    Hello guys, I recently made a grid theme and was planning to sell on theme forest, unfortunately they rejected my submission, they didn't give me a clear enough reason of why my theme was rejected. Could any of you give me feedbacks? thanks!

    Because it is not original. because they already have a lot of grid based themes, because it is nothing special

    I'm not sure with this because, in tumblr their are different variable such as {Asker}, which may cause anonymous.... do you think its part of the reason? thanks!

    You know some of the lorum ipsum text (third panel down on the left) has the word "shit" in it, right?

    My guess would be "attention to detail" and "lack of professional judgement". Your theme hasn't been elevated, creative market has been devalued. Who submits a theme to the general public for sale with the word "shit" in the lorum ipsum?

    Did you have an 11 year old working for you? Are you 11?

    How is it that I could spot this in about 30 seconds, and you can't see it and you BUILT the theme?

    Personally, I like the theme especially the simplistic-elegant approach in the main section. The header could use a little more flair though. Anyway, congrats on your submission getting accepted. I've seen your tumblr before and I liked that too. More power to your designs.

    Thanks man, Now I'm trying a different style of design with Magnet to figure out what works better for me personally, I think since I started making themes, I've changed a lot in style wise.
