Hi Glenn,

I recommend learning a bit about visual hierarchy and vertical rhythm, spacing both micro and macro and this will improve your template. Also, try to bring something unique to the marketplace, as this template is the plain-old battle-tested layout. Bring something fresh and reap the benefits.

There’s no offense inteded Smartik, as I respect your work. I would just rather worry about other things than the “ever-so-often special arrangements Envato” makes with some authors.

It’s not the first time you and I saw a theme “revived” back to the front page. ;)

Actually, ignitiondeck are actually big enough to have a special agreement with Envato. Envato can do anything they want on their marketplace, at their sole discretion. The rest of us, have just to stick to the rules.

Instead of whining on the forums about how others are doing better or something like that, start producing valuable stuff. You should be better off with that on the long run.

I’m mostly interested in the !important rule. Sometimes, you just have to use it :)

Finally a good day after this drought. This month was horrible. The statistics on Marketopia prove there’s a bump of sales today: http://tf.marketopia.net/statistics/marketplace

Too simple (simple as in it looks like a standard free WordPress theme) and lacks typography finesse. Learn more about vertical rhythm, hierarchy and so on.

Hey there,

Welcome back!

Well, to keep things short, currently there’s an over-flood of multi-purpose themes and one-page as well.

Keep doing quality stuff as you previously did, stellar support to accompany it and you should be more than ok :)

Paul

Thanks for the tips!

Congrats on your new elite status! ( coulda been a while back though :/ )

Hehe thank you! :) It’s never late you know :D Need to change my forum signature though haha!

Generally, there’s some saturation and unique items sometime sell, sometimes they plummet. It’s all a matter of luck or of high anticipation skills, knowing what the customer truly wants.

Anyway, the nowadays TF shopper wants to customize every single bit of the file. There are far less people looking for the “simple, just works” themes.
