Theme looks very nice to me. Did they provide any details on why was it rejected?
I could notice just one issue – maybe it is slightly overloaded with jQuery effects, it causes problems with scrolling, especially on some older computers. From design point of view seems quite OK to me, though I am not a designer myself
No Unite2005, thanks!
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.
maybe it is slightly overloaded with jQuery effects
and they want more features….
Agree with cjbug – it’s very weighty, when you scroll there’s a lot going on and a slight delay from actually scrolling to the site moving.
I don’t think that they meant that they want more features, probably they just meant it’s similar to other themes and needs something to stand out. Maybe you can re-think the structure somehow, add something that is untypical (horizontal scrolling, or something like that).
