I would say, you just need some fantasy and imagination… see what fits to the theme, there’s no perfect name

Oh! by the way, in the case of “SpaceShip” as name, it also will depend if there´s something already named that way or not. If you are the first with that kind of name, a single name like that could be great too.

You can put any name you want, but take in mind people are from diferent countries and not everybody speak same lang. And also, maybe for people with same lang, could “sound” to other thing. Let´s say in australia could mean something and in usa other different.

Be creative, but don´t put names than only you understand!

For example let´s say you made a design for “Space ships builders” (it´s a stupid example but just as an example) So, your theme could be named in a very obviusly and non creative way as “SpaceShip”, or you can be a lilttle creative a and name it as “The Outer Space Theme”.

:)

Other thing is to concatenate name with the theme´s main feature. Let´s say “portfolio” or “business”, so potential buyers could now if a theme is made for what they are looking for without need to preview each single one. Yes i know there are categories for that, but name also helps.

Using jquery you can easily get the parameters from the url path and put them into rel attribute on the fly. I think is the best and also you will have a valid html.

But the rel attribute is not for that, i guess you can´t pass a variable separated by ; into that.

Why you don´t put that info on parameters on the url path? Like so:

?autoplay=1&fs=0&width=500&height=200

Then via jquery you can manipulate that parameters to make what you need.

This way you can still use the XFN to put the rel=shadowbox only.

I suggest to start using whawoo! and not more unique!! :)

So, rules must be that themes must be “whawoo!” or be rejected, what you think? jajaja

Unique and Original vs. For the Masses In my point of view, it´s quite imposible both live in same place at same time.

In my opinion, this isn’t true. It is possible for unique/original and “for the masses” to live in the same place at the same time. That being said, I don’t think it’s an easy task to accomplish, which is why so many attempts don’t make it.

For example, we see a tremendous number of horizontal menus, usually the same or similar style/layout within the header. Vertical menus are much more unique here because they’re done so much less often, yet they’re still built for the masses and provide a different “eye flow” to the design; which in turn gives some of the designs something extra unique.

Another example would be footers, which people tend to follow trends with rather than trying something a little more “outside the box” that doesn’t generally affect the overall “for the masses” aspect too much, yet can add a tremendous amount of uniqueness.

I could keep going through the elements of designs that allow both unique/original and “for the masses” to live in harmony but I’d end up writing tutorials that I don’t have the time for yet. :(

Yeah i know, may be i wasn´t totaly clear, but this discusion could be forever!! you know…

Well, what i said, to be “Unique” by definition, is something that is completly new. There´s nothing same as that unique piece. And in my opinion, there´s no such a unique web design, since you have limitations that makes them all to have same basics that you can´t avoid.

That´s why i ended saying that may be we are using the word unique in a bad way and that creates some confusion with new authors. You can´t have “more or less uniqueness”, is not something cuantificable (i don´t know if that´s ok in english) Got what i said?

:)

ah by the way, note i said “quite imposible”, not “completely impsible” right?

I did something similar some months ago:

http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/buyers-what-you-likewantneed-to-be-designeddeveloped-/23231

If you’re wanting to create something out of the box or really original (and is “good” obviously), I don’t think the risk is that’ll get rejected, the risk is that it won’t sell. If you want to do something really original, go ahead and spice up your portfolio.

I was just to write my point of view, but…. in those words are what i´m thinking.

Unique and Original vs. For the Masses

In my point of view, it´s quite imposible both live in same place at same time.

I belive that in some level, authors don’t want to make “oh so unique and original things” just because will be a waste of time.

But in the other side (the review system), not to be unique is a very good chance to be rejected…

May be we are using the words Unique and Original not in the right direction/meaning.
