Last year I ate deep dish pizza with Jake… easily became the most exciting two hours of my career. Congrats Jake what an amazing op!

We reached our deadline and this event is now over!!

This particular Envato’s Most Wanted is now over. We typically wait a week to make sure any held/resubmitted items are processed before establishing the full set of winners. We’ll then announce all the winners and winners will receive their prizes in about 3-4 weeks from today (please do not contact us about status of prizes).

If you have an item in the review queue please message me to let me know, don’t worry about adding a link to this thread.

Hi all,

I have a problem with review of a submitted item that got rejection. I know this experience of rejection complains are around everywhere, but this time is very critical for me as i may leave this place depending on this issue when i tried to verify the quality of the design in general and with the quality of the currently approved category items!!

Here it is: http://unbouncepages.com/the-camera-apps/

As it’s known, the review message was common for these cases as following:

“The overall quality of your submission does not meet our aesthetic and technical requirements and will need to be improved before being resubmitted. Unfortunately we’re not able to provide more specific feedback for your submission at this time.

Please consider taking some time to familiarize yourself with our current library and quality levels of popular items before resubmitting.”

I will be thankful if i got some indications from participators here on this item. In addition, i will submit i again as it’s. If i didn’t get a satisfied and logical reply, 100% i will leave!

Shortly, i’m not a newbie!

We have a dedicated forum for this type of request. Please don’t post questions concerning rejections here.

Instead, ask for feedback in this thread: http://themeforest.net/forums/topic/item-discussion/26

Envato team – My item got rejected because of a navigation bar.

Why? The navigation bar is for quick navigation too anchors on the page. If a customer don’t need it then he can simply remove it – Navigation bars are handy especially in long pages…

What should I do?

My template: http://unbouncepages.com/artec-multi-template-homepage/

Please address all other issues with the template and kindly let the reviewer know that Josh has said that navigation that works with anchors is permitted.

Thanks!

My Second unbounce template got rejected and now i can understand there is no place on themeforest for new authors. Many of the poor quality templates with a lot of bugs (i can show you prove with links if requested by team) that no one is interested to get even for free are getting approval because those are submitted by old authors. Now i have created the best template and unique by spending 4 days and nights and review team has rejected and no review. That is not fair. They should provide any feedback. Here is my template. http://unbouncepages.com/powers-gym-fitness-club-template/ I was working on 3rd and now i am disappointed and i have stopped the work. I have good experience in designing and development and i think themeforest should check again there review process. I am not understanding themeforest quality.

Please understand that templates approved in the past does not dictate approvals for the future… We are always trying to offer our buyers the best of the best and try to push authors in that direction. This is important to Envato and Unbounce as well. Please also remember that a good landing page should not include main level menus/nav. Besides going against best practices, Unbounce as a platform is not set up to support multi-page navigation and this is done for a reason. Please see here. http://get.unbounce.com/envato-ccd-guide/

There have been some Unbounce templates that use navigation and have made it through review but we are in the process of contacting these authors to have them removed.

Finally, you are not alone, many an author new and old have experience rejections… You can choose to adapt and improve, or give up, the choice is yours. My advice is to submit your template to the “Item Discussion” thread and solicit feedback from your peers. http://themeforest.net/forums/topic/item-discussion/26 instead of in this thread.

Keep trying! Unbounce is a great platform and worth the extra effort :)

i am not talking about old templates. i am talking about this competition templates and i also want that Enavto provides best quality to there customers. navigation is not for multi pages it is for one page. Can you check by clicking this feature is providing by unbounce.

Thanks

Yes, I understand. We will accept that type of navigation as it moves to anchor points. Please post your template to the “Item Discussion” thread and solicit feedback from your peers. http://themeforest.net/forums/topic/item-discussion/26 instead of in this thread.

Thanks and best of luck.

Hello There,
Just wanted to ask, if our file has already been approved within the contest period of time, and if we update it with more features for categories like “Best Bundle”, will it get considered then for that category prize or not ?
Hi Josh, Can you help me out with this ? Thanks.

Yes I believe so. You will want to re-post a link to the updated item in this thread and probably should resubmit the form as well.

Ohh dear it’s 1 month contest (4 weeks) but minimum approval time is 4 days. Would it count if item is uploaded on contest time is for example soft-rejected or still on moderation but contest is now out? Example contest ended on 8 April, approved only 9 or 10. Or Soft-rejected on 8 April but approved on 12 April? Would those will be included?
If you have the files in queue, then it will be considered for the contest. But if its soft rejected, It might not. Ask for the Staff Reply too.
@Josh? Hi can you help us understand how it works? Send before contest end within few hours? Soft-rejected few days before, but accepted after? Just accepted after but uploaded on-time? What kinda else situation might be? I mean how would it be accepted in general. Thanks.

If you submit an item before contest end and it is soft rejected before the contest end and you remedy the issues and it gets accepted after the contest end then you are good.

If you submit an item before contest end and it is soft rejected before the contest end and you remedy the issues and it gets soft rejected again after the contest ends, then you will not qualify.

If you submit an item before contest end and it is soft rejected after the contest ends you will not qualify.

If you submit an item before contest ends and it gets approved after the contest ends you will qualify. Hope that helps.

Better to focus on our own items. Bringing negative attention to another authors design doesn’t really add to this thread or contest.

Thanks, Josh
