@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.

absolutely!

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.

But 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 -

http://www.amazon.com/Life-narrated-David-Attenborough-Blu-ray/dp/B002UXRGM0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1277334030&sr=8-1

also blue ray player for under $100:

Nah, my TV is still the very old flat TV. Not even a LCD :D I will get a BR TV first, then PS3 and BR player :)

Dude no need to buy a BR player if you get a PS3 :) – already built in and works great.
