There’s possibility to move back removed theme. I had similar problem with DMCA – someone’s copied my theme here, then I sent DMCA. After Envato removed that template we talked with that author and and came to terms with him (he made magnificent changes to the template). Then I sent support ticket about that, DMCA was cancelled and template was again available.
But it was about 2 years ago, so I’m not sure how things looks now.
Imho. Envato doesn’t remove ratings at all.
This is rating that I’ve received a week ago:
Extra comments from the buyer:
Always disappointed by these websites that appear as Wordpress customisable and then you discover you just bought a HTML version, so not Wordpress compatible, Not transparent!!!
and here’s response from Envato regarding to my ticket about that rating:
Although you might not always agree with it, honest and unhindered buyer feedback is valuable and a great way to get insights into over all improvement.
The ratings comments are private and for your eyes only and we hope you will consider all reviews and ratings with an open mind and that it will contribute to the future success of your business as an author.
I’m not even sure if that customer reffered to me or Envato.
You can calculate earrings by downloading CSV file from ThemeForest.
Hi allITPassionates said
Envato please help!
We hear you, and accept that there are currently some flaws in the ratings / review system. It’s something we’re actively looking into, although it’s a big project and one we need to get right.
We’ll reach your ticket within a few days. In the meantime, I don’t think we need a new forum thread each time an Author receives a < 3 star ratingChristian
I’ve 11 one star ratings and usually I don’t care about them but this one is just silly.
If support could help in any way, here’s ticket ID – 71294. Thanks.
Sometimes people get facts wrong and buy HTML instead of WordPress release however they don’t rate templates because of their mistake, but this is a daisy:

There’s simple solution – themes without several dozen demos should be cheaper.
