I’m just an author so i can’t really speak on behalf of the staff,but the reason for rejection was “Using material that is not Creative Commons” – fix that and it should be fine.
In my opinion the quality and design of the project is very good and it should be approved.
I would guess it’s hard rejected because there is a lot to fix (all the placeholder material)
Soft rejections are for quick little fixes you can do fast,like forgotten watermarks.In this case you need to look for new material,edit the project and render out a totally different preview which takes time.Reviewer probably thought it’s best to keep the soft rejection queue clean instead of having it hang around.
June is starting off better than May,which is surprising.
Sorry to hear about your problems.I always though Dell is the Apple of PC world.
So what kind of MAC did you end up with and is this your first experience with OSX?

It’s a good start.I think the reason for rejection is the lack of different versions.Lower thirds usually come as a set of 4-6 different animations that buyers can use according to their needs.
I also think your design and animation could use some polishing.
I think they are referring to the quality of the design & animation,meaning it’s not good enough for the marketplace just yet.
Do you have a preview we could take a look at? Maybe some feedback would help.
The “cheapest” option really depends on how much you are withdrawing.Placdarms wrote an article about this some time ago : http://placdarms.lv/withdraw-money-from-envato-marketplaces-cheeper.html
Personally i prefer SWIFT for large withdrawals and PayPal / Moneybookers for smaller ones.
Sounds absolutely normal.When you publish a project it gets a lot of exposure through the front page and category listing.Once that traffic dies down so does the sales,unless you manage to get to the “Popular Items” list.
