Is it necessary to get both 0 errors and warnings? Right now, I’m getting around 50 warnings and 0 errors. The warnings are coming from the third party plugins/widgets I’ve included in my theme so I can’t really fix all of them. Do I need to get rid of all the warnings as well? Or is just 0 errors acceptable?

I haven’t submitted my first theme yet, but I don’t think 0 warning is necessary, sometimes plugins use outdated animation methods. Those are not hard to fix, but it would slow down the progress of creating a template and those plugins are to fasten your development.

anyway I would suggest to lower the warnings too.

Well I havent submit any items so I wouldnt know…however I checked some latest submitted Wordpress items in the W3c validator and some of them got errors in them. So that does say something. Remember the validator is a tool not a goal.
This is what I found about submitting guidelines.

EDIT: Maybe this is even more helpful

Yes “validation error from third party script is alright” , this is literally what a reviewer told me but of course you need to validate your own code 100%.
