I have not given anyone apart from the person who purchased the item to have access to a theme.
These people are having our theme for free whilst profiting from our work.
We actually offer installation and customisations, and now some profits will be lost on our own themes.
Installation services exists for a long time on Envato Studio https://studio.envato.com/explore/wordpress-installation – it’s nothing new. If someone buys your theme, why shouldn’t he be allowed to pay someone else to install that theme?. However the person who installs it for a fee is not allowed to keep that theme and use it in any way. (But the reality might be different as we know)
Does anyone went through the process after clicking this ‘Install Theme’? I wonder if there’s a list of people who offer this service or it is invisible for user and just goes to queue for selected providers. Who actually is doing the installation?
Guys, keep clicking ’ REQUEST STAFF REPLY’ on first post, maybe someone from Envato will come to clear this up.
+1 to that. And I really don’t like the new idea of locking threads like that by default. Shows the attitude to us as authors.
You should design new badge for them “beware: scammer”....

Not trying to play devil’s advocate, but if a theme has 20 bugs and the reviewer starts doing checks, it’s probably right to soft-reject it and stop checking after finding 3-5 each time, otherwise they’d go through less themes a day and the number of approvals would vary massively day to day. I realise eventually they’d spend the same amount of time (multiple soft-rejections) on each theme, but at least they’re shifting through the (long) queue faster.
Exactly, reviewers job is not to get your theme accepted, their job is to accept quality themes – if there’s 20 issues with your theme, it’s not their job to point them to you.
Any news about it?
Are you serious? There are WordPress themes available here from December 2008! What about them? On the other side, they are quite unique now in terms of design.
