Sorry used wrong word, replace “motivate” with “help”. :D

Ok, that makes more sense. Either way, I’m sure they have their reasons/arguments for changing it.

Since we are now on the same page, I always thought that the sole purpose of having a colored button was to make navigation easier/faster and objective to find, and so, never really had a problem with the old format. The new upload box is enormous…

Makes me want to upload a new item, just to see if it will gradually become smaller again. Wait a minute, I think they got me!

If you’re an author, you’ll notice some small changes to the author dashboard today.

The upload box and item comments have both received some tweaks.

You will see more changes around the author dashboard in the coming weeks as we improve author tools and make it easier to sell on the marketplaces!

Thanks Bensh Ithett, you are champ hero! You smile is very handsome. I like when you tweak my upload. What is next you play with on my marketplace?

There are so many things to be changed and improved and you move a box from an ok place to a bad place. Don’t tell me that’s your best Envato.

Can Envato please stop doing stuff nobody requested and start doing some of already requested ones?

I agree that “upload item box” is not that important to be at the top of the dashboard. It was fine on the sidebar. I think i’ll be uploading maximum 1 new item/month, but i’ll be checking for new user comments several times in one day, so the box get’s in the way a little bit.

But i’m looking forward to the other changes :)

That upload new item box on top of the comments annoys me to death, I don’t want it there, I don’t upload items daily, and even if I would do it, it was just fine on the sidebar, please revert this change, in my opinion is useless.

I have to agree with most of the others. This wasn’t a neccesary step. I don’t need the upload form very often and I guess new authors will find it at the old position too.

I don’t need the filler flap of my car next to the steering wheel just because some newbies don’t know where it could be

What I like to see on the dashboard:

  • New Item Comments
  • New Ratings for items
  • New public collections with my items
  • New important stuff for authors
  • Better summery of sales for the current week
  • more fun facts :bigsmile:

Totally agree. Useless update and useless waist of man power. Why don’t you make some updates that users request? Instead you go and change a position of upload box. Why? Does anyone complain that they have problems to find that upload box on the right? I don’t get it.
