    @ Chaotic Buddhist - lol...that's a mod of mine of your Satin-Alloy Safari.
    It's effing beautiful. Well done.
    I wish I could do black icons like you guys can.

    Clean wall
    That's really pleasant to look at.

    To all those responding to Toolysenegal post; I don't think his comment was meant to be rude, but unfortunately he probably worded it wrong. He probably should have said, "Would you possibly be able to make the blue a little lighter and if possible remove the brown from it as well? I apologize for being particular; if it's going to be an inconvenience, please don't worry about it.".

    Whatever the case may be, I thought a few days ago we decided we weren't going to 'chew out' anybody because we felt they were being rude or incompetent. In all honesty, I understood what he was asking for; but not everyone talks/posts the same. We all need to take a step back and think about what they possibly could have been trying to say and think wisely before posting a response. And what I don't understand is that how others continue to make a remark about a post that happened pages ago...it was addressed, leave it alone. We give those who's first language isn't English a break, why can't we give those who don't completely understand how to post on a message board a break as well. Some will respond and say they didn't mean to lash out, they were upset about something else and took it out on him. That kind of reaction is probably equal to the immaturity you believe the other person you're commenting about has. We've given members who have been more rude than anything a break and continue to help them...and this guy didn't post any rude remarks towards anybody...but apparently deserves a negative response as some have given.

    I may just be wasting my time typing all this, we'll fall right back into the groove of being negative to newcomers or those that aren't familiar. I hope we don't, this thread was once a helpful and peaceful place of individuals willing to help one another...no matter who they are.


    Where I agree with you on principle, this is the same guy that PMed me on several occasions asking me to ZIP my ENTIRE themes directory and send it to him "to make it easier".....
    I agree there is a language issue and this was certainly a result of that, I also happen to question his intent based on my interaction with him.
    Cooler heads should prevail however. I know that's strange coming from me, but when the grouchy old man thinks we're getting out of hand again, we might be.

    What I would like people to take away from all of the crap in the last few days is, these devices are as individual as we are and that is what makes Jaku and themes in general so cool. We have the opportunity to really express a small bit of ourselves through these.
    I actively explore that and I would encourage our newer members to do the same.
    Don't contact me asking for my entire setup. I've been piecing this together for months and in some cases years. It's nice, I know, but so is Bryan's and Frog Man's and Bird Man's and everybody else's for that matter.
    Find what you like and run with it.

    Just because someone's SpringBoard doesn't look like what you would do doesn't make it wrong. Just because they use icons that replace Jaku stock icons doesn't mean they shouldn't be using Jaku in the first place.

    I have one icon on my home page that is stock Jaku and it's only because I haven't figured out what I want to do with it yet. Nobody gets after me because all of my icons are swapped out. There is no reason to do that to anyone.

    We should all understand there are language barriers and not everyone speaks English as a first language. I recommend we try to first discerne the intent of the post rather than reacting and assuming someone is being a ****.

    And for the newbies.... You guys and gals need to understand something very clearly. None of the guys making icons or other UI elements in this group get paid for doing this. It's for the love of the theme and modding in general and we do this to help.
    Demanding things, constantly badgering us via PM and just showing no appreciation for the hard work they (and I) do is a real solid way to get it to stop.

    We aren't on Will's payroll. This isn't our job. We don't actually owe you anything, but we want to give. Don't expect help, ask for it, and then just say "thanks". It's just decent to do so, you know?

    I sort of consider the inner core of this group to be friends of mine by now and although I would never presume to speak for them, I think they'll probably agree with me on this.

    While I somewhat agree with Bankai's statement, in this case, he posted two requests for the same icon within a one page span and then didn't even give a simple "Thanks for taking the time to make an icon for which you have no use for but would help me complete my Jaku icons...".
    I totally agree with you that he wasn't very thankful and patient when requesting these icons, but in the end we don't need result to the same behavior. There's always a better way to respond to these situations without resorting to being rude to one another.


    i love the wall... can you share it ! both modded and original
    sorry about my English
    I don't have the originals (at least I don't remember which ones because it was multiple walls); but here is the wall I made/modded:

    Hey that's kind of kick @$$. I don't collect many dark walls, but the texture makes it interesting and as such, it's in my collection.

    Nice, thanks !

    @chaotic buddhist : I did the same. And I usually don't keep dark walls either. But I need to say Blacksquatch's irritated retina display makes great wallpapers.

    Nope, its a mod of the stock Jaku tweetbot. NFR, sorry.

    Haha yes, sometimes my irritated display displays correctly, especially sharp, dark textures. It doesn't artifact icons which is inconsistent... but whatever. Glad you dudes like it!

    Think you could point me in the direction of the texture you have on it? I'm not asking for yours, but I am interested in knowing what you used because it's really a neat look.

    Dammit guys! Can y'all stop sharing such beautiful icons and walls please?! Just when I think I perfected my setup, a design even more elegant comes along and I end up switching maybe one icon, which in turn makes me have to rearrange my springboard because of that one sweet icon! lol

    You guys are amazing. This theme is definitely worth buying and i'm so glad I did. Without you guys supporting it, I'd probably end up going back to the stock Apple theme, because I suck at Photoshop. Thank you everyone!

    Here's my current layout before I go switching out more stuff

    Hit me on Twitter with a PM. I have them turned off in the forum for now. I'm really tired of hate mail so I'm closing my box for awhile.

    Just one last thing. As kindly as I can possibly put this....

    If you're looking for an icon I've done and it's not on the repo and it's not on my DeviantArt page, then I haven't released it because it's either not complete or because it uses components I can't release.
    My new Newsstand icon is a perfect example. It's not done yet. Oh it's pretty already for sure, but if you look closely you'll see several things I need to touch up before I'll release it.

    Patience y'all.
