After 3 or 4 times. But they where very useful because these rejections pushed me to improve my quality, knowledge and skills and make high quality designs and enjoy them.

We got one Soft Rejection with our first item, but it was one small silly Javascript issue that had to be sorted. Got good feedback though…. :)

Yeah, I agree rejections bring up the quality and only with quality a site like Themeforest can thrive. :)

Although it’s very good to know I’m not the only one getting rejected. :D It drives even further to improve. =)

On CC, first item had 1 soft reject. Then second item had none! On VH, all but one approved first time. Likewise with PD.

My very first theme on ThemeForest was rejected 8 times then it was in top seller list for quite a while. Never give up! :) (not talking about Avada)

Why did you remove the original theme?

I got my themes rejected like 5 times before my first theme got accepted :D even after getting my first item accepted my items are still getting rejected.

The rejected Items are not really a complete waste of time if you look at it in a different way. You could always take out the GOOD parts from these themes, improve upon them and create a new item full of all the GOOD and improved parts of the rejected themes. You never know it might get accepted or even hit the top sellers list :D
