Restored 316 Designs / Scam
Lauren Gaige of Restored 316 Designs has a long history of attacking other people who make genesis child themes because she's not very talented and is evidently quite jealous of people with more talent than her. Lauren likes to try and kill off the competition because she's not smart enough to get a real job.
Lauren created ALL of her themes by using the genesis theme as a base. What does that mean? That means ALL of Lauren's themes are stolen, a direct rip of the genesis theme so to speak. MANY designers have done this and it's fine because the genesis theme is filed under the GNU - General Public License meaning that anyone can add or remove from the template and resell it as their own.
However, Lauren has a habit of copying her designs from other web designers including Lovely Confetti and PSW. Then she tries to turn it around and claim everyone is copying her when her wordpress themes were stolen to begin with. As if we needed any more proof that Lauren is a very sad, bitter and vengeful individual, right? Just google her. You'll find she's done this to many designers in the past.
Lauren, you need to get over yourself. You're not a special snowflake. Your designs are not original. You stole your design code from the genesis theme then copied design ideas from actual talented web designers across the web. You've been doing this since 2009 when you deleted "My Restored Life" after being caught reselling stolen wordpress themes. I see you still haven't moved on or changed your ways.
Lauren Gaige is not talented. She is not special. She is not a nice person. She's a thief and a bully who simply cannot bring herself to learn how to code and would rather resell someone else's code then attack people who have actual design talent and a college/university degree to back their talent up.
In closing, Lauren Gaige of Restored 316 Designs is a very pathetic, jealous, bitter, vengeful and little person who steals her wordpress themes and bullies other web designers. Stay as far away from her as possible. Her cheap rip off designs aren't worth $5 let alone the $50 she charges for them. The internet is full of talented web designers who will sell you a beautiful and functional template. Lauren? Not so much. Avoid Restored 316 Designs and it's childish owner like the plague. You won't regret it!
