I think rules made by envato are not for all.
In my experience here i saw that my themes are soft rejected because of simple issues like: request to hide redux ads from plugin, or bottom menu to be with drop down in up (who will use there menu drop down, in footer line) i tested themes from elites, new themes that don’t respect this rules and are aprouved… Why? I want rules to be for all, no problem rules are made to be respected. But by all.
I dream at one day when all will respect new standards and rules made by wp and envato…
No offense… I don’t want to be rude or something like this.
