Interesting stuff as always Sam, cheers!
I think this may be the reviewer being a little overzealous, that’s a great looking theme, soft reject, yeah I’d understand that, you can definitely polish it a little more, but hard reject is a bit much.
I’d just try working on some of the details a bit, maybe consider if that background image really adds to the theme, and then re-submit.
EDIT: work on your forms styling a bit, looks a little average at the moment.
I believe he means it is like 99designs because there is no guarantee of any compensation for the effort a developer would put in. You say equity, what if the brand is a complete fail, the time that a developer puts in goes to waste.
Exactly, it’s like 99designs because it’s people who want something for nothing, and are then willing to pay (in terms of equity return) if it works, yet the developer gets jack if it fails.
Maybe 99designs isn’t the best example, but you know what I mean.
If people are doing work, they should be paid properly, unless they’re interning, in which case they should receive adequate payment in terms of professional training (and still be paid), I hate this culture that’s being created that everyone should work on an idea for free until it works.
Thats why I posted it in Global Off topic and my link is verifiable. I am not spamming since I clearly know the rules. I am just merely asking for advice. This is nothing like 99 designs.
As I said, I apologise if the forum review approves your post, but considering your link actually opened my email client instead of the site, I assume you were going for referrals and did it wrong.
Here’s my advice: The site is exactly like 99 designs, work for free basically.
EDIT: By “these forums” I meant the overall Envato Forums, not just the sub-forum chosen.
After reviewing the site mentioned I’ve flagged your post, everything about this seems a bit off and also your link doesn’t seem right for these forums.
Of course I could be wrong and apologies in advance if the forum reviewer find this to all be above board.
Sounds like 99 designs, just for developers tbh. If brands want developers they should offer pay, not “equity” of a business that may never take off.
I get the error message “You need to set CHMOD 777 for all folder and subfolder in catalog/view/theme/beamstore/skins!”
There you go then, you just have incorrect permissions set on your folders, you can set this via an FTP program of your choice, or drop an email to your web host support team who can help you set folder permissions like this.
