I do not understand, I got soft rejected again for this: Please remove these images. http://envato.d.pr/w52P/3ITkaWSQ
Authors are not allowed to use images of games, movies, etc in their item preview.
Oh really now? http://themeforest.net/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&term=Gaming+PSD They all do…
This is what I’m confused about. Is the reviewer just talking about the the THEME PREVIEW. The 590×300px image? Or are they talking about every single screenshot of the whole item?
I’ve removed the backgrounds and included a new generic one that I designed from scratch – If I get denied agian for something different, I’m going to rage lol.
Every time I submit for a review, I get something different where the reviewer(s) could of simply told me all of the issues in one sitting and I could of fixed them all in one sitting and in under 5minutes.
Instead, I have to play musical file uploads and do a simple delete of a file, wait 3 days to get another soft reject, to rename something, to reupload and then get soft rejected for something that I thought I fixed from a previouis reject… months ago after THAT reject never told me about the same thing.
I’m going insane… lol
Thanks for the responses.
Even in the screenshots? Has come some other gaming designs use characters in their themes? Though they aren’t PSD’s, they still have characters in the design and those are accepted. This is why i’m confused and frustrated. They say one thing, but don’t specify to what it applies to.
I’ll just remove it from every single image and upload new screenshots thought eh review told me to not include any more… so w/e lol.
So our first release keeps getting soft rejected for nearly the same reason but I’m not sure what exactly we need to change or what is and is not allowed as far as licensing goes.
What is the ‘preview image’? Is it the attached screenshots? Or is it THE preview image like this one http://imgur.com/ILDx3iz ?
We were just soft rejected according to this below, and I assume it’s just the image I listed above’s gaming background:
1) No famous people or screenshots from Movies, TV Series, Video games, CD covers or anything similar that might be infringing on any copyrights are acceptable. Please remove them from the preview image.
The reviewer did not mention anything about the preview IMAGES, just the preview “image” – So would that same background be allowed in our screenshots for the theme’s preview?Here is one of my example screenshots of the design: http://imgur.com/BckfWy4
Out of the 3ish soft rejects, they have never mentioned the gaming backgrounds in the screenshots that we’ve attached, so I assume that’s fine.
Can you guys please clear up my confusion.
Nevermind. I think I understand what the reviewer is saying, while I don’t exactly agree with some of the changes, I understand them and will edit accordingly.
So basically, the reviewer wants it to be consistent like this?: http://prntscr.com/30gv2d
Easy enough to change, instead of 960px grid, I’ll use a 980px. I thought about redesigning it to 1200px and just give it overall more, but that would require redesiging (and recoding) every page in the PSD. But it was just soft rejected, so I don’t think I need to change a whole lot I assume.
As for the typography, it was using Google Fonts, that’s one of the selling points for the theme, we were going to give them the ability to easily select which font they want to use. I guess, I’ll advertise that in the PSD itself and show different screenshots of the different font.
I’m still not sure what visual hierarchy is… I mean I know what it is, but I don’t see how it’s affecting the design.
Thanks everyone, I’m still looking for as much advice as possible, this is my first release and hopefully once I get over this hump, everything will be great.
Which edge? There are 4 edges. All of which the sides are the same, I used a 960 grid and everything was aligned to the grid appropriately. So I’m not sure if that will change anything… it might not look like that, but it is aligned.
I wish they would point out these issues a little bit vs’s telling me what they just don’t like.
Anyone else willing to chime in here? Could it be just one of the PSD’s like on the article or gallery for example vs’s the index or forum?
Is anyone willing to offer up some more critiques? If an elite author is willing to chime in and chat with me on Skype a little bit, I’d be more then happy to throw some $ your way.
Thank you for the comment, but what do you mean by ‘more little’? that threw me off a little bit.
Hey everyone. I submitted a PSD a while back and was soft rejected for something to deal with licensing (had an image in the background that they didn’t enjoy I believe and it’s been a while since I resubmitted. Anyways, I resubmitted with the changes and had a different reviewer soft reject it for something different.
Here is what they said:
Reason: The template has some really nice details, unfortunately the main problem here is the spacing, visual hierarchy and typography.”
Would you all be so kind to go over what could be enhanced in the theme? I’ve actually already have this all coded up in HTML/CSS with some cool options to choose backgrounds, fonts and colors since the design is all CSS based minus a the images and a few icons.
Where can I improve on the design? What is “visual hierarchy” and where could I improve on the spacing?
