Im sorry, but I disagree with you, in this place you dont get where you are by kiss assing someone, its by nothing but sheer hard work, serving the community, helping others who need it, being respectful and earning your place, I am still doing it, and I am currently watching neone6 do the same. For a citizen who has stormed to the front page in under 30 days with his new wb Cybergoth, is a true feat in itself, and he dosent kiss anyones ass. Neone6 has become an asset to this community, he helps where he can and offers fresh and exciting cursors and windowblinds. He is another out of the box skinner, and boy do we need those! And as for the flaws you mentioned in his skin, every out of the box design is going to have a few glitches here and there, its not easy to make frames that awsome and not have them roll up into a perfect neat little square, this just isnt possible. As for the animation, alot of time and effort is put into animations, I guess people dont realize this.
If you walked the journey from citizen to master, you would have an entirely different opinion about things.... but you are entitled to your opinion. Not everybody likes Spencers picks, but either way, every week I think he does one heck of a job choosing from thousands of submissions.
