I find it quite rude actually, because you’re trying to make money from someone else’s work. (I’m not saying I’m offended by it, but it’s just a little rude). Also, when some does reply to one of these “advertisements”, they probably have to send the PSD file to the respective coder, and thus violating the rule that you must not redistribute the file, or am I wrong?

If that’s the case, I will NEVER buy another PSD file. It’s no use to me, it’s just a picture.

I totally understand, Mastergreed. If you’re after a simple distraction-free workday then Twitter is not your friend! :-)
Totally off topic: cyan, your avatar is so cute!

oh my. I have made the comment that I would buy a certain PSD template if it was HTML and someone replied that they would code it. Please don’t blame the person replying to the comment. Some of us buyers like a PSD template but are not smart enough to slice and code it ourselves :)

I did finally start a thread to get the PSD coded. I got plenty of replys and love the end product.

P.S. I have a question; what is the purpose of the PSD template? Who is it made for, is it made to other designers or people with code experience? I asked because most buyers I know don’t know how to code PSD into HTML so the template ends up costing hundreds when we can buy a HTML template here for $10.00.

Great! I will add both of you. I’m trying to put together resources for small churches that need to update their websites but can’t afford to pay thousands of dollars to do it. There are alot of church sites that need serious help..lol Alot of church sites are done by member volunteers (I am one) who really don’t know the first thing about designing a site (I fall into that category too). You guys and Themeforest are a big help!

Sorry, I didn’t mean to hijack the thread.

Wow, your site is great. Would you mind if I add it as a resource and link when I get my site up and running? That other site is a cow…lol

hmmm, Themeforest should just price the items to match the increments. No more $6.00/$8.00/$12.00/$15.00 templates. On Graphic River, bundle a bunch of the inexpensive downloads to equal $20.00.

Or…the people who are complaining and don’t like the set up can just take their business elsewhere; that’s the easiest fix.

ha ha ha I’m 51, 52 next week. I am responsible fo updating my churches website (which is down for a complete overhaul). I’m the only one in church who has Photoshop, dreamweaver, Garageband and other editing software.

You guys might want to consider designing themes for churches. Most church sites are sorry and need serious updating. I’ve seen a few themes on here that I bought just so I could play around with and adapt to fit small church needs, like adding sermon download pages, online giving pages and video and audio streaming.

All of you are a great inspiration!

Simnor, I like some of your web templates. They’re pretty cool and seem useful. I even considered purchasing one, but after seeing how you’ve acted in this thread, I’ve decided to buy one from someone that has a real appreciation for design and being a designer. Maybe you do have that appreciation, but you cut other people down during your temper tantrums so I don’t see it that way. I just wanted to let you know that sometimes your actions speak louder than your design talents and can rub someone the wrong way. I just hope your tirade hasn’t cost you more than just MY sale. There’s a way to be professional and I hope you can learn that.
Coach Bobby Knight comes to mind after reading your comment. Bobby Knight has a very abrasive personality. His is known for his tantrums on and off the basketball court. I would not want to hang out with the man or have a personal relationship with him but if I were a college looking for a basketball coach, he would be on the top of my list. A good product is my bottom line; I could care less about the rest.

I want to be involved! ha

I don’t particularly see the problem here. I would agree with the reviewer and Jeffrey on the fact that it isn’t ready.

I find the response by most of the people here that it’s a “great template” to be quite shocking, to be honest. Is it a solid start? For sure. But overall? It’s just lacking.

A note or two:

- Fixed height = no love for people that increase text size

- the portfolio pieces seem awkwardly cut off, I would change this

- I would put a splash of color in, nothing outrageous, but it would definitely help in acceptance (same goes for adding a logo)

Yep, opinions are like a-holes…

- In this kind of design, fixed is the norm.

- the portfolio pieces are examples, people don’t use them on their actual websites, do they?

- sites geared to grown ups are usually subdued when it comes to color. My favorite sites are usually the black and white ones. Logo, for what? I have my own.

Take a look at my favorite site: http://www.gogogunner.com

Also, why does this theme get a go?
