No problem Ana – just wanted to make sure people knew
I JUST received this from google glass -
@twsjonathan You’re invited to join our #glassexplorers program. Woohoo! Make sure to follow us – we’ll DM in the coming weeks.
I double checked and the account is the verified google glass account… that’s pretty awesome I think… right?
+1.Nobody mentioned how much they contribute to the community, Flexslider for example, i am sure someone of you is using it, i am and i am very grateful for that. Don’t be so harsh
I don’t really want to get involved in the discussion, but I am actively keeping up to date with all the questions and answers – the above statement however is incorrect -
12 months ago WooThemes bought the rights of the open source flex slider from it’s creator – they did not create it.
They added to it to create V2.0
So it was basically a business deal using money to buy an open source project.

I will say I have no issues with Woo being here at all – I think it just goes to show that a marketplace like ThemeForest pushes the boundaries of what can be done with WordPress a lot faster than a closed single market place such as the larger theme shops.
@jonathan01 it’s the old “do as we say, not as we do” tactic. HAHA! Rules are meant to be broken when dollar signs are involved $$$$$$$
I love this line the most “To help us launch this new feature, one of the most well known and respected theme outfits is joining ThemeForest’s ever growing library — WooThemes!”What? You gotta bring some other theme provider into the mix when there are plenty of current authors who would be more than willing to help launch this new feature.
Yeah the whole thing is just a little insulting to every author here that has helped build it to what it is today…. ah well.
@Kiss_Collective I believe that is why we are still asking and waiting for a reply to the whole GPL / exclusive agreement we are in – I don’t see how Envato can enforce the exclusive agreement anymore. However this is a sensitive issue as earning percentages are based on this and people earn their living based on the percentage they have worked very hard to reach.
EDIT: I have yet again clicked “Request staff reply” – several times myself now and others have stated so.
Never ever ever set any folder on your server to 777
That Sir is a great question and one that legally needs answering by Envato.
Also, sending via just an email client just doesn’t make sense as you get zero reporting. Use a service as it costs so little and the tools and feedback you’ll get is worth every penny, plus they have good working agreements with all the major servers across the globe to ensure best delivery etc.
