our last item just got a soft reject.
Any ideas on how to improve the theme?
This is the generic response:
Unfortunately your submission Elite – Multi-Purpose & One Page Theme isn’t quite ready for ThemeForest. Here’s some feedback from our Review team on why it couldn’t be accepted.
Overall, this is a good concept but there are a couple issues here:
We already have a number of submissions with the same overall design and concept and we have to draw the line somewhere.
I think we’re reached a point of saturation. At this point, we’re only looking for unique variations of this design: for another one to be approved it would have to have a couple of unique touches and features that differentiate it from what’s already available and definitely be of higher quality.
Minimal templates can be clean and simple when you manage to handle the white space and details to provide a simple but yet unique template. But if you can’t, it will look like an incomplete template – blank template.
In this case, the submitted template is more like a ‘framework’ than a full fledged design. If you’re going with minimalism, you need to make sure all the little details check out.
that’s a too much space in mega menu links, in some places seems like copyright issue, the images that you are using & you are copying the design without the permission of real seller… but you did hard work… Good Luck for near future
What? I’ve bought those images on PhotoDune
I read that the reviewers usually check the link and if the design is not up to par they automatically reject the theme.
So really it does not take a long time to have a look.
I checked your theme in about 8 seconds and it did not interest me. Nothing special or unique about it. There are 1000s of themes like this with the same layout, animation and so on.
People want to see something unique that you offer with your file.
Cheers and good luck.Lester
This would be true in a beautiful world. The reality is that all the new themes that are coming out have the same animations and effects, then we must reject them all?
Just a note, i don’t think 3 page visited for a session of 7 seconds is enough to judge a theme.
Hello guys, we’re very suprised to get a rejected for our new theme: FLEX.
“Your item does not provide the necessary design quality for this category. As higher quality items become available in the marketplace, approval requirements will increase to maintain appropriate marketplace quality.
While I’d be able to provide feedback as to how to get this approved, I can only do after it has crossed a certain threshold, quality wise. I’m sorry to say this isn’t there yet.”
Any suggestion will’be appreciated.
