Can’t remember seeing a theme like such – but the idea is great though.
But – maybe you can find a normal blog and put it inside the title?
A lot of blog themes have big sized titles and the date is inside a small info text – so if you create a blog post title like: “Day 10 – Week 2: another thing” maybe you have sort of what you need..
So i guess we can conlude that most of us find all the animations an overkill – and some even the (mis)use of big sliders in general.
@parallelus has a good point. The cool factor attracts buyers, but a lot of ‘cool factors’ are there just to dazzle without considering if it’s beneficial for the content.
As for sliders in general – i think they still could make a site “lipsticked” sexy like Net-Labs mentioned. Problem with most sliders is that they’re mainly just a big block sitting on top of the site. Maybe when a slider is more integrated and related to surrounding content it does a bit more than only visual appearance.
Guess it’s up to us to make things better ey
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
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 )
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 ios7 + microsoft trend with light font. It will be popular. we’re all know it.
+1iOS 7 is practically metro with lighter fonts :))
+1 – i love apple, but this looks like i’m watching a childrens tv program or something
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.
