Hi all, I am new in here, it’s glad to know there’s a theme marketplace like themeforest. Two days ago i just submitting my first XHTML template, and not-surprisingly got rejected :(

And the reason is:
“This File Did Not Meet Our Criteria. Thanks so much for taking the time to submit this template. Unfortunately, due to our current quality standards, your template has been declined. Your template’s design does not meet our quality standards at this time and will need significant improvements before it will be ready to be reviewed again. You might consider taking a look at some of our popular premium items to get a better idea for the quality level of graphics, typography and general design that we require for approval.”

I designed this one as a one page site, what your suggestion for improvement? I mean, significant improvement so it can meet themeforest’s quality standard. Take a look the preview of what I submit here

Thanks for any review welcome, don’t hesitate to be harsh to my design :)

Dear amatyr4n!

Your page takes way too long to load. But I waited so you get more from me than just “its slow”. The quote looks weird, maybe it’s the alignment. Also, the House icon in the content is not aligned to the text. The background looks a bit awkward when viewed on a large screen. I think the font is too big for this small space. The font on the on-menu-hover appearing “arrow” is not aligned in the middle. I think you mainly need to work on the typography and alignment + spacing.

Oh, now I made the mistake to click on one of the portfolio pictures and it loads again forever. So I quit my review for now ;)

Hope I could help anyways, greetings, GC

Like so: http://666kb.com/i/bmxyxads8pmbuclmr.jpg

I just changed font-size and line-height, and I added text-shadow: 1px 1px 1px #fff; It’s not that punching now anymore. I removed the borders as well, they’re disturbing. And I noticed your line height is 1.0em, thats way too less. I made 1.4em on this picture.

Greetings, GC

@MASSIX I’m sorry if the site takes too long to load, although it loads fastly from here.. maybe because I hosted it in my country web hosting.. :(

If anyone want to get a look also, I’ve hosted the same new one in a free hosting as an alternative (hope not take forever too) at: http://amatyr4n.noads.biz/test/freshlr-1.0/

@drdesign thanks drdesign yes you’re right, it is indeed need many-many improvement so that’s why I’m hoping review from you all successful member.. :D

Anyway, what form did you mean if can be more specific? I’m sorry but I don’t get it.. do you mean the paragraph content? I set the overflow to auto.. or is it better if I set the height to be liquid?

@glossycat I see there.. so now I need to work on fixing alignment & spacing of each elements with others, change the awkward-on-large-screen background, and about the typography I think I’ll embedding good looking custom fonts maybe.. and yes it looks like the default line height in CSS reset is too dense for paragraph..

Many thanks GC, its very kind of you :)

How do you think is it ready enough to be reviewed again or still there is a need to be fixed?

Oh wow now you changed a LOT ! Much better now, but I’m not sure if it will be enough. You definitely got some creative approaches here, I’d put the notebook above the content, not below, but this is just my physical understanding, it somehow disturbs me :)

Anyways did the reviewer check it yet?

The improvement is possible because of feedback from you as well GC, many thanks :) Good luck for yours as well, I’ve seen your thread item and I must admit it is much-much better than mine ;)

Anyways did the reviewer check it yet?

Not finished yet actually it’s now soft-rejected and still hidden maybe will get reviewed again soon, still stand 4th in queue, but I must give it a time ;)
