I remember when Magento was brought on board and there was an uproar about it. The emotions will soon die down and everyone will get back to doing what they love to do, and that’s build great quality themes that will sell like hotcakes!

No emotions here. Isn’t US the country where respect for freedom and equality are basis of national culture and policy? :)

Skim reading through 5 pages of posts, is it true that woothemes are getting elite author commission rate as a non-exclusive theme seller?

Their commission rate is not public. However, Envato admitted that their rate is not standard 33% as for others non-exclusive authors. Read the full Collis’ post on first page of this thread ;)

So, basically, you are saying that everyone is equal but some are more equal then the others.

I live in Ukraine. Ukraine is considered as country with one of the most corrupted governments. Ironically, there is even a phrase “equals are not equal” on the back of highest-value banknote (500 grivnas) of our national currency.

I was topic starter of this thread: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/reject-due-to-usage-of-timthumb/86464?page=1

Well, after winning streak of WooThemes ThemeForest feels very much like home.

Cheers!

If I have an agreement with Envato to sell a theme only on ThemeForest and I sell it elsewhere at the same time, then I am violating the terms I agreed to.

But that’s the point that I CAN sell YOUR GPL THEMES elsewhere without violating anything :trollface: ... as well as you mine :)

no! from all ThemeForest.

How to make some money on web:

  1. Ban authors from participating in WordCamp for being not GPL
  2. Force them GPL
  3. Sell all their themes in bundle for $0.99.
  4. ????
  5. PROFIT!!!!

can I purchase a theme under this 100% GPL and sell it on my own on my website?
Yes!

Sorry for saying it, but that is not premium-grade template. All basic design principals are ignored. Demo content looks untidy/ignorantly (sorry again). You will not earn anything here by adding couple of images and “mrromeo on Sample blog post 2 mrromeo on Sample blog post 2 mrromeo on Sample blog post 2 mrromeo on Sample blog post 2” to bootstrap. Sorry :(
Yes I agree with you. My demo site needs some work. But did you check my other pages as well? Portfolio? Shortcodes?

No. And that’s the worst part: I didn’t wanted to.

Let me tell you how I got here. 2 years ago trees were taller, grass greener and quality standards were much higher then now. (Yes, now quality standards are low). At that moment I was running a local web design studio for almost 6 years (first as 1-person studio; then with 3 employees).

My (our) first template was rejected with the same reason as yours. Second, third, fourth… as well. In fact I do not remember how many times my items were rejected. And every reject made me and our designer to push ourselves harder. And in some moment we got accepted to PSD category. At that time it was hardest category to get into.

The only advice I can give is “You will not earn anything here until you make a decent product. Product first.”. Make your conclusions.ยง
