Tell ya what, WeatherBound....when I read the title "Skinning is stupid", I was gonna come in here breathing fire and rip strips off ya.
So glad to see you're not anti-skinning....otherwise we'd have come ta verbal blows.
Thing is, WeatherBound, it doesn't really matter if others think it's stupid or not, so long as you're happy, content in what you're doing and harming no-one. Besides, if you upload your skins to WC and other sites, someone somewhere is going to like them and appreciate what you've done....but first and foremost, skin for yourself, and all the rest, the "great" "wonderful" comments, is a bonus.
|They are clueless. They don't get the concept of it all.|
They cant appreciate " skinning " because they have no idea the amount of work that goes into the making of a skin.
Ah, but not all non-skinners are oblivious to the time, effort and talent that's required to make a skin....even a 'not so good' one. I put a great deal of time and effort into attempts that weren't fit for uploading to WC's trashcan, let alone the galleries, so I do not consider myself to be a skinner, but I'm surely aware of what's required to create a skin of any note. Guess that's why I've never put in a personal request for icons/cursors even, much less a full blown suite with the works, which would require months out of someone's life....just don't think it's right to impose on people like that.
...love your sense of humour.
| But then, and if she reads this I am dead, I think of her in the bathroom in her robe, doing her make-up or hair and singing 'As Long As He Needs Me' from 'Oliver' at the top of her lungs along with the TV in the bedroom and I realize...it's not what we have in common or not that has to do with why I love her. It's because I love to surround myself with a lot of goofy stuff.|
Actually, my wife and I have quite alot in common, and she doesn't mind me customising the desktop, but still, you've given me food for thought...if I can get up the cahoneys to comment on her more eccentric ways, as payback for the many times I got criticised for surrounding myself with all manner of goofy stuff...thinking it, even.
Oh, and no need to worry about reading the divorce notice...our love for eachother is unconditional and all embracing, never to be torn asunder. We take snipes at eachother all the time (in fun, that is).
Now back to 'skinning is stupid'.....skinning animals purely for their furs, now that's stupid, totally unnecessary.
Skinning desktops? Well that's 100% necessary (cos the 'Fisher Price look' of XP is abominable after 5 seconds) and there should be more of it....more and more power to our skinners.
