At least if we wanted to try it out. We could start building themes around various art styles. IE. De Stihl, Cubism, realism, etc. Just an idea -- ~Michael http://ridleytx.structed.net (for now) http://www.michaelbox.net (eventually) ___

I think I'm going to agree with Jakub. I downloaded the echo set from yum last night for F7 and they're looking good. I won't bother pointing out icons that appear blurry on my monitor, cause I figure most of them are already in the works. On 9/27/07, Jakub 'Livio' Rusinek [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Not trying to attack you because you are trying to help and I feel want the best for the icon sets and whatnot, but saying I don't like them makes it sound like you're trying to get everyone to tailor the sets to your preference. There is a difference between this and constructive criticism. That

I honestly like the last one that Mairin did with the rays of light. When I first saw it, the impression I had was that of a ghosted roller coaster track, taking us up and off the wallpaper, as if going into the infinite abyss above. In a lot of ways that's what the chosen theme is about anyway.
