Any news about it?
Are you serious? There are WordPress themes available here from December 2008! What about them? On the other side, they are quite unique now in terms of design.
3D version is pretty impressive, I must learn more about 3D WebGL, but I agree with Smartik, your design is far from being accepted here.
announcement: I’ll buy Avada, X or Enfold
Harmful? It’s harmful that TF doesn’t have anything like this, but it’s just a competition.
I’ve seen it couple times when I log into customers’ dashboard for support, so even if they have this ‘feature’ they still use themes from ThemeForest But kudos for HoHo, it’s great marketing move, too bad ThemeForest didn’t use that idea. One of the top authors here also use/used similar thing, each theme added another page to dashboard that listed other themes from this author.
did you get documentation with the theme? Most themes just after installation won’t look even close to what you see on demo page, you need to setup widgets, options, sidebars, page contents, sliders etc. Most (if not all) themes have documentation that covers this process step by step.
For now wpengine, but I have to find some time to try digitalocean
