For the 2nd time in a row, my template is hard-rejected for lack of quality.
I have no idea of what’s wrong with it. Please, could you tell me if you see anything to improve it?
To create this template, I followed some guidelines:
I chose a theme and stayed focus on it: pulse. A lot of elements are pulsing : preloading screen, some hover elements, buttons, menu links,…
My goal was to stand out from others template with this idea.
I tried to create an easy customizable system: several variants (carousel, parallax, video,…) like most of templates which inspired me, a color picker (inspired by Passion template) and a light/dark switcher (inspired by RockoX template). Anyway, the buyer can easily duplicate colors files css and define is own colors.
I tried to put some “cool” features and stuffs: a smooth scroll to top, a scrollspy, I designed error messages for contact form, and I used a lot of animations to make a template which seems “alive”.
To choose fonts, I read several articles (especially this article in 3 parts). I chose the combo Georgia / Poppins: Georgia is described as a “safe serif typefaces” and a “web safe font” in the article, and Poppins is a Google Font chosen by Daniels template too.
Of course, my template is fully responsive and totally cross-browsers compatible (Firefox, Safari, Opera, Chrome, Edge, IE10+,…). It is “W3C valid HTML” too.
After my first hard-reject, I came here on the forum and read other topics of rejected templates. I understood that one page templates are really commons, but if my “pulse” idea isn’t enough, why my template is rejected for “lack of quality” and not for “too similar to existing items”? I would like to keep my template “serious”, of course I could add more originality, but I don’t want to create a fantasy template, the balance is hard to find
If you have any idea of what’s wrong with my template, please let me know. I would love to improve my template, and myself.
Thank you in advance, and have a nice day!
