If I ever had a chance, I would inject some viruses to all of the download packages (I hope they already contain some kind of malicious injection).
What kind of an idiout trust those sites and download from them?
And What about Google? Should one must be genius to see that this is a “warez” site? Why don’t they remove it from their index?
By the way, Please remove the link from the post, you’re doing more harm than good.
Thanks for reminding Bedros
While looking at the DMCA page of a large pirate site to submit a takedown notice for our products, we came across a page which is the site’s official account against piracy and DMCA notices:
Recently some of owners product’s since published on this web site , reporting this site and post’s to web server !
The manager of this web site have bad news for them!
if we recived any DMCA report from anyone products , we puting that post for TOPUP and the advertise part till every one coming to our site, download your product FOR FREE and your selling of product WILL be 0 (zero !)
Remember this , GoldTheme server is on warez server and my data center don’t care for any report , so dont report of any our post’s , You’re the only person loses is you ( reporter).
we will remove your product from this site , if your product selling for Charity company’s.
This site is one of the biggest and most current pirate theme collections with a high ranking in Google. Can anyone preferably one of the Envato copyright team experts advise on what should we do. I need to know:
- How can we deal with pirate sites that are hosted on irresponsible web hosts (such as this Warez server)?
- Any chance Envato as a company take more responsibility regarding the items exclusively available in its marketplaces and put extra legal force to combat this generation of pirate sites? I’m sure the individual DMCA notices from us authors will never lead to anywhere fighting with such zerg swarms!
Thanks in advance for a helpful response.
We need a developer to help us with our theme supports in our forums. Our requirements are as follow :
- Advanced knowledge of WordPress & plugins
- Fluent English and communication skills.
- Have a positive attitude and friendly manner to our customers.
- Dedicate 6-8 hours a day (excluding weekends and 1 day off a month)
- Reliable, dedicated and good time-management skills.
Seems not much important for Envato staff to respond to our concerns. this is quite disappointing…
I agree with you guys,
This is something lately happening and seems envato lost the control of item approval. Seems there is no a strict pattern in item approval. having an item in recent item and its exposure is something that defines its fate for future sales. Envato must have known about this.
OMG, Finally this day arrived. we should celebrate this day guys…
I highly support this thread and I think one more feature could be adding staff reply that lets privileged users to reply to comments(such as support staff). This can help some authors to focus more on updates and bug fixings rather than giving support for hours. Cheers
Thats what most of authors wished to have. well its pain in the ass for some top sellers to answer to all comments. instead of focusing on updates we should always spend almost 2-3 hours a day to comments section.
I hope this will be added to Envato marketplaces very soon.

All shortcodes should be banned from themes. If you want to include them, provide them as a separate plugin. Useless customization options should not be available too, example: “+1000 fonts to select from”. What I hate on themeforest themes is all the useless crap that authors include on it.
I totally I agree with you regarding some features that just bring loads and makes themes super sized. Unfortunately this become a culture in themeforest and if you want to compete you should include them. for example in our coming theme I did all my best to remove those things like many fontfaces, just very few remain that fits to design. I did all my best to keep theme below 6mb. there are some themes over 15mb and most of the hosts upload limit is below 10mb. so imagine the load of support and unhappy customers.
Regarding to the shortcodes, making them plugin without any proper guide will not solve the madness rather will bring many hassles. I think there should also be a guideline on how to downgrade if the user switches the theme.
