My theme was rejected and I need som advice how to improve the theme.

1) You need to include a more in depth help file. Try using our help file template which you can download here: http://blog.themeforest.net/site-news/help-file-template/

2) You will need to specify the source of any images, scripts, etc. (even if it’s your own) and if you have obtained the appropriate commercial licensing. We just need to make sure copyrights aren’t being violated anywhere.

3) You have a great start on this template but the footer needs some refinement and the “Name, Company” text has no space beneath it. Overall the template needs some additional work and improvements in padding/spacing and typography.

I dont agree with you. Everything is not the same. My theme has a twitter feed and google maps integrated. Look at my contact-page. It’s not even a bit similar. Many themes on themeforest have their portfolio page organized at the same way as I.

Some thins are the same, but OVERALL the design is not the same just because the content is placed the same way. Look at my code, then you will see that I don’t have copy/paste anything.

Yes I admit that the templates are looking very similar, but the are not the SAME .

Let Themeforest decide if it’s to similar.

That whole “recent projects” thing is very similar (if not the same) to the other theme

It’s the same plugin and the images are the same. As i mentioned earlier, let Themeforest decide if the themes are to similar.
