Our questions regarding why woothemes themes can be accepted still have no answer.

We just submit our wordpress theme and rejected…. but why woothemes themes can be accepted??

Can envato staff answer our questions?


2) Our wordpress themes was rejected with standard feedback from reviewer: “Your template does not provide a unique enough design with the necessary design quality, features and options to compete in the marketplace at this time. As higher quality templates become available in the marketplace, approval requirements will increase to maintain appropriate marketplace quality.

But when we see the woothemes themes, why those themes can be accepted?

Their themes is not bad, the design is good but still it “does not provide a unique enough design… ...to compete in the marketplace at this time.” as reviewer said.

thanks

As Collis explained at the beginning, WooThemes were chosen as the launch partner for the new 100% GPL option, as they are a known and established theme shop who have embraced 100% GPL. This helps to encourage others who haven’t joined TF due to the lack of a 100% GPL option that they now have the chance to join. As Collis also mentioned at the beginning of this thread, we do have a Special Rates policy which we added to the knowledgebase some years ago.

Ok, we understand.

Hi,

We are no problem with GPL license since we already sell GPL themes and a lot themeshop also sell GPL themes.

What we need to know is why woothemes is special on themeforest?

1) They are non-exclusive author but got special rate, since it classified but maybe 70% or 100%? who knows?

We also want to sell GPL themes on themeforest with special rate but still can sell our themes on our own site. Can we apply for special rate?

So, woothemes as non-exclusive author is get special rate which is more than 33% and we think its really not fair.

If you are talking about photodune, we understand since photodune is new site in the time you give special rate to the author.

We are talking about themeforest here on the year 2013 and I don’t think you need to “kickstart new initiatives” for themeforest marketplace. Also woothemes themes is not comes into new category and niche.

This is just our opinion, other than that we are welcome woothemes on themeforest though… :)

Hi,

I’m following this discussion.

As exclusive author right now we have one html template for sale on themeforest.

With the new themeforest GPL License, we plan to sell the wordpress version here on themeforest also sell the similar item on our own site. I believe is not break the GPL rules.

I was read above that we as exclusive author can’t sell the theme on other site including on their own site, but buyer who bought the theme from themeforest can sell the theme on other site:

So If our staff bought the theme from themeforest then he can sell it on other site, am I right?

Thanks
