Unfortunately your submission DEVO – Responsive Parallax Template isn’t quite ready for ThemeForest and requires significant improvements and changes before it can be resubmitted and reconsidered.

Additionally, we have some extra feedback for you:

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.

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.

I know it’s frustrating to be rejected citing uniqueness but recently, we’ve gotten a large number of template with the same overall features and presentation and we have to draw the line somewhere.

However, we do accept themes with similar structure but in condition it provides better quality in terms of aesthetic or features.

What can i do? Theme http://devo.webbi.org.ua/

Mind doing a peer review. I got the same rejection. Thread here: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/need-insight-on-wp-theme-design/86672 Theme here: http://themes.mas.gambit.ph

I like it, it’s quite unique. Some comments:

1. The stripes on the top part hurts my eyes when I scroll down. 2. The top menu needs some styling 3. I don’t quite like the big spinning icons. Maybe just a little rotation will do, or a nudge up or down. 4. There’s a weird gap just above the ‘about us’ that sort of shows the top picture. 5. I can barely see the contact form. Fix the colors 6. I’d prefer that instead of a plus button on the bottom.. remove that then fix the social buttons on the left/right side of the screen. 7. The plus signs on the pictures (when you hover) aren’t centered vertically. 8. The quote just above the ‘about us’ isn’t visible. almost didn’t notice it. maybe add a background to it

From what I’ve noticed in Forums, Themeforest reveiwers reject themes for this reason often lately. Maybe you should sell it on your own website and prepare a new one for the market. Personally, I think it’s a fine template but we don’t have to like it.
