Thanks virtuti for the help :). Did not really think about if someone wanted to add additional links to the site. Ill take a further look at the PSD section regarding one page templates to get an idea of how its supposed to look.

Any chance it could be approved as a Wordpress or html template? Eventually I wanted to make it as a Wordpress and HTML template so I am just curious.

Im currently working on it and I only have the home and portfolio pages done (still working on the about page) so based on some more research Ill go back and add more pages. I just wanted to see if I was on the right path before I get to deep into the project.

I am guessing submit a support ticket or change the name of your theme

Another theme that I have thought about….wondering if it would make the cut. Any thoughts?

Just a small little detail but I noticed in the footer that reserved was spelled with a “z” instead of an “s”

I am not quite sold on the typeface you chose for your headlines.

Spacing still needs adjustment on the about us page. Two of your images are super close to the text while the image at the very bottom has a huge amount of space compared to the others.

The biggest problem I see however is your services page in which you include the sortable javascript function. Its really jumpy as it switches from one tab to the other and it collides with the footer as it transitions.

Hope this helps! :) (oh and if you dont mind I would really like some insight on my rejected template as well: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/need-feedback-for-rejected-template/67892 Thanks!).

This is what the Reviewer sent me:

We’re sorry, your item Circular PSD Template has not been approved for sale on ThemeForest. This is the reason given by our item inspector:

Unfortunately your submission doesn’t meet our current minimum technical quality requirements for the category it was submitted to. Please consider taking some time to familiarize yourself with our current library and quality levels of popular items before resubmitting.

I have no idea what the reviewer was talking about, so any help is appreciated.

Here are the links to my file:

Thanks in advanced :)

just went to try to validate your site you have 50+ errors and warnings on each page :/ (used the w3c validator with the document checked as HTML 4 .0 Strict on HTML5 its like 30 or so per page)

as far as the site being responsive it works well on my end

When your analyzing websites for design inspiration do not limit yourself to just Themeforest. I agree that Themeforest has some beautiful designs (alongs side not so great ones). But we should not just look at stuff on here or other template sites. Yes that is what we are creating, but that does not mean it should have to look like a template. That is what yours looks like, a basic template…which is ok I guess if your targeting a basic audience. However, people these days are looking for something new and exciting. So lets bring it to them!

I agree with Lester. Dont worry about what design on here looks good or doesn’t look good. Dont bash other peoples work. Concentrate more on your own work. Its pointless to bash or figure out who’s work on here belongs here and who’s does not. Everyone is titled to their opinion, however your opinion is going to be different than everyone else’s. Same goes for me, what I think looks good may be different than your views. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”.

Its also pointless to complain about these reviewers. They are the reviewer, that means what they say goes. You also not only have to tailor to the needs of the public, but them as well. If you dont like it, work on your theme and submit it some place else. Or sell it yourself :) (you get to keep all the money that way ;)

Furthermore, if something dont seem fair to you then stop complaining and change it! :) Thats my personal motto :)

Firstly, I am a girl ;) and to be honest I am not sure that this theme would be approved or not if you made the changes (although its worth a try)

Secondly I am quiet curious to know what designs you think are not stacking up as well.

Thirdly, I dont think that your design is not unique not because it is an exact copy of an existing theme, but because there is nothing there to immediately catch the majority of peoples eyes.

And finally I wouldn’t be beating my head against a wall. I dont allow myself to get stressed like that. :)

Only if you have a problem. If you feel that you are being treated unfair on here than yes. However if you do want to sell here than you are going to have to be open to criticism and help. You are acting like your theme is the best. However, I and another individual critiqued your project and exposed its flaws. However, you still claim that your theme is awesome and there is this kind of conspiracy & unfairness thing going on with the reviewing process simply because your theme has not been approved after 6 months or so of work.

I understand your pain. It can be heartbreaking and annoying to have something you have worked on so hard for so long still get shot down. But you have to keep trying. :)

If you feel you are being treated unfairly talk to support.

Dekciw, you should not be posting because the question you asked was already answered. Pretty simple, right? Probably not for you.

Everyone else, thank you for the feedback. A lot of it I do agree with after looking it over. A few things I do not which I wont go into.

The reason I posted this is because I have seen much worse, in fact horrible, themes make it on theme forest (I could post theme here but they wont let me).

Also it’s important to note that a theme I made and submitted to here several times before giving up and eventually publishing it to another market place. In the last two months it has sold more than 50% of the other WP items. This is out of 300+ themes.

To be completely honest I at this point do not think that the reviewers are being fair at all.

I realize that all of you said multiple things that you think would make this a better theme but could any one of these things get the theme rejected, or hard rejected I should say, because that’s what I got.

Can anyone feel my pain? I seriously have submitted to here for 6 months seeing many not so nice and not unique themes get published daily.

As far as the unique thing goes could anyone show me a link to a file that is even similar at all? I have yet to see it. The pictures are general so that people can imagine there own pictures there.

Here is the big question, which I already know the answer, and I think you guys do to. If this was submitted by an existing author would it be accepted?

Think about it and look at the other themes on here an you will come to the same conclusion as I did.

So a new author has to be better than the best to get started?

The review system is wack and other people know it. Most wont say anything because they are afraid to upset the reviewers, as they should be, because this is all about people not about files or themes. I was scared to but at this point I have nothing to loose.

I truly feel that no matter what I submit it will be rejected.

If you feel that way then simply just submit your site some where else or sell it yourself :)
