Hi Nils.
I'm a 'hobbyist' as far as font creation counts, so my software advice is probably best ignored (I use Illustrator to draw the base glyphs and FontForge for everything else). I know I should do the drawing in FontForge, but Illustrator is my 'comfort zone'…
More useful resources to look at (an extensive 'course' in type design) (a whole lot of resources) (a guide to what not to do)
Good luck

Hi Nils.
Firstly, how long ago did you submit the font? It's not an immediate process between submission and acceptance, so if it was a recent submission, you may just have to be a little patient. If it's not accepted, it's likely to be a technical issue, rather than an aesthetic reason. I think the admins give feedback when a font is rejected, but someone may want to jump in here to confirm that…
My advice on getting feedback. Firstly friends, family and peers and colleagues. perhaps to seek critiques of your work in progress. If you do submit for a critique, just basic upper and lowercase glyphs and numerals. Maybe also for critiques.
Also a rigorous self testing regime. Generate and install the font yourself and test it to destruction in every app it's likely to be used in (Word, Pages, InDesign, Illustrator, PS etc).
I've found this very useful; for testing metrics and so forth online at a glance (without the hassle of installing).
You could post here for critiques and queries, but remember, if you have a tech query, be clear about the software you are using (Glyphs, FontLab, Fontforge etc.) so peeps can help if they can.

It might not be that simple. According to a quick 'google'
"The front photograph was of lettering on the marquee in front of the Leicester Square Theatre in London." which means this may well be 1970s woodtype or perspex type, and there may not be a digitised version of it out there.
This has a similar feel to it (but is NOT an ID)

Not an exact match either, but 'in the ballpark' for Crash numbering style fonts…

Not the font, limited only to numerals, but could do the trick.
