I threaten them with a gun.

Seriously though, after you solve a problem, they’re more likely to rate.

Because happy feelings and all.

Good luck.

Just let them be, man.

There’s no bigger flattery than others copying you. :D

North top theme, haters can say whatever they want.

Good luck with your researches..

Thanks! Sounds like you’ve been there before and it didn’t run all that smoothly?

Hopefully i don’t get too many cases of “my hard drive died” like i read in a few threads :)

HAHA.

Oh man.

These are the best. Got about 35+ people telling me the same thing in 6 months.

Seriously, is that “my HDD died” thing a trend? I bet nobody knows that the “dead HDD” can be ~95% recovered. :D

Good luck.

I found this one form here Item Promotion Guidelines . I think staff should judge this case now.
Woah! It’s not OK to: Advertise or promote on either your item or profile pages any additional incentives for the purchase of an item on Envato Market (e.g., if you buy my item or visit my website, you get…) that is outside the functionality of the item or that your customers would not otherwise be eligible for.Additional incentives include but are not limited to:
b. Bonus files such as free content or a lite version of the item
c. Entry into contests or competitions
f. Other tangible goods such as merchandise

Remove all the items on themeforest that offer free plugins / freebies. No.

:)

This is actually a normal marketing technique.

Nothing too interesting / illegal there.

They’ve got lots of themes to back this offer up and perhaps most people are buying it for the other themes.

Props to them.

Hi.

We’re paying good for somebody who can animate an icon. (It’s an SVG and our designer will support you fully if you need recuts or something, he’s currently away so you might need to do some hand by work).

Only people that have done this before need apply. If you’re good, this shall earn you some pocket money quick & easy.

Send us a message with your work & hourly rate.

We’ll get back to anybody either with a “no” or “yes.

Thank you.

Here’s the animation:

A theme I submitted was hard rejected but there was no feedback. I’m curious to the reasons why the reviewer thought it lacked quality and wasn’t unique to the market.

I’m not being bitter here just really honestly curios because I’ve been a professional web developer and freelancer for 12 years now and have/currently work with some really big brand name agencies and companies… so I know the quality is there.

On uniqueness, I’ll happily explain to somebody at Envato in private (don’t want to say here until the theme is on the store) but nobody is selling anything like this here—which is a really bold statement, I know, but there you have it.

I really want to get this product on the store but I can’t improve it if I don’t know what you guys think was wrong with it. All the rejection email said was “Regrettably the Help and Quality Teams are unable to offer a critique or feedback on your rejected submission.”

Hope this leads somewhere. Thanks for your time reading this.

Can I just say something about that “omg my theme’s so unique”?

It’s not. 90% of the people that told me that had a s* design with a s* idea that in their head “was selling a lot”.

It takes a lot of research & industry analysis to come up with that kind of statement.

We’ve released a blog theme, we said “Alright, the space is crowded, might or might not sell”. We’ve released the first theme in an uncrowded / untapped niche, we said “This is gonna sell some copies and in the long-run it’ll be a success, for sure.” And it kind-of was :)

Please stop with these “hurrrr my idea’s so uniqueeeee”, because it’s not.

So share your design, get feedback and try to see what’s wrong. Nobody will be able to replicate your glamorous idea in 2 weeks or so.

Edit: I made a statement some months ago “Never share your idea”. But you gotta understand – nobody’s gonna steal it in 2 weeks. You just can’t come up with a design and code it into WP in that time. Your theme will be up and selling by the time somebody even starts working on it.
