Most of us aren’t photographers – that’s why, although I’d like to be one. :)

fyi I’m glad to see Woo coming here and I dont think its that big of a deal, they’ve done a lot for WordPress and could bring a different customer base that wasn’t already shopping on Themeforest.

It’s naive to believe WooThemes will be directing their customers to ThemeForest. It would be business suicide and they have absolutely nothing to gain from it.

I imagine they’re using TF as a platform to reach a new market for their re-occurring subscriptions. Locking in as many people as possible.

You’d be surprised how many people will do a search for Woo themes and end up here buying something else because they like it more.

it has nothing todo with Woo directly directing users here but the fact Themeforst has a better SERP

Ok. I am not at all bothered by entry of another theme author per se, but I do have the following questions:

- Since Woo has its themes on its own site, are they receiving the non-exclusive commission rate of 33% that is offered to all other non-exclusive authors or has some back door deal been worked out between them? I cannot image Woo is settling for only 33% notwithstanding all this “help our friends at Envato” commentary I found in their post at Woo and in the Envato blog.

I would like to see an unequivocal statement from Themeforest that Woo is being treated exactly like all other non-exclusive authors on commission rates, on all themes that are cross-listed – which appear to be all of the themes showing here at Themeforest at this time.

- In reviewing the Themeforest rules and guidelines for theme standards, and for outside linking, it appears these rules have either been ignored, or relaxed. I would like an unequivocal statement from Themeforest that Woo is being held to the exact same standards as all other theme authors.

I know this cannot be the case at this time as, per other comments in this thread, several clear violations have been noted. I also know from conversations with several other them authors in the past that the moment they have violated rule or guideline whether published or not, their themes have been pulled immediately, and without prior notice (to point to one author recently who has experienced this – RT Themes).

So either the policies are applied equally across the board, or they are not. It seems that at this moment, all the Woo themes should be immediately delisted, until their errors and cross linking are fixed.

On all these matters I would appreciate specific, clear, unequivocal responses, from Themeforest so I can understand exactly the playing ground in the marketplace at this time. It very much impacts future decision making in strategies for our forthcoming products.

I should add that as long as the standards and rates are applied equally to Woo as they are to other authors, then welcome to the marketplace. I fear not in the slightest the competition from Woo.

I have requested a staff reply, which I would appreciate being in this thread for all to review.
