this is an easy job
Why would you pay somebody to do it then? If it’s easy you should be able to knock it out in no time.

Agreed. Kudos for our reviewers for being objective enough on a topic that some people think is subjective.
How does this comment help the OP. I can see how it inflates the ego of the reviewer, but the OP needs the help here.

I don’t care about egos, including my own. The user states that he will delete his template and he is not asking for help. In any case, threats and weak psychology are not a good combination when dealing with business objectives, let alone dealing with buyers.

I have a good post history of helping potential authors and sometimes I search half an hour to find the best resources, also explaining that a rejection is a great way to stop and ask yourself if you’re going the right way. With the sole purpose of helping. But we have a saying here – “If you don’t help yourself, even God can’t help you”.

Regards,
Boris

I understand where you’re coming from, but I viewed his statement coming from a place of frustration and not necessarily a threat. If that was all the feedback he got from the reviewer then that’s pretty lame. I would hope a reviewer would point an aspiring author in the right direction, especially after 4 attempts instead of just saying, “nope, do it again.”

I’ve seen people post this auto reply several times in the forum with their rejected files. I wouldn’t take what it says to heart. I read it as:

“You’re theme isn’t quite ready, but I can’t be bothered to help you out in any way. Just do something to it that makes it better and then I’ll decide if I like it.”

Your theme isn’t all that terrible, there are some improvements that could be made sure, but it all boils down to personal taste. For example, I’m not a fan of the black borders around your images and the headlines under your section titles is larger than the titles, which looks strange to me.

But in the end, it’s just my personal opinion. What I don’t like, somebody else might love. I would just take what the reviewer says with a LARGE grain of salt, as it’s just his opinion. Unfortunately, his opinion is the one you have to meet to get on TF, but then again they’re not the only game in town. You should explore your options before just deleting your hard work.

Worst case scenario you could give it away for free to promote yourself if you’re satisfied with how it has turned out.

Given the troll-ish nature of this thread, that was hardly. If you are going to hold a contest next time, at least make it look like a contest because this looks more like a scam to quickly increase the number of your twitter followers.
Dude, if you are not going to participate, don’t bother on posting. What would I get by having more twitter followers ?

Just out of curiosity, if you’re not after more twitter followers then why is following you a prerequisite in order to win the contest?

It really only takes 2 weeks to design, code, and get accepted. Just ask Landon.
If I knew you well I’d send you proof, but I don’t so I won’t. It’s a shame people always shoot people down who actually work hard to achieve their goals.

yeah, poor you. Maybe you should take your own advice, based on the way you treat some of the other authors and aspiring authors around here. You know, the ones that have some work to show.

Anyway, this will be the end of it, so the fun police need not bother coming in here and telling me to stay on topic.

I’m pretty sure the Black Friday name comes from retailers making a profit, or being “in the black”.

No no – I’ve finished on time. I just won’t be uploading it until the 1st of January for tax purposes.

That wasn’t the challenge. You said: “Starting November 1st, I am giving myself 2 weeks to code a full-fledged theme and get it accepted on TF.”

So no, you haven’t finished on time.

You’re trying way too hard to get attention.
