Regarding this topic i would like to point out someting that i saw just now browsing through the new aprovals. In the footer of the wp theme MaS there is a height difference between the input text-area and the submit button of about 1-2 px. It`s not much but it pops in your eye(thanks to that yellow bg). Unless discrepancies are the new “thing” now, some themes are not reviewed in dept. This is not the first theme that i saw with height differences but i had to point this out. Maybe the author is watching and would like to fix that before marketing his theme as super pro tips and other eye catching “standards”.
Anything involving creativity or terms that are unique and can create a spark, don’t come for free. You should of known that by now since you own 148 domains.
Why not get a new domain name that stands out from the rest of the webdesign/development sites that are out already? Metrothemes makes me think of windows 8 and probably i would aspect to see in your site windows 8 themes. Ohhthemes is weird. Themeloper is just another 2.0 name that doesnt stand out from the rest. Acidthemes is a bold name for a website/portfolio/company. If you go with this name you’ll need a hell of a marketing plan to make it pop and get noticed. Take Envato’s example. The mother name is original and in the web/dev community is known as being a marketplace even if it doesnt have an exact match name. The sub sites are 2.0 names that had a marketing plan and time to get noticed. But … maybe i`m just wrong.
The trends will be the same as always. Make “cool” websites with the latest tools that are responsive for Iphones and Ipads. Oh… and what the public wants. Trends kill creativity as you can see here in TF.
In some cases, updating means less performance. Maybe in this idea some ppl do not update their browsers. The point is that IE has damaged the brain cells of developers and that wont be forgiven soon.
Infuse … anyone can represent your interests, even Envato. But for that they have to open up a law firm, hire an attorney who specialises on copyright infrigment and so on. That wont be cheap and the fees for protecting your work wont be small. Take that into consideration.
dnp_theme … you can’t grant a verbal permission to someone to take legal actions for you. These things are done following strict rulles that envolve higher institutions than Envato.
kim is as guilty as any other user who shares copyrighted material without agreement.
You can not take legal actions against someone (person or company) for files or any other material that is not yours. Envato only sells the work that you create with your agreement. They facilitate the deals but they do not own the files. When it comes to legal actions to take down files form sharing sites, you have to do it becouse you are the owner, not the Envato team. I suggest you keep an eye on a daily basis on the sharing sites and see when your work is being pirated and send a notice to the sharing websites.
