But a detailed review takes in depth look into the theme, looking at the typography fine work like line height and such, the color scheme, the spacing, maybe the images used or the coding. This takes a lot more than 2 minutes, at least I would take longer if I looked through a theme carefully.
I didn’t meant a detailed feedback… A simple “Change the typography, add more contrast, i don’t like the sidebar at all and the footer is too big” is all I ask for, but I don’t even get that.
I always remember awesome feedback from incredibly skilled staff – upon request.
After sending a support ticket asking for specific reasons of why my theme was rejected, I got back a “Your item is not unique, we already have plenty of those. Ask on the forums.” – so, for me, sending a support ticket won’t help you at all. (i’m speaking from my experience, of course)
@MightyFine I doubt it takes more than 2 minutes to give a personal feedback. Let’s say only on the soft-rejected themes. How about that?
I know of cases where items got rejected for design reasons. And in these cases the designers were upset. But they each took the advice of the reviewer…
When you’re getting rejected because of your item’s lack of uniqueness and the reviewer points it as the only reason for it, “make your item more unique!” ain’t much of an advice. There is nothing specific about it. A little bit of personal feedback alongside the “[ThemeForest] Your uploaded item X needs improvement” email could be much helpful than just a copy-pasted generic paragraph… just my 2 cents.
The design approval on themeforest is very high, my clients are just not approving any themes I use from themeforest. I should seriously consider other places now, please let everyone design and stop accepting same layout files. Let designers come up with different layouts and simple effects.
I won’t leave ThemeForest, that’s for sure, so your reply doesn’t really answer my question. I was just asking for a little bit of feedback on my design.
There are authors from all around the world on this site, and since the world is round, there may be a chance that it’s night in your author’s country. Just give him some time.
Have you contacted the author yet?
I made some modifications to it + I made it responsive. What do you guys think of it now?
It’s been soft-rejected 5 minutes ago and the reason was uniqueness. So what can I add to it to make it more unique? What elements? What pages? What features? Anything specific? I’ve worked on this theme for over two months and it’s very frustrating being rejected because of the theme’s lack of uniqueness. Thanks.

I didn’t read the title carefully, sorry
