Hi, I have a question.

The $400 price is for the first 10 submitted and approved items or the first 10 best items?

Thanks!

Sorry for the confusion, I’ve updated the post to reflect clearly that it is for the “Best 10”

The link at the top of your post is incorrectly formatted causing the official website not to load.

Good catch! All fixed :)

This particular Envato’s Most Wanted is now over. We typically wait a week to make sure any held/resubmitted items are processed before establishing the full set of winners. We’ll then announce all the winners and winners will receive their prizes in about 3-4 weeks from today (please do not contact us about status of prizes).

If you have an item in the review queue please message me to let me know, don’t worry about adding a link to this thread.

Hi all,

I have a problem with review of a submitted item that got rejection. I know this experience of rejection complains are around everywhere, but this time is very critical for me as i may leave this place depending on this issue when i tried to verify the quality of the design in general and with the quality of the currently approved category items!!

Here it is: http://unbouncepages.com/the-camera-apps/

As it’s known, the review message was common for these cases as following:

“The overall quality of your submission does not meet our aesthetic and technical requirements and will need to be improved before being resubmitted. Unfortunately we’re not able to provide more specific feedback for your submission at this time.

Please consider taking some time to familiarize yourself with our current library and quality levels of popular items before resubmitting.”

I will be thankful if i got some indications from participators here on this item. In addition, i will submit i again as it’s. If i didn’t get a satisfied and logical reply, 100% i will leave!

Shortly, i’m not a newbie!

We have a dedicated forum for this type of request. Please don’t post questions concerning rejections here.

Instead, ask for feedback in this thread: http://themeforest.net/forums/topic/item-discussion/26

Envato team – My item got rejected because of a navigation bar.

Why? The navigation bar is for quick navigation too anchors on the page. If a customer don’t need it then he can simply remove it – Navigation bars are handy especially in long pages…

What should I do?

My template: http://unbouncepages.com/artec-multi-template-homepage/

Please address all other issues with the template and kindly let the reviewer know that Josh has said that navigation that works with anchors is permitted.

Thanks!
