Hello all,

I need some criticism for my template that has been soft rejected twice. Here is my original design: http://defonic.com/templates/novax/

1st Soft Reject Response

Soft Rejected Reason: Definitely a good start here. However, there are a few aspect that required your attentions: There are a few inconsistent spacing/padding as well as alignment issues throughout the design. I’d like you to go over it with a fine toothed comb and weed out these basic design issues. The content area is pretty generic and plain, and it will need more imaginations. http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/articles/design-theory/understanding-visual-hierarchy-in-web-design/

So I made my changes and read the above tut (very informational). Here is my update: http://demo.surgd.com/html/novax/

And then I resubmitted for review… Although what I had thought was a great improvement, I then received the following response:

Second Soft Reject Response:

Reason: You are receiving that message because the resubmission doesn’t show any significant improvements. It did show some changes. The overall design is generic and it is lack of uniqueness. We already have a number of submissions with the same overall design and concept and we have to draw the line somewhere. 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.

Does anyone else agree that there was no significant improvement?

I’m not trying to sit here and whine and cry… I just need another set of eyes here to improve my design. I strongly believe criticism is for the best and I appreciate the feedback and do listen to all feedback. I know the reviewers can’t sit there and explain the details in extent so this is why I am asking for some feedback.

Thanks in advance!

I have been a member for over a year but only recentlly became active, past two weeks or so. From what I have seen this place seems like a ghost town. Where is the staff? I would like to ask the elders here, what is going on with the support? Is there an overwhelming item submission that support is far from average?

I need some opinions on my response of a soft rejected item. As you can see from the screen shot below.

After I edited my changes and reuploaded through the hidden/edit tab you can see the response I received. My question is, does it seem like a quick copy/paste response from a script? Does it seem like I received just about any response just to get one less from the queue?

or am I being paranoid?
