Hello everyone,

I cannot tell you how sad I am right now :-(

First of all, these type of accusations should not be posted on the item wall, dragging me, Themeforest, the community and Mediacreed themselves through the mud. It is beyond unprofessional.

Second, I have NOT copied anything from Mediacreed’s amazing Synergy template, the themes have some similarities, but they serve the exact same purpose, and are of the same style. For instance, why would I move the sidebar to the right or top, just for the sake of it, not to be accused of?

There are tons of completely different features and styles between the themes, Synergy is HTML5, Asgard is not. Asgard is crawlable, Synergy, I assume, is not. The inner pages are completely different, I have masonry layouts, Synergy doesn’t.

And honestly, I have seen tens of themes like these two, even on Themeforest, cannot see why all the fuss is about, resolving to some members like Virtuti directly abusing them! That is beyond spiteful, to say the least.

Finally, even if there was an issue, this is between Mediacreed and me, nothing to do with others, if they feel so affended, they can sue me, I will support my work, I have worked tons of hours on this, and will not tolerate such accusations.

And last of all, Mediacreed, you have even purchased my theme (I have NOT purchased Synergy), check every bit of my code, I am sure you won’t find anything similar, I have developed this for scratch. End of story.

PS: Ben Sheppard is a friend on Facebook, he is not an affiliate or anything, he simply gave feedback through the development progress.

Dear copy user,

I did not contact virtuti. You are very wrong. Virtuti did what she thought and she posted her own opinion.

Also KBR Media posted his own opinion. Now it is clear to me that you used Synergy as a reference and tried the easy way by copying as much as possible.

How is that the Gallery Preview is the same, How is that Portfolio Preview is the same( except the buttons ) Show me another template like that pretty please.

Anyway as i posted on my comment:

<quote>But you did flagged my comment. Why?

You didn’t copied the code but the design and look and animations you already did.

Anyway the item will prove if it is worth it. There is a compensation law in life. How you do is how you receive. Life and buyers will give you exactly what you deserve.

Good Luck with sales. See you in 1 week.

Cheers,
Mediacreed

Seriously thinking to make an outside website for this. :D
You’re concentrating on the wrong things now. Don’t let this control your life and the way you use your precious time.

Yes you are very right. I won’t concentrate this, believe me that i will make it just for fun and i will have fun while doing it. Will i do it now? No

Will i do it this month? No. But there will be a time when i will have enough of this copy users and believe me that authors will gather and will have enough of them.

Thank you for your opinion!
Cheers,
Mediacreed

There should be an option for items, something like a title “Shameful clone of the original theme: ORIGINAL_THEME_LINK ”. Thing activated after valid complains are filled.

+1000 You have made my day with that suggestion. Seriously thinking to make an outside website for this. :D

For me it looks a copy (worse copy) of yours, definitely. You need to report to Envato. As far as I noticed, Enavto removes clones.

Thank you for your opinion :) Cheers,

If the world will end in December 2012 or not we will have to wait and see. Anyway is not like we can do something about it.

If it is scientific then the event will occur 100%. If it is divine then so help us God :)

Does anyone have experience with requestAnimationFrame?

Scenario:

1. I have a bunch of canvas items
2. When i “mouse over” an item, it modifies it’s shape(redraws the canvas up to a certain point, when the animation is cancelled)
3. When i “mouse out” an item, the shape modifies again(redraws the canvas from the point where the animation was left, until it hits the beginning value)

Bug:

When i put my mouse over an other item, the requestAnimationFrame cancels my first animation and continues with the second one. So my first item has a bad shape(it stops the animation where it was when i hovered the second item). And this goes on for all my items.

Solution:

I think that this is because the requestAnimationFrame is working on the window object. Does anyone has any experience in putting the function on an object, so that you can have multiple requestAnimationFrame instances running on the screen at the same time?

I don’t have any experience with requestAnimationFrame on canvas. I do have an experience with animations and i could help you with hints. Also i like fixing tough bugs or finding solutions to temporary issues.

Send me a private message and I will try and help you!

Cheers,
Mediacreed

We’re sorry this happened to you mediacreed, and for what it matters, to us it looks as well a bit too close to your template, if you look at the preview image on the template’s presentation, there’s even one image which is the same :) However, that image or any of the others don’t appear then in the actual live preview.

Thank you for posting your opinion :)

I really don’t see the outrageous copy. It’s most likely inspired, but that’s all i;m sure there isn’t copied code. How about Ruben’s WowWay or Elastico, they could say you stolen the idea and did it differently, however they didn’t. We all seek inspiration somewhere. I also found bits of my work here on the markets and i was actually flattered my work is inspirational.

I’m sure you’re just really pissed off right now, that’s all :)

EDIT: My point is that you shouldn’t take it too personal and get through this quickly.

I also see you’ve calmed down now, which is really good :)

Hi,

Just as an extra info. Synergy was developed long time ago, long time before Elastico and WowWay.

See my flash profile and see my February 2012 Synergy Template:

http://activeden.net/item/synergy-xml-template-with-deeplinking/1625550

So i had nothing with Ruben’s and Spade invaders because they have same design principles. But from principle to look and animations it is a long way to go.

My 2 cent opinion.

Cheers,
Mediacreed

Mate we all support you in this, we’ve all felt or will feel at a certain point what you’re feeling now, what everybody is against here is your attitude regarding the matter. I know, it su#%s to be in your position now, but just try to calm yourself down. If that’s really copied from you it will stand no chance in front of yours because:

1. yours is better

2. yours is featured

3. yours already has a bucket load of sales and clients love seeing that

So just try to calm down, leave the lawyers out of this, contact support, but try to analize the guy’s code and see if he really stole it. Sending Envato a few print screens won’t help. Everybody gets inspired here, as I said, nobody here is Steve Jobs or Bill Gates.

Cheers




Thank you for sharing your opinion Ruben. I will follow the procedural steps.

I’m just saying .. there are authors on here which experienced the same stuff as you do now.. And after a lot of stress and frustration, they didn’t accomplish anything pursuing legal action.. The copy was taken down for a bit, then it got back up, and this was the end of it.. Happened before, so i don’t see why your case should be different..

Even if you don’t say it i can feel your support for me. So thank you and i am experiencing it for the first time so if you knew how it felt the first time it happend to you then i am pretty sure you understand me :)

Mediacreed

Thank you for your comment :). I am calm, i am honest and i am telling that i was really nervous in my first comments. But after the 2nd page i calmed down.

I am not here in arguing with any other users. So as we men do sometimes, I do apologize if i offended any other author that replied to this comment.

I expressed my thoughts and was as direct as it could be.

Cheers,
Mediacreed
