The design of your website is identical to the design of SSD. The system also runs using the exact same method. I define a "rip" as somebody using something that he/she did not create. You did not come up with that design. SSD has been using it for months. You openly stated that you've only had your site open for a few days.
I'm not trying to say that you're the one who applied the design, and I apologize if you took my statement as "You are a ripper, it's all your fault." I'm just saying that the design is not a custom design, it was stolen from another one. Again, I'm not saying that you're responsible for that.
Regardless of who copied it, it's still a ripped design. That alone is enough to stop your site from being accepted. It's a moot point to discuss who's at fault, so let's not go there. You won't be banned or punished or whatever. Just apply a new design. That's all I'm trying to say.
You've got to be kidding me. So, all this time, SSD has just been using a modified skin of the drupal default? I had no idea... I seriously apologize, then. SSD has been around for so long, I never thought something like this would happen. I'm more shocked than you are. I swear they said their CMS was custom-coded. Based on that, it was pretty obvious that your site had to be a copy. Usually, CMS scripts have a copyright at the bottom. Neither SSD nor your site had that.
Well, again, I apologize. I'm more disgusted at SSD than anybody else, right now. I'd suggest putting a link to the drupal system's page at the bottom of yours. I will promise you right now that I will not be the only one to make this mistake.
Unfortunately your site is not the type of affiliate site we're looking for. We prefer to stick within the "design site" field (though exceptions are made). Also, mini-banners are supposed to be 88x31.
Hidden Leaf: I'll get back to you with the decision within the week hopefully. Thanks for your patience.
