Thanks for all the congratulations and kind words on breaking the record and thanks to Envato for making it possible in the first place.
A huge thank you to the people which have helped me along the way, the developers, those offering advice, the customers (even the challenging ones), and of course to my small but growing support team for the extraordinary work they provide on a daily basis – I couldn’t do it without them.
It’s been a fantastic year for authors in general and here’s to making 2012 even greater for all of us.
Yes, I’m aware that sounded like I have won an Oscar.
@clstainbrook – The custom tabbed widget showing all 4 tabs sounds like a JS conflict and the space around the thumbnails sounds like you will need to ‘regenerate’ your featured images. I can walk you through both of these issues in the support forum – http://support.premiumpixels.com
Wow thanks guys! I have only just found out about this thread, sorry I’m a bit slow! So far ThemeForest has been awesome and I’m looking forward to releasing some more themes very soon.
Thanks for all the support, it’s truly appreciated!
@pau1winslow – You’re right, I don’t invent everything under the Sun, I’ve also never claimed to have done so. If you were wrongly accused of copying then that’s certainly a shame.
The free theme, in my mind, is a copy. The original poster here may not have been aware of it.
When all is said and done, who really cares. Let’s all have a cup of tea.
Thanks Bluz, appreciate the comments! Unfortunately “I guess that if it was to similar it wasn’t get accepted in the first place” doesn’t always ring true, just last week a theme was allowed onto the marketplace that actually was my entire theme (code-wise) but with css changes.
I guess what I’m asking for is a definitive answer from Staff so we can all get on (well, me and Erik) with eating mince pies
Hey guys, ultimately I’m looking for some Envato staff to chime in here and put an end to this debate that is going on in the comment section of this item – [removed]
Some feel that this theme is too similar to a theme that I have personally released recently and others disagree. Erik, the author, is a great designer and I have been a fan of his work for quite some time so this post should in no way be considered an “attack” for want of a better word – I’d rather clear this up either way and move on.
Erik has disclosed that he used a theme of mine, amongst others, as inspiration and so the question is “how similar is too similar?”. I am certainly not suggesting that it is a 1-2-1 copy by any stretch.
If any Envato staff can jump in here to sort this out that would be much appreciated. If this is deemed ok to stay on the marketplace then perhaps the comments should be removed from the item to prevent further debate.
And yes, I have asked support to clear this up, a few days ago now and no response.
Hi guys and gals, my name is Orman and I’m a web designer based in the UK. As the title suggests, I’m looking for a developer to take PSDs and turn them into fully functional WordPress themes.
I am already a TF author (under another account “awesem”) and so coding the themes myself is not an issue, I am just looking for an extra pair of hands… or two.
The basis for any agreement would be a fixed project fee quoted by the developer(s) for each given theme. At the moment I am not looking for any revenue share agreements. Time frame for completion would ideally be 3 weeks (max) with a new theme being given to the developer every 4-6 weeks.
To help the developer(s) I have a working framework that includes custom widgets, theme options etc. The task in hand would really be skinning this framework to match the PSDs. Every so often, additional custom widgets may be required.
If you are interested in seeing my work etc, you can find out more about me at PremiumPixels.com
If you are interested in taking on this type of work then get in touch with an indication of your rates and some examples of your coding skills (preferably items you have sold on TF)
