Hello, I recently submitted a theme for Ghost blogs (I’ve been really excited about in the leadup to its launch!), which was subsequently rejected for “our minimum requirements for quality and/or marketplace policies,” with the implication that its not up to snuff aesthetically.

Here are the preview images: http://imgur.com/a/wu3AB

So, my question to those who have made it through the approval process: what can I do to improve it? It’s meant to be a simple theme centered around the content (the very philosophy of the Ghost platform), like someone would use for a personal blog.

I have a question about the deadline. In a rush to meet the deadline, I stayed up late writing documentation and submitted an entry at ~1:00AM EST on the 20th. But as of now the item has still not been approved. (It’s still working its way up the approval queue.) Will it be eligible for the competition, since I submitted it about 23 hours before the deadline, or does it have to have been approved already? (It’s a second entry for me, so it’s not a HUGE deal if it doesn’t count, but of course I would like it to…)

1. The deadline has been extended until the 31st.

2. It will include any item submitted before the deadline regardless of when its approved(Jeff mentioned it a few times).

Cool. I must have missed the memo… :)

I’m not an author, I’m a buyer, but…seeing that your goal for this contest is to promote a fresh new crop of ideas…perhaps you should extend your deadline? You said you spent “months in planning,” yet your contest period is a mere 6 weeks? And that’s assuming everyone who might contribute knew about it from day 1 and had ample availability during that brief period. Sure, it’s a contest, but it’s also business, and if your goal is to get more new and substantial contributions for your inventory, that’s a tight window. You may end up just getting mostly what was already in the pipeline anyway. That could negate a good bit of your effort and the prizes you’ve set aside for this. I’d highly suggest you look into pushing your deadline out.

Sssshhh, you’ll hurt our chances. ;)

I second Obj-C/Cocoa. Between OS X and iPhone OS there is plenty of room for an easy way to pick up classes or things.

And people need to lay off the Adobe slagging and accept it. It’s just business, and cases like this happen all the time.

That doesn’t make it right. These companies really need to lay-off the aggressive “trademark protection.” It’s not good for anyone.

Yes, there are times when actions should be taken about obviously-confusing names and logos. But sending a C&D to anybody with “Flash” in their domain isn’t one of them.

I was wondering how I would go about licensing an admin theme for use in my open source application? Would I need to pay the designers or TF extra to license this?

I’m pretty sure that this wouldn’t be okay by the ToS. It would probably be distribution. Then again, maybe TF could sell you a “developer license” without the one-site limitation for more $$$?

Thank you for clarifying this, danharper. I was wondering the same thing myself. (Mainly out of curiosity.)
