Every so often, we like to take a look at what has been a hot topic or popular thread on the marketplace forums. Our forums are the virtual water cooler of the marketplaces which is home to over 500,000 members!
If you’re not already a member of the Envato marketplaces, why not join now? Each marketplace has it’s own thriving forums with plenty of users with similar interests. There’s also no better place to get the feedback of your peers when preparing a new item for the marketplaces other than the marketplace forums. The knowledge our users have continues to surprise me everyday.
Let’s check out some of the notable threads on the forums these past few weeks!

- Kailoon wants to play a game. Not in the creepy “Saw” type of way but more in the way of asking buyers their opinions on item features. If you’re a buyer this is a great way to give feedback on items you’d like to see. If you’re an author, take note, this is a great chance to get inside the mind of ThemeForest buyers.
- Attention WP Authors – Mark has announced that there will be some type of item purge for WP items that are running WP 2.6 & 2.7. Please note, if you’re theme support WP 2.8 or higher, this does not apply to you. If you’re running something older than 2.8 then you should update your item!
