Master Skins

Tuesday, June 2, 2020 by kennyg1944 | Discussion: Object Desktop

I've been a loyal Stardock customer for a very long time. Why after I pay for Object Desktop most of the new skins are Master Skins. This means I'm paying again..

Masterskins have nothing to do with Stardock. They are produced by users who have earned the privilege to sell their skins here on Wincustomize. A WB skin is a very time consuming effort and artists should be compensated for their time! Besides, there are plenty of free skins available ( I personally have uploaded 6 just this year).

When you buy a car, do you complain to the car manufacturer about the fact that your road has so many potholes?

A slightly better analogy.... 

When you buy a car, do you complain to the car manufacturer about the fact that you need to pay for petrol as well...

#1.  Master Skinners do not work for Stardock, but Stardock provides them a way to sell their work. So...

#2.  Stardock takes roughly 43% of all sales of Master Skins for allowing us to sell on their site. So...

#3.  As 2of3 said, there are plenty of free skins here on the site. So...

#4.  You don't have to buy a Master Skin if you don't want to, and...

#5.  I personally give about 90% of my sales income to the poor and needy. So...

#6. Other Master Skinners I am sure need the income from sales, especially now during this pandemic,  some I know need it desperately. So...

#7. Please be kind.   

 

Oh, and this question about Master Skins has been addressed on this site many, many, many times already.
