Hello everyone, I’m working on coming soon theme.

Demo images: http://www.soonny.librax.net/images.png

Is typography good? Any suggestions?

Thanks for the help!

Sorry to tell you, but this is not going to be accepted.

You have too wild font and too aggressive colour combo.

Also theres in not much styling done. Just rectangles with some shadows. You need to work on that much more.

Wish you luck.

We have made a withdrawal in the ned of last month via PAYPAL. But now it’s still in processing, What’s up?

I had my money already transfered to my bank account in European Union. So money were sent on time – probably some problem on Paypal / Envato side…better contact them.

Hey Martina!

Problem with your design is in fact that it is too simple. It’s minimalistic, but not really – it looks a little unfinished.

My advice to you – best way to learn is to look at work of more skilled people here at TF.

Wish you good luck and all the best :)

Nech sa darĂ­ krajanka ;-)

Use more variations of grey on different types of texts (headings and pragraphs) Try to use some other color combination. This blue does not look that good when paired with white and grey combo. Something more subtle not so aggresive. Also there is so many free unused white space. Think about that may be?

Otherwise quite decent alternative to Jarvis, man ;-)

You will not get approved with this template because you just copied other authors idea that is already in the category.

This is not the way to succeed, if you want my opinion on the matter.

Try to come up with something original. Noone forces you to discover everything from scratch, but you should not just bluntly take other people’s work and tag it with your name. In a long run, that just hurts your name.

So they don’t spare even an Elite Author.

Well, I guess answer will be same as in my case: They already have plenty of one page themeslike yours and others.

They require some kind of uniquenesss and originality. What was great 6 months ago or so, is now obsolete.

I like your theme – I also liked your coming soon page that was used as basis for this template. It just isn’t enough for them. Trends have shifted other way and you’re left behind.

To be honest, I don’t have any idea what is currently “in”, but it’s not this anymore. Too bad noone told us or customers that. :x

Yeah, I kinda stated that in the first initial comment. I know I can’t do anything about it. I don’t even want to. I will move on and work on something completely new.

I just wanted to let others know, that it sometimes isn’t fair. That there are others like them out there, who have been rejected.

But I’m not sure about that freebie stuff. May be I will do that. It would definitely be motivation or me to finally work on my own webpage – that generic WP template is getting more and more anoying :D

So thanks for that – valuable advice – and even for that blunt statement about lack of originality ;-) After all, feedback is for moving us forward, not scratching belly of our EGOs :)

I am sorry about what happened to you. Wish you luck and may be they will understand the situation.

How do you ask for second reviewer?

Hey guys,

so I had a break during summer and did not create any template. I am back though. With a new template – ready and happy to get back into marketplace.

I uploaded my new coming soon page at night only to wake for the rejection info. I think my template is good enough to be accepted, so I did not give up and uploaded it second time with information about credits to images and plugin.

Information about my design not being unique enough and stuff about drawing line somewhere since there is lot of similar templates was added this time.

OK, I get it – my template is not a one of a kind masterpiece original idea. So I was okey with rejection – not even very angry. I kinda understood the point so far and was content with it.

But then I opened new coming soon templates and I see template with same style as newest item. I was furious. It strikes me as kinda hypocrytical to say that “they have to draw line” and then accept same type of template from different author.

I don’t blame author of course – it’s not his/her fault that their item was accepted and mine not. But it is kinda unfair to me from reviewer and themeforest, to take mine chance to make a sale.

Even more when my item provided 3 versions of template based on complexity – small, medium and large version.

So what do you think about this and what do you say about my template?

All ideas are welcome. I know I won’t change their mind (probably). I just need to vent my anger somehow.
