I can forgive someone who has not used WordPress for asking me for help with a WordPress related issue but what I really can’t stand is when a WordPress rookie, in their infinite wisdom, sends me an email or posts on the item discussion flat out proclaiming my theme doesn’t work despite the 380+ other happy customers and the live preview suggesting otherwise.

The point of Lorem Ipsum is that it has no meaning so viewers are not distracted from the design trying to read the content.

The concept is great but as a premium website template the design is pretty poor.

So if I take my Escalade to “West Coast Customs” and have them pimp it out, they aren’t allowed to show it off as work they’ve done simply because someone else made it? I code PSD designs and re-design things others have done all the time, does it mean I shouldn’t show it off? nope. Does it mean I should give credit where credit is due? yep.
West Coast Customs don’t claim to be a vehicle manufacturer or vehicle designers. They clearly state they customise vehicles.

I agree with you. Even worse than this is when a Web Designer’s portfolio IS a customised theme (unless it’s there own theme of course). Unfortunately I have seen this happen as well.

  • Get used to rejection. It’s not personal.
  • When you think your theme is ready to be submitted to the marketplace, go back and make it better.
  • Test, test and test some more. It will save you time and effort later on.

That’s really cool. There was a similar thing a few years ago by Burger King involving a guy in a chicken costume.

I’m slowly evolving my own simple framework to use but it’s not very consistent between themes at the moment.

You did nothing wrong. Occasionally you’re going to get a buyer who expects the Earth (along with your undivided attention and expertise) for the $35 they paid for a theme.

Are Reviewers paid or volunteers?
