Sorry for the double post, the flickering issue has been fixed, it was just a simple z-index rule .

Nope :( I still see it flickering!

EDIT: Do you really need the JS? Can it not be done this way? http://jsfiddle.net/SvH6w/6/

Can you please clear your cache and try again? Try directly this link : http://roussounelosweb.gr/aurora1.2/#about

Believe me, been there, done that. Using CSS filters does not work on IE9 and IE10, Firefox and others, simply not an option.

Thank you for the replies so far, guys. Let me clarify some things:

1) The background blurring is dynamic via javascript, and realigned and positioned after each resize, thus the slow performance on resizing, unfortunately not much can be done in improving this, it’s either a not accurate background, or this.

2) I cannot seem to replicate the flickering, and I have tried Chrome on my PC, iMac, MacBook Pro and iPhone! But even if it were due to that, a soft reject would be enough :/

3) Too much color simply doesn’t look good on the glass, even Apple in their iOS implementation use grey, black and white only.

PS: Please do use the optionspanel on the right to better understand what my template does. And again, the glass background images are not static, change the blur strength parameter to check it out.

PS2: I’m really not sure if I should continue with this one. To me, it seems that this will never be what the reviewers are looking for :/

Thank you, Nikos

First of all, let me start by saying that YES, I am very angry right now. My latest template, has been rejected 3 times.

You can see the project here:

http://roussounelosweb.gr/aurora1.2/

The same generic answer, not metting quality standards for Themeforest!

I am fine with criticism, I know that I am one of the smaller authors here (after all, I’m not full time on this, and I’m solo). I can see the disparity in quality or/and features between my items and the best in here, but I think I bring something different with my items.

I cannot fathom however why this template qualifies as a HARD REJECT WITH NO POINTS GIVEN AS TO WHY. My template has many new ideas, a fresh design, and many unique features not seen in the majority of the items here.

  • Flat Design? APPROVED.
  • Multipurpose with 1000 demos and bloated as f**? APPROVED.
  • Clean one page design? APPROVED.
  • Not to mention some recently approved items (see landing page) that were plain bad looking.
  • Sorry for the rant, but I’m so angry at the moment. I am SO tired of working for more than 6 months on this project, I’m done with it, at least on ThemeForest.

    I’ll probably use it for a personal website or a custom client, but YOU CAN REST ASSURED MY NEXT TEMPLATE WILL BE A ONE PAGE, FLAT, CLEAN TEMPLATE LIKE 10000 OTHERS.

    Thank you for listening, and please share your opinion on the template, If you agree with the reviewers pls say so, and I can accept it.

    Thank you in advance, Nikos

Hello friend! I like it, especially the revolution slider slides :D

- I think typography is a bit lacking, the font size it barely readable for me. - The animation is a bit obtrusive, and I’m one of the most animate-heavy authors in here :S - While the spacing and paddings are quite nice in desktop, in mobile they’re not optimised. - When in mobile width, I open the menu, and I cannot see the close / hide button, am I forced to hit a link to move on?

Best of luck! Nikos

In short, I love everything below “our creative team” and hate anything above it. Also typography is a BIG NO NO. And I mean both the main text (use Open Sans or even Arial) and the dreadful headers (really don’t like them).

Just by fixing typography, I think this can go a long way!

Best of luck, Nikos

The worst thing is that many don’t even buy the themes / templates, the download them from… icky sites, or they use one license for multiple domains.

+1. This should be easy enough to implement (this could be applied to author profile pictures and banners as well).

This would be a VERY VERY BAD idea, authors from low-paid countries will start selling themes for $10 and will ruin the whole marketplace

Instead, authors from high-value currency countries lose money because of conversion rates, and cannot compensate.

I’m not saying let the authors handle the prices freely (as aformentioned, that would be quite bad for the marketplace), but some leeway could be given. For example:

  • +5$ / -5$ or a percentage.
  • Adjust the price according to the set currency.
  • Minimum price set by Envato, free to set higher by author.
