I just uploaded my new design on themeforest and it got rejected fo these reasons:

===================================== We’re sorry, your item VIVID – deep into theming has not been approved for sale on ThemeForest. This is the reason given by our item inspector:

1) 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.

2) You might consider improving your design with more unique graphics in order for it to stand out among other marketplace items.

3) This theme falls under “similar themes” and it doesn’t show any uniqueness to make it stand out.

4) I know it’s frustrating to be rejected citing uniqueness but recently, we’ve gotten a large number of template with the same overall features and presentation and we have to draw the line somewhere.

and the fun fact is that :), one of the best selling CMS themes that i got – Glossy, was rejected 3 times by this guy who was reviewed this item too. i spend at least 3 month to complete this theme, I’m frustrated why the reject this item when there is no Theme like this in Drupal category? maybe i must choose another place to sell my works.

Heres the design http://demo.acquiathemes.com/vivid/

I really like your theme, its really nice ,and ifs weird that you got rejected for not being original when half the templates here follow a similar design and layout (responsive, banner image, four columns, footer).

Thanks dude, guess that i need to make it much more like to other themes, or maybe reduce some features from it!

1. Increase text contrast for menu items.
2. Using cufon for menu items is a very, very bad practice
3. I can not use search form. Text input is not visible and if I press the button it redirect me on search page
4. Too much blank space in footer. If you remove title and subtitle (VIVID, Deep….) it will look much better.
5. Page title and subtitle spacing. Also use a standard web font for subtitle.

Hope that helps

Good luck.

kailoon Reviewer says

When your template is rejected due to lack of uniqueness, it means it looks generic, but it doesn’t mean it looks bad. It looks similar to other templates but using different fonts and color, it is more like a re-skin. So, make it to look like others will not lead to an approval.

- Work on the visual hierarchy, - Where is the search field? - The content area is messy, try to work on the element placements. - Low contrast, tiny font size and overused of white space do not make it become a minimal design. It will only lead to a generic and plain outcome.

Hope this help.

I concur with Smartik on the white space; Generally clean design just needs a bit of tweaks and you’re home and dry.
