Here’s the current design (for which I got exactly the same rejection reason as before… I mean, isn’t there any difference between them?): http://danthemes.com/demo/raluk/ Here’s the design submitted a few weeks ago: http://danthemes.com/demo/raluk/old.png

What can I do to get it accepted?

What do you think is the biggest problem? The quality of the design or the lack of features? Or both?

Unfortunately your submission ** isn’t quite ready for ThemeForest and requires significant improvements and changes before it can be resubmitted and reconsidered.

Additionally, we have some extra feedback for you:

Your template does not provide a unique enough design with the necessary design quality, features and options to compete in the marketplace at this time. As higher quality templates become available in the marketplace, approval requirements will increase to maintain appropriate marketplace quality.

You might consider improving your design with more unique features and graphics in order for it to stand out among other marketplace items. However, a unique design will be a key factor for approval.

I know it’s frustrating to be rejected citing uniqueness but recently, we’ve gotten a large number of template with the same overall features and presentation and we have to draw the line somewhere.

However, we do accept themes with similar structure but in condition it provides better quality in terms of aesthetic or features.

I think that it’s not about it being “bad”. It’s about it not being good enough. So either bring in more features, or make it more stunning. That’s what it actually says in the last line of the feedback.

I think someone somewhere here said it very well, that you need to first make something that you think would be good enough, and then push it even further.

Good luck!

Blunny is right. It’s not “bad” it just “okay”. You should polish this up, add more features, pay attention to details etc. and it will probably be accepted :) look up similar templates to yours here on the marketplace and you’ll notice the attention to detail here is astonishing.

Just keep at it, you’ll make it! :)

Kind regards, Tom
