Got an SSD and Dropbox, so I think I’m pretty much okay :)

i wouldn’t use an SSD for long term storage. also a online service is nice – but best is always to also actually have it at home or office.

If you run a business ( like me ) having your data safe is the first priority. Besides all the work done in all those years, there’s also things like administration, bills, invoices etc. you can’t lose them ( also have printed versions ofcourse ).

I work from a RAID system that always instantly saves everything to 2 harddrives. So if one breaks – i always have the second one with the latest data. Besides that i run backups to 2 other drives every day – that i swap each week. The backupdrive not in use should be in a safe or off-site ( in case a fire or something breaks out ).

So, i’m pretty sure i’m safe – unless….. a meteor hits my town or something :O

I’ve had a similar case like that, only not with photos but people claiming to be the ‘webdesigner’ handling the site and they need the theme or something.

Just don’t reply ( allthough i couldn’t resist to tell him where he could put his ‘webdesign’ skills :P )

I’m unlocking the thread for awhile in case there are any questions. Thanks everyone!

With all due respect, but sometimes threads are locked way too soon which is extremely annoying and mostly when it’s about a sensitive subject.


We have taken a more honest and brutal approach to our portfolio of themes, without any connection to the recent requirements.

We will only keep themes that we are actively supporting and updating, and at the same time themes that generate enough sales to justify this. Once a theme goes down in sales for a sufficient time we simply call it a day and remove it. I think this is only fair to the buyers community and to ourselves. We should not fill up the marketplace with items that are abandoned and no longer maintained (at the pace things evolve these days, if you don’t update your theme for half a year or so, we can definitely conclude that it’s abandoned).

This is not to start a quarrel with the authors here. Everybody wants to do good business. These are just my 2 cents on this matter.

+1 – Agree with this

It’s such a nice badge to have. With it’s color, curves, delicate lines. It just makes you all fuzzy inside :)

it actually doesn’t have any curves… it’s round ;)

So I think that ThemeForest should introduce for theme authors obligatory updates for their themes at least for 3 years, otherwise buyers are cheated and fooled.

This could happen – make themes at least 1500 dollar – and you STILL have a VERY – VERY – VERY good deal.

Please, for the love of normal clear thinking people: close this thread.

ps: Don’t get me wrong – i, like most decent authors – give normal support

I one time got the request to put instruction videos through a site like youtube instead of including them with the package.

But then again have those videos embedded in the documentation.
