Hello,

Here is the review that we got when we uploaded our SIte template first on Themeforest.[23rd October]

” Unfortunately your submission Rainbow – Responsive HTML5 & CSS3 Template isn’t quite ready for ThemeForest and requires significant improvements and changes before it can be resubmitted and reconsidered.

Additionally, we have some extra feedback for you:

1. Your file has some well done design concepts, however it does not meet the current and very stringent quality guidelines and we can not accept your file at this time. You will need to make some additional improvements in overall aesthetics.

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

3. Overall typography needs additional refinements and improvements before it will be ready for sale.

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

Then when we next uploaded with a lot of polishness and increasing overall site aesthetics [29th October] We got this review.

“Unfortunately your submission Rainbow – Responsive HTML5 & CSS3 Template isn’t quite ready for ThemeForest and requires significant improvements and changes before it can be resubmitted and reconsidered.

Additionally, we have some extra feedback for you:

Overall, this is a very solid effort. I’m seeing a few issues that will need to be rectified but before that you need a bigger issue first — genericness.

Try to make your theme’s design more unique and less simplistic. A unique design is a key factor for approval.

I know it’s frustrating to be rejected citing uniqueness but recently, we’ve gotten a large number items with the same layout and presentation and we have to draw the line somewhere.

We reached a point of saturation already. At this point, we’re only looking for unique variations of this kind of layout. [header, slider, teaser, footer] “

Now after I posted this on the blog I got a lot of positive responses stating that my design is unique(albeit some small design issues which I am rectifying). Envato Staff if you can Please guide me through to get it approved.

Hello Little-Neko and Anps,

Thanks a lot for your inputs. We will certainly polish it to make it look at its best.

Hope the reviewers understand this and do not give the same stereotyped replies.

Anyone there to provide any feedback.
I like it!! I don’t understand the reviewers comments… imho if your theme works, why not approve it. Unfortunately I don’t know all the requirements for approval so I can’t suggest anything to help but I wish you all the best with it. I would certainly consider purchase and hope you do get approved soon :)

Hello Sharlene,

Thanks for your post. We are trying our heart and soul to get it approved and then hope you can purchase it :) Thanks again

We have been rejected Five times. And we have changed the design 2 times already. Last time reviewer said:-

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

Now Revieweris saying:-

“Overall, this is a very solid effort. I’m seeing a few issues that will need to be rectified but before that you need a bigger issue first — genericness.”

My question is does the reviewer before reviewing an item goes through what was the previous rejection reason? Or they treat it as a new item everytime.

Why are the reviews inconsistent on a same design.

the design is here

Not a bad effort in parts, but there are points that need tweaking, that caught my eye.

The navigation looks a little dated, and the dividers between the items are a little strong, make them a little more subtle, or drop them altogether.

The slider has some really poor imagery in it, the ‘Unplugged Development’ one has that low-res character with the shopping cart, use some sharper imagery.The ‘view work’ buttons as well look like they belong on another design, bring them into line with your theme a little more.

The Call to Action box under your slider needs improving, the text needs more room to breathe, and the stitched border does not sit well with the rest of your theme design.

There are some nice elements on the theme, and with a little more polish, I think it could do well.

thanks

Hello guuthemes , Thanks a lot for your inputs. I am going to modify accordingly.
