Bebi: What exactly do you do here anyway besides insert snide remarks? Do you actually perform a function? Wait you art directed one time right? lol. Was it like... "put the pink thing over there"? I'm sure you were a big help. No doubt.
Aww Jeff, so mean, you know I wanna have your babies you're just so awesome.
But yes...I collaborated on a Master Skin. Probably because he knew I would give honest feedback, I just have that kind of no-nonsense attitude (and have been told I have an eye for style and design, shrug). Am I a skinner? God no. Do I know how to make anything decent in PS? I'd be kidding myself. But do I know the basics of how a Windowblind is put together? Sure. I've tweaked enough in SKS to find my way around.
As for my function...I'm the "Grand Poobah of the Wiki." Yeah...for the past 4 years or so, on 2 different sites, I've been acting as support, helping people with stuff (IPB in the old days, skinning now). I've had to put up with a LOT of crap from n00bish twit kids over the years when I've just been offering help. Hell, in the past week I've been helping 3 people with their WordPress blogs because I'm familiar with it and they're just getting started (all this on top of my own). I like writing tutorials and explaining how to do all this fun customization stuff geared for the newbs. Why? Because I enjoy having a wicked looking desktop and want to help others feel the joy of it. "Those who can't do...teach," so that's what I try to do.
