I have followed this post, and honestly i find the theme + plugin method very risky. A question for staff:
What will stop a buyer to reuse the plugin’s we create for a certain theme into another?
Does anyone think that buyers will consider that clause 9 in regular license forbids that? I think that is rubbish as you can’t verify a buyer to see if that clause is respected.
Even now, there are users that buy a theme and use it 3 or 4 times without buying additional regular license.
My two cents, consider very carefully the steps you take with the changes you want, cause my guess is you will see the effect on the market sales. ( hopefully this will not affect us too much and not on long term, but i am sure it will do damages )
Usually when we go on the Earnings Page and click on any month, we will see each day of that month and the number of sales per day.
Now it seems that it doesn’t work. Was this feature removed?
PS: Tested on Firefox and Chrome( Win 7 and Win 8 )
KingDog I do apologize and I kindly ask you to close/lock this thread.
I never understood why the big authors are so rare in replies on the forum. Now i figured out why.
After spending time and thinking about it i consider that i find that the best decision is to not file a DMCA and not punish anyone. If i am right then in the end the number of sales will prove it.
As the final message to this thread: I apologize to all authors that i have might offended and wish you all a wonderful life and an amazing upcoming new year!
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.

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