After the numbers?
Thursday, July 10, 2008 by PuterDudeJim | Discussion: Community
This may be totally unnecessary, but I need to say it. There has been a lot going on in the forums lately about who skinned what, where they got the images, etc.
Something was said about "download whores" that I feel needs my comment. First I would point out that 80% of the last 30 or so DX themes are mine. Some are better than others, some seem mass produced. I am not the best at what I do, that's for sure. But I am trying to get better at it, and trying to do more original work lately. There are several masters out there that have helped me along the way. This is greatly appreciated.
Now, back to my point. I am trying to generate interest in DesktopX. I am not trying to garner downloads, not trying to "earn" karma. I want to inspire more people to try to create DesktopX themes. There seems to be a real lack of interest in DX that I hate to see because it is the main part of OD Ultimate that I love. I would hate to see DX go the route of Object Bar, tab launchpad, and some of the other almost dead apps.
I do not feel that anyone has pointed me out, or bashed me in any way. I just know that it could look like I am after the download numbers, when all I really want is more attention/participation with DesktopX.
