For 20$ I say its damn cheap for a amazing theme. I think people should pay when the price is low. There is no need to rip. And of late as I have started making my own themse, I did realize with a little bit of HTML/CSS knowledge ripping if a demo is available is quite easy.
Dont PM me on ripping guides, I wont support piracy. Pay for such a beautiful theme and appreciate the designers time and efforts.

Yes as said in description majority of icons re replaced by fontawesome icons with custom css styling.
Thanks for the feedback though.

For me personally, no amount of screenshots can compare to actually seeing the theme in action. But again thats just me.

Good luck with sales, I think that this is a good looking theme.

Thank you buddy , Glad you like the theme and thanks for the feedback.
Yeah the rippers were a nuisance , you know what every theme i made is on those rippers sites.
This is what the conversation with one guy , who demanded me to give away my latest work for free lol.

i know you spent hours making your themes but yeah so do Hollywood who spend millions of dollars on the entertainment industry and yet piracy will never stop. i do get your point still but it is what it is bro. YOU CANT STOP PEOPLE RIPPING YOUR THEMES. okay.

And as you say a demo is real lively and i can see the effects which you cant on a picture. Some amazing effects like the keyframe animations , the jQuery effects etc. May be i could make a video demo to showcase all the features i have incorporated. Thats my only solution.

Sorry to hijack this thread with further off topic conversation, but I felt I should express my two cents. I think you're better off providing a demo and receiving more sales. Regardless of whether you have a demo or not the theme can and will be ripped if someone wants to rip it. They can just find another site using the theme and rip it from there. Not having a demo doesn't protect you in any way and only hurts your chances of making more sales. This seems so obvious I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish exactly.

Thanks Wils for the feedback and suggestions.
Hmm, yes i agree, as all my themes were ripped.
I would make a demo , for sure, in 2-3 days, but will try to make certain changes to it.

The forum that hosted a lot of ripped themes has been shut down. I remember my theme being ripped a few months ago and I went to check for it the site has been redirected to a hosting company. I couldn't find your theme.

Well , the members were not shut down lol.
They have opened another forum now.
I saw it recently and saw my forum theme either.
Anyways, to combat them , we should try some alternative, something to do with PHP

envira just keeps getting better...

This. Remember what happened when iTunes became obsessed with DRM to stop piracy? It only hurt the paying customers. The pirates simply got around the DRM.

Remember the recent release of the new SimCity? It required a CONSTANT online connection to play. The DRM was hacked in 2 hours after the release. So the pirates didn't require an online connection to play and the paying customers did require a connection to play.

You see where this is going? It only hurts your honest paying customer who's trying to support you.

Why not experiment with different pay plans instead of hurting your customers? Just look how much Netflix reduced piracy. Piracy is sometimes a sign of people not having an efficient payment plan (though not always.)

I don't support piracy but sometimes you just need to be honest..

Well i cant pass on a long comment but i am not a big company like Apple or EA to cover my losses. I would make a demo which i am looking for certain tools which can prevent poossible leeching of theme.
I am rewriting the demo themes with inline styling probably which would make the ripping a daunting task.
Unfortunately, they're gonna be ripped. Most hacking forums use MyBB, so MyBB does get negative attention from them at times. I do however, think that all the hacking forums is giving MyBB an edge in security. Some of the largest MyBB forums are hacker related, and a lot of their owners are active right here in the community. Therefore, if their board gets compromised or they're made aware of a security flaw; they usually report it.

Anyway, I hope you come up with something to get a grip on the guys who rip your themes. You're an amazing designer, keep up the good work.
