Sorry for my english ^^

BTW it wasn’t about your grammar or something like it (I myself am a non-native English speaker and I know how hard it is to learn a new language) it was just about the words you use, your sentences structure and so on. It’s just funny, not necessarily wrong that’s it :)

Yep, definitely didn’t have trouble understanding you OP, sorry if my message seemed that way.

-1, since most responsive themes also come with option to disable this feature.
Yes, agreed. Also responsiveness does not affect page loading speed. You can create a responsive grid with no more than 200 lines of CSS code (and 200 is probably more than what’s needed to).
Retina ready themes will load slower on retina devices, but this thread is only about responsiveness.

Agreed. There is nil performance hit when it is done right. The only con is the extra time required to build/design out to different breakpoints.

I would love to see googles version of this because theirs would be more realistic that most sites.

Haha, I was reading through your post thinking “Google should totally do one, it’d be really accurate” then saw that line.

So, you basically want to do what I just said?
or not.
I’m pretty sure people simply don’t read the words that I write sometimes. Either that or they want to disagree for the sake of disagreeing, even when they agree with me.
I’ll admit it. I like disagreeing with you, just for the sake of it. :)

I disagree! :D

The scrolling is driving me up a wall, and I don’t recommend changing the scrollbar from default.

Hm. This is a tough one. Your theme certainly isn’t bad, although there are some areas that could use some love, like enhancing the slider a bit (right now you seem to be relying heavily on the art work to make it look good, not the functionality of the slider itself) and adjusting some margins/padding perhaps. I don’t know why it was hard rejected and not soft, though.

I suppose it comes down to the reviewer, though. Unfortunately, there are inconsistencies with how they rate themes. Unless I’m missing something, like perhaps strong similarities to a popular theme.

Right now users are free to create “joint accounts” when collaborating on a theme together. This poses some risks to all those involved – one could change the password, take all of the money, write bad things in the forum and get banned, etc…

Having an official partnership feature could eliminate all of that risk, and surely be a boon for authors everywhere. Has the idea been tossed around, or even better – worked on at all?

I have no problem designing and creating an HTML/CSS website, but when it comes to WP and WP’s entire ecosystem of integral plugins and this and that, I feel like I’d be in over my head, but I want to be able to trust that my work will be in good hands without worrying about somebody stealing my thunder, should I choose to publish here with a partner.

Very obvious similarities to the theme “Scopic” – Hell, you didn’t even bother changing the footer text. It is no surprise to me it was hard rejected. I can see some different elements here that aren’t present there, so you didn’t copy it completely at least.

if you go with visual composer. Keep in mind that you need to buy an extended license for every single theme you use it on that gets uploaded to themeforest.

I’ll keep that in mind, thanks!

Just a question I found intriguing, and I can’t seem to find the answer on my own. My first guess would be they want to limit it to the higher price-point of WP themes, but personally I’d think the lost sales from people that only need an HTML version would be insignificant.
