You maintain the rights over all the files you sell here. If you’re an Exclusive author, you can’t give the items away for free to everyone, but you can use them for your own clients.

Please see – http://themeforest.net/licenses/faq#pay-to-use-own-items-a

Do I need to pay to use my own items within the regular or extended terms?

No. You can use your own items for free in your freelance work for clients. If you’re exclusive, remember you can’t distribute your own items elsewhere.

Example: You could use your own web template for your client’s website.

Thanks, I miss-read this useful tip!

Hi

Maybe someone has already asked this question, I just wanna make sure that authors can use their own themes to create a website and provide some services online to clients without select 100% GPL? (Don’t allow the clients to download the theme, just using it online.)

For example, I’m planning to submit an application theme to Themeforest, and meanwhile, I also want to create a online web service for some clients for free or need a payment like basecamp(SAAS), The user are not allowed to download any resource, they can only use the service online.

Hope your suggestions.

Thanks!

Thanks in advanced!!! :)

Reviewers are doing a fine job, and fast. However, it sucks to go back to the bottom of the queue when your item is soft-rejected.

You need to wait for 10x new submissions, 10x hard rejects and other soft rejects even if you are soft rejected for a 5 min easy fix. Every soft reject means 1 or 2 days to be reviewed again.

I think it would be logical to keep soft rejects on the top of the list since they will be accepted anyway.

What do you think?

100% agree..

I don’t mind waiting at all… It is just a little frustrating that it takes so long when the soft-rejection is for a 5 minute fix. I thought soft-rejected items had a higher place in the queue… seems like they don’t.

With that said, I’m always very grateful for the reviewers job. We’ve had two themes reviewed by Ivor and so far he has been great!

In my impression, reviewer Ivor is always very fast, my first and second theme was aprroved by him. :)

The review queue is becoming more and more dynamic as they try out new things with it. Which is a major reason why the progress bar just wont cut it any more :)

I see, thanks KingDog. I will be patience and I believe I have 90% chance to get approved.

We are in a similar situation.. We uploaded 4 days ago as well and got our item reviewed. We were asked to make a very small change (the wordpress admin bar was overlapping with our menu xD), and it’s been 24 hours since we re-submitted with the fix. Such a small issue! 24 hours! And the bar has fluctuated between 10%-20% since then (15% right now). Anything going on? :(

It’s been 24X3 hours since I fixed a couple of small issues… Although I’m nervous, I must tell me keeping pleasant, no other way :D:D

Hi John,

Hard to say, febr 24th we submitted our new item, was reviewed and soft rejected on the 28th for a weird reason, lost a week (it was the same way submitted as all our other items which got accepted immediately). Resubmitted a few hrs later… Surprise… Soft rejected on march 1st by another reviewer for another (new) reason, wohoo! 3rd of march resubmitted again, 4th of march accepted.

Sometimes reviews are a little slow, however one item got accepted once within one hour :) just be patient and never give up resubmitting files, sometimes its hard but eventually its worth all the effort and improves your skills :)

Good luck with your theme!

Steve

Thanks,Steve. Is it usually one item per reviewer until it will get approval? All my soft-reject reasons are very small coding issues, there’ no design issue, generally I’m always feel that if the design is no problem, the item won’t be rejected :D

My new wp theme has already soft-rejected 3 times and I improved all coding issues the reviewer mentioned, submitted in the Sunday, but now I still waiting for the result.

First time to waiting for so long, I feel a little anxious, especially because the reviewing process bar is always go forward and then go backward around 50% length, again and again. I don’t know what’ happened?

In cases like this, what’s the result usually? :(
