Unfortunately it’s just a cross you’re going to have to bear, take note of the delete text on the item edit screen “once deleted cannot be undone”. Whilst what you’re doing makes a lot of sense, and it’s coming from a good place, remember the other side of it, “this guy just deleted an old file and re-uploaded it, double exposure etc.”
Then I guess I’ll have to update the existing theme and write a tutorial for existing customers on how to update it.
I developed a theme as a hobby and uploaded it on ThemeForest about a year ago. Now it’s kinda obsolete but people are still buying it. I wish to re-write the ENTIRE code, base it off on a different framework, optimize it and upload it again. I want to remove the existing theme files from Themeforest and upload the whole thing anew. Is it allowed??

Just a headsup. This may be an exception, but do not trust anything that comes from w3schools
Probably whatever small usage share of IE8 we see are just developers testing their sites on IE8.
Sure ThemeForest has made IE8 support voluntary and sure as hell that’s a big relief to all of us but I can’t help bring it to your notice that IE8 still enjoys 10% of the browser usage share (as per May 2014 data) and that’s a lot. So I would say try as much as you can to make your theme atleast load up nicely on IE8. No need to fine-tune it to perfection. Even let go some CSS related issues but make sure all the content load up and links work on IE8.
Why this topic keeps coming up, is because exposure of new items is dependent on the competency of humans… an automated system with complex filtering options would be a fail safe system, and will always auto correct itself regardless of what reviewers approve, and then we won’t have any threads like this anymore – that’s for sure.
Excellent analysis. TF need to come up with some sort of mechanism based on the ‘decay’ factor of the themes. They should devise a complex formula comprising of ( number of sales / how many days old / author’s reputation / theme’s ratings / author’s ratings) to list the items on the homepage. This is what Facebook does. A recently published new post with 0 likes is pushed below a post with 10 likes posted few hours ago.
Thanks Envato. Managed to get 4 sales under 70% commission. That’s equivalent to selling 2 more items.
Very cool. Traveling around the world is my dream too.. You are more than welcome in India. If you are going to start your journey from Thailand, it’s best to start India from South to the way up. Some really great temples down south, white desert (Kutch, Gujarat) and metropolis Mumbai, Gateway of India in the the west , beautiful hills side and wildlife national parks in the east (don’t miss Cherrapunji here, the wettest place in the world), and some great religious culture (Varanasi, Mathura, etc) and monuments in north (Taj Mahal, Qutub Minar, etc). Would love to grab a coffee when you are around Mumbai.
Have a great trip!!
