I’ve had a customer who have purchased an HTML item and expected it to work as a Wordpress theme, since it did not work he gave it 1 star rating with a rude comment, from what I understand he then contacted Envato and they refunded his money, however his rating is still there…I wish Envato can take care of rating system one day. Those 1 star reviews because of somebody purchased an HTML wanting Worpdress and vice versa are annoying

Hi there authors, I am having hard time understanding new bias rules on ThemeForest for newly submitted themes, my theme was rejected because I had a field to input your google analytics code , the reviewer said that it should belong to a plugin.

I do agree with that completely, but if you are applying these rules – you have to apply them to everybody, top selling themes here have these features bundled in along with crap load of other things that potential WP beginner customers would like to see in their theme, so it gives them an unfair advantage when the theme is being picked by users, they see their theme has all this buzz and that will give them an unfair advantage…

I think if you are applying some rules you should apply them on everybody.

That’s bad news, have you had any success with adwords? It’s impossible to understand if it works or not without spending a big buck.

I am running a small test campaign on adwords at the moment and wondering if anybody knows if there is a way to track conversions when I send traffic to ThemeForest using Adwords?

I do usually receive weird emails from people interesting in my themes, but this one is the weirdest so far :) :

“Hello Sir,

I wanted to inform you that I’m using a older version of your Theme, although I didn’t bought it, but found and downloaded it “illegaly”. I do know that you put in a lot of effort in it, since it does look amazing even in this Version, but I currently can’t afford it, if you believe it or not I have 100 Euro a Month.

Why am I writing this to you, you might ask? Well I appreciate the work you’ve made and if I do have the 58 Doller earned thru my Site I’m building up and run that this Template is on, I will buy it because of the nice work and better features in newer Version.

I hope you understand my “needs” and let me use it until then. If not I understand it also, don’t mind tell it I will change it right away to a worse Template.

The Website it is currently running on is * where I do advertsing for weird, funny or useless Items on Amazon.

Regards by all respect,

Julian”

Just wondering if any other authors have received some funny emails from their customers/people?
