    Let me make it perfectly clear. The alphas do not get paid. We put in the time and effort, simply to support the creation of a great theme. Bars works a day job, he is a husband and a father, then busts his *** creating themes for the end user.

    We tell bars when stuff looks like crap,(and yes... It's rare but sometimes it happens), we make widgets, sometimes walls, sometimes icons... Sometimes our creations make it into the theme, sometimes not. We run support on this thread so that Bars can spend his time creating.

    ME... I'm 30 years old. I own and run a company, I am a network engineer, I am a wife, and a mother to four. I am a survivor. (F#ck Cancer!) I make widgets, I make icons, I manage the beta repo for iconomatic, I am an Apple Developer, with three apps currently in the AppStore, two of which are wallpaper apps, that require almost daily updates so you get new content. I run support on Twitter for various themes and tweaks for many of your themers, modders, and developers. I'm active on no less than 8 threads here on mmi. I've been given warnings for getting "mouthy" with users (hence the pink stilettos flying comments you'll see thrown around from time to time) , and I've toned that down a lot since granted gold status, as I'm trying to set an example. And the "notion" that I "pick and choose" who to help is more than ridiculous. THAT IS THE PART OF THE PREVIOUS POST that really píssed me off. I help everyone. ALL THE TIME. Regardless of who you are or aren't, or whether we "get along"

    In regard to THIS theme, I have posts 2&3 on this thread and I'm updating them regularly, with FAQ's and UserMods... Does anyone bother to check them before asking 150 thousand times what post Schnedi's or NateD's iconomatic themes are? Or asking 650 thousand times where the status bar text and battery text can be found? (Yes I'm aware these numbers are exaggerated, but this is my post and my perspective) But it wasn't that long ago that I was the one asking question after question. Look at my join date. I've not been here that long. So I DO understand the ones that are fresh to the JB world, and I'm more than willing to help, but not answer something that has not only been answered multiple times, but that I've taken the time to include on posts 2&3.

    There are many that are on the Alpha Squad that do nothing but "help" (meaning answering the same questions over and over) until they are so frustrated... But yet still return. There are others NOT on the Alpha Squad that do the same... The only difference is that by accepting the role of being an alpha, we are kinda obligated to do so, and others aren't, but still do. I could name names, but I don't think it's necessary.

    So, before you knock us, or anyone else, take a moment... We aren't asking that you read every post... Posts 1,2,3 and maybe the last few pages before you ask. How many times have I simply responded "see post 2" "see post 3"... I COULD ignore them altogether... But i still help.

    Happy modding, peeps.
    I NEVER quote long posts, but this post young lady deserves a big thank you

    Your work and the rest of the team is always appreciated

    No need to explain yourself to the community - the OG members know what's good

    Can you tell me what widgets these are?
    Both are Schnedi widgets - recently posted

    One on left was posted past few pages ago and other I modded the CSS to my liking

    Search his posts and you can find what you need - sorry posting mobile right now or I'd be more help

    Lmao! What's with the drama, I mean really. I hope this doesn't turn into legacy or something. I truly try to help whenever possible. And have huge respect for all the people with way way more patience then I. I am no one around here. But I do have some knowledge of this stuff. But answering a question to have the same thing asked on the same page is unreal. I don't know how you all do it. I guess that's why I never could work in a restaurant. People would be wearing that spaghetti. Ha ha. In all honesty to complain about a answer that was given to you, because it was not direct enough is hilarious to me. I just laughed through out the last few pages, and although I understand mama, and Bacardi, and Ryan, and the other who felt the need to clear the air or defend themselves. I still found it preposterous that you all would need to do so. Cause some lazy person could not follow a a simple map to an answer, and outwardly spoke against you is nothing. You all are an important part of this place. And when the new iOS is realeased a lot if you are still here. Please just know that the majority all see your work and are thankful. Rock on to you all, and all the threads your apart of. 👊💥 don't let one set of hurtful words cause you dismay. Just do what you all do. Peace!

    what is the matter,can not take a joke?
    why do you feel a need to put people down like that,if you feel so superior don't read my post i believe you can put me on ignor list,or maybe i am wrong,
    whatever,i didn't ask you for help anyway
    I fail to see the joke.

    You might not have asked me specifically for help but it seemed as though I was still the only one who showed interest in an attempt to help.

    You're welcome btw.

    I hope to make a full theme guide as soon as I am finished I saw the request for new style docks Im all about it. I threw some circle masks together. I dunno- for me its heaven. ha. nice to switch it up. I do a horizontal and vertical guide on the 120x120 @ "50%" so /most/ of the custom icons look pretty bad arse in circle form

    Welcome back Charles, glad to see you're alive and well, and not stuck sick in bed

    Some good names in that Alpha Squad list ... And as my boy Ryan says so often


    SQUAD UP!!
    LOL that started from Big Hemp (Tim) in the EPHD thread. His love for this Elite lifestyle and dedication to hype sucked me right in. I can do nothing but hype the hell out this beast from none other than Bars the Beast and his "squad" of cheerleaders, critiques, mentors, lifelong friends, brothers, and a sister

    Slate OG Triple OG from as long as I can remember!

    So without further adieu, SQUAD UP ELITES! 👊

    Interesting reading. I spend most my time in the background moderating and doing my job here. Try to somewhat limit my involvement but I have to say sometimes it's just fun reading the rants from unappreciative members and then the CRUSH. lol
    Much respect to all, and especially to my gal and fellow surviver *MJ* Think Pink...
