So contact Envato support and prove it’s a rip… you know very well it’s of no use bitching about this here.

Circular portfolio: are you the copyright owner of circular shapes? I mean… seriously?

Really don’t see how a circle can be copying

Mate, I am sorry to say but it’s nonsense. I don’t see any actual ripping off anything. It’s called the risk of designing multipurpose generic themes. You and the other author alike are using design concepts widely available these days and if I go back before your theme was released, I’m sure I can find some circle portfolios that I could accuse you of “ripping off”.

To me it doesn’t look like a rip. Just a usage of the “same-old, same-old”.

PS: Also not really sure the “name calling” is okay on forums. You should have taken this up with Envato Support.

Its funny, because your theme ‘Bouncy’ had ripped off code from other theme and was removed from the themeforest :sarcasm:

Exactly the reason why I am reporting this. If ours was a rip off, theirs is too. PS: Ours was not due to design, but shortcode generator PHP code. Totally different cases.

User Q: “Your template already was on themeforest right? But it was delted … may I ask why it was deleted on themeforest?”
Your A: “Yes thats correct, the design was similar to another theme.”!

So after you rip the design of someone else, you get your theme deleted from TF, and now you open a thread because you’ve seen a good theme in TF, that use circle style for the portfolio :) just amazing!

PS: Is the new wp theme with more than 100 sales.
