Last time I checked, this is a free market. Not only is it warranted to compare and contrast the competition, i’d say it’s fundamental in developing an informed choice.
I’m not a Christian, but there’s a passage in the ‘good book’ that says, and I paraphrase, ‘we compare ourselves amongst ourselves’.
A sensible discussion on the matter would be beneficial to all.
But going back to my original point, I started the discussion because I noticed a tendency from users here to speak somewhat negatively of Woo. I have no vested interest in either camp, I was really just curious as to the source of that disdain.
Dude, don’t start an argument – so please BE NICE ! Not to be harsh but you’re new to the forums, that’s Is the number one rule here!please close this tread, before it gets to…...Why? I think my original topic before DD hijacked the show was perfectly legit.
Jeez, take it easy dude, what’s with you guys? This isn’t the Truman Show you know…get over it already.

I’ll be nice, you be transcendent.
Whatever floats your boat dude…
For me… I’m here to earn cash not to be featured lol
That’s tantamount to the same thing…which I believe is the point in contention.
I think that what Dany needs to realise is that this is not a democracy. This is a business and everyone who contributes here is contributing to the Envato brand. Anyone with a negative view point on the workings of this business is detrimental to the brand and thus expendable.
The problem is, that most users of TF sit behind screens in countries that are democratic and that support free speech and the right to protest. They assume that the same values that apply to their physical environments are applicable to virtual ones. Clearly, the terms and conditions of this site beg to differ.
You charge 10k for a template?? Holy cow, is that even legal?
I started another topic on theme pricing a little earlier and I mentioned the name ‘WooThemes’ in passing just as a simple point of reference to illustrate the discussion.
I noticed quite a bit of hostility towards Woo and I was wondering why that is. Have I missed a debate somewhere along the line?
Do people here generally hold WooThemes in disregard? I’ve bought a couple of themes from both marketplaces and have had a better customer experience with Woo but had to pay more.
I like TF for the fact that there are far more themes on offer and the pricing is much more affordable.
But I do think that Woo offers an overall better package if you’re going to be a long-term user.
What’s your take on the WP premium theme marketplaces?
There are other besides Woo and TF of course, eleganthemes.com and press 75 for example. Why do you shop at TF?
Totally agree, It should be more! @Kiss_Collective You can’t compare a theme like these with WooThemes – give me a break!
Well the thing you’re buying into with Woo is the support and longevity of updates. On TF there’s nothing that says a theme seller has to update his/her themes as WP makes updates to the core. There’s also no guarantee on TF that you’ll get support.
For those reasons alone, Woo is the superior platform.
As for design aspects, I agree that there are themes here on TF that perform and look as good and often better than Woo themes.
