I think people should absolutely NOT delete the PSD file. I know its tough because they can just buy it as a functioning template. But I personally don’t keep files on my hard drive too long. There have been many occasions where I re-downloaded files months later. And I would be very frustrated if I found out something I bought was no longer available to me, because it was turned into a template, that I had no access to. I think by deleting the file you are seriously hurting the buyers of the original PSD . That just my 2 cents.

If that would be an issue why can’t ThemeForest just continue to provide the files for download for the item’s buyers. Then you can still download your files 6 months later but the seller isn’t getting double exposure.

OR

If there is a PSD and an HTML Template for sale of the same design, just setup the front page so it only show’s the HTML Template or something.

I think the psd should be left with the template, what if I user needs to change a graphic or update the logo? The psd is really the best way to allow users to completely customize the template they purchased.

taking advantage of the system

This is the problem, but more personal.

I’m just glad someone turned off the caps lock on this thread, that is absolutely annoying.

The psd is still available in site template and the since the prices are in some cases almost equal for both categories then You can still download the PSD :D

But then you would have to purchase the template to get the file you’ve already paid for.

Yeah we could go on an on with this. My intention was to nicely ask authors to be moral and not to take advantage of the system and play fair like most of us here. I guess that comes down to individuals decision.
