@Parallelus you know – that is such an intelligent, well written response and one I completely agree with – thanks for taking the time to be so constructive.
This seems to be a routing issue with your IP – I would suggest trying to ping the site or use a visual trace route to see where your connection is failing.
Site is fine for me from Ohio USA .
well we can work out the commissions they earn every month from our products that are sold and that comes to some big money – all we are saying is it appears you are now attempting to earn a further $97 commission from the sale of one of our items (exclusive to yourself as we cannot do the same thing)- which in fairness is your prerogative – so I guess the conclusion is what I believe DD Studios said at the beginning – it’s their site and can do what they want – if you don’t agree or like it then move on…. shame.
I have no problem with up-selling or referral links like this in theory. My issue is that if someone buys my theme and decides to host it using the ThemeForest referral link, I should get a commission. It was MY sale that led to that referral. Currently the authors get squat. That is bad business.
Well earned mixey – congrats and enjoy your admission in to a rather exclusive club! I’m hoping to get there soon1
what is stopping us putting an ad in the item description? Is that against the rules if we recommend a service for say hosting our product someone is looking to buy? If so I would love a stab at earning $97 per signup on hosting!
I believe this was supposed to help buyers with services that are relevant to – in this example – something that could be printed – which I have no issue with at all – but is this appearing when people buy a template for instance? If so then yeah, it’s just an ad.
EDIT : just noticed that there is hosting next to templates in my download – print next to printable items etc – not a bad thing I think – it is kinda a service and is more than relevant – however I would prefer a drop down of a selection of services so it appears less like a forced ad.
Mac or PC would help narrow things down I think
@CreativeStable – you reasoning is correct and the way I would fully recommend.
10 years of web development experience has ALWAYS told me if you “get it” then visitors don’t – never presume a visitor will get ANYTHING – create a site like this:
Design for designers Program for coders Usability for a child
Print people should NEVER get involved in web design – they are 2 completely different mediums – they just don’t get it at all.
Nah, my TV is still the very old flat TV. Not even a LCD I will get a BR TV first, then PS3 and BR playerBut I don’t have a BR TV / player Unless if iMac support BR, lol
Dude seriously buy a blue ray player (if your tv is hi-def) – it’s worth every penny of the vastly plummeting price points you can grab one at – they are sub-$100 is some places now – take a look at amazon – and btw – I heard you can also get in the USA the ORIGINAL series from the BBC with David Attenborough as well as the crap version shown on tv with Oprah – take my advise – buy the one narrated by David Attenborough – you will not be disappointed.
I just looked it up and it was correct what I heard – the original BBC version available in the US -
also blue ray player for under $100:
Dude no need to buy a BR player if you get a PS3 – already built in and works great.
