I gave a look in your theme and I can say for sure your theme looks like very professional, I’m also asking myself the same question.
it seems that there is a strong resistance to beginners in TF, I see multiple average items from elite authors being approved, while other items of beginners authors being hard rejected, the worst part of the approval process in my opinion is the fact we do not get any feedback from the reviewers this is very frustrating, they only talk about minimum requirements, but they don’t give us the chance to know about these minimum requirements.
To become an approved author here is much more complicated than I thought, you begin working on your project spends months in it with no guarantee that it will be approved because the approval process remains a mystery and no one understands what are the criteria taken into account. I could be wrong this is just my opinion.
@2035Themes I saw your sscreenshot yes it looks like the slider container is left aligned I will fix that, thank you for your feedback.
@DotRex yes mate, this is not good
@manuelvega thank you for your feedback, I think there’s no way for this template, maybe a whole new version.
Hi guys here I am again to show you my second rejected template, after put so much effort in this project I got this item rejected this is my second trial, my first web template was rejected, so I tried a new one.
This time I converted an approved psd design, thus I thought I could get this approved, but it didn’t happen, this is the template I am talking about: http://plugthem.cpweb0048.servidorwebfacil.com/webtemplates/quiry/preview/ any feedback would be truly accepeted so I can improve my work.
From the time I got my first template rejected until today I didn’t understand ‘the deep mistery’ behind TF approval process, it seems If I am an ‘elite author’ almost anything is approved, but begginers like me has to do the ultra power functional and beautiful template, I see many average work being approved other good works are not approved.
I got a hard rejection, the review team just says my template didn’t meet the minimum requirements for quality and/or marketplace policies, but they don’t let us know these ‘minimum requirements’, so what do you think guys? Please gve some feedback if you can, and this way I will improved my work, this is very frustrating but I will not give up.
This is the message from review team:
Unfortunately your submission Quiry Multipurpose Responsive HTML Template isn’t ready for ThemeForest and cannot be resubmitted as it did not meet our minimum requirements for quality and/or marketplace policies. In order for submissions to be considered for sale they must be of high aesthetic and technical quality, unique to our library and cannot be in violation of Envato’s policies. Please see our Knowledgebase for more information: http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/List
Our Review team also provided these comments:
We understand this has been approved in PSD Templates, however this design is from 2012 and since then we’ve raised our design quality standards.
Your item does not provide the necessary design quality for this category. As higher quality items become available in the marketplace, approval requirements will increase to maintain appropriate marketplace quality.While I’d be able to provide feedback as to how to get this approved, I can only do after it has crossed a certain threshold, quality wise. I’m sorry to say this isn’t there y
Just to correct the title of this topic: “LOOKING FOR PSD AUTHORS…”
Hi, I’m looking for an approved PSD author to make a partneship, we can work together with a profit rate of 50/50. What I have in mind is the following:
- I convert your approved PSD file into a fully functional and responsive website (at the moment just static HTML website, at a near future I can include WP themes into the partneship). - Your PSD sales is only yours, I only profite from my code work. - You will profit from your design in PSD sure you have =), and in the HTML version.
What am I doing this? This was a way I found to be an author here and help those without skills to profite from your designs. If you think this is the right thing for you, reply this topic or send me an email on my profile page. Thanks in advance.
@NeutrinoTeam – Thank you for your kind words, feedback like this estimulates me to keep trying and never give up.
@wpminima – Thanks mate! I will work around to get this approved.
@PersianArt – Many thanks to you, your list give me some ideas to polite it a little more and trying it to be approved.
@CodingJack – Hi mate, thank you, your suggestions are very valuable to me, I will do that.
@WPScientist – It’s true, as the time goes by it is becoming hard to be approved here, the level is raising and we need to walk according these requirements.
— Anyway, I’m very happy for the feedback here, the community is nicer than I expected, you encouraged me to not give up and keep trying. Thank you everybody!
I give thank for everyone who expressed your opinion here.
“It is a full copy paste item”
I understand your opinion but I don’t agree with it, there’s not full copy paste item, if it is so, most items here is full copy past item, most item are similiar. Is a trend in web developtment, it is a trend in computer in some general form, windows has icon, mac has icon, linux has icon almost identical just to cite as an example, but as I did before I understand your opinion.
Hi, after almost two years here on theme forest, I released my first template, for three months I dedicate myself to it, and today I received the always frustrating reply “your item was rejected”. I understand the marketplace has its quality guidelines, but I see many templates and themes around being approved in most times with a design similar to mine, but It’s ok, it estimulates me to do my best to enter in the community. You guys, do you have similiar experience? What have you done to work around this and be approved? I will past what I receive and a link to my theme I would like to receive feedback to improve it, if you can help me this way I would be glad. Thank you.
Unfortunately your submission Simple – Multipurpose Web Template isn’t quite ready for ThemeForest and requires significant improvements and changes before it can be resubmitted and reconsidered.
Additionally, we have some extra feedback for you:
Your template does not provide a unique enough design with the necessary design quality, features and options to compete in the marketplace at this time. As higher quality templates become available in the marketplace, approval requirements will increase to maintain appropriate marketplace quality.
You might consider improving your design with more unique features and graphics in order for it to stand out among other marketplace items. However, a unique design will be a key factor for approval.
I know it’s frustrating to be rejected citing uniqueness but recently, we’ve gotten a large number of template with the same overall features and presentation and we have to draw the line somewhere.However, we do accept themes with similar structure but in condition it provides better quality in terms of aesthetic or features
