both items can be high quality
I guess we can agree that owing to Envato’s quality standards, both items WILL be high quality.
At the same time, a theme can go well beyond being just high quality when its made by someone with inimitable design skills and focus. On the other hand, another decently experienced author can still make a decently high quality theme but not as high quality as the former author.
There has been quite a confusion in this thread, so I’ll pitch in and try to describe doru’s point more clearly.
Author: Highly experienced with obsession with detail, simplicity, and focus.
Design: Built on extremely high design standards with inimitable attention to details like typography, layout, usability, accessibility etc.
Code: Highly standards compliant code.
Feature set: A base theme with no extra bundled plugins, no bonus homepage styles or image rotators.
Author: Just started making themes. Gathered enough experience / knowledge in a few months to understand ThemeForest’s base standards.
Design: Barely acceptable made by someone who primarily only codes.
Code: Barely acceptable and up to the standard.
Feature set: 100+ freely available plugins. 100+ image rotator styles. Bonus homepage styles with every possible iteration of the elements on the page.
Price: $X + ~ $10
What attracts regular buyers the most? Theme 1 or 2?
quickandeasy saidLess features doesn’t mean lower quality. This is a great misconception about stock files and unfortunately, this is what buyers think now. That’s why originality is almost dead on the marketplaces..
Sooo… what you’re saying is: “Higher quality template files that have more customisation options and features sell better than lower quality files with less features” ...?
