Hey guys, staff and support have been notified and are currently looking into the issue.
@enfusionthemes, the issue is not ownership. As we understand the rules, the issue is that an item that is deleted from the marketplace can never be re-submitted. Re-submissions imply doubling the exposure time on the front page. More than this being a one-time unfairness, I think authors are concerned that this sets a precedent that authors can delete items and then re-upload through another account to bypass the one-time-upload restriction.
Keep in mind that this does not prevent you from uploading an HTML template or WordPress theme based on this design that you now own the rights to; but the same item that used to be for sale (the PSD), is not eligible to be sold here once it is deleted. (Again, this is our personal understanding of the rules as marketplace authors; staff may have further clarification)
Hope that helps explain the issue for you.Let’s wait till staff gets a chance to investigate
NP, For me it does not matter too much. People are acting like child and I am very good and cool dealing with this sort of stuff as I have been in this market long enough to act like a grown ups.
Anyway, The first thing I did when I read this forum post was “Mark it for Staff Reply” myself.
I think the rule is that the same Author can not Upload/Re-Upload their own item again once its deleted from there account. The base of this rule is that The “Same” Author should not get 2x exposure and sales. In this case, The Author is different, I am a different guy than the one who sold and pocketed the first sales and I have nothing to do with it.
And yes of course, The theme is going to End up as HTML/WordPress so I do not worry about this issue too much. Lets be frank, The most this is item is going to stay on the homepage is a couple of days at most, At the PSD Template Category, How many sales can it get? A few and thats why all this crying is about?.
Anyways, let the support decide.

@All Thank you all for your time.
1- First and foremost, Envato is not owned by me. The same reviewers who review your items review my items too.
2- Its very amazing to see see this great community of Authors who are always appreciated for their kindness and “being good” to have such a narrow view points about a good item.
3- The irony is this, The item has not been sold even once since its new upload and there are talks of “un-fair” sales.
@FinalDestiny Thank you for bringing this to the Attention of the forum. I am sorry to see you are afraid. Please dont be, You should have shared the URL to my item which got approved, Its completely fine. We all should have the right to express our views.
@sevenspark Basically, Its not something done hidden here. When we bought the PSD rights and We uploaded the file for the first time, We mentioned in the notes section for the reviewer that we have bought the theme from this first Author through contract, so nothing is done here as a “Get Away”
@dekciw Nice to see you again Tom, I reported your comment and it was removed by the comment reviewer because the comment was “Spam”. So I do not have to proof it, you just proofed your own problem. And here is the Email You got from me in the morning.
Here is the process.
1- Envato does not belong to my dad.
2- The Theme was very newly uploaded by previous author like a 15 days ago or something.
3- I paid a lawyer to get a contract written.
4- The contract was signed by previous author and sent over to the “Envato Support” for record of rights transfer.
5- Thats the Story and please do not take it personal, I think everyone should mind their own business. Envato Reviewers are paid to what they do. I have 178 rejected items in just a few months and I have not made a single “WHY THE HELL MY ITEM WAS NOT APPROVED” comment on any fellow Envato Author.
The URL is not working.
The error you are talking about is not because of the theme. Its a server issue. If you want, send me the login info via the message form on my profile and i will fix this for you.
Complete Agree with you, it really sucks, I had my items rejected because they were not “unique” and I saw items made by 2 year kids approved the same day.
Its a custom theme
Comments are Disappeared????? -No, its my mistake. So There was a comment from Carmen just yesterday. She said there will be a Post coming regarding this whole situation. I am just wondering how many days we have to wait for that post, and what going to tell us, (i mean worthwhile) after 5 months.
Yeah, I hope its not something like “We are closing the tuts+ Markatplace” a few days ago.
