Help! I am a theme purchaser and was merely logging in to Envato to see what the latest version of my theme was. I wasn’t sure which tab to click on my profile so clicked on dashboard to see my previous purchases. A pop-up came up and quickly clicked something to get it out of my face to see my theme and all of a sudden I am an author. I never wanted to be an author and don’t want to be. How do I get out of this? I can’t seem to delete it from my profile now. I am by no means a theme author! Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
You should contact support for this.
Though there isn’t really any negative effects from being an Author. You have nothing on your profile stating that you are, and you have no items for sale, so technically you’re not really an Author.
