One says that why there are too many items approved everyday and the other one is saying that why so many items are rejected…

Sorry but this thread is not saying that too many items are rejected. This thread says that the time is wasted…

Impossible! Will you pay for the reviewer’s time?
Yes. I could pay $100-$200 for 30 minutes/1 hours of reviewers time instead of spend 2 weeks – 1 month for develop and get a general message. :D
Me too :) It is always better to spend $100 then 2-3 weeks of hard work.

What if your theme is rejected 3 or 4 times before getting approved? I guess in this situation we’ll have a new thread in the forum that we want our $400-$800 back now! ;)


The thing is themeforest have no competitor right now so they don’t need to do the stuff/extend works to get more items/authors. Actually they’re trying to remove more items as the amount of items is increase too much.

Did you read this thread? The thing is that two threads are running in the same time which are completely against each other.

I think some of elite authors thinks that they must have a different right from others, and they must put their items faster and easier than others and must have better place for showing them.

I’ll spend $400-800 instead of getting reject 4 times. I spent 2-4 months for this. do you want to save $400/800 or 2-4 months?

I actually got reject many times and spend more than 4-5 months to create reject wordpress themes. If the time is back , I could pay $1000 for it :D

For number items reject, it’s actually the problem in 2 different case. In case of market, the amount of themes are submiting is increase too much. The more item approved , the more profit % sale will be decrease more.

In case of review , market are getting more and more quality items , so they will use more rules , inscrease standard to reject items. It mean author is easy to getting reject than before. even both new and old authors.

If there is another market which an be a competitor for themefoest, everything will be different. Market will focus on making profit,convenient, take care of authors more. it look like themeforest is a exclusive open market now.

Yeah I know. I’ve wrote it only in reply to the post of @wopethemes. Maybe I was out of topic… :)

I would recommend to stop looking for a competitor as you can’t find any ;) There is only one ThemeForest and it’s here. You should put yourself in behalf of ThemeForest staff. What should they do? There are so many new designers and developers like you and me that are trying to enter into ThemeForest as an author because it’s unique and we can sell $10,000 to $50,000 in only a few months only in this marketplace. I don’t agree with you that they don’t care about us. But we should not expect them to do what we want and what we need immediately.

For sure they have their own plan for these marketplaces that are growing so fast. But this is something that will take time to become better.


I think some of elite authors thinks that they must have a different right from others, and they must put their items faster and easier than others and must have better place for showing them.

I wish you to become an elite author in the new future and see what you’ll say if your item is hard rejected that time :D

Yeah great, but for me doing HTML takes twice the time of making a WP theme :P

Yeah , you’re right. The only thing that I’m not happy is about the review. when review is only care about the design for approval/reject why don’t give a pre-review by checking our design (mockup) then we could have reason for spend time to develop wordpress.

Even I make 1000 features++, better than 10x almost theme here . I’m still got a chance to reject because only design!

So the simplest solution is review our design first (mockup) if market want to save our times.

But as I said , market don’t have reason to do that. If I or someone get out of there , others still work for themeforest.

I spent 10 months here and get only 4 approved wordpress. I’m not good design and I need to learn but it does not mean I must create wordpress to realise that this design is under-quality. LOL

Then, maybe we should start by sending the PSD files first… It seems that this is the only way to be sure before spending time on WP version.

I wish it for you too ;)
