'Helios WB' - WIP

a look ahead..

Thursday, February 12, 2009 by vStyler | Discussion: Community

New Master skin I am working on.. Really going after a classicly styled, ultra useable, ergonomic look and feel with this one.

Inspired by my VXP skin, then took on its own more modernized direction...

It's all about finesse...

 

I will post progress as usual.

(screeny is half a screen, cropped)

Linda... I appreciate your support and yes your one of this community's most supportive members, This theme will be along at some point, sooner or later, thats about as much as I can say.

I'm sure Messiah wasn't intentionally trying to make you feel bad in anyway.. he's a good guy too. Promise

you know Igspence, I have a neighbour....who I thought for a coupla years...didn't care for me....he was very short...and abrupt...not rude....but no small talk...or little niceties in our brief conversations.  One day..I spotted a letter addressed to him....his title was Brigadier  (retired)....it fell into place...he did not dislike me....it was his manner...his military training...short, sharp...to the point...no waffling....  I then stopped to observe..he was like this with everybody.

messiah is ex military....and I have noticed his manner to also often be...short..concise...to the point....and shouldn't be taken as rudeness...or even being an ass......they are just trained...when they communicate....not to mess around......(no pun intended)

Just look at him... No need to be close to see that He DOES look more like a monkey than a donkey.

We can all be asses but you sure seem to be a little too far up Vstylers ass sometimes. Let him speak for himself. John doesn't need goons.

Golly, the mighty NT dispensing his superior wisdom.

End the bickering now.  It's ridiculous how a simple thread like this goes downhill for no reason.

My bad man. I can be an ass sometimes. Sorry.

Why the need to step in and play parent?

We are adults. We can discuss things maturely most of the time.  

or let  things fester. That always works......

I understand that and making enemies is not my goal but why ignore the mob mentality that happens around here on occasion?

A respected member was harrassed this morning. It's time someone said something. I don't want to be hated by anyone but I also have no trouble speaking my mind.

I have discussed this in private before with the party most effected by the behavior.

What about that is confusing?

I simply do not see how this five word sentence could be construed as harrassing. The person who asked it apologized anyway so it should be time to move on.

Btw,NT we aren't a mob,we're sheep,remember?

Baaaack to the topic: What happened to the screenshot?

No biggie. I was just drawing attention to the elitist fanboy crap that causes WC'ers a bad rep. Back to my cave for another 4 months is fine with me. I was content there.  

No need to stress over it anymore. Just watch out for it it all.

 

Take care monkeh, hopefully we can someday be better off because of it.

I don't think he refers to this particular incident?

Anyways, I've seen the "mob"-thing on several forums. I think it has to do with cultural hegemony (look it up, it's a tricky word ). I would think it's unavoidable on any busy forum of medium size or more. It needs to be handled delicately, or it'll kill the community...

It's unlikely to be 'cultural hegemony'....but more simply individual ego, but yes, it's 'handle with care'.

Unfortunately when 'someone says something' it's an open opportunity for someone else to also say something.....and if it's not a 'contradiction'....it's an argument.

Sometimes silence is its own reward....

I agree with that statement.  What are we if we can't learn from our mistakes?  I can learn from mine, and I have.  I do spout off sometimes without really thinking it through all the way first.  I am sorry if I hurt lgspence in any way.  That was not my intention at all, but after reading my post, and trying to step away from me, I can see how that could have been taken.  I'm humbled.

Well, I'd say human, but I may be wrong. See this article.
