I’d really love to keep things simple and avoid too many jquery animations, sliders, etc. Could that be possible if the theme was well done?
What I’m getting from this is that my theme is a little boring and inconsistent.
Can anyone help me out here? I want to get better, but I can’t see what’s wrong with my theme.
I thought for sure I’d get a soft reject, but I got a hard reject. Can anyone tell me how to improve my design?

Here’s the message I got:

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.ty wise. I’m sorry to say this isn’t there yet.
Should I try to make my theme pass the standards or just put it out for free and move on to the next?

Ah that’s awesome!
Anyone else here not use a case?
I took off my case and screen protector a while ago, and I gotta say it’s no problem at all (iphone 4). I feel like it’s a crime to cover up a device made so beautifully with a case.
C’mon everyone, free your phone!

LOL I’m going watch this every time it gets shared, the whole thing.
@YTolun My first theme just got rejected, I know how you feel. Nothing to do but get better Good luck with your next submission!
I find it increasingly hard to do a full design before starting coding nowadays, why? Responsive, that’s why. When we used to design static width pages that just had to look perfect at 960px then I think fully fledged designs were great, but now, anything more than a wireframe and a decent bit of inspiration I find too constricting.
Well said. I don’t use Photoshop in my process, but if you did couldn’t you also sell the PSD here? So you create the PSD, then the HTML template, then the WordPress theme, and then sell each of them individually. Anyone here do that?
