I get that $300 from one place means nothing. It was more to say the theme is undervalued, much like other comprehensive themes. It was more to start the dialog, because the pricing is too low for specific niche themes. Themes like Avada, Enfold, X, etc. are general purpose themes and sell to the masses, whereas a hosting theme has a much more limited market. This means far less money over the long-term, if the price is treated as the same.
I said what I did to start a dialog that we need to be willing to pay more and theme developers should charge more for themes like this. I like long-term solutions, which means we look out for each other. Knowing that $60-70 is far less than the value of the theme to me, I wanted to publicly state that and had hoped maybe, just maybe I would find some support, and maybe we could start to make some change that would benefit the developers and help prevent situations like this. Yes, we may not know the reason for the developer going away, but if we never ask the questions or try to make things change, then we are just as much at fault when a situation like this does happen.
Communication is everything. I was just trying to start some.
Should have figured it would be taken negatively.
