I think TF is reasonable. The typo of this template does not look good in my opinion. For example, the font size should be 14px instead of 15px in footer then it would look much better, also the links in footer are too bright with that white color, try using the same grey color with plain text, because the titles are white already so it makes a bad contrast.
Also, try adding some texts for your slideshow and increase the speed of animations, it’s too slow now. Make your dummy content looks more “real” as well, the question titles are like they are repeating from one.
Just my 2 cents.
I think everyone here has experienced the same, me too. It’s really hard to know what to change/improve to get an item approved when receiving that reason of rejection. However just try to check/compare with other items on the market and improve it as much as you can then try resubmitting it, that’s how I did and my first template was finally approved today after 2 weeks since my first submission. Do not give up!
By the way, your link does not work.
Today I woke up tiredly, opened my laptop as usual, and saw a mail from Themeforest, you know what, it said my FIRST template was approved, right on the FIRST day of the year, after 12 days of wait, and Kailoon, our man, did that. This did not only made my day but also my year, fellas!!!
Happy New Year to you and your family too.
