Just a little question.

Uploaded a theme, which was soft rejected with 2 minor issues, corrected the issues and submitted.

In que for only a few hours which was good and then suddenly item is held, its been nearly 24 hours now.

As the changes was just to remove overlay and to make the typography a little better within the footer because it made it a little generic looking.

Why would it be held?

I have read the reasons why, it states the person may need another persons opinion for not having the correct expertise etc etc.

But the reviewers in this category are top notch and know there thing.

I’m pretty sure it goes back to the same person that soft rejected it, to be re-reviewed again. You’ll just have to wait until they start reviewing again.

I dont think this is it, its been nearly 2 days on hold now, over 15 items have been accepted since and the reviewer has been online on the forums.

Having it on hold, stops work or at least slows me down and makes it a very un-constructive day/days. a rejection or acceptance would be better :(

When it’s being held by the review team, more reviewers need to check the item, not just the original one, so you’ll need to wait some more time

I would understand but it was only from a soft rejection which was for taking away opacity within the comment and for typography within the footer.

Not a huge thing.

Maybe reviewer found another problem in your theme and need help other reviewer with special skills to review the item. You just need to wait :)
