Vote here: Theme Madness 2011, Round 3

16 Comments

We’ve wrapped up Round 2 of Theme Madness, and there were definitely a few surprises in the results. Round 3 proves to be equally as exciting, with a number of well known theme shops facing off this time around. If I had one piece of advice for the shops competing this round, it would be to not underestimate your opponents. A blog post and/or extra tweet calling for votes might just help you out.

For the next 48 hours we will hold the voting for the following eight games:

All of the polls and instructions can be found just after the jump, so be sure to click through to have your voice heard. Voting will take place for the next 48 hours, and close 4pm on the 28th (Eastern Standard Time).

    • Adam, I was a bit surprised as well at first. Then I went to their forums, which are quite active. And the AppThemes folks blogged the competition, which we of course encourage ; )

      The good part is that this is all in good fun. Especially funny to me is that the two are actually working together!

      • I imagined it being WooThemes vs ThemeForest in the finals.

        I guess whoever gets the message out to the most customers will win. If ThemeForest promo’d this to their customers everybody would be toast X10 just because of the sheer volume.

    • Just like the NCAA tourney, underestimated teams can upset top seeds. 😉 We’ve got tons of respect for WooThemes so the victory is bittersweet.

  3. =) too bad Templamatic did not qualify for a competition =))) but our relaunch is planned for May 2011 and we are sure to attract some sweet designers who’ll make us famous =))) from this list MojoThemes is my favorite.

  4. Elegant Themes FTW. I’d love to see Theme Forest vs Elegant Themes in the final and Elegant wins. It’s time these big theme markets got put back in their place.

  6. Has anyone tried Mojo-Themes? I got their last bundle and it was amazing. Its worth checking out…

  8. I’m also a bit surprised by WooThemes losing. In my mind, the top contestants in this contest are WooThemes, Elegant Themes, Theme Forest and (from what I’ve read) Studio Press with a special honorable mention to Theme Hybrid for being a great FREE WordPress framework.

    Perhaps in future years you should invite the voters from experts in the industry. Each round you can have a different set of voters. Less democratic, but perhaps the results will be a bit more representative of the quality of the themes rather than the quality of the marketing.

    Either way – it’s a clever competition.
