This idea came to me a few days back. Why don’t we make a community theme?

Here’s how it works: Each user does something very simple (giving about 10 mins to it) and adds it onto the theme being created on this thread. The user downloads the files from the previous post and works on it for a few mins, and then posts his version here. The next person does the same and it keeps on going and going. Once the homepage design is complete, any user can proceed with the sub pages. And in the end, we start the coding (someone does half the menu, the other completes it. The next one does the navigation, the forth adds some jquery, etc)... And in the end we have a theme created for free! Each user can proceed with anything…

We can even proceed to develop it for wordpress.

Like the idea? Should we do it?

We must use properly licensed stuff as always. Any one can use it for any number of times, but a link to the thread saying “Powered by ThemeForest” could be helpful ;)

PS: The files will have to be uploaded by the user to his server or some free service. If envato wants to jump in officially, we could be given an option for this, and so the downloaders can only be members, making it even better ;)

The idea is thoughtful but the management needed for this isn’t worth it. Besides, different authors have different levels of skill and some elements can’t just be “half-done” and passed on because someone else might not know what you’ve done.

Sorry. :-P

Sounds like a great idea, I also want to contribute to it once the theme is ready and put for sale. I forgot to mention I’ll contribute my bank account number! :whistle:

I share AlexPascal’s opinion. :)

It’s like the equivalent of that game I can’t remember the name of where you just write random stuff on a bit of paper then pass it on to someone else and at the end someone reads it out and hilarity ensues?

It sounds kind of fun except we’d no doubt get the equivalent of that snotty kid who just writes “boobs” every time it’s his turn :p

The other author can fix it. And the previous author will have to learn from it :P

Can we do it in Fireworks instead of Photoshop? (...she asks, knowing there’s no chance in hell…)
