this is almost hilarious, i just made a diff on both items html/css.

html = 51 lines, 9 differences
css = 151 lines, 5 differences

3 days, item still there, no action. Probably waiting for somebody to send a DMCA while the rest of known universe would have been already kicked this author a$$ in the outer space.

This is funny. The id was removed from my message, yet the template is still online. So sad to see this, so everyone can just rip my templates and publish them here.

This happened to me only 3 weeks a go from a well known author. All the author did was change a few images.

He was found guilty and the item was taken down.

Nothing happened to the author. In fact he is still selling well on here :(

Insane..

Let’s forget about all that huge amount of approved copy-cat templates for a minute and everyone think about that horrible 404 error template (whose id was removed) that is still on the homepage (noisy bg).

Honestly, i would like to ask that template’s reviewer what was up.. how could he approve that?

And when i hear that every theme by Duot.. (not mentioning authors…) got rejected at a point, and i see this.

No words.

Don’t you just love TF homepage design: Surely something must be balanced to provide better exposure for new items. Also an option to set default tab (like wp themes or psd templates) for user would be welcome. Other than that, I see no major issues. Price increases are surely welcome, and I hope Envato will continue with timely price updates in the future. High-end WP development is not getting any easier, I’d say now you can easily have 4 times longer production cycle for an item than several years back. Sales are most dependent on the quality of your items – produce nice items and you will have sales.

I really wonder why our content in the forum can be censored within few hours after receiving a ‘complaint’ but after an item has been reported for days, no action has been taken eventhough there are evidences pointing out that the item is indeed copied from someone’s work?

To gain more sales for Envato before removing? I hope that’s not the case.

But for new authors, exposure is extremely important to them because they do not have a ‘customer base’ to begin with. Hence, their items can go unnoticed by potential buyers even if it is of high quality.

I think having a giant search box / filter at the ‘wasted space’ (the one which nobody reads) is a good idea though ;)

PS : I see the ‘noisy’ 404 page appearing at your ‘Medium priority content’ area :p
