Encouraging month UNTIL 2 days ago when it feel like my templates have gone into Bermuda Triangle and nobody finds them. 0 sales in 48 hours.. Zip, nada. Sometimes it really feels like someone has fun flipping a “Don’t buy this guy’s items.” sign on my templates. :)) Hope it will make a come back in the last week.

Yes, if indeed SITE 1 will not be using it anymore, you can start using it on SITE 2. Both regular and extended licenses specify that ONLY ONE use is allowed, it’s not tied to the domain name.

1 Licence = 1 website (no matter the domain name)

You will need to buy an Extended License and contact the plugin’s author and ask for permission to include their plugin in your commercial TF themes. Both steps are mandatory.

I would suggest you first contact the author, reach an agreement and only after purchase the license.

Cheers to everyone, each and every person on the list does an amazing – and surely stressful enough lately – job on the forums. Big thumbs up especially for Paul (Enabled) who’s been amazingly supportive along the way when I needed some help! Cheers man!

In Romania, “Un An Nou fericit!”, which translates as “A happy New Year” or simply “La multi ani”, which has no exact equivalent, but would translate as “To many more years!”

So, “La multi ani” to you all, Envato authors, buyers, team and your dear ones!

avoid paying a tax they should be paying (i.e. VAT on goods they buy)

I really hope this doesn’t come across as rude but, a tax “they should be paying”? Really? Rather they’re coerced to pay. VAT is one of the most senseless, idiotic and discriminating tax in history. As a business you have the option of balancing VAT. You charge people, you get VAT. You’re charged yourself, you pay VAT. But as a consumer you ONLY paying VAT. You have no option of balancing it out and you always pay it out of you budget, cause you know… salaries don’t come with added VAT.

So maybe saying “they should be paying” is kinda harsh. The fact that something exists under the letter of the law doesn’t automatically make it right and just. Just saying…

Sorry for the interruption.

I don’t think so. EU isn’t a Country, so why don’t You use your Country Flag instead of EU?

Neither is UK a country, yet I don’t see the flags of Scotland, England, Northern Ireland or Wales, which ARE actually countries.

UK is a state, which just as the EU, is nothing more than a political, not physical/geographical, form or organisation. A union of countries with a certain degree of autonomy.

So yes, if you keep the UK flag why not the EU? I, for example, believe in the EU principles and love to identify myself as both EU and Romanian. I do find this move disappointing and discriminating too, as it should be my choice which flag I want to display as primary.

Someone mentioned a simple theme that is meant as a framework would not pass Envato review. Would be great to hear a staff answer on that.

That is indeed a problem, I believe. While some authors (like Orman Clark) might pass the review process with their minimalist approach, which is a very good approach indeed, others might now without adding “SWAG” to their themes. It’s probably also a matter of reputation and for a guy like Orman, reputation of clean good coded items adds to the sales value while for an up-comer, there’s nothing to speak in favor of the sale other than the demo itself. And a minimalist, framework-like demo won’t really stand a chance. Reviewers realize that the sales potential is drastically reduced and at least soft-reject it with requirements of adding at least a bit of the basic functionality everyone looks for.

5. Forbid multipurpose themes.

You know, multipurpose doesn’t really mean bloat. In terms of design, multipurpose means exactly just that. A theme with a flexible yet un-niched design. I see nothing wrong with generic themes. Having tons of built-in bloat, that’s something else. This issue is with coding standards actually, not the multipurpose scope of design.
