We’re looking for some smart, friendly individuals who have experience with Tuts+ to help moderate the Tuts+ Premium forums. We want Tuts+ Premium’s forums to be a friendly, interesting place where people of all skill levels can interact and learn from each other. Are you someone who can help us?
We’re looking for clear communicators with a solid grasp on written English.

Moderators are well respected within the community and this is an excellent opportunity to become more involved with Tuts+ Premium.
Successful applicants will be notified before the end of November, 2011.
Remember, this is a volunteer role. Existing marketplace community moderators are welcome to apply. Successful applicants will have access to moderate all Tuts+ Premium forums.
Please fill out the application form and good luck!

Jeffrey Way has been spreading the good news about ThemeForest. In an incredibly detailed post called The Business of WordPress Theme Design he speaks in detail about how to make a living designing WordPress themes.
One key focus of his article is the Envato marketplaces, which he calls the "Amazon of digital goods."
And quote statistics he does. Mind-blowing statistics like how much authors can make in a single month. Jeffrey teases: “I don't know about you, but that's well more than I make! Maybe I need to quit my day job.” It’s gratifying to work for a company that enables authors to do so well.
Jeffrey goes on to convince theme-makers into embracing the “less is more” philosophy. Instead of selling your themes to big businesses for big bucks, sell them on ThemeForest for $20 or so. That type of thinking sounds counter-intuitive, and prompted the following response from one designer:
Have you ever had a similar thought? Understanding you might need some convincing, Jeffrey goes on to spend a few thousand more words proving his point, and then explains how authors can maximize their success on the marketplaces.
Have you taken the step of becoming an author on one or more of Envato’s marketplaces? Are you already on a marketplace but would like to be more successful? Then do yourself a favor. Read and absorb Jeffrey’s brilliant post. You won’t regret it!
