Strange rejection happened to my theme.

WordPress theme rejected: http://rayoflightthemes.com/WordPressThemes/Political_Activism_WordPress_Theme/

HTML template has already been approved: http://themeforest.net/item/activism-multipurpose-activism-html5-template/8416320

Reviewer answer: “Furthermore, WordPress requires a higher standard than HTML templates. Your template has to provide the proper value for the WordPress platform to be considered . This template does not provide enough quality or features for the WordPress category.” (btw this is not template but theme)

Theme has features for this niche such “events page” and “donation page” and all other standard features for WP and also pagebuilder (Aqua) and Slider Revolution.

I didn’t find much similar themes here, maybe few. I don’t have much competition to even compare my theme with. Then how can I know how to improve it? Besides that I have customers who are waiting for WP version, you can see that in HTML template comments.

Is there someone who has idea what could be done here? Is there reviewers who have advice?

Time to find another marketplace. I had the same situation with my HTML template and it’s WP version which is not aproved. I also have customers who were looking for WP version. Actually I didn’t check your HTML but if you already coded HTMLs before it should be good in terms of code then the “problem” is design. Funny thing is that now they have higher “standards” for HTML category then PSD in therms of design.

Arvixe shared hosting. I’m using it for my themes/templates for almost two years and I’m satisfied. It is also recommended for Concrete5 themes.

I think this may have something with money refund for authors as possible future feature. Maybe refund will only be possible for author’s money share, not for Envato’s “fee” that would be kept as “fee for using site”. I hope this won’t happen.

you should limit the number of support requests per customer per week or month

Sounds nice but then a customer sends you one email with 100+ questions…

My opinion about design of these icons is that design is good as illustration but not fit very well as icons. That is not designer’s fault for sure, there was someone who wanted to have icons just like these we got. Like designer/client work. Personally I don’t care much about icons, there is much more important problems here lately.

When I first saw icons I never had impression that design is “feminine” as some authors said. Feminine or masculine or neutral design can be produced by men or women equally, not to mention that those categories are highly subjective. Sometimes final design depending of project requirements and sometimes of personal taste, and there is definitely no gender difference in skills for design.
