1) No. You can’t take other people’s work, modify it and submit as your own.
2) You can do whatever you want with your work, even release it for free, if it’s not approved on ThemeForest
You can start by posting a URL to your work so we can see it
No, it’s not allowed here
Thanks for the advice, I didn’t get such e-mails so far Guess I’m lucky xD.
Yes, it will be rejected, make a page template for the homepage while leaving the default homepage show the latest blog posts. (index.php)
Try sending a tweet to @envato_support with your ticket number
It’s a habit they have from the normal stores, they usually offer support only via phone and rarely via e-mail so they would think that this is how it works here as well.
Who would’ve expected this? Not even the biggest Real Madrid fans
Thank you for all your replies, I really appreciate it. I didn’t really mean to say that Envato is covering up threads, that’s only what it looks like, from a neutral perspective.
The main purpose for this discussion and my end goal was to find out more on soft-rejected items and maybe ask for a little bit more transparency in this process and mostly in topics where staff assistance is needed. Often we need to say something more but we can’t, because the topic gets locked. And the topic gets lost.
I have seen some great ideas here but mostly I would really support the idea of maybe switching a little bit the process of soft-disabling the item. I understand that the law force you to stop selling a product that’s not 100% as advertised or presented but in the case of an old item, it’s been the same for months, disabling a whole theme for a small theme bug (I don’t know, some missing padding or some widget that’s broken perhaps) is a little bit too much. You have sold the theme for months with those “bugs” so an extra 24-48 hours won’t do any damage. I’m sure if you let the user that reported the problem that you’ve notified the author and they have 48 hours to submit a fix… they wouldn’t complain. And everyone would be happy.
Once you get a popular item disabled for even 1 day, it will never get back there. It’s ruined and you can never get back those sales or the place in the popular list. Why get to that point when there are other ways of fixing it?
@Enabled If a blatant copy is found on the marketplaces, yes, I agree with the instant disabling. However, I’m mostly reffering to the soft-disabling of items, items that have been sold for months without anyone saying anything.
I’m really grateful to the support team, but in this matter it’s a matter of minutes, once you submit an update you can’t just wait 24 hours for the item to get back online. Sometimes it’s crucial to get the item back as soon as possible and you’d need 2 persons to help you with this matter: 1) a support team member(by using twitter I got pretty fast replies, but without it, it goes quite slow) and 2) a reviewer. It takes hours, if lucky, to get both of them on your case and put back online. It’s too much. There are solutions posted here that could make the process easier.
Hehe, yes, that comparison is too much. It’s totally acceptable to not offer support during weekends, but it’s not a bad thing for the authors that do offer it, if you’re logging in anyway. In the end, you will still have to reply those tickets
