Couldn’t agree more. Even my last rejection is now about a year ago I’ve learned a lot with the advice of the reviewer. Take a rejection as an opportunity, a chance to improve your skills and not as a failure!

- rejections = self improvement = better file quality = more money for you.

I agree with most the comments above, the rejection is making you improve yourself. But when the rejection says “does not meet the standards” and nothing more then you get the “im hopeless” feeling. If you knew that the file did not meet the standards you would improve it before submission. So you don’t know why it doesn’t meet the standards and you don’t know how to improve it so you get angry because reviewers do but didn’t tell you. That’s the explanation of the “OHMAGAWD MY ITEM IS THA BEST AND REJECTED ” threads.

The solution to this would be an improved knowledge base threads for improving items that are rejected due to that standard rejection.

edit: Just to be sure I’m not misunderstood, I don’t act like what I described above. But there are a lot of people that do.

“Reviewers are NOT our enemies”: agreed and I’m thankful for all of their comments.
About the “robotic” answers: I think they just don’t have time to comment on every theme/file they get (and I believe they review a lot) so it’s the author that has to get more opinions/reviews from other people.
For those who can’t have those opinions there are some websites where you can post your work and ask for second opinions.

Please do not give out information about the reviewers in the forums, calling out staff on the forums is against the forum rules! :)

Are you serious? Everybody knows those things, they’re PUBLIC … Look up what ‘calling out’ actually stands for and relax a little, it’s not like I shared something private …
First one is called a joke, because he is very efficient. Second is a public fact.

Anyway, let’s stay on topic.

Yes, I am very serious and very relaxed at the same time :) I fail to see what relevance the reviewers day to day job has with what’s happening on on the marketplaces. So, let’s stay on subject as you said! :)

The thread title sounds like saying “there is no poison in the water” to a stranger! :D

If you want to convey something to new authors about rejection, better don’t even speak about reviewers, just convey about rejection/approval process. ;)

Rejections are hard times. But in my opinion it helps me gain a lot of things: experience, patience, etc., After all, it’s not that the reviewers don’t want our file to pass, but they have to do their work to keep the marketplace’s quality or they’d not receive the salary. That’s it.

However, sometimes there remains controversial decisions, between what’s approved and what’s not; and I hope there would be no more times like that.

Thank you, reviewers, anyway :)

Agree with the main title of this treat! +1000 Is hard get rejected after weeks (or even months) of hard work on our themes, but the really true is rejections just generates better themes and improves the skills of the author who don’t give up in the first try.
