I'm sorry, but I just don't like the fact of getting a rate hike because "we are now offering $60 in free skins a year". I mean what if I don't want the subscriber skins.
I have to say that I feel the same way. I have never downloaded any of the themes that have been offered for free as a subscriber. The main reason is that I don't use all the stuff. I only use WB, and icons. I like a totally clean desktop. All of my "stuff" that I need is on my Desktop Sidebar, and that is on autohide, as is my taskbar. So, I guess I have to decide whether a $10 hike in price is worth it for me. In the 4 years that I have been a member/subscriber here, I have downloaded less than 2 gig of skins, with most of that downloaded before I became a subscriber. I mainly got the wincustomize subscription, so I could have a personal site here. I guess I have a dilemma here...I have Object Desktop premium, which I will have to keep renewing if I want to continue making blinds. That has gone up in price as well. I am now on a fixed income, and I am not sure if I can afford both Object Desktop and Wincustomize. (
