Great idea!

Sadly it takes Envato around 7 days to respond to most things at the moment, so I fear a more immediate solution is just to leave a comment on the item :)

I agree with the sentiment of this 100%, some of these themes are just getting silly. With my own portfolio I do what I can to keep my themes simple, and focused, but I also need to make a living for me and my partners so I’ve also tried a few bigger themes.

The issue is that buyers vote with their wallets, whilst the top sellers list is dominated by 1000s of feature themes, then how can we truly expect developers to not want a piece of that action?

Either Themeforest need to do something about the huge 50 demo themes, or buyers need to move toward us developers of smaller, more focused themes, both of which is blue sky thinking I fear.

Here’s an example, there’s a new theme with 40+ demos on the homepage, this is in the item comments:

Wow, lots of nice built-in demos. You could be a contender for BeTheme if you keep adding demos!

Hey Jordan,

Can someone please review my application to be an express service provider? When this was first announced for themes installation a while ago I applied immediately (so I can install my own themes for buyers) but I’m still to hear back about this.

Cheers – Tom

My template is unique and the design also good.

This attitude will not get you approved. Sadly your design is neither unique nor good, I’d suggest going back to some design basics as there’s fundamental errors in your design that simply cannot be explained in a forum post.

Look up:

Typography

Rhythm

White Space

Hmm, I’ve never had an issue with CMB or CMB2 if I’m honest, I’ll let you know if I find anything though as I now need to triple check my themes :)

I use a Photoshop action to pixelate the images. That way the template looks better than having only gray images. \\

I’ve been blurring my images, but this looks tonnes better, thanks for the idea, mind if I copy it? :D

Here’s an email that i got from a user today:
Hello. I really like your theme. I found a major spelling error in your site. Would you be open to trading my finding for a free copy of your theme?
Whaaat?! :D

Well to be fair you did spell Concept wrong :D hehe

No, i mean i have no personal site to upload my preview there. But i uploaded preview (compiled by Muse HTML/CSS files) to themeforest in preview.zip

That’s not how themeforest works, you need a personal site to host your demo on and then link to it in the item when uploading.
