It’s worth noting that Koncept is already the name of a theme on here.

Lol, you’ve actually copied and pasted sections from Pivot, you’re likely to find yourself on the wrong end of DMCA if you were to actually get a design like this accepted. Find inspiration but not too much inspiration.

I have far too much to be thankful for this year, but I’ll do my best to thank everyone I can :)

2014 has been an unbelievable year for me, my business, and my family. We’ve welcomed 2 new babies to the family this year, there’s been engagements, and a wedding coming up in early December, so thanks so much to my lovely, support family, and sorry I’m not around so much since I’m so busy working. This is something I’d like to balance out more in 2015.

I also got engaged this year to my soon-to-be-wife Lauren, who has looked after me, and kicked my arse into gear for the last 10 years (I’m 26), I could never say thanks enough to her for putting up with me when I’m in a bad mood, or bringing me cups of tea when I’m on a 20 hour work binge.

We also bought our first house this year, and for this I’m massively thankful to the Reviewers, Staff and management of Envato. Despite what’s going on in the forums (VAT) I know I could not have done even half this well without Envato, this year I’ve gone from being an Elite author to being well on my way to Power Elite, in fact my $750k hoodie came in today!

I really do owe every aspect of my current professional life to this place so to Envato, everyone who falls under that umbrella, Dan & Christian, thanks :)

Finally this year marked the first time I’d ever opened my business up to another, I’m extremely protective of the business I’ve built here, and the customers who stick by me theme by theme. I was really worried about bringing someone on board, but after talking it out I was really happy to bring another team member on board, and as the year has gone by I’ve come to realise that I’d be pretty stuck without this guy now. You know who you are, and you’re the best! :)

To everyone just starting out here, 2 years ago I released my first (commercial) WordPress theme here, at the time I was a sign maker doing a 50 mile per day commute, I got my first break by doing theme support for a big author here and it got me going into this place like you cannot believe. There is a full income to be made, you can run your entire business here (if you’d like) and you’ll meet some of the best people imaginable. Just keep working hard at that first item approval and you’ll be hooked!

Thanks everyone, and thanks Lauren :)

Bungee Jump, Sky Dive, Mt. Everest Base Camp, Surfing in Australia, Machu Picchu, Zero G Experience, Snowboarding, Surfing In America, then I’d cap it off with a few nights in Vegas.

Don’t know how that would all tie together, but if Envato wants to deliver on it early then I promise I’ll make it to the $25million :chuckle:

Hey UOU,

I’d like to offer 2 things I noticed from your comments:

1. You’re mentioning not having any sales in there, not a great idea.

2. Someone asked about a theme feature and you mentioned you’d add it if the theme got any decent sales, perhaps this feature being missing is holding back a few sales?

Either way, I’m surprised it’s got 0 sales, I hope it starts picking some up :)

Tom

Oh this is NCDesigner? This all makes so much sense now :)

@LoveIdea – seriously, you might want to come up with some original branding that isn’t just an obvious rip of LoveThemes (lovely) branding.

I’m actually very unhappy that Envato seem to be continually disappointing users with their response times, but I’d like to say 2 things:

1. Ripoff report is not “credible” in fact for the most it’s basically just what 1 star reviews on amazon are for, showing the “bad apples” in the buying community.

2. That wikipedia entry was modified yesterday, linking to ripoff report as a reference, it doesn’t take a detective to figure out who added that section ;)

Though I appreciate you feel let down, I must echo Jonathans sentiment, why not just buy from authors you trust? Most of us on here do everything we can to produce the best products possible and give the best support, there’s definitely some bad apples in terms of authors also, but you can usually tell these by just reading through the comments for a theme.
