Hey Guys, Our HTML5 vCard was just rejected .

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 features and graphics in order for it to stand out among other marketplace items. However, a unique design will be a key factor for approval.

Here is a preview of the vCard http://codempire.net/themeforest/vCard/deploy/index_bokeh.html

I dont see how our file is not “unique”, and I don’t see how the quality isnt there. By the way, this does come with 18 colors, and alot of documentation..

Any help would be great Thanks Codempire

Heh, I remember your introductory post of:

“We can wait to get a little crazy,and put up like 500 wordpress themes! Anyone up for some competition?”

Not as easy to get accepted as you thought huh?

Anyway, back to the template.

It’s basic to say the least, nothing special. The “bokeh” effect background is far too prominent and grabs too much attention, also the edges of the circles are very pixelated.

The rest of the design is graphically weak. There really isn’t much to critique on, it just looks boring.

You could also add a style switcher so we can see the other 18 colors…

Scott.

No that’s a start. You’ll get the same response from reviewers until you get to a certain quality level.

lol I was just kidding, but I do see your point. Those circles are a bit choppy.

And your right about the style switcher. I do appreciate your feedback, although it was a little harsh.

Boring, and Weak is kinda harsh bro,lol.

Perhaps the funny part is that this theme was approved on ActiveDen without any issue. http://activeden.net/item/vcard-xml-3d-mini-website-template/full_screen_preview/180071

And?

Themeforest criteria is different and this just isn’t good enough.

I totally agree with Scott. You can´t compare Activeden with Themeforest like you can´t compare Videohive with Themeforest, because there is a lot of trash and really bad stuff accepted by the reviewers. Sure Themeforest got also some ugly themes, but I think the skills are a lot higher here.

To your theme -> Its boring, the bokeh effect is 2005 and not 2011, the vcard portfolios are available about 30 times here and yours is not really better than anyone of it. There are also some coding issues in the new Firefox (download text). Try to add some more features and unique elements.

Good luck with it.

I’m not being harsh, or trying to offend but as I’ve said a 1000 times I will always say it how I see it, sugar coating things doesn’t make progress, honesty does. :D
