@ThemeWarriors I didn’t want to sound rude, you do have very good themes, and with some extra work this could get far better. It’s ok and I really like themes that target segments, but minimal funcionality and design doesn’t mean slacking. And there are things that could really be improved in the theme that are vital for a premium theme (with premium here I mean paid), like:

  • The jump that the menu does when scrolling all the way to top I really don’t get it.
  • The fonts choosen on most of the theme
  • Small margin at the bottom of the footer showing the background, would be better if the footer ended with white
  • Menu is very poor, should at least include the logo when you scroll down
  • Shortcodes are really poor, taken from bootstrap and pasted

There are a lot of things you’ve done great, like the logo looks great, the blog looks awesome as well, it’s a shame that you didn’t take a better care on the other components and ui of the theme.

Sorry to be so critic but hope you take this as something to improve rather than a negative thing.

Agree with @GJ-Designs and honestly I think your file wasn’t ready to be accepted yet. There are a lot of design flaws and just doesn’t seem a premium template like every theme should in here. You guys talk about quantity and quality, but in fact this is a good example of quantity over quality that envato should prevent.

When you get a hard reject, take your time to be critic about your work. Improve. There’s a reason behind rejections.

I didn’t thinking too much, not even bother about new badges, but recently I found that it could be cool if there is badge like…”This author have more than 50, 100, 200 items in portfolio”. Maybe it have no sense at all but in other hand it could motivate authors to make more good selling items and earn one more cool badge :D

Not a good idea to incentive authors to thrive for quantity instead of quality :p

I’ll also have to say that the fairest condition would be that the support would be paid and optional for authors. Either you pay the small price and get NO support at all, or you pay additionally a support fee and get all the support you need. That way it would be transparent to authors and buyers. Upholding all the support that is needed now for the items is already a joke for the price that people pay for them. IMO even the current prices are only ok if there is absolutely no support at all. And buyers should know this, it is the main reason the prices are so low. I sometimes spend hours helping people getting my item the way they wanted to make sure they won’t give me a bad rating. Considering the money I get from my item (7-8 $) I make constant losses. I only have few sales but I don’t even want to imagine what it is like to have like ten times of my sales. If you want to make the marketplace sustainable for authors, charge buyers for the support.

Precisely what I think, we already give the support, it’s a matter of getting some return from it to make it sustainable.
