I have 3 WP themes in soft rejection at the moment. Both PSD Approved HTML
I got a following reviewer message and soft rejected.
Message from the review
Unfortunately your submission WordPress Theme isn’t quite ready for ThemeForest. Here’s some feedback from our Review team on why it couldn’t be accepted.
Unfortunately ‘WordPress’ has higher standards in terms of aesthetics. An approved design in other categories does not guarantee an approval under ThemeForest’s WordPress category. Your design has an interesting starting concept, but it needs significant improvements in terms of aesthetics and attention to details.
As higher quality items become available in the marketplace, approval requirements will increase to maintain appropriate marketplace quality.
While I’d be able to provide feedback as to how to get this approved, I can only do after it has crossed a certain threshold, quality wise. I’m sorry to say this isn’t there yet.
After making the required fixes or improvements, please edit your submission at.
Even the PSD and HTML has very good sales and people are demanding the WP on comments and emails.
