Well that is cool to wait and buy when I need support, but if I don’t buy now I lose the discount.
I don’t use any support - ZERO Support - on at least eight sites. I am a very small player. Many of my websites are “model homes” and only my potential clients look at them. Less than 100 visits a year.
It is about Envato changing the rules
** after I setup my business model on the old rules.
People who bought between 2012 and 2015 should get support. Period.
Envato will not go broke keeping their promise to those who supported them BACK WHEN THEY WERE THE SMALL GUY.
Envato is making plenty of money. I am not asking to get something for free - neither should I pay for something I am not going to us. I am a capitalist too, but I play fair.
On the other hand, I totally understand that Authors can’t continue and should never have to support users who do not read documentation, do not know any HTML, use themes to learn WordPress. Those people screwed us just like all abusers in any walk of life (shoplifters, hackers, etc.)
Bottom line - it is about Envato corporate fat cat profit.
Let’s just be honest about.
