I started doing an includes.js which includes all the js files that load also did the same thing with the css files. I think this way is even better than having all the js and css files exposed.

Cheers

No, minified css and javascript means the theme is not easily customized and that is quite bad. The user must have access to the css and js files to easily modify whatever he needs.
That’s obviously not what i’m talking about, however, we’re offtopic since the point of this thread is to share rejection rules rather than argue whether they should be in place or not.

Why dont we “Authors” Build a wiki page off this thread and share our rejection and soft rejection reasons and update them frequently with suggested solutions

1. Don’t unregister default widgets, even if they are replaced with better versions.

As for minified CSS: ~development-stylesheets-for-theme-developers

It can help you to have less sort-reject issue. but each time we upload new theme , it will have some new reasons for reject. it depend on reviewers.

Yes. Probably they buy more time and delay approving themes to avoid to many themes in one day.

10. This is a resubmission of a previously rejected submission. Resubmitting without making the required changes or any improvements is not considered acceptable use of the Envato marketplaces and repeated attempts may result in a temporary or permanent suspension of authorship. If this item was previously soft-rejected, please resubmit your updated files by updating the item directly. If this item was previously hard-rejected, it must be changed as required in the initial review or significantly improved such that it qualifies as a new item.

1. RECOMMENDED: TEMPLATEPATH was found in the file index.php. Use get_template_directory() instead.

2. The WordPress theme should make use of the following inbuilt functions to validate or santize content on input or escape any questionable content for put. http://codex.wordpress.org/Data_Validation

.... WordPress – April 23, 2013 – JavaScript files need to be placed at the bottom, barring critical exclusion. [Modernizr, for instance] You can do this with the $in_footer argument …..
thanx for the heads up, so in order to use $in_footer parameter, what do you specify for $deps and $ver params if you need those as default?
