Have you seen the sales of some of the admin themes? The highest two selling html templates are admin themes. Furthermore, assuming I didnt miscount, 8 of the highest selling html templates on the first page of “top sellers” are admin themes.

The freemarket rules on this website, and judging by the sales of admin themes, this is obviously something that is desired by many buyers. I dont see any motivation yet for people to stop making admin themes. If I look to see what templates are selling best and see admin templates are, why wouldnt I try to cater to that niche of buyers?

Furthermore, its not as if other themes are lacking, this site IMO , is filled with quality templates.

“Basically admin themes drops quality of theme forest so please STOP ADMIN THEMES “

How do they drop the quality? Great design is great design.

Regards,

Drew

@altinkum – I think you are going too far with the comment. Just simply ask the theme you might want to have, instead of saying how admin themes are bad.

If you really want to stop admin themes it might be better to contact the support. I’m pretty sure they will take your opinion seriously and give you an answer.

This suggestion is out of order after your comment so please do not reply, getting a bit to much.

Admin themes are needed by a lot of coders who implement a web application as a service and are not firm in designing or don’t want to spend their time with photoshop.

Hey guys,

Admin themes are a valid file, and it can and will be sold here. In fact many admin themes are outselling regular templates. So there is a market for them, and they are bought. Even if they weren’t bought regularly, they will still be permitted to be uploaded.

I agree there is an influx of admin themes. But is the same thing as what I like to call “The curse of the preloader” over at Flashden. It’s a popular thing to make, and they look great, and sell well, so you get a lot of them uploaded.

I don’t think reviewers will discriminate against template types, if its designed, and laid out well, and functions properly. Of course they still get rejected, just the same if there is something wrong.

I think most designers want every aspect of their site to look and function great. Why would you not keep your site consistent and professional especially if you can buy an admin template for $10.
