My friend Jeff designed a few templates for hosting companys. We origninal were to make this for someone as a custom template but they never contacted us back. So in turn we would like to sell the template.
You will get:
PSD files for the site.
Your Company name and links added.
HTML, CCS, Optimized images.
Asking price is $160 please PM me if you are intrested.
Oh I hear you FS. My comment was directed at him too. How does he know the other person didn't copy yours, instead of the other way around, which is what he seems to be insinuating by posting that link.
Keep in mind I don't know any of you, and I (like you) found it interesting that he would post that in your sales thread, with no explanation.
Personally, I think one site inspires another, and so on, and so on, since the beginning of the web. Same with cars, computers, clothes, and anything else.
FatalSwitch, I'm not saying it's a direct rip. People should just be aware that there is another template exactly like it when buying yours.
"Of course sites have similaritys, I don't know which came first or not."
You don't know which came first? Either you used his design for guidance, or you didn't. His has been up for sale for the past six months. Yours is a custom one you guys built, very unlikely he would have seen it unless you are friends with him and showing him the design as you went along. Look at the overall shap and layout of the design. Almost exactly the same except for the footer. Next, look at the server to the right of the menu, wih the circle behind it. That is way too much for coincidence. He has a date of september on his, and december on yours, also another clue.
Mind I also say you are using the generic logos that come with each template monster design, and you are using them as icons in your menu. This is also illegal/something you are not allowed to do.
I don't mind that you are trying to sell a design here. I just dont believe in similarites so vast and blatant, that one design looks exactly like another. I am just giving a fair warning.
I know for a fact that you know yours isn't the original, as we've talked about the design previously. Please don't try to pass this off as your own; it won't work. Copying multiple designs and combining them into one won't change the fact that it is a direct rip.
It's what that Jeff does all the way. I've seen multiple designs of him, almost exactly as one template. Before I knew sites like these, I always thought he was creative and original. But that changed.
