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!!
