Guys, I’m new here and I was just browsing the templates to find something nice for my new project and I noticed that all new Wordpress and all new Joomla items has the same comment from the same author – “well done” ?!?? Is that some kind of tradition here :D

Its something that some authors do in order to gain more traffic to their files, hoping that it’s better than working on new items. I do think it’s profitable since I kinda follow one of them. I think it should be stopped somehow, this is pretty unfair.

Since it’s profitable I was thinking to ask some authors help me to build a Java program that would automatically post GLWS’s. It’s pretty stupid to re-visit the website every hour to check for new files, not to mention the lack of sleep during nigh time. It should be pretty smart, post different comments, maybe use AIML in order to have the possibility to engage other users.

That way we can all post GLWS’s so wont make any difference.

Observed this even 4-5 years back in ActiveDen: “Nice File”

Initially I used to enjoy when someone makes such comments in my items :P But later understood that they do the same for every crappy files too like a machine. Usually someone will do this for 3-4 months and get tired (after knowing there is no traffic gain) and another author will do the same and so on. So each item has guaranteed 3-4 lifeless complementaries :D

Guys, this author does not get tired :D He is still posting and posting. On some of the most selling items there are multiple comments by him. It is quite annoying and should be stopped. I know that this is against the forum rules but I just cannot stand seeing this comment everywhere, so this is the spammer in question:

I hope Themeforest support can send him a warning at least. There is a BIG difference between being nice and spamming on all items.
