+1, i believe many buyers have found their ‘do it all’ monster theme and now happily use it over and over regardless of the licence terms.

UPDATE: This really happens, if somebody doesn’t believe it, ask yourself: why people would buy a regular license to use a theme that include tons of themes?

This is why the “monster” themes will kill the market, not only themeforest, is about global themes market in long term.

Didn’t Don McLean write lyrics about this?

“I can’t remember if I cried, When I saw my earnings run nearly dry, But something touched me deep inside, The day the creativity died”.

My thoughts in a song ;)

Any news from staff?

We’ve had some feedback from Ivor and Kailoon (appreciate it guys), who mentioned it is something that is getting looked into. Here’s hoping!!

If you are giving away anything nice, could we have a link? :kiss::kiss:

Just a ‘Ghost’ theme – Writr, that I no longer sell on TF, nothing special :)

Not calling out the theme, but damn, some of those designs look familiar :(

Things like this will be the death of themeforest in the long run, this needs to stop

Thou speaketh the truth!!

and also…

Buyer: “Shall I purchase this theme which is X price, or do I go for the one that is ONLY $10.00s more, and gives me 300 different homepage variations? Erm, that’s a tricky one?”.

Sorry back on the cost thing again ;)

Hi,

This is possibly an uber-dumb question, but are we allowed to give away products that we no longer sell on TF?

thanks

...but I also need to make a living for me and my partners so I’ve also tried a few bigger themes.

And I have followed the same route too (on occasion). You have to, to put food on the table, and to compete in a market (the TF one) that has changed drastically in the past 12/18 months or so.

The knock on effect that makes me upset, is the effect this is having on theme designers. The design quality/originality in recent times has fallen. The cookie is truly cut on many, many occasions. But for a lone designer/dev do you want to try your hand on a more regular basis, niche designs, minimal designs? Not if you’ve got to earn a living :( So they resort to the same old, same old, and creativity is stifled there, and then. Easier to take the safe option this time around hey?
