I think its a bit of a piss-take that there have been 9 templates accepted in just the creative category alone in the past 12 hours. I feel sorry for the people that were accepted yesterday as at this rate they would be out of the first page window by what the next 12 hours. Whats the point of putting hard work in, if theme forest staff doesnt help you atleast get some spotlight. If you are just going to be part of an archive its better to not be exclusive…
If the items themselves are of high enough quality, why reject them just for other items spotlight sake? I agree that nowadays new items slide out of the main page too soon, however, there are other ways to solve this.
A couple of more rows could be added, or another set that cycles with the first, etc.
no one said anything about rejecting items
