Guys, I’m a long time buyer here on Envato and I’m sadly seeing that review team often does not do the best work… Check out theme that was available here before (in which I was interested):

Another designer submitted a new theme lately… Isn’t the similarity stunning?

Sadly, I may give up making purchases here on ThemeForest just because of being afraid of using a design that, I won’t afraid to say this, would be plagiarised version of something else. At this point I’m disappointed by the route ThemeForest took lately, hopefully they’ll come back to the old rule of ‘quality over quantity’.

Ugh, that is ugly. All you can do is to report anything like that. Reviewers can’t have knowledge about all designs in the world or about what others already reviewed but can be helped by reports. Quicker the better because many buyers will want money back.

Hey guys.

I’m author of the first one, what happens is that the designer of both is the same guy, so don’t worry, we aren’t copying or cloning the designs :D

Cheers, Rafael Angeline

The designer is http://themeforest.net/user/rodbor which designed both those themes, they are obviously not cloned.

I’m a little bit dissapointed that some members think that, if they have the same background image, they’re cloned. Too bad.

The design is very similar but not the same. Theese products have diffrent technical specs, for exaple Tharsis is a responsive template.

Yeah, I judged without knowing all the facts. It’s first time I hear that the same design is given to different developers to transform it into a wp theme.

I recently asked about something similar on the forums, a staff told me no. This is so confusing.

I really wouldn’t worry about it, surely when you’re buying a theme from ThemeForest people are going to have a similar website design to you? Just my two cents…
