Christopher -

I had a quick look at your themes and asking for six to eight weeks is a
very long time to meet the minimum guidelines that would be required. Also
consider there is a very good possibility newer guideline criteria may be
introduced during that time frame.

Given you feel it would take six to eight weeks to update your themes I can
offer only a few suggestions at this time:

   1. Leave everything as is and address the themes at your proposed
   schedule (credit link update only will not be accepted)
   2. Address the theme requirements immediately and update (recommended)
   3. Have the themes suspended until you can address and update them (not

Item 1 is what I am reading you want to do; item 2 is most likely your best
course of action; and, item 3 is a possibility but personally I would not
consider it.


PS: The original replies should have included the "mailing-list". EAC
