Where’s the good news? The progress bar is gone and now all we get is “Queued for review”.
As for new, resubmission, disabled, update, that’s nothing new, updates were approved faster even before.
For me the progress bar helped quite a bit, at least I had an idea on when it will be approved. Now it just says that it’s under review and that’s all. Nothing useful. It just says the same thing twice(you already know that it’s under review. What I’m interested is: how many themes are before me, how many themes will, estimately, be reviewed before my theme goes in… stuff like that.. not statuses. We all know the themes are under review, if they’re not approved or rejected.
Basically you removed the progress bar and added nothing else in return. Why writing 10 full paragraphs with useless stuff when you could’ve wrote everything in one paragraph? “Hello, we have decided to remove the progress bar and, instead, add the status of the item in the title(new, resubmission, update, disabled resubmission). Also there’s a new status “Special circumstances” for authors that upload lots of files.”
This is a bad joke. It’s now become the third price increase in theme forrest. And only a small part of the price increase will also arrive with the authors, because theme forrest just the neck can not get enough … I think in a year or two then they cost $ 100 a simple theme. Put 6 !! !!
Indeed, I think the correct price for a theme should be reduced to somewhere around $20. Or even $15, to be competitive. Do you agree?
Envato doesn’t own any file here, they’re just selling them, they don’t own anything. You’re the one that owns your files, you need to provide permission to someone if they want to convert your html template into wp and sell it here
I’m on vacation right now and I just answer e-mails once or twice a day(when I’m not away and if possible). If not, I try to answer them once a day.. if this one doesn’t work either(i’m away all day or something), I answer it when I can.
I wrote a message on my profile and on the best selling themes and that’s it, most customers understand

Take your PC and throw it from 9th floor. Don’t even try to open Photoshop after.
Now a days there is so many frameworks, as for example from Designmodo, buy Developer licence, learn how spacings done, fonts theory, check trendy accepted PSD themes. Seems to me you didn’t even did that. Most of authors here are at least 5 years in this industry, and they even never had themes like that.
With templates like that sent to review, normal themes are longer in moderation queue. Sad.Even more sad, there is even nothing to comment to improve in you file. Of course I’ve to add, 1 PSD page is not enough.
I’m sure you were born with all your design “skills” overnight. Man, you have serious problems of communicating, have you tried talking to someone about this? You don’t see people with over $250k, $1M writing trashy stuff about bad designs and here come you, that barely have two WordPress themes, thinking you’re the damn thing here.
I saw that you do the same thing most of the time, on forums, with customers, you really need to talk to someone about your problem. Most of your topics and messages you leave on the forum deserve the same message you posted here, yet nobody’s writing that to you.
Take a breath, go out and really, really, stop opening the forums. For real.
You should really learn something from charlie or other members that try to help here.
ontopic: That design is, indeed, far off the standards here, I’d suggest reading some tutorials about spacing, colors, typography and checking the already-approved library of PSD designs
