Of course there are good designers and coders in one. A lot of authors here are that way.. and let’s not forget that a lot are referring to themselves as “we”, but they are still “I”.

Just don’t give up, man. Spend maybe a year or more in improvement. Don’t hurry to release a theme here. Look what the other authors are doing, every aspect of every theme. Web design trends. Improve, improve, but don’t give up.

As for this theme – it just needs, a lot, a lot of improvement. It will be best to create something anew.

Just my piece of advice :)

I suppose must of you has used both of these great free slider. I wanted to see what’s you opinion on them and which one is better for you?

Let’s not speak about the premium ones like Layer Slider, Revolution, etc.

You like one of the more because it’s better for styling, callbacks? Just wanted to see some feedback from you the other authors :)

Thanks for all the answers. You’ve been very helpful. I personally has never charged until now, but there haven’t been any complex customizations

Can you please tell me how much do you charge for let’s say something that will take you 20-30 minutes. Just for reference. Thanks :)

How do you proceed with clients wanting little CSS customizations with a theme?

Do you include it in the free support or do you get paid additionally? For now I don’t see it as a problem to help a client do small customization but what happens in the future when you have more themes, more clients.

I’m curious how you the other authors proceed with this type of clients?

Most of the time they give a reason that the template is under minimum requirements. Can they ever explain what are those requirements?

Here you are right :)

This is a regular practice of review team. They reject designs for baseless reasons that’s why they afraid of giving a proper reason for rejection.

I can understand them. They are humans after all. We as human cannot exactly draw the line between good and bad design. It’s not a math where you can say 5 is bigger than 4 and 3 is smaller.

Just received a message with a proposal – they are offering me a banner space for $250 per month. Received also Googla Analytics as a proof – 45 000 unique visitors, 86% Bounce rate…

How do you trust such agreements? What are you asking for? Have you ever agreed to an offer like this?

Any information that you share will be of great help.
