@go-themes – have a look at the license information at http://themeforest.net/licenses/standard?license=regular – You need an extended license if you are charging someone to use the website / service, as long as you are using the theme on the frontend of the service you need the license. It doesn’t matter if the backend was pre-built or custom built for the service.

no they can’t resell the item.

An example of the extended license is:

I have a client with a site which their customers pay to join, he would need an extended license to use a theme as he is charging to use the theme.

If the theme is being used on one site and it’s not a “commercial fee paying site” then they get a regular license, if they are charging for using the site (e.g. spotify) then they would need an extended license

So because they have multiple accounts they can’t get featured on more than one account? The featured items are done per item and not by author, it’s just good work that has them featured under all their accounts… you’re reading far too much into it

all WP sites newer than 3.9 and with auto updates turned on were updated last night (4.2.2, 4.1.3, 4.0.5 and 3.9.7 I believe)

The item I was talking about, the one that got hard rejected once and soft rejected 3 times was second in sales in april’s new items in HTML and believe me the changes I made were minor. This template didn’t deserved to be hard rejected in the first place… maybe a soft one…just my frustrated opinion :)

That’s your opinion though. the reviewers see tens of items per week so know the standards an item has to meet better than most people, and they are only trying to help you, the better the item the better the sales could be.

Hard rejects are a pain in the butt but work on the item and they will get accepted, soft rejects basically mean you are really close but they have found some minor things you should look at.

they delete comments when they break the site rules, this can be anything from swearing, racial / sexual messages to just pure spam, very unlikely legit messages are removed

hard reject is almost because of the design, and in your case it probably is as there are a lot of design issues including:

- footer is awful, look like a quick job and no thought gone into it

- the general typography needs tidying up, increase line height and font weights

I am not a designer so can’t give more specific help but those things stood out to me on first look

you should be able to create an automatic system with the api where you can submit your own filters e.g. one page, parallax etc

to do as a recommendation service would have to be paid due to the time and expertise needed, how many people would be willing to pay $10-$40 for a theme which only costs $60, the corporates will be spending thousands on themes so Envato can afford to do it but for one theme purchase it’s just not viable.

I offer this service for my clients but includes installation and setup of the theme

You should be able to pay someone to convert it to be mobile friendly, it depends how good the code is and what content you have but it might be cost effective enough to get it done.

your best bet is to look on envato studio as there will be services on there to do this.
