hello my friend,

sometimes life is just so complicated… but there is one point, partnership is all about trust. so, you need to put your trust first before your assumption…

now, let’s thinking positive. his mom sicks, he have to stay in hospital for his mom, then he doesn’t have time to touch his laptop. you can try to contact him, but don’t ask when he is online. use different approach, you can send him an SMS, give a sympathy to him, ask him how is the latest condition of his mom, etc. if he is honest with you, he should respond that kind of question…

i think that is the first step that you need to do. then, you can always say to him, you need to focus on your mom now, i take over this theme for now when you are not available, feel free to contact me again when your mom is healthy and we can continue working together again… ;)

My trust is way to big. I never hesitate to give him WordPress File that i already finished. so he can work on it. after 1 Month long, he never give me any single file that he currently working on. I don’t know how trust this man. i try to sms, he only replying one time. i try to make a phone call, he never take it.

btw if you have partner, and on of your family sick. will you give your partner a news ? or you just stay quite, not giving any news?

and if you stay quite, what your partner will think about you? wishing your partner know that your mother sick without telling him what actually happen?

its just too weird.

hi fellow author,

from 5 month back i creating a Wordpress Themes with my pass customer. His role is designer, and i’m as usual a programmer. i do HTML, CSS, JS, also integration with CSS, also think about animation (this themes using many animation), documentation. i can say that i put soo much effort on this think.

so his job is doing PSD. also i ask him to do finishing styling (he good in it). i don’t mind to share 50, 50 result of sales (even my work is alot more than him). money is not the think that i want to focus, but i have more interest to find someone that i can enjoy working with.

he promise me to finish all of styling from the base i give to him on 1 August (i already finish backend code, html, css) almost everything. also documentation. BUT he don’t give me anything yet, until NOW!

From last week, he not showing up. we usually chat on Skype, but he not replying what i write. i also put comment on his facebook. he also not replying. i trying to send him message from email (i use all email that i know he use), no reply also. he already fail to his promise that will finish everything on 1 AUGUST.

several days ago, i try to contact my friend who in the same country with him. he call him and able to reach him, he tell that his mother sick, and will be online soon.

after that, he still not getting online, my message is not replying. yesterday, i try to call him, but he reject it, he just said he is on hospital. i send him SMS, he also not replying. i call him again about 10 times, but he not answering.

im really confuse, i don’t know he is lying or he telling the truth. and i don’t know what i should do now.

as a good partner, i will ALWAYS giving update of my current status. , especially if i cannot do work. (i don’t really think sickness is problem he cannot replying my contact or giving me a news) Now i cannot do anything else, everything in my mind is to finish the themes. i become very unproductive, all in mind is finishing my hard work for 5 month back.

If you in my position, what will you do? leaving him and work my own? or waiting him to go online? also if i release the themes my self, are he able to take down my themes?

Ask authors? Nice joke This whole standard requirements thing is ruining creativity and you’ll need to create the same generic bullsh*t that fits well in all the themes.

I’m so much on you. this requirement will force us as author to build BLOG themes with no creativity, or other feature that can be exposed. its just nightmare.

hi vervethemes, i’m new here and fell the same way as you before. but that how this marketplace work. some good themes get low sale, and some get many sale. your themes is good, but in my opinion its too specified for little market. uniqueness is important, but when you go to this market, you will need to know and understand what people need. i believe you will develop into new star on this marketplace. keep light your fire.

Just to confirm – all our themes are designed by me (Jonathan) and coded by my wife (Barb) – just incase anyone was wondering :)

But this is funny stuffs – seen and heard of it before also. Interviewed many people in my last job and looked at their portfolios FULL of stock stuff – idiots.
