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.
Redux is pretty specific type of plugin. I think that this is good example of the “exception to the rule”. I have also rather embedded Redux into my latest WP theme instead going TGMPA way as I think it is more safe. What if they will release a new version of Redux in the future which will break your theme? Theme options framework is crucial for theme to work properly, you should always update it manually via your theme updates.
You can download the latest version of any purchased item from your account / downloads. No need to contact support for that.
The funny thing is that it is nowhere near the quality of the final image in that tutorial
1.) Self promotion is not allowed (even that you just not meant it like self-promotion)
2.) Nobody sane would be downloading unknown .zip files from the internet
I do believe that you had only good intentions with your post, but you know the saying: the road to hell is paved with a good intentions:)
I guess that’s because yesterday’s Chrome update (it finally supports font antialiasing).
That’s funny because I honestly think that you were pretty close to be accepted.
You are right about reviewing/support times being WAAY too long, but just imagine that rejected items whould receive a non-generic message with a real feedback. The revieving process would be prolonged to at least month! You may feel disappointed or even insulted by all your rejections, but please keep in mind that everybody here started just like that. It is about inner strength of individual. You either have it and will keep trying, or you give up. Nothing good in life comes without hard work, discipline and dedication. If you need to be led by the hand to learn how to earn money here, then obviously, this marketplace is not for you.
You are doing a great job in using this forum so far. Keep it up!
Design and visual appealing is very subjective of course. I am pretty sure that you are not the only one who will find your design better than this other design. But I am also pretty sure that majority of TF buyers will find this other design more appealing.
I am little bit offended by your statement about my portfolio, but I will move on:) Except last two items, my items are more than one year old so yeah, they feel bit outdated even to me (but 5-7 years is a little bit exxagerrated).
By learning from your rejection I didn’t mean to learn from rejection message, of course that it is just a generic text, but I mean to take a fresh look at your item. Compare it to popular items on TF or on some design showcase portals.
