Is it just me or is seems that there are two recent themes on the Creative category that have the same code and different content published by different authors?

If you check the description of the more recent one, it mentiones that both authors worked on the theme.

Im supirsed, given out originality is mentioned when submititng a theme, that this is perfectly acceptable

This, together with the amount of straight copies found lately is really demoralizing

Why am I putting so much time and effort into trying to break into TF with my own code etc, when in reality it seems perfectly ok to just copy other themes from here

Ah well, never mind

Its(their) a nice theme tho! I like :)

OK, if you ask me this is not possible, what if everybody publishes a theme twice, most of us work in partnership (designer/developer)..common

I wonder myself… why not make it in 3 editions? or maybe 5 or 6. It’s cool this way, because they can cover the entire homepage with the same theme!!

I did not aproove this, I just mentioned it for some that might think one author copied another :)

The similarity and the tactics is another story.

People will attempt to circumnavigate any and all rules of fair play – however if this is allowed moving forward I’ve no problem opening several accounts and removing customization options from my themes and releasing the same one with a few different images, color changes and a new font.

Just need clarification and I’ll be on it :)
