Nothing about buyers?
I would add these to the list:
- the buyers are very important, respect them
- the support: try to offer support in a timely manner (a reply after 7 days is not very helpful)
- the respect: show respect to the authors, in the public forums, in your private support forum, everywhere.
- the originality: don’t steal others work and change it then here and there. Sooner or later the truth will come out.
It works in Chrome. I had the same issue (loading icon forever in Firefox), but I tried with Chrome and it worked.
1) the username change will appear on your profile like this: http://awesomescreenshot.com/09155dim22
2) I don’t think there is a limit, because I’ve seen people with 3 username changes
3) to find out if a username is already taken, just sign-out from your account and try to create another account (without actually creating it), you’ll see that when you try to write the username in the username text field, at the right it’s displayed if the username is taken or not.
In line with these changes, I think a very useful feature would be to have a “version” field for each item.
And in the comments section, it would be helpful to see (when a buyer comments) the version to which the comment is related.
Hi Luke, I’m not sure if it’s 100% related to this, but someone might want to check out these buyers issue: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/unauthorized-when-checking-out/188348
Collis is actually very busy designing extremely important community graphics at the moment
In fact Collis and Cyan Ta’eed are busy with something else They have just won, a couple of hours ago the “Entrepreneur of the Year” title: https://twitter.com/envato/status/629258157278105600 which is quite a great achievement btw! Congratulations!
This is why Concurrent Versions Systems were invented, You’d better use one, CVS, SVN, or GIT repositories. Or you can set up a versioning system locally, on one of the developers computers, accessible only for your team, remotely.
You’d better ask Envato support for an official answer, but I remember I’ve seen in the forums a couple of buyers complaining that they cannot purchase anymore with credit cards.
Beautiful start on Instagram too!
I rather have another question: some people seem to have up-to-date accounts on all social channels, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Behance, Dribble, Linkedin, Flickr, Reddit and so many more…
What’s the strategy? How do people keep pace with all these? They have a person especially for this task? Or they update at once all the channels….
Personally I find it difficult because I use Facebook for personal news and sharing, Instagram to look at things I admire (like interior design examples), Google+ to discuss with my family. Several Twitter accounts for various campaigns or for professional stuff…Occasionally Linkedin to check where my old colleagues are working and so on….
I would love to hear about people strategies! (strategies, not links to personal channels or profiles )
I’m sorry to say this, because I love Envato Market, but when things become complicated and difficult and heavy, they tend to fall apart.
I’m not a dreamer, I’m not 20 years old anymore and I’m realistic. I’m 38 years old and the same happened to the successful company where I worked. The same happened to a lot of things around me. They thought they will improve things, but what they did was in fact to complicate more and to go down. I really really hope this is not going to happen.
