Original background is ugly (you have plenty of them so why not to use something more appealing?). Logo area looks a bit unprofessional. Other than this, looks not bad.

The background is a redesigned version of the html item that’s why I use it but I’ll reconsider it and your other inputs, thank you very much Denoizzed.

I’m no pro but i just took a quick look and this is what i noticed:

- Work on the logo more, make it stand out - Make sure all your icons are sized correctly, in the footer for example, some aren’t 100% sharp - Like GopalDasa mentioned, loose some content and pick some focus points. Right now there is too much going on if you ask me.

Good luck :)

Thanks for your reply, xtranetworks, I’ll consider them, cheers :)

Do not worry! TF has rejected the theme for Top Seller too! ( where one of their theme has sold over 3000 copies ).

I’m worrying because I pause it > work on somethings else > get back to it > it gets rejected > or I work only on it > it gets rejected :D with this item I learned WP stuff, my design ability improved, my eyes felt uncomfortable sometimes :) but they’re sharper now. I recreated this item for like 4 times. I insisted on to get it approved on this marketplace and it was close and even closer now:D it’s on my desk more than one year (of course it wasn’t the only thing I work on) I recreated it and polished but I see now I kept some elements from the old design like default home page slider (and thanks to Siddharth for his awesome reviewing process and awesome feedback) But with every item you get approved here, your design and coding skills improve and we also like that beside the sales (but I have to admit, rejections can also be very demotivating :) ). But yeah, even top authors get rejected sometimes, also a good point :)

Thanks doru, but I can’t get any more feedbacks there for my particular item.

Hi, speaking as owner of a soft rejected then “hard” rejected item’s owner and having no idea of what to fix, I would like to open discussion of paying for getting “what to fix, detailed” reviews. Sure there are sites for getting reviews from experts but it would be nicer if a service like that would be offered here and the payment can be charged after the item gets approved. I know once your eyes get sharper it’s easier to see issues in your design, but it can work for both authors and reviewers, for items are close to be approved. Ideas, gentlemen?

Hmm I am uploading this theme I think already the fourth time and the reviewer doesn’t provide any specific information about what he does not like. It’s just always the first two automaticly generated paragraphs (unique design, bla bla) and when asking for what he doesn’t like, the answer is just ‘yeah, there is nothing specific i could tell you’. Just the time before he just told me that submenu looks like the one from Classica (hey, look at this just passed item: http://themeforest.net/item/eptonic-beyond-the-limits/full_screen_preview/241366) He’s asking for more details, anyway the Theme walked trough some “redesigns” already and I am somehow desperate how to get it accepted. Would be glad to hear some more Critics from you… http://demo.dotwired.de/halo/ Greetings, .wired

Hmm you seem you don’t get the priceless answer:

“Hi, reviewers do not responsible for providing further feedback. Hope that helps.”

Why adding “hope that helps” to the grand final? If the intention was sarcasm, should it be more like “implied”? And no, apparently, it doesn’t help. :)

take a break every hour and focus on a distant area. maybe a mountai or a building. Really helped me.

Yes, that helps too man, thanks :)

Even a minor strain can have a big impact. A monitor an inch too far/close, brightness slightly too low/high, slight problem with vision, etc.

Not everyone is the same but personally I can sit in front of the computer for the whole day, 7 days a week, with glasses and my eyes don’t have issues at all. 24 inch monitor 2~ feet away, 80 brightness, decently but not excessively lit room with warm defused light that shoots up at the ceiling. Those regular non defused bulbs that shoot light downward bother me personally. A slightly open window during the day works great too, but again too much also bothers. Those are the main things for me I think.

Small breaks for your eyes or just to stretch are really healthy too!

Yes deiby, you’re right, even small minor factors play a big role, like some amount of brightness, room lightning etc And yeah, small breaks and stretch really helps! Thanks for sharing your thoughts :)
