When you dream about sales
We’re sorry, your item “Envato Forums” has not been approved for sale on ThemeForest. This is the reason given by our item inspector:
This File Did Not Meet Our Criteria
Thanks so much for taking the time to submit this template. Unfortunately, due to our high standards, your template has been declined.
Your template’s design does not meet our quality standards at this time and will need significant improvements before it will be ready to be reviewed again. You might consider taking a look at some of our popular premium items to get a better idea for the quality level of graphics, typography and general design that we require for approval.
At this stage in the design I am, unfortunately, not able to provide more specific feedback other than what I’ve stated above (the design needs overall, general improvements). With further improvements I may be able to provide more specific feedback.
If you’re not sure where to begin improving your template from here, you might consider seeking feedback via our forums or sites such as http://Dribbble.com, http://ConceptFeedback.com or http://Forrst.com. These are all fantastic resources to seek feedback from fantastic designers.
Thanks so much for your submission and I hope you continue submitting more items in the future.The padding removal is a bit unattractive, if I do say so myself.
This made my day
I also think that the sidebar is awful … they should change the whole UI and adopt a modern design
Something like this would be awesome:
Happy Holidays too! The video is really nice and it’s really good to see such an happy team! Envato must be the best company to work ever
