Hello all, need some of your insights on how to improve the design of my theme MaS: http://themes.mas.gambit.ph/

Here’s the rejection email I got:

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.

Here’s the link again: http://themes.mas.gambit.ph/

As an added measure, I’m going to add some adjustable colors and backgrounds in the preview also.

Thanks in advance for your help! :)

I’m viewing in Firefox 18.0.1. The contrast problems that I noticed are mostly in the footer, maybe in different color schemes the text is hard to read (see in screenshot above) or in the default color scheme the gray block holding social icons and copyright doesn’t contrast very well against the blue background pattern with my eyes.

Yikes, i think FF in mac renders differently in FF windows since i checked it in mac. Let me fix those alignments. Thanks for the tip! Ill fix those contrast issues. For the widget contrast, the text color can be changed in the preview panel in the demo site. Very helpful info :)

Okay scratch the difference in mac & windows, I must have accidentally changed something since the misalignment was looking okay before. :/
