Very interesting, like competition arrives on themeforest so other marketplaces are rising. Envato wake up, the critical mass effect does not apply on this kind of business.

Ok, this is just an idea merged from a bad sleepy night, but…
What about if Envato is growing hugely and quickly in term of files and users (bundles brings a big bunch of new them) for an upcoming BIG sale? fishy thinking! :P
Ya, my joke was already written on the first page. But I’m pretty sure we’ll get there.

I dont know about bundles, but if envato doesnt do something really quick about some major issues stated here (first what comes to my mind is search engine, video rollovers @ videohive,... Etc) competition might crash them at some point. I hope they’re aware of that. Imho, often bundles arent helping either.

I just want to add a little comment, in hopes of helping Envato understand the underlying problem here. It must be tough going through all these comments and grasping the source issue. I’ll try to summarize it in one sentence.

You are prioritizing things (read features, visual changes, bundles, etc.) over requests that we, as authors, consider essential to the positive growth of the marketplace(s).

Instead of the 50+ design-related changes you have done in the past 3 years, you could have improved the rating system. Instead of the useless bar to my left, you could have put the reply-button on the comments-section under each reply. Instead of adding the “Upload item” feature to our dashboards (which, I am sorry, but I find completely senseless), you could have simply enabled us to see all of our followers, you could have dedicated 3 months to producing a good searching-system, shopping carts, a way for authors to communicate with buyers anonymously, and oh so much more.

Guys, it’s not about throwing rocks at you, but you keep doing struff that we (or at least I) can’t really comprehend. We have asked for features that are simply essential, necessary to the marketplaces, and we have received exactly the opposite (with some exceptions of course). I stood behind your back when the requests were 1, 3, 4, 5 months old.. but it’s been 3 years! The Envato marketplaces have always been strong because of their strong relationship with the community. If you decide that adding, for example, a “Upload item” feature to the author dashboard will enhance the author’s UX, then tell us why, talk to us.

Suggestion for Envato: hold surveys at least twice a year, short ones, that ask authors about features they most think would help the marketplace, for everyone (and same, for buyers), then take action on Those top 2-3 requests from buyers/sellers alike. Surveys and followup are essential for top sales.
