So straight to the question:
Is it possible to give away for free a template that I’ve deleted from couple of months ago from themeforest? It’s no longer here or any other sites?
I really hope that this will be like dubstep music (why did I come up with THIS comparison?!) – a high peak and then straight downwards… I hope.
I really want to see the Envato opinion on this.

If it doesn’t help contact the author of the corresponding theme.
Well, the title is pretty self explanatory.
Do you use some special app for saving some modules or components that you use often. Or when you need something as a base for your new design, so you have the bare bones version of it?
I used gist a little, but I don’t like that you can’t link a html and js file, and there is no preview. And codepen on the other hand has always looked a little bit clunky for me, so I decided to see what you fellow authors use?
Yes, I know that. It just made a bad impression on me, when the designer shared that information with me.
You are absolutely right, there are so much assets available for commercial use and I would use a copyrighted image unless the author personally give me a permission.
Maybe it goes like this, an author is in search for images, sees a fellow author who uses cool ones in its theme and says to himself: “Oh! If that author is permitted to use these images, then I can too.”
(The threat title is a rhetorical question.)
Okay, so right now I’m working on the demo of my forthcoming theme and asking some artists and designers to use their work for.
I stumbled of an interesting case – a designer rejected giving me a permission and after that he said something along the lines of “Yes, I know that my works are used, and I’m taking the necessary steps to end this.”
The worst part is that I’ve seen his work on a themes by some Elite authors here. Well isn’t this bad of the reputation of the whole marketplace and at the same time unfair to the other authors who want to to this the legit way?
I know, I know that images are not everything but they DO sell and it’s question of principle. Where would this market go if everyone is stealing left and right?
