I already contacted them , just wanted to talk about that here and get your ideas. I know my comments sounds like I am mad , but I am really not. Maybe it is because i’m french and I can’t cleary say what I think :)

Thanks for explaining about not pointing other’s people work , I will edit my previous post.

Excellent question about why I post PSD that are not my best work .. humm maybe I’m just to impatient I think .. My design never take me more than 2-3 hours to do .. (COFFEE theme took me 3 hours) After that , I get bored .. so If there is nothing good after that time .. I submit it ..

It’s probably not a good thing for me and I’m trying to stop doing that .. Maybe I should start multiple design at the same time to work on different design every day.

Maybe not the Hosting one .. he would have said it .. but that’s ok I didn’t like it and I agree that it wasn’t really good… I’m re-working on the Portfolio.

Thanks ,

Why can’t I point other’s theme ? I think you see probleme where there are not.

And I know what Themeforest is looking for , I have 1 PSD approved.

I’m just saying that the approval process should be revise.

Nice design , altough there is some flaws.

You need a Login button.

There is too much info for an home page and nothing stand out so there is no focus.

You have to set a hierarchy of important thing to focus the user’s attention because like it is now , nobody will read the content.

Header + Footer are really good .. re-work the content before submitting it , I think it’s gonna be rejected but this is my opinion ..

Make some item stand out more than other , make it tight. Keep only 1-2 services (there is a services page for long info like that) and maybe just keep 1 testimonials with an option to read more.

Tell me what you think ;)

Hi all ,

First of all , I tought it was funny when people complain about getting rejected in the PSD but now … I understand :) I got 2 theme rejected at the same time lol

This is my first theme :

http://www.ddwebstudios.com/uploads/ddsolutions/1_homepage.jpg http://www.ddwebstudios.com/uploads/ddsolutions/2_about.jpg http://www.ddwebstudios.com/uploads/ddsolutions/3_hosting.jpg http://www.ddwebstudios.com/uploads/ddsolutions/4_contact.jpg

For this one .. I understand .. It wasnt 100% my best ..

Here is the second theme rejected :

http://www.ddwebstudios.com/uploads/fdlr/1_homepage.jpg http://www.ddwebstudios.com/uploads/fdlr/2_portfolio.jpg http://www.ddwebstudios.com/uploads/fdlr/3_about.jpg http://www.ddwebstudios.com/uploads/fdlr/4_contact.jpg

Agains not my best , but they told me that they ’’BELEIVE’’ it would be accepted in HTML if converted.

Getting rejected is not a problem for me at all, it give me an opportunity to level up my game and give the best of me.

I have 2 provlem regarding this situation. 1st .. the message they left me for the second theme :

This item is not what we’re looking for the site in terms of aesthetic. However, I believe it will be approved under site template if you are going to convert this.

Why is it so unclear ? .. Is it good enough , or is it not ? .. I don’t care if it’s not , i’ll try something else , but if I code it and then they refuse it , hmm then I’m gonna be pissed off.

The other problem I have is that I tried a new style .. there is too much ’’clean’’ portfolio out there .. a good exemple is these 2 theme :

http://themeforest.net/item/minim/27429

http://themeforest.net/item/design-and-creative-and-corporate-design/27526

They are both really good .. but they are REALLY similar. Why accept 2 theme almost identical in 2 days ? .. I think there is some really good improvement to be done there.

Also , here is a solution I propose to Themeforest :

The approval should be separate in 2 phases. First you upload all your screenshot and then you receive an approval on the ’’design only’’ so after that , you send all your files with it and you are done. If you are rejected .. you go to work , change some things .. and then resubmit the screenshot only .. not all the files + description + reviewers comments etc etc .. that is wayyyy too long and we all know that the approval services is really slow , so is the support services.

Don’t get me wrong here , I love themeforest and I know this job is not easy for them , but there is always place for getting better.

Oh and you can give your comments on my ’’approved’’ PSD :P

(I am french so sorry for my bad english)

I am totally against the idea of deleting PSDs.

PSDs section have his own market. This is a buisness here and you should be focusing on your exposure. Do you think CocaCola say : Oh that is way to much exposure , we are gonna let Pepsi take our place , they deserve it. This is nonsense.

Here is a scenario : Someone come here just to get some inspiration for his own site. He doesnt go to HTML section because he just want to see design.

He see your design in PSD and love it so much that he want it , but he want it coded , he buy your HTML version. +1 sale for you.

The market is hard , you have to get all your chances on your side.

That was my 2 cent
