That doesn’t say anything about doru at all. It was merely a hypothesis as to what a review may think.

The problem with code, as I see it, is there is no defined right or wrong way to do something.

We could all code the same concept, and we would all probably do it different. Each of us would have our reasons for the path we choose to code it.

I am not excusing bad code at all. There is an underlining base standard we should all comply to. Well designed and coded themes sell well. Those that aren’t, don’t.
Because he thinks that incompatibility, cluttered code and bad coding is not a bad thing, yes it does say something about doru, the fact that he thinks that way is a pointer to how he thinks when building his own products and how he makes his decisions. Not trying to hate on the man, it’s just an observation based on his response ;)

Doru never said that at all. What he said was the reviewer may turn a blind eye if: a) the design is really strong. b) The code is good, but not as strong as it could be.

He never once mentioned that bad code was ok.

I am sorry to say this, but your replies always seem to be bashful. Lets be positive. Maybe YOU can suggest ways that authors can increase the quality of their code and practices, rather than just saying the code is rubbish and ending.

Don’t know if is a bad thing, but if the item looks great the reviewer may close an eye on how the code is organized and if the item is not broken, he will approved it.
Well sir, if you are thinking like that, that said a lot about you as a person, as you as a coder and how you build your products and make decisions.

Hey Patisss,

I have a few themes I would consider porting over to WP but you would need to handle the support and the documentation.

Have a look and let me know what you think.

I also think a collab with mafloral / Lester maybe worth while, I know he is keen to hook up with some one :)

Thanks

You can make yourself an idea of what is accepting just by browsing the marketplace. There is no need to bother the reviewers, just check the items on sale.

Makes a very good point :)

Nice. My only comments are the font maybe a little small, and I am unsure on the punch marks.

Personally I would be surprised if this wasn’t accepted, but I am unsure on how populated the area is for this submission.

:)

Are you could just post the design as suggested above, and get feedback before you slice and code.

The forum is full of talented authors with years worth of experience. I am pretty sure if they think its ready, you will have a chance of being accepted.

Just an idea.

I think maybe sitting downing and working out what you want from all this may help.

Find a niche, something you enjoy making. Get on Dribbble or Forrst and see who you can work with.

Its worth mentioning that once one page is designed, the others usually take less time due to the site / basic styles being designed / coded.

I think you just answered your own question.

At the moment you can’t afford a good, experienced designer, and need to find a junior, or someone who is looking to get into the game, and work with them.
