to the themers and those who put serious and hard work into these themes. Is it me or has the quality of themes gone down since the release of Tiger. It seems to me that there really isn't many really great themes out and the releases of themes have slowed down. Maybe I am working too much and I am starting to get delusional, perhaps even playing too much of the ol Ludwig Van. I am just looking for some more input on this matter. Any responses are welcome.

Well I think Max is probably busy with his job, maybe the other big guys are the same. Hope to see updates to COTL's stuff at least.

(I'm working on a new theme and Niqu 1.1 but not had the mental energy to do any work on them of late. )

The reason is probably people that might have wanted to theme stepped in here and saw the reactions themers got.

Or they don't want their themes ripped off, so they just keep it to themselves, and trusted individuals, like I have done on many occasions.

There are interesting themes coming out, just not from the usual suspects. The mod forum at macthemes is taking off and more and more themers (such as Gerrit) are trying new things.

This is a computer-generated message and needs no signature.

If it was just a simple update to Tiger it'd be under two weeks, but it's not. You'll see.

The master is still working: for usability
and style he can't be beaten.

But DJ's 'Aesthetic Groove' looks promising :)

Hmm...

I love and used X-Metal 2 with Panther all the time, but now with Tiger, the finder toolbar buttons are messed up and revert to aqua. Oddly, only some of the buttons display as aqua. The Back/Forward and Window style (Icon/list/column) are aqua while the actions and path buttons are fine.


I'm trying to find the resources for changing them in ThemePark but am having a bit of trouble. Anyone able to lend to helpful info?
MUCH appreciated.

To dislike Sinatra is a sign of highly questionable taste. To dislike the Beatles is a serious character flaw.
