^ You can’t disable Avada.. Avada IS ThemeForest, might as well just shut down the whole home page :D

:)

Just to clarify, I mention Avada because it’s the biggest seller here, I’m implying it’s sales figures alone mean that it would never be soft-disabled the same way other themes are.

I just wanted to re-iterate that this is not a slight on Avada or ThemeFusion, but entirely based on the rolling sales of that theme.

@enabled, great post, but as revaxarts said I cannot agree with the items being disable section.

There’s been reports of items being disabled recently because of small CSS issues in mobiles etc. Disabling harms sales, reputation and buyers, when in reality a 72 hour notice would do perfectly for what a soft-disable currently achieves.

I said this before, but I’ll say it now, if Avada is not disabled for some of the bugs we all know exist in it over the years, then no other theme should be disabled for the same things. I say this only in support of a notice period of fixes needed, not a slight on Avada or the reviewers at all.

Big sellers like Avada simply would not get the same soft-disable, because we know this would destroy it’s sales, and the Envato team know this too, but in my opinion, every theme should be treated this way also.

Send Envato a DMCA for this, it’s a pretty blatant rip-off of your design.

The rule of thumb Envato should follow is, “would we disable Avada for this?” because seriously, if the answer is “no”, then no other theme should be disabled.

A soft-disable because of a styling issue is simply unacceptable, communicate first, disable after.

Unzip the file you’re trying to install, read the documentation :)

Extended, neither are $2000 though, more like $140.

Note that you should contact the rev slider team to confirm an extended license is fine to include with your theme first, the VC team confirm this on your page and you’ll need to apply for their “in stock license” with your extended license purchase code.

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 :)
