ThemeForest Community Sound-Off

As ThemeForest has literally turned into a power-house marketplace in this last year, more and more designers are making template designing their full-time jobs. With this surge in popularity, ThemeForest is going through some changes. Beginning tomorrow, we’ll be hosting a monthly community chat to discuss these changes/enhancements/etc.

This is your chance to sound off on any complaints, ideas for improvements, irritations; and at the very least, you’ll have a chance to chat with your forum buddies on a more personal level.

I assure you that all voices will be considered and passed on to the Envato directors for review. The first chat will begin tomorrow, September 23rd at 5:00 (US Central Time). Please refer here to determine the correct time in your city.

At 5:00 PM (US Central Time), join the chat!
