Hey Dodoweb! Love your last blog theme man, fantastically creative! Take a look at latest WP themes and you should see it :)

Thank you! Much appreciated, especially coming from you!

Btw, I checked the latest theme before asking, but I was unable to find it somehow… however, I have found it now. And agree on both points.

Cheers

You’re welcome, we love your theme, its awesome :)

I can see it coming. Altough, I am quite surprised the reviewers let such thing pass. Mainly speaking of the visual quality.

We’re a bit surprised ourselves. We feel this way about several themes, but do not want to continue to fill out DMCA’s every single time, or file a support ticket. Who has that much time?

We feel things like this should be easily caught right away before approval.

And all of that is in addition to the wrong price :)

To be honest, many items are copies of very well known sites. It doesn’t take a genius to see it, so I can definitely relate to how you feel. (Please don’t ask which of what, I won’t.)

You know, when I see them having sales based on stealing, it makes me..Well, I can’t hate but I just have that gut in my throat, not cool.

Borrowing is okay, each one of does it. We’re definitely influenced by what we see, how else would’ve we gotten “visual experience” ?

But, I think it’s okay to let them be. I never complain about them because I’m sure that keeping it “real” and striving to be different pays off. So I am sure that guy won’t get far.

@themeflame … yes we agree with that statement. But there is also a fine line that can be walked, and a lot of the time is crossed. We are definitely influenced by what we see, and even things that are completely innovative have been influenced by something before it. That is true for every industry out there. But when it comes to a Wordpress theme, I think that line is a bit finer since there are always “constants”. Maybe we are a bit calloused towards it because we’ve seen it happen a lot, which I guess is attributed to Avada being the top theme. But it’s beyond frustrating to see a theme that has “borrowed” many elements become a high selling item. It just feels wrong, but that has only happened once in our eyes. Most of them do not make the top files.

It’s a touchy subject, and I feel that if other authors had it done to them, they would understand that it’s wrong and would not ever do it to anyone else. But then again, that is living in a wishful world ;)

I really have no idea what theme you’re talking about since all Avada-like themes are completely same.

I think you just answered for yourself … “Avada-like” ;)

Either way, we should probably close this thread out before it gets a bit out of hand.

Dzinc, will you do the honors please?
