Hi everyone. If you’re like me, every once in a while, you’ll come across a theme that makes you think, “How did that get accepted!”. We all have different taste levels, and things do slip through the cracks from time to time.

I’m beginning a new system to make sure that all of our reviewers, myself included, are on the same page. It’s understandable when I receive an email from an author stating, “My template is much better than this one…”.

How can you help me?

If you ever come across a theme that elicits a similar reaction to the one mentioned above, please send an email to sitemanager@themeforest.net.

Please don’t email me with a list of 20 templates, or ones that you simply don’t like the style of. Only email me if you come across something that you feel should have DEFINITELY been rejected.

I will then take these templates, confidential of course, and use them as a guideline for my reviewers.

A couple of you already do this, and I thank you so much.

Jeffrey

P.S. PLEASE don’t call anyone out in this thread. It’s disrespectful. Only send me a private email.
