Yes it is an achievement. It’s an achievement that you will ultimately benefit from because raising the standards of this market place has to be done to keep this marketplace going.

The remarks and attitude toward CiprianTurcu are really showing why there are so many problems with the themes here. Most of the successful authors already follow these standards. Hopefully the requirements will weed out the developers who only care how quickly they can churn out the same crap over and over again just to make a quick buck. Users think all the themes on here are great because they look so pretty in the demos but when they get them home and try to make them actually work they get frustrated and take it out on WordPress not realizing they paid for something that doesn’t actually work or were mislead by the marketing and features and options stuffing going on here.

I help users everyday on wordpress.org with your themes and they paid you. Why because I actually care about WordPress and making users happy.

Thank you CiprianTurcu for your efforts in improving quality. It seems like these standards are finally getting enforced.
