No offense Jim...but why are you posting your stuff in the forums all the time now? These should be uploaded to the galleries like everyone else here and people will find them there. I think your pushing this getting seen/recognized thing a bit to far now...then again maybe everyone else should do this...ya think?
Steve, I don't do this "all the time", and usually, when I do, it is just a WIP thread. Nothing wrong with that.
That said, I see Master's Ads in here all the time so what's the big deal?
Thirdly, the rank of Journeyman affords certain perks, listed below from the WC rules.
A handful of "super-citizens" will be at this class. These are people who are significant contributors to the community. The honorific "Sir" or "Lady" is appended to the front of their name. If you're a journeyman, then you are one biggest contributors to WinCustomize.com. The difference between a Journeyman and an Apprentice is that a Journeyman is contributing significantly to WinCustomize in particular as well as the skinning community in general. A Journeymen's skin is automatically made available upon uploading. It does not have to go through moderation first. As a result, only the most trusted users will become Journeymen because of this power. They also have the ability to post news items to the front page of WinCustomize.com
