I noticed that some author’s themes are easy to get Approved:

1). it looks all the same with others. 2). it’s not unique. 3). it looks like his other themes.

But why the reviewer let the theme get Approved? When I and some new anthor submit a theme, we all get the message:

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.

I’m sure the reviewer helped me a lot so far. But recently when I get rejected, I can’t get any specific information. Is there special rules for some author for the reviewing?

Your mean some accounts are not easy to get approved?

No, I mean I worked with other “elite” accounts in the past. This is my new account.

It is part of testing and learning curve for us. There are many factors for an item to be accepted, in term of designs and code. So, I start making my own check lists of the minimum requirements&features, for both design&code aspects, that make an item accepted. And it will be guideline for releasing “premium” themes now.

You are Elite author but question is not to make sense. I think you have elite author experience enough and you know what you doing and submitting :)

I’m beginner on Themeforest maybe your design is not too good.

But in day by day reviewers become so strict :(

Maybe my design is not good. But if the reviewer don’t like your design, you will have no chance to show it on themeforest. Maybe the reviewer don’t like it, but the buyer likes it.

Blaiming other’s success for your failure is not ideally the best way to go in life. At least for myself, I don’t really care about any other authors, I do what I like, if I get rejected, I improve it, until it gets accepted.
