I think 80% of rejected themes are rejected because of crappy design, tipography and hierarchy.

I always tell everyone that comes to me: Unlike illustration, drawing, fine arts and stuff like that where talent is essential, in webdesign talent is not as important. It helps, but practice and persistence do a much better job in the webdesign area than talent IMO .

We from DDStudios have gotten our items rejected so many times at the beginning that after a while you know exactly what to do to get it accepted at first.

Today, we know exactly what to look for and all the steps needed to get our items accepted at first. I personally haven’t had a rejected item in months (like 6 months).

Just make sure everything validates, your documentation is right, your design doesn’t suck and that your code is ‘readable’... Make sure you don’t include images that you are not allowed to and ALWAYS use the reviewers notes box to make small statements. For example, we’ve been using CSS3 a lot lately which causes it not to validate the CSS . We mention that in the reviewers box every time. Or when we include a custom background, make sure you say that you made it and that the PSDs also don’t include anything wrong.

Also make sure your description is well done. Besides helping your sales the description is compulsory. Sometimes we get our item Soft rejected due to the fact that our description is poor (we usually make it better once the item is accepted to see how it looks), but that’s just a point

A nice live preview also ALWAYS help.

Keep on going, and make sure to follow the right steps in the upload info.

:)

I guess I am one of those lucky ones, I am still waiting for my first rejection :P (8 items so far) But it’s just a matter of time, right Kailoon? :) I have this guts feeling he will reject my upcoming theme and it freaks my out a little to be honest… But if he do so, I will do my best to have it accepted, just like everybody does here – no discouragement, just push yourself till it’s accepted.

My first theme was accepted in one go and the second had a little bug in opera and needed some more documentation so was accepted during the second review.

There is this excitement during your first few themes where it’s so easy to miss small things. I had studied the marketplace and read everything that was needed to know, before working on my first theme. I guess, most authors skip that. There’s a lot of info on the forum and you will get great tips here.

I would’ve had many themes here but lost all my excitement due to a copyright infringement. Now, I’ve started a firm and my partner has convinced me these things happen and we should leverage the opportunity that TF & few other marketplaces have to offer. Hence, am back and you could expect more themes from us :)

My first theme didn’t even make it to the marketplace. I forgot about it and began from scratch, second one got accepted in the first try.

Ever since, I’ve had some themes rejected as many as 4 times, others accepted the first time and one soft-rejection.

First theme, a big dissapointment, got rejected 3 times, the second theme rejected 3 times. It was so frustrating because like DD said “hierarchy, typo and overall design” was crappy. Learned some new tricks, worked on my skillz and now in a few weeks i`m hoping for my first accept :)
