Purchased Users are Voting. Very interesting
I have two files and they should be in these new categories…
I know I can’t enter to this contest but I want to change my items categories now. Because after this moment all customers who are looking for music band theme/template will only look at to the new categories and it is not fair for old music & band items… Isn’t it ??
