Its apparent some of you have no idea how much thought, effort, time, work, stress, sleeplessness, numb hands and arms, skill, learning, coffee, and oh.. did i mention time.... goes into a well thought out and manufactured skin.
or.. that a LOT of these app makers copy paste code from their own, or others apps, mod it s little, and sell it, over and over and over.
If you feel that my, or others work is not worth it.... then..
Since i was the only one comparing a skin to an app it’s obvious that this whole or part of comment is directed at me?
While i said im going to stay away from posting you had to bring this up?
While you provided me some options:
Option 1. Whine about it. Well im not whining about it but you do with writing such a comment and providing these options
don’t like me comparing things ?
Option 2. Make your own skins. Well i did and still do -But that is a hobby
Option 3. Use the free skins, there are THOUSANDS of them I do that also. Now that’s a good option i can accept that one.
Option 4. Whine about it some more. NO Sir you need to stop getting personal i was simply comparing two things.
Not sure what you wrote in Option 5 but it was either very offensive according to
John asked me to proof read his post...and all I can say is that when I got to "Option 5"....well let's just say I'll be going to therapy for awhile...I had no idea someone could swear like that. I don't think even crayola has colors to match that colorful language.
or it included nothing important at all...
Final Answer. LEAVE... Please...just go somewhere else.. back button, google other skin sites...don't look back
I, personally don't want your money or business.
Seriously? I’ve been hanging out on Wincustomize for quite a while now...And honestly i don’t intend to leave but with such a statement im tempted!
this shows that you have not even given the little trouble to think about what I've actually written, before you got started getting offensive.
I simply understood the perspective of a customer that Pixel brought up and that’s what motivated me posting in the first place.
A customer will look at the skins price tag and will compare it to the price of the app in this case windowblinds or OD.
The skin: let’s face it isn’t something very cheap since you get a whole app for that price. A Stardock APP
As you mentioned some app developers only modify code or copy and paste...
Whether they copy and paste code ( im sure not everyone is doing that ) where is the difference between them or me creating a skin based on diamond?
It is basically the same, using existing code and pixels modifying them based on an idea. Did i miss something unless the concept that is needed to do both.
Never said that your work or LS work isn’t worth it read closely
While i do pay the price for a skin that i want , like many pay for an iPhone simply because they want to have it even though the shit is overpriced.
I WAS STATING THAT STUFF IS SOMETIMES OVERPRICED BUT YOU BUY IT ANYWAY
, but others are not willing to pay that much, it was said that premium skins only have so many downloads, without the intend to get down on the same level ,
let me ask you
is it not better to have 99 cents from over 15k + illegal downloads than ... 120 premium 5 dollars ones. Its simple math. 5USD*120= 600 USD
or 15000*0.99= 14850 USD now subtract your SD fee where do you have more cash left?
Again just a thought.
Im aware that not all illegal downloaders will buy the skin for 99 cents but the chance is actually bigger to make more money and to have more downloads on premium skins that is what was is behind the comparision of an app and a skin. There was no attitude behind it.
