MobileParrot ! or PhotoSpiders !
Actually a mobile app/related market sounds pretty plausible.Humm, guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
What’s left to sell? Stock images? A kidney or 2?
I’m pretty satisfied with Collis’s replies so far and with the idea of tossing aside the 100% money back guarantee policy for the moment.
Giving Collis’s replies here http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/refund-deductions/30322?page=18#284993 , the refund policy now sounds reasonable.
Here is my top five priority list.
1. World class customer support (Reply within or less than 24 hours)
2. Very thorough & sophisticated theme options
3. Type of theme i.e magazine, business, video, reviews + rating, ecommerce, buddypress…
4. The whole shebang.. shortcodes, column layouts, buttons, unlimited homepage + page layouts, auto thumbnails etc..
5. Most importantly style factor!!! If you look back to the very 1st wordpress theme submitted to Themeforest and compare it to now.. no more bold 19th century colors. Unlimited color schemes, option to support custom menu’s, background and header. My favourite is unlimited sidebars!!!! And I mean sidebars for each and individual post/page controlled from the editor’s page.
I currently use “mysnippets” by Justin Tadlock, but it’s not very efficient. It wont support unlimited sidebars if you use a 3 column layout. If only someone could create this… I guarantee it will be downloaded 10,000+ times!Let everyone know your thoughts…
Thanks for posting this, I’m actually going to bookmark it, very useful for us authors.
Some examples: an email address provided by your ISP , their email accounts from work and so on.
People, WTF ? Mattew and everyone else, just stop replying, let her vent and the thread will either die off or be locked, there’s just no point in something else.
How is this?
Seems relatively similar in layout.
I think the rejection email should, at least in some cases, be worded differently. Instead of the does not meet the high quality standards maybe write the real truth, such as based on our experiences so far, we don’t think your item would sell well.
I think such a phrasing would prevent a lot of the ‘hurt feelings’ posts and would make authors realize that this is not a design gallery of exposing one’s artistic flair, but a site where item marketability takes priority.
We all know that there is a certain design layout proven to work and most of the themes accepted lately are in that format, however, it may just be the summer, or the market really is saturated.
‘Increasing quality standards’ is so subjective, I just hope it will be applied impartially. I don’t want to be mean, but there are at least 2 themes right now on the homepage which quite honestly are subpar to put it gently.
Which can be a good thing I guess, because one gets to make comparisons such as “this item is so much better than the other, i’m buying it right now”, but what if one of the rejected designs would’ve actually sold better instead of the 1-2 subpar ones accepted?
There’s luck/chance involved as well….
How did you upload the theme? Using the wordpress uploader inside wp-admin? If you have, you should know it’s pretty unreliable, especially with large archives.
Upload the theme via a FTP client, FileZilla for instance.
You probably want to look for a customer feedback plugin for Wordpress or one that would allow you to build custom forms and a theme with homepage sidebars that can take widgets/ page contents.
