It is not very likely that you will find a decent developer without some already approved decent PSD. Having a portfolio on GraphicRiver is fine, but there is a long way between business cards and web design. It is for your own good to have a good design before searching for a partner. This thread can attract some coders who will want to cooperate with you, but I doubt that many of them will be worth your time.
Safari for Windows is outdated and no longer developed so it is really a waste of time to test your pages in it. Set up a virtual machine with OSX for testing in Safari.
I don’t provide any options to change colors via admin in my latest theme. I am using SASS and user have to edit .scss file (basically just few variables) and manually convert it to .css (I have included tutorial in documentation). It is pretty easy and brand new color scheme can be created in just five minutes. Nobody complained about it so far, so I will probably stick with this solution for my next themes as well. Just keep it simple.
I think it is kinda cool but it just doesn’t look very 2014. I bet that it could have been a great template four years ago. Keep this concept and try to create something more fresh.
What do you mean by normal rejection? Was it soft rejected? If so, then you received list of issues from reviewer and then I do not understand why you have written this:
But leaving me to find why it was rejected is like giving a 2years old kid calculus to solve
@paschaldefreak…If a theme is hard rejected, in 99% it’s because of its design.
You are frustrated and I understand you. Of course that proper reviews will be cool, nobody is saying that’s a bad idea, but as I said before, the review process can easily take a week and I am sure that it will change to few weeks if not months if they be writting proper reviews for all rejected items. That would be crazy.
I have worked months on my first theme and it was of course rejected. Do you think that I was happy about it. No, but I haven’t give up, tried different approach and it worked. We both know that there isn’t better marketplace than Envato (in terms of possible earnings). You can try to go elsewhere, but you really think that item which was rejected here will earn you any decent money on some smaller marketplace?
Don’t be a pu**y, work harder, you will thank me later;)
Man, if you had spent time writing this article rather on working on your item, you will be little bit closer to the approval
This was discussed countless times. Reviewers WON’T provide detailed info for hard rejected items, because it would take a LOT of time. Reviewing times are way too long already. This is marketplace, not a tutorial website. Every author here faced rejections, especially when they tried to submit their first item. I totally understand how depressing the whole rejection can be, I’ve been there, trust me. But the only way is to work harder, keep trying different things and be critical to your work! Arguing about review process is a total waste of time.
