Basj i left for a combination of reasons:
a. Unfair treatment of many members here, like yourself.
b. Existense of the Ratings System and Top 100 Lists.
c. Way limited members interaction.
d. Elitisism tendensies of certain members.
e. Too much administration intervention.
f. Site issues.
g. Expensive subscription.
But i don't keep any bad feelings for the site. I still come back from time to time. Alas my new home is much warmer and humane.
PS: I know how to make all kinds of skins, themes (WB, DX, IP, WMP, Winamp and more), i already have many drawings for skins in my scetchbook, i do have the abilities to use Photoshop or any other program to make them happen (i even engaged in DX Scripting), i just don't have the appettite or time to do so.
