with just 4 themes. congrats!
I’m sure you are right. But with so much income you can be more creative isn’t it?
i don’t know about what links is talking, but i am not agree with you. if an author find a way to make a very good income from theme, then should stick to that. i think all authors try to find that “formula”, to make a theme what meet all the market needs.
another think is related to the creative attribute. i always smile when i see peoples claiming that when is talk about a market, about templates. is like you want to buy a logo from a stock market where is sold xxxx times and claim is creative (in the visual context, that meaning is very close to unique).
who want something unique / creative should go to an agency and pay according.
just wanted to tell you are doing a great job on yr templates, in special on Melodious one. I imagine a very large amount of time spent there.
regarding the rips, i though for flash is more easy to be protected. it seem not.
just few cheap thoughts:
is like on football / soccer, who gets more faults? those who know well with the ball. unfortunately, if you are good in what you are doing, is hard to stay under thieves radar.
but, if your files are already on warez, why do you want to delete theme from market? the honest peoples will buy the items, even they can find them and for “free”. on the other hand, you can get potential clients for more bigger individual projects.
at least, you can let a note on yr profile you will not support any of yr files, to not get bothered by buyers.
but, you know more better what you should do.
I should release my “install WP theme from activation code” script to other authors.@dtbaker, yes, you should . but, to can get a reward for your work, you can put in codecanyon, i am sure will have buyers.
on the market the lemons have a double price now…
