Another theme company (RocketTheme – I dont know if I can say there name) has a thing called RocketLauncher which is the WordPress default installer however there theme, required plugins and demo content is already configured.

So when you install WordPress you are installing the theme, demo and plugins with the demo content.

If only we could do something like that here.

The response Iman got from Support is of course correct:

Unfortunately, authors may not offer free or bonus items or services outside of the main download package on the Marketplaces, nor promote free items or services anywhere on the Marketplaces.

Support is classified as an opt-in option and is not considered a promotional service.

Can you show me where that rule is written?

It seems to me that creating a theme where I offer 1000+ things is fine. But doing an content demo import that takes 1 min, is no longer accepted.

Honestly I do not know what to say … :(

I really don’t care if people install themes, offer free customizations, etc. I just think that you should not be allowed to advertise these type of services together with the theme.

This is mostly what I opened this thread about, perhaps I could have worded this better.

I advertise PRO support, meaning theme usage only, sometimes bugfixing install issues, no other services advertised, you can check my support tab for my items. (mostly install issues with Joomla quickstarts)

I think you have worded it properly :)

Advertising PRO support is ok (at least for me). The problem sometimes seems to be distinguishing support from the neck massage services that were mentioned before.

I don’t think my support tab makes it hard to distinguish support from something else such as other services http://themeforest.net/item/antares-any-purpose-template-for-joomla/5549648/support

Yeah… I was saying that I don’t really see any problem with that. If I ruled the world you will have my blessing :D
