I would suggest trying with the HTML template. You will have more chances for approval. I like the way it looks, btw :)

Three things I disliked immediately:
  1. Poor color choice – gradients look very outdated, and the blue gradient used as a main theme is unpleasant to the eyes
  2. Typography could use a rework – it looks good in some parts, but some parts like a main menu should be somewhat styled up
  3. In your portfolio, why do you load such a huge pictures that are then resized to small thumbs (I am talking about a multiple columns layout) – it just takes up from loading time

I agree. I don’t like the blue color, it’s too dark for my taste. Also, as OriginalEXE pointed out – some of the gradients look outdated.

Well it needs more work in the overall styling. First of all, the background is too intense. Maybe use a slightly lighter pattern. Also, pay attention to typography, it needs more work as well.

And keep practicing, you’ll get approved eventually.

Hi, i’ve been searching flickr last week or two, and i often get the message Flickr has the hiccups. We’re looking into the problem right now. Almost every time i search through it, i receive at least once this message.

I haven’t noticed that before? When are they planning to resolve this issue?

Most importantly, am I the only one receiving this message so often?

Check this, My resolution 1920×1080 Also you must polish more this template.

Holy crap o.O My screen is 1440 px wide, and i haven’t tested it on wider screens, so i had no idea about this. No wonder we got rejected.

Any more thoughts, in terms of overall design and aesthetics?

Hi there. Our template got rejected with a standard hard reject message: ‘does not meet our minimal technical standards’ etc…

First of all, i want to get this of my chest: It would be so much better if they would write at least one ‘custom’ sentence, even if it’s ‘this is awful’, but at least something human. If reviewers can spare a few minutes (hours perhaps) testing the template, they could at least spare a few minutes more to type a short sentence explaining why was it rejected. Just my two cents.

Anyway, you can check our theme here. As you can see, it’s a one page HTML template, with parallax. Any feedback on it is welcome :)
