I'm still around, I've been downloading some skins and just waiting for things to settle down with the site before I upload some new suites. 

There have been alot of nice themes uploaded to the gallery libraries by the skinners in the community so once folks get use to the new site they will be downloading again.

 I'm not getting out of my foxhole until the shooting stops.

Seriously, I've been busy at work but I stop by as often as I can to visit my "sick friend."

I'm job hunting, so most of my time is spent trying to find gainful employment.

I'm present but don't know if I've been accounted for.

Thing is, WG, a lot of regulars moved on and the forums all but died in the arse yonks ago... long before the new site.  A handful of us have tried to keep it going, but it's an uphill battle when the majority stays away in droves.

It seems to be the general state of affairs in the skinning world. I haven't been around all that long, but I've witnessed the disappearance of a lot of people who were fixtures here, and traffic has been down at a couple of other places the last few months.

It was quite noticeable before the site change over I am afraid.  My fear has always been that overbearing "proper decorum" would be the death of vibrancy for the site. But that is just one man's opinion.

Kenwas : I know what You mean and my '...' post was a long one according to what Stardock and WC have become over the years and how things go miserably wrong at the moment according apps and the site but then after reflecting it again I found that all I will get from that is all those unable to have a good discussion because of their brown noses or rose-red glasses (and always confusing 'discussion' with 'struggle') calling me a 'whiner' and 'bitcher' again or me being demoted (again). No thanks...

It takes a lot of devotion and even masochism nowadays to being a loyal follower here.

All sites seem to have slowed down except for dA, I've never gotten into the forums there, but there's alot of visiting going on between people's homepages and group pages. It's definitely different here now.

People go away on DA also, you may not notice that unless you are *watching* them.  And I agree with everyone that alot of sites are down as far as members and visitors.  Times change.  Almost anyone can make a decent wallpaper, take a perfect photograph , with all the new easy to use programs.  I guess it is the same with windowblinds....I never understood why someone would say they love a skin, then recolor it once they have it. To me, the color is also what grabbed my attention in the first place.  And about Wincustomize, it will just take awhile for the glitches and such to be worked out. But I agree with what Ken said 

My fear has always been that overbearing "proper decorum" would be the death of vibrancy for the site. But that is just one man's opinion.
...and one womans opinion also...

 

Well that is all, now I'll go and get my coffee!!

I'm still here, but....  I don't see the since or point in trying to help out fellow users if other users want to make others look bad, or make their answers seem out of the ball park.  I won't go into details, but I'm sure they will read my statement here... and perhaps they may even leave me a note to this... who knows... ?

I personally have been creating dreams since this I first found this site, I used to have a lot of my dreams posted on the Wincustomize site which I removed about little over a year ago just after my Karma up and left... , I now however have my dreams posted on my own web site.
