Submit it to PSD if you want to see if it’s ready or not

http://prntscr.com/82mq8v -> this looks horrible, especially the input field http://prntscr.com/82mqip -> the read more button looks poor there, it’s alone and has no connection whatsoever with the rest of the block content.

and there are other minor things that look poor, like here http://prntscr.com/82mr6k they’re too close to the bottom

And remove the lorem ipsums, try to put some real content, it makes the whole design look like it could actually be used for an actual business / website.

Mine too, even though it was very on-topic. Anyway, you can search for “Aruna”

Hmm, I wouldn’t call this a template, it’s a disaster, sorry.

I don’t see how you could see this one approved here, just take a look at ANY template approved here and yours and make a comparison.

Just….no…. if you ever think of releasing something here, partner with a designer. One thing is not to be a designer and a completely another thing is to not even recognize a decent design or evaluating one. I’m not a designer either but can feel in a second if something’s looking good or not.

Some facts that you should probably consider

  1. It’s 1 year and half old now
  2. The chances of it getting approved aren’t that high, I’d rate them quite low actually. So you’re asking someone to pretty much gamble, which isn’t the definition of an experienced developer with quality work, nobody like that will gamble with your template.
  3. 50-50 isn’t suitable for PSD vs WP partnership. Almost no developer with experience will ever accept that. If you find someone and he’s experienced and very good coder, you may consider yourself being very lucky or he has too much money already :D

The first refferal username counts, it doesn’t matter if the author adds its own ref in his URL, it won’t override yours.

Just as I thought, no reply at all for the whole duration of this. :) Not that I would’ve expected anything else….

Maybe this is a new feature of Envato elite program? I’m also curious about this..

I’d hope not. Decreasing the value of our items IS NOT THE WAY TO GO. What next? Avada 50% discount? Like they’re not already poorly priced.

And of course we’ll probably get a reply from the staff AFTER the promotion ends, when there’s nothing that can be changed. Let’s hope not, but if this happens, we’d better get used to these “promotions” globally

It might be a new promotion feature. In that case it’s a welcome step and Envato should use their subscriber list more often, but to promote deserving items, not individual authors.

what? 50% discount is a welcome step? What’s next? Buy one, get 5?

edit: can anyone send me the author name privately? I’m curious

I’m on a decline too. While it may be true that I haven’t released themes as I used to do in the past, I’m observing the sales of the other items as well, ThemeForest is pretty much turning into templatemonster :) If the traffic is the same, then the amount of items is way too high. They showed no interest in doing anything what would benefit the authors that are working here full-time and I can only assume that sooner or later most of us will go somewhere else, if anything better pops up. And it will. It always does.

Everybody is tired of these huge, monster multipurpose themes having the same price as normal themes and that’s pretty much killing the marketplaces, but Envato couldn’t care less, as long as they get their share.

I’d say they could clean up the marketplaces a little bit too, old items that either look bad or are not maintained / supported in any way and don’t bring value to the end user can be removed.
