After I got 3 WP templates rejected, I tried with a HTML template, and it went from soft reject to hard reject.

First mail:

Your item White Folio – Responsive AJAX Portfolio Template isn’t quite ready for ThemeForest. This is the reason given by our item inspector:

1. Your file has some well done design concepts but you need to put more work on the typography.

2. You will need to make some additional improvements in overall aesthetics and aspects such as graphics and spacing.

3. There are a few inconsistent spacing issues throughout the design.

4. Even with the current design, a significant increase in the polish of the various aspects of the template may just swing the decision in your favor.

You can edit your file and have it reviewed again at http://themeforest.net/item/white-folio-responsive-ajax-portfolio-template/2311028

So I did some updates to line-height, changed font, fixed a few alignment/spacing problems, and another few minor updates, and got this email:

We’re sorry, your item White Folio – Responsive AJAX Portfolio Template has not been approved for sale on ThemeForest. This is the reason given by our item inspector:

The use of one color across so many elements in the template creates a somewhat “flat” appearance.

Your site looks simplistic and it does not meet our current design standards.

aha. so It’s cool that you made me improve typography, when you knew from the start that you will no way approve this.

I know I will get nowhere with this thread I just want people to read this.

template here

and some of the old ones: template here template here

Agreed. No offense but some accepted themes look horrible.

and also some very good ones get rejected.

wouldn’t it be better to raise the prices of the best ones? then you have space for more.

I think this thread is more about old authors don’t want new ones to come.

welcome to TF haha

to be honest, your theme is just too generic. it looks like it’s only a skeleton and lacks visuals. try to browse the TF library to get some idea what they need here.

Try to make a html template first to see where the standards are here. It looks good but I think it’d be rejected. TF has very high tresholds to every category especially PSD .

Hi, felow hungarian! :) (are there many of us here?? just wondering…)

Thank you for your opinion, appreciate it. If you think “it looks good” it’s good enough for me.

I’ll keep working on it.

Bye

Hi, there are a few of us here :-)

if you want to get approved something here, raise the bar high and higher, and don’t get discouraged when the reject it (they will).

I have no items here yet but it already made me a 10x better designer.
