I sent in a support ticket, it goes as follows:
Today I received an email with the title, “Your uploaded item Shinfo Super Hero Text Style Pack 1 rejected”.
The reason given, was that it doesn’t “meet our current minimum technical quality requirements for the category it was submitted to”.
I do find this odd. And this is why; Three days ago, a similar project of mine was approved, titled “Shinfo Style Pack 1”. This style pack is similar to #1, but very much unique from each other. This style pack was accidentally “Add-ons \ Photoshop \ Actions \ Text Effects” and was approved for sale. Obviously not the right place for it, my mistake, and yet ConstantinPotorac still approved it.
Okay, so back to the Super Hero stylepack. For the most part I was careful not to put the actual names of the comic book characters each style was modeled after in the preview image, but seemed to have been a bit lazy with the last two. Either way, this was not accepted when submitted to the “Add-ons \ Photoshop \ Styles \ Text Effects” section.
The email was not clear on why this item was rejected and I would like some feedback so I can rectify my errors and resubmit.
You say that your first style pack was approved but this one not. Well why do you think that happened. That off course is because the first pack is more unique than the one we just rejected. The style quality is not only similar to files we already have in the marketplace but the style itself is not that unique and quality is not that high.
This is the reason your file got rejected and the first one did not.
Thank you for your co-operation.”
While I agree, the styles are similar… the outcome is far different.
I don’t believe the file was rejected because it is too similar to your previous file, it’s just that it’s similar to other files on the marketplace as a whole. Obviously if it is similar to other files on the marketplace then it is not unique and therefore you need some way to differentiate your file either through exceptional quality or other methods.
Your previous item is irrelevant in this situation.

Pathetic. Cover up much.
