If you feel I must say something, then I would say that I did not like any of the graphics in the skin based on the screenshot. They appeared lifeless, dull and to me did not reflect any apparent real effort in creating them. Again, my opinion. Now does this put everyone at ease? Does it make everyone feel so much better? I doubt it.
The issue is not that you might say what I quote here...it is that you determined it your role to decide what is and what is not 'Master quality'.
I must not have got the memo, but at last check it was/is Stardock who determines what is and is not going to be accepted as a Master skin [for sale/distribution via Wincustomize].
Similarly there has been comments [by some Masters and others] that certain Masters should not have been promoted to that level...again second-guessing the site's owners/administrators.
People are promoted to whatever level in response to their involvement/contribution/devotion to the site and its community.
To disagree with ANY such promotion, whatever the level is simply unacceptable.
The comment on Kitty's skin would have been entirely acceptable if it was "there are better Master skins than this one"....because at least it concedes/accepts the skin's status.....and Karmagirl quantified the distinction referring to the lack of vers for other OS's.
John, if comments and commenters in this thread are seemingly ganging up against you...you don't take your bat and ball and go....you respond to the debate, afterall it was at your instigation...
And again I repeat, a static screenshot is never a perfect indication of a skin's quality....appearance - yes, quality - no.
I have always argued that - for more than a decade...coming from the Litestep [shell theme] fraternity...where interactivity and animation and FUNCTION are even MORE important...
