This is Envato’s problem, you simply can’t wait 2 weeks to get a reply, that’s totally unacceptable. If tweeting gets me a faster reply, then sorry for messing up with your queue, but it’s your problem, not mine, I just need my reply. If I have an urgent problem, I obviously can’t wait 1 week or two to get a reply. This has been going for months now and the reply time is still unacceptable, I’m not sure how many requests do you guys handle daily, but honestly I have no idea how this situation wasn’t fixed not even after that many months, seeing that you have quite some people working as support.

I had tickets myself in the past, without tweeting them you wait at least one week for a reply. 24 hours is acceptable, but not one week. No customer that will receive a reply after one week will ever buy from this marketplace again… at least I wouldn’t.

Hello. Unfortunately that design won’t be accepted on ThemeForest, I’d suggest checking already-approved PSD’s to make yourself an idea about the quality here. Your looks like a mashup of multiple themes, it doesn’t have anything that stands out.. or that’s unique.. It also has problems with the margins, typography, etc.

The one-page niche is already extremely competitive, most of the themes having the same structure, you need to come up with really something awesome in order to be approved in that category.

... But Envato could do a much better job at representing all authors here by pricing themes more appropriately.

We should be asking for better pricing, not necessarily higher theme regulation, because as we all know that will never happen.

Exactly. This is what needs to be discussed more to avoid complex regulations / restrictions.

Everyone may remember there was a price increment tool introduced for Elite authors. That approach can resolve this issue upto certain extent, since many authors would have no problem raising the price upto 2 or 1.5 times a minimal functional item offers. Sadly the price increment tool discontinued – may be it deserves to be allowed again with some necessary restrictions if preferred.

No, that won’t fix it, it will only ruin it for those authors. If you put $100 as the price for your item, do you think someone will pay extra $40 or $45 just to get your theme instead of another 150-in-1 theme? Unless this is forced by Envato, manual adjustation by some users won’t make any difference

If it’s dynamically generated, I don’t think you’ll get rejected for that.

You won’t get hard rejected for html validation issues, you will get soft-rejected.. and that only if the code is really bad. The reason you got hard-rejected is because the design is not good enough.

And this is why it takes two damn weeks for a theme update to be reviewed. That theme has ZERO chances to be accepted, I don’t know why some people here say it has potential or that it can be improved and re-submitted here. No, that theme has absolutely nothing in common with web design and has absolutely zero chances of ever being approved on any marketplace.

The authors that develop themes in their free time don’t have that many support tickets, I’m doing all the support work by myself and the WP part as well so please don’t come and tell me there’s no time for support. Answering 5 e-mails per day takes 5 minutes at most. If you take the time to develop and sell stuff here, I’m sure you will have some time to support it as well. If you don’t sell that much, you won’t have much trouble with support at all.
