What percentage of hard rejects occurs?
Please share personal experiences, who do not mind.
My experiences now (i publish here two templates, and both times got hard rejection):
Personally I have tried with 4 Items and Got only one onto TF and it took me 8 months. But I realized something though. Looking back I can clearly see great improvement on my work, I also realized that I rushed the 3 that didn’t get accepted.
The one that did get accepted however was the one that I took my time with. I took extra time just to make sure I was very happy with every part of it. If something bugged me even a little bit, I redid that section or that feature or whatever. I ended up working on it a lot longer than I thought I would, but, it paid off.
So don’t look at the percentage of your work that doesn’t get on here, but see how you can improve every time and before you know it, you’ll get an item accepted. Just keep pushing and learning and working and it will pay off eventually. Don’t get impatient, because then you rush designs etc and make small mistakes that can cost you a spot on the market.
Anyways that is just my personal experience and opinion. I thought I might just share my mini story with you for some encouragement
I would guess 80% is rejected. But just a guess.
For me it’s 100% because my works did not get accepted
But I will not give up
1st theme hard reject / hard reject / give up
one year later…
2st theme Soft Reject / approved
3st theme hard reject / soft reject / soft reject / ??? (i hope it was a approved :P)
I had given up and decided to try again after one year on the advice of a friend … and it was the best thing I did
Never give up! Keep Working!
1st and 2nd Hard Rejected…...............never got soft rejected or approved
3rd, 4th and 5th Soft Rejected, then Approved
6th Hard Rejected…...............never got soft rejected or approved
7th and 8th now at soft rejected…...I hope these will get approved soon…....
For me like a year of rejected themes, and then aproved. But recently i received some hard rejections, I was some time afk, I’m catching up
well my experience is different, i had worked for an elite author for two years and got around 22 theme designs approved, but when at the same time i tried to upload the design under my own name, i got hard rejection…..i think they give tough time to new comers, whether design is good or not, this is just my personal experience.
