complain when a train is 2 MINUTES late. You might be able to save money by pre-paying for the term of your stay.

Health insurance is mostly in private hands so you’ll have to make a deal with an insurance company (required by law). Pay attention to this one because some of these guys are real cowboys just trying to get you into a high payment plan which might not suit your needs. I’d go for the minimum unless your work over there will be dangerous. Ask your future students for advice.

The Lausanne area is beautiful to live in. Mountains piling up in your face, amazing you every day, it’s close to everything and has a diverse population. You’ll love it!

I totally agree with that. With the current flow of never ending submission the reviewers are overflown with files to be checked. But I still think envato should do something about it. Maybe adding more standard messages to reject items (not only the one with “your item does not meet our quality standards”) so the author could get a sense about what is wrong with his file. You know… make that rejection more meaningful.

*Devil’s advocate incoming
If employees are overflown with work, is that something we should be worrying about? I’m inclined to think that this is a non-argument when we’re talking about a company running a healthy annual profit so that’s something they should address and not something that should be used as an excuse. Too much work? Hire more people. Improve the process.

Btw: the current review system is fine to me and I don’t mind waiting.

People should be contacting you via your profile with a verified e-mail address – because they registered here with a valid e-mail. When they don’t you have no way of checking whether they have bought the item or not.

These procedures are there for a reason and customers should follow them :)

Hello!

Lately I’ve been getting may requests for customization for one of my CodeCanyon items (the CodeIgniter one) and since I’m swamped with work I have no time at all to do this for my customers. Not a problem for me in itself but in stead of having to deny the request every time and telling the customer to go look for a developer themselves I’d like to build a list with a couple of people who would like to be contacted whenever I get such a request.

Should you be interested, these are the skills involved:
- expert CodeIgniter
- understanding and customizing jQuery, AJAX
- work independently
- good English read/write skills
- translate customer needs into code
- professional behaviour towards customers, build a relationship with your customer
- possibly some work proving your skills? this will greatly improve your chances of getting selected by the customer.

You’ll work directly with the customer, the general idea is that you are their main developer without any interference form me. As soon as I get a customization request I’ll pass this list on to the customer (personal data will be hidden). Once he picks a person I’ll contact you to ask if you are available and if so pass on your contact data to the customer. I’ll be available to you when you have questions on the standard code.

Should you be interested to be on the list let me know via the profile contact form and list up your skills/portfolio so that I can add you.
Have a nice day.
