you should also look into providing a quick start guide of some sort. It need not be long: a short one will do.
Just provide sample docs like how clients can change game name, logo, menu details etc.. and which software can be used to modify game and its character. and add some useful screenshot in it.
looks good but not unique, PSD is most difficult category to get approve on TF. I think you should go for HTML by making partnership with some coder, however its still not guaranteed that HTML template will be accepted or reviewer will ask you to do it for CMS again when you submit the HTML version. But i think it have best chance in some E-Commerce category.
yes there is already a thread or a blog post i think where all popular websites are linked which uses themeforest templates.
I also want to give some suggestions to envato in current scenario.
1. I think envato should increase the price of their multipurpose themes by 2x. Please see below screenshot which is from one of there competitor which is selling a creative blog theme for 125$ :oO (and is still selling better compare to their site traffic) But not only envato should increase the price but also the quality of these multipurpose themes because almost all of them look and feel same in design. By Increasing price envato profit will also increase as mentioned in above posts but also the single purpose or niche theme will sell well in there category.
2. Envato needs to redesign, rethink their Affiliate program the current rules are useless and not catchy for affiliates so they can advertise on their site because they can not make money with current referral system of envato. Now a days i hardly find site where envato items are linked as referral first there was a lot of sites advertising envato items as a affiliate when i search on google for some special keyword theme or plugin.
3. Envato should take care of pirated sites where all TF, CC items are available for free download (by doing ddos maybe :D).
4. Envato should make a plugin or verification for Themes so only 1 user can install a theme in one time. I have seen many times when my clients are using same theme or plugin on different sites without any issue and getting updates for all of them without any worries.
I have also more suggestions but i don’t think envato will look into them or that i wrote above. Because envato track record in these matter is not very good because i saw they reply very rarely to these advise that are most worthy by their authors which have taken envato to this stage. anyways i wish everyone best of luck.
Thanks for reading, Best Regards, Zee
just for info link in main post go to 404.
Why coder get more and not designers?
Design make first impression and its design that sells (on TF only). and its coder fault that the coded theme produced the bugs and that’s why he need to support so its on all coder and not designer .
I am designer and coder myself and i think designer work is more creative and complex than a coder. Designer and its design make first impression on buyer and that’s why buyer buy the themes. But after buying theme they see problem in codes and back-end and they report so its coder that have to support.
Designer part is one time but coder part is also one time if he do 100% perfect like designer. But in CMS there are bugs everyday so coder have to update his code so otherwise coder deserve less than 50%.
So 50/50 is good or if design is not well than 60/40 is enough.
Here is few suggestions that i found. Search dropdown in header is messed and social icons above the footer hover is not looking good. Also increase the darkness of footer little bit. Blog readmore buttons and some other buttons should be minimal border button in my opinion then it will match with other design. recent projects filter not working correctly. bottom space of top menu in inner pages is not well. and page header can be improve further.
