Hi guys and gals. My latest theme was rejected and I’m not sure why. “File did not meet our criteria.”

This is the live demo of the theme: http://appchain.com/themes/TearDrop/

Can anyone tell me why it was rejected? thanks!

Hey!

Maybe it's too simple, it doesn't make it feel like a premium pro theme.. and very similar to other minimalistic themes here on envato.

How is it too simple? did you see all the pages? did you check the functionality?

Yes, I’ve seen all the pages. Functionality is OK. The problem is in the layout I guess. I mean the design is not so classy. Sorry, but it’s my honest opinion.

I think it looks great!

but

I think you just missed the boat. I think it looks like a number of the other great themes on here. So they probably felt it was to similar.

Dont loose faith though, I like the design, I just think you are unlucky with the timing of uploading it. They are tightening up the accepted themes rules now.

:-)
