Hey, guys! Hope you’re all doing well. ...Wow – lots of drama!
My understanding is that what’s for sale here is a bit unique compared to what’s offered on their site. For example, I can sell a jQuery plugin here…but then also sell, say, a Joomla version of the same plugin on my own site without breaking exclusivity.
Nonetheless, I’ll have another look.Ultimately – this is good for everyone. We should all be excited to see how it performs!
I am doing great, thank you!
I have few questions and after your answers I will make my final decision regarding my participation here.
So, from your definition Exclusivity means: “Agreeing to keep your portfolio of items for sale exclusive to the Envato Marketplaces entitles you to a higher percentage of each sale – from 50% to 70%. You can still sell other items elsewhere (on other marketplaces, your own site) however any items you place on an Envato Marketplace must be exclusively sold there.“
1.Do you think the product they sale here is marketed as a different label compared to the one they sell on their site?
2.Do you think it has significantly big differences from the one they sell on their web site to be called different item? (different coding, different technology, different options, and etc. or only the licensing is different)
3.Do you really believe in that “Ultimately – this is good for everyone” if 100% of the developers here simply CAN NOT develop/market/support similar thing on similar scale, so they can sell it and benefit from your new test with SlideDeck (it took Digital Telepathy years to come to this shape of the slider and many corporate clients who were paying them to develop that kind of product – API and so on.)?
Persons like DS made this place. They were in the beginning.
DC, Bobocel, wangruyi, jurgenv, sike, Richardson and I think these people need to have a special Honor badge… the people who made this marketplaces possible. Cos all other marketplaces came after Flash Den and were following the same model.
DC was and is inspiration for many other Flash devs and at some point he was among these few people who were creating the standards in the flash design/development area.
No one can take this away from him!
Thank you DC!
Sorry to hear about your issues for sure, just a thought – have you contacted the author in question with the issues and given them a chance to replicate your issues etc and see if they can fix – not saying you are wrong at all just saying that to help someone improve they need structured feedback etc to understand where their possible issues may be so they can attempt to fix – let’s face it, nothing is perfect and with themes and hosting, server setups, incorrectly formatted code, different users and the freely available plugins it’s hard to make sure everything works seamlessly with so many moving targets.
I understand! Just this was too much!
I’ll give you an example. When you write HTML and you have paragraph what tag do you use? I use < p >. These guys do not use tags for the paragraphs at all. Seriously!
HTML is not object oriented, but how do you address the code formating with CSS if you can’t hook up the styles to an object? Well you make a big mess and done. Looks good but…
I am still working on this theme (for a client) and I am really pissed, so I think the best is just to stop reading this thread.
while I agree with some of your points I disagree with your “plugin compatibility” sorry to say but most free plugins arent coded properly while themes should work with some of the more popular plugins(all in one seo, wp total cache, contact form 7 etc) its impossible to get some of the more advanced themes to work 100% with all plugins nor is it realistic to have authors test there themes will a lot of plugins you could spend weeks doing so, and in the end how many end users “use” the plugin
well I am not mentioning ALL plugins. WP has e very well written dev guide for plugins and themes. If the theme is properly built, than any properly built plugin should work without a problem. And I have seen crazy tweaked Themes still supporting valid written plugins.
The point is that the authors want to speed up the release time-frame and omit or sacrifice important stuff. Again, not all of the authors and not in each and every theme.
For me TOP means top in every way, not just in the look (the look is the hook for the clients but the code is the marriage material).
This is my first complaint about an author on all Envato marketplaces. I am totally disappointed from particular TF author. I purchased a theme from them with huge hesitation because previously I purchased another theme from the same author and the first work wasn’t good either.
Their work is AWFUL , VERY VERY AWFUL (I purchased many templates from 3 different Envato accounts so I know what AWFUL is and what is not). Their themes are falling apart as far as you start modifying them. I am not talking about some huge modifications – only content tweaking.
I spent 10 hours just to install that theme. As soon as I install a plug-in and the whole theme is gone (500 error). Plug-ins which usually work on other themes here they simply can’t. I asked them to help me and they did a good job installing the theme for me. But come on, if I have to put 2 lines of copy/text and I have to send them a message through their contact form I’ll simply give up. It is too much.
And this is a top Author. It is shameful to have this garbage work on Themeforest and to be promoted as TOP . It is simply not true.
In another theme the authors removed completely the Footer section of their theme (bang – http://codex.wordpress.org/Stepping_Into_Templates ). Third theme had modifications of the jQuery core plug-in (bang) for compatibility purposes.
I really would appreciate if both TF reviewers and authors lift up the bar in one direction CODING : USABILITY, INTEGRITY , WELL CODED AND documented themes. Please pay special attention on plugins compatibility. Most of the themes are very weak in this point.
This is just an effort to help you all.
congrats dude! And make some time for yourself.
I’ll just type: H
I think your H is VERY overpriced. when I was buying VW Jetta I wanted some new cheap car and the H was on the list. But when comparing the options and features the H didn’t even get close to Jetta. The price of H also was much higher. Seriously. I am talking about the USA . Here the Jetta models are different than in Europe.
Buy brand new Volkswagen Jetta! Without a doubt this is the best quality for the money Today! In the range $20-$23K you can buy WV with features and options of $40K car. Don’t waste money on brand. Buy Jetta 2011!
You’ll save on maintanance too cos it is new – 3 years peace of mind!
I own 2010 Jetta and speechless. Never thought they are sooo good. My prev car was VW GTI but could say the Jetta is wayyy much better. German quality. comfortable drive. sport mode. many many things in this car. Go for Jetta 2011!
