Hey everyone. I think it’s time to do a bit of Spring….err..Winter cleaning. As many of you might have noticed, there are a dozen or so themes that simply don’t belong on this site.

Starting this week, a few of you might receive an email stating that your template has been canceled. I don’t imagine that we’ll be deleting more than ten or so. However, if this includes you, I offer sincere apologies. Unfortunately, we made a few mistakes when getting started.

The majority of you have nothing to worry about. This is simply one of the many ways that we are improving the selection on ThemeForest.

And stay tuned for an exciting competition, beginning January 1!

You all are welcome to pipe in as well. Though, to save the author from embarrassment, please contact me directly through my user page, or by emailing sitemanager@themeforest.net.

Sigh! I was very fond of my RainbowAsMyHat wordpress theme.. but, hey, it was never sold! You made the right choice. I’ll give away it for free as soon as I can. After all, it was well coded.

I think this is a good action.

@Postream – It’s primarily because that particular theme didn’t really have an audience. Your other template is great!

I have recently sent a support email regarding this. It was unfair for the newly accepted themes. A winter cleaning would be nice!

Jeffrey, quick question on how you are doing this and maybe for the future. Are these themes just with 0 sales, if they do have sales whats the buyers going to feel like if the theme is released for free?

99% of the themes that will be deleted will have zero – or possibly one sale. I doubt that the template being released for free would be too much of an issue.
