Just a generic reply this time… :crying:

We’re sorry, your item Achilles – Extreme Customization HTML /CSS Template has not been approved for sale on ThemeForest. This is the reason given by our item inspector:

I’m sorry but the earlier review stands. The design has changed but the quality has not.

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.

While I’ll be able to provide feedback as to how to get this approved, I can only do after it has crossed a certain threshold, quality wise. I’m sorry to say this isn’t there yet.

I suggest seeking feedback via our forums or sites such as http://Dribbble.com, http://ConceptFeedback.com or http://Forrst.com. These are all fantastic resources to seek feedback from fantastic designers who have a knack of getting their designs approved.

Your template has many cool functions but i think you have to stay away the 960 gs layout. try something different, look at the template i am working on http://lementstudios.com/hiphop/

Try to come up with something that is a bit different. I am not saying that my stuff is all that unique but this is kinda my style lots of animation and i use a different layout other than a 960gs.

You got the animation part down but i think they want a more unique look or layout.

Cheers

Lester

Hello Lester,

I agree with you. I think that they’re actually not looking for a template like mine, even a 10x better than this. I just wish they’d just shut me down from the start so that I’d moved on to my next item.

Anyway, I learned A LOT from my rejections, and going to make my next template to my strengths: animation, jquery, ajax and flashy graphics. I think I’m going to shoot for a portfolio / photography animation template.

Thanks for everything my friend, Nikos
