I love all of your wallpapers. The style and textures are perfect IMO. But, I must admit, I am an Orange freak, and there are just not enough orange wallpapers out there. Could you please create a version of this style in orange? I would REALLY appreciate it. - Jan 31 2004

I think you have misunderstood what I am saying. If I didn't believe in the voice of the minority, I wouldn't be a Linux user or an avid Slashdot reader :-p. Only through creativity and expression (sometimes of the minority) do new and awsome things come about. I do not support censorship. Notice two things about what I said:

1. I did NOT advocate CENSORSHIP of Tim's work. I did NOT call for KDE-Look admin to ban him or the like.

2. I put out a couple ideas for BETTER ways for Tim to express his ideas. My argument was NOT that Tim's ideas are bad and should therefore be censored. I simply offered evidence strongly suggesting that KDE-Look is not the best place for him to express his views.

Tim has every right to express his views, but given the evidence in my previous post, it should be obvious that this site is not the place to do it. - Jan 28 2004

Tim, I'm not trying to flame you here, so please read through this comment. I'd like to point out a few things that you seem to have ignored or not noticed. First off, your wallpapers offend people! Secondly, not ONE of your wallpapers has ever received a rating of higher than 49%. That means that the majority of people DO NOT enjoy your artwork. In fact, most of your wallpapers seem to float around 29 to mid 30s percent. These ratings are terrible Tim, and they don't seem to be getting much better. KDE-Look as a community has consistently voted you down, and posted comments asking you to discontinue your postings. Many valid points have been brought up to support this conviction, including: your wallpapers are not eyecandy, the content is offensive, you post unceasingly (near daily), your ratings are VERY low and people have asked you to stop. In addition, you have so annoyed people that there have been a couple "wallpapers" created to MAKE FUN of you. The community is trying to tell you something Tim, especially considering both of the wallpapers were RATED HIGHER THAN ANY OF YOURS. The KDE-Look community is trying to ask you to stop, so please, reconsider what you are doing.

There are alternatives to KDE-Look. I'm sure that there are many online christian communities that would welcome your work. If there aren't, it may be a fun project to create an eyecandy for christians site. I am not trying to flame; but myself, and many members of this community have been, and are asking you now, to find another place for your work. I respect that you want to make wallpapers to honor what you believe, but KDE-Look is simply not the place for it. - Jan 28 2004

It looks excellent, except the white flare is hard on my eyes. Besides that, the K is perfect and the black looks very classy.. excellent texture. - Jan 20 2004

Wow tihkal, your artwork is really improving! Keep up the good work! I hope to see at least 2 or 3 more masterpieces in the next 36 hours! - Dec 15 2003

I wouldn't expect a response. It seems that horrific ratings and a good comment or two are enough to keep him at it. I wish KDE-Look would do something about this, as it is very annoying. Many people have said this before, but these wallpapers are ugly for one, but most importantly, not creative. They are just an unoriginal image with a God quote slapped on in a hideous font. These are not eyecandy and they are most certainly not creative. Take a look at the "Highest Rated" wallpapers Tim, they include all original artwork in creative and stylish themes. In addition, some of the wallpapers you have submitted may be EXTREMELY offensive to some, especially one of your latest, the anti-abortion one. I'm sorry Tim, but that was your most distasteful creation yet. You have no business posting something like that on this site. This site is NOT an outlet for your religious propaganda and your personal convictions regarding abortion should be kept to yourself. You ask people not to flame, yet you post a anti-abortion wallpaper. That is probably the issue that people have the strongest convictions about, in case you haven't noticed. I think I speak for many when I say, clean up your act or stop posting (in case you didn't get the picture from the ratings and comments you receive). - Dec 11 2003

I have no objection to you posting religious wallpapers, although personally I find it a little distasteful. I do not believe that your wallpapers belong on this site. This site is for "eyecandy for your KDE Desktop". The fact is, this, and your others, are not eyecandy. The gradient is rough on the eyes, the fonts are tacky and the clipart is pretty lame. This is not intended as flame, I am simply letting you know why some people do flame. Improve your work, and maybe you won't get as much flame. - Dec 08 2003
