Even regarding the price, I think including a base theme with elements that would fit for multiple niches is okay. However, people are starting to BUNDLE DIFFERENT themes under one, which is not okay and shouldn’t be permitted at all. Themes that can be used to create multiple layouts, like Avada, should be allowed, under a different price, however, bundles of completely different skins shouldn’t be allowed for sale.
Of course, the review didn’t know it was 95% similar to another theme(or RIPoff) when they approved it. When there was proof, they disabled it, seems ok to me. Even after the screenshot above was added, you still feel you’re the one being right? That’s actually funny.
As far as I know, bundles are not allowed, however, apart from the usual multipurpose themes which are just themes that have elements to fit good for almost any niche, I’m seeing lately DIFFERENT THEMES released as a single item. This is the definition of bundles!
Where are we heading to? Who releases more themes for $58? How can you compete with 50 themes for $58? And, I am reffering to this [link removed] . I didn’t include the link to the theme’s tf page or the author name, so it shouldn’t be removed.
I want an opinion from other authors, I think this is getting too far. If things go like this, releasing themes somewhere else or even on our own websites look even more reasonable rather than competing with these bundlers.
If they can’t have a single theme with decent sales, they include 50, perhaps perhaps they’ll earn a buck.
First, check the already approved templates in your niche and study them, as yours is just in a total different league, you have basic mistakes in pretty much every single thing you have on that “template”(I wouldn’t call it a template as it’s too simple and everything is wrong, sorry).
I’d recommend you to study some e-books or take a course in web design, as right now everything’s just wrong, inconsistent and bad looking.

No, that’s wrong, accepting all generic themes just with the idea that one of them may sell is simply wrong, it will just make the market even more crowded, while it’s already overcrowded.
This would be a VERY VERY BAD idea, authors from low-paid countries will start selling themes for $10 and will ruin the whole marketplace
Thank you for answering us – this is why i love Envato. Friendly community, focused not only on corporate interests, but on some things too, that support this company from inside. I mean, i was impressed you have time to answer us.
+ + + for the announced modifications, however, for your reply, this is very, very funny, I’d call it anything else but community focused. They will still focus on what they want, no matter what it takes, profits will always be the main priority and they made it very clear to us.
The only time when they’ll take us into consideration is the time when their profits are affected. Like in the mandatory support, if lots of authors would search for other solutions, they’d surely not like it. It’s actually kind-of late now to try and win the sympathy of the authors, as the trust in envato as a business respecting their partners is close to 0, for me and for many many other authors.
Some people may say “Wowww, envato is so community focused, they care about us, bla bla”, when you’ll live off Envato and it will be your main source of income and you’ll see that your opinion doesn’t matter at all, when you’re the partner with the 70% of the “business”, you WON’T think the same.
