I haven’t done a cu3er myself but I do not see the issue here – when all said and done if you don’t want that type of thing…. don’t buy it.

Templates are here as a starting block for companies / individuals / freelancers – you shouldn’t really ever just buy a theme and use as is – hundreds of other people could have the same thing – where is the individuality in that – use it to change the colors, change layout and swap out the stock header for something you want – it’s not difficult really as acceptance at TF stipulates clean code, well commented and documentation.

At TF there are thousands of excellent designs without this type of header – the choice is stunning and shouldn’t stop anyone from buying themes.

As someone said also, if something sells, others will copy / follow – nothing wrong with that, it’s business. Apple brings out the iPhone and look now, every phone has a touch screen and an app store – same with iPod / mp3 players – and those tv’s all the same with their LCD screens and rectangular shape – sorry I just don’t understand the argument here.

Happy Birthday man – hope you have a wonderful day!

And +1 for the 70% birthday present – then everyone (authors included) can buy just one of your files and you would earn a fortune – I think it’s an awesome idea!

Didn’t we have an identical thread to this last month? Use search forums before posting a duplicate thread me thinks!

http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/share-your-deskworkspace/17526?page=1

Was started 2 month ago running all the way thru to last month there were comments – 11 pages of it… :)

why not just take screens shots of your areas in google maps – then use this as a base to simply draw your own – just basically trace the roads etc from the google images – use your own colors / style etc.

Would seem like the obvious thing to do to me.

I was under the impression that the author does NOT get a cut of that increase – can someone please confirm.

But on the other side of this – why oh why do we now look like all prices got increased site wide!? I mean display the lowest price large PLEASE – what a user interface boo-boo.

Please fix so that the CORRECT prices are shown – after all Envato, as previously stated wants to further encourage deposits – this will not do that.

I do encourage the buy it now inclusion though – for sure!

You can’t of tested mine because my colored background works fine – I’m looking at it in Gmail right now and they are fully tested in gmail prior to launch.

You can’t put styling in the head of an email template either – most email apps strip it out of there – that is why you place it in the body.

Hope that helps!
