You should start by sharing your portfolio of designs. Idea of creating something from the scratch is ok (although having an approved PSD is much easier way). No experienced developer will consider working with you without seeing your level of skill.

Sorry but there is exactly zero originality in your design. I would suggest you to start from scratch and pick some niche.

I didn’t checked your code, but the thing is that if you don’t have a good design, reviewers won’t be checking your code either. Getting inspiration from other designs is ok, you just need to know where are the boundaries between inspiraton and stealing.

Why would anybody buy your theme, if he can buy an original which is 100 times better? You either have skills to push your design here or not. If not, then try to team up with a good designer or work harder on your skills. If you don’t have a patience of working for months (or even years) till you reach a required level, then I am afraid ThemeForest is not for you.

I’ve replied to your thread 7 days ago. No offense but you will need to spend MUCH more time than just a week on your skills to get to ThemeForest level. Forget about this design, it has absolutely no chance of being approved.

  1. Study other design here or on Behance, Dribbble, etc…
  2. Start a new design from the scratch and try to push your limits.
  3. Repeat till you get something which will be approved.

Even after reading through every comment on this thread I believe a change was needed. Stagnating and resting on our laurels won’t make us the “The Best, Finest, #1, Leading, Most Amazingest”.

You are missing the point here. Nobody (or at least not majority of members) said that previous design was something perfect and it shouldn’t be changed. Our problem is that this is change for the worse. Of course that stagnation will kill Envato, but such bad decision as making this “redesign” will kill it even faster.

BTW, I am pretty sure that if you do a contest on “making the Envato redesign just by changing the CSS” you will get a LOT of much better results from talented authors here within one month. Any reason why don’t try something like this?

And don’t forget to create a pointless survey about his change.

Do you even tested it for more than 30min or you just changed the CSS one morning and it’s done? It’s really hurting eyes. “Great” way to increase sales…

Try to search for game templates/themes here on ThemeForest and you will see that non of those items are using official game artworks/screenshots. You should search for example on DevianArt for talened guys who are drawing such artworks and ask them for permission. You just won’t get high quality gaming images just like that for free and without license restrictions (at least I don’t know about source of such images).
