Hello Themeforest community,

First, I would like to thank the TF review team for their time.

I just uploaded my theme yesterday and to day in the morning I got this:

Unfortunately your submission Minimalist Responsive Drupal Theme isn’t quite ready for ThemeForest and requires significant improvements and changes before it can be resubmitted and reconsidered.

Additionally, we have some extra feedback for you:

Your template does not provide a unique enough design with the necessary design quality, features and options to compete in the marketplace at this time. As higher quality templates become available in the marketplace, approval requirements will increase to maintain appropriate marketplace quality.

You might consider improving your design with more unique features and graphics in order for it to stand out among other marketplace items. However, a unique design will be a key factor for approval.

I know it’s frustrating to be rejected citing uniqueness but recently, we’ve gotten a large number of template with the same overall features and presentation and we have to draw the line somewhere.

However, we do accept themes with similar structure but in condition it provides better quality in terms of aesthetic or features.

The answer was quick! I am just afraid that the respectful reviewer didn’t take the necessary time to explore the demo. I was just wondering what things exactly need to be improved!

Demo is here: http://minimalist.drupalprincess.com/

Thank you very much in advance for your time.

In my opinion it’s not unique enough… Like manuelvega said it looks too plain and has the same layout like other themes… Try to add more design elements in it, something that will stand out. try to play more with colors and shapes..
