    THX beloved Brother, I really appreciate your words to me and understand you. All is fine like it is.
    In 10 years, or 100 years... at last in 10.000 years custom Window 7/8 Themes, and ALL from today means nothing anymore. And we know from Albert Einstein and also from the modern quantum physicists that Time is also Illusion. What say this in fact? We dont must wait 10, 100 or 10.000 years - it means all nothing today.

    Be always blessed and happy!

    Hello everyone on ASUS ROG forum, hope all of you doing fine and great.

    I'm made this account just to say few words about this...

    If we share something in good reasons is that must mean that we are doing advertising?

    How we can know if you don't want just press Download button and walk away?

    If we can spend months to create a good theme for W7 and W8, how it is possible from you that you can't spend 30 minutes to look out for theme?

    What kind of the time it is when today's everyone wants just to press DOWNLOAD and go away?

    I mean, must of peoples want everything for free, and yes it is for free I don't see what should be problem if you type in google few words for this theme.

    (AT LEAST, IF SOME LIKE THIS THEME AND HE/SHE WANTS IT, THEN PROBABLY HE OR SHE WILL GIVE A TRY TO FIND IT, IF YOU JUST WANT ONE CLICK TO GET THIS THEME, THEN PROBABLY YOU WILL BE NOT INTERESTED TO FIND IT, INSTEAD YOU WILL LEAVE NEGATIVE FEEDBACK, BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT GET WHAT YOU WANT FOR PRICE THAT YOU LIKE.)

    I all understand, It is fine if you are removed download link for this theme, of course it is your forum your rules. I respect that. So from now I would leave it as it is, no advertising for other forums via this. Just sharing.
    Like in post above of beloved brother Chris this is illusion this is just internet, we don't make money from this we don't have almost nothing from this, except to see some good feedback and nice communications...

    Don't take it wrong, don't take personally, everyone have a right on own opinion.

    Since several MT members have stopped by I feel like I should elaborate on this comment to make it a bit less pithy. And again, this is my personal opinion and doesn't have anything to do with my moderation duties or ASUS.

    I said misguided because the idea of requiring posts to download isn't going to generate members, it's going to generate abandoned accounts with 10 posts. People who like the site and want to participate will register anyway. People who don't want to participate will still leave once they get what they want. You can't force meaningful participation. The danger is there are some folks who will see the silly obstacles and walk away without even trying your work. Some of those people might have eventually had something to contribute but you scared them away.

    I said overbearing because the host seems overly concerned with registration numbers (there's even a progress bar) and is willing to lock up other artists work to drive up his registration count. Perhaps the artists are consenting but it's not doing them any favors by reducing exposure and distribution of their work. He offers the carrot of thank you's but a thank you button doesn't equal thankful downloaders, it equals downloaders who clicked a button to get what they wanted. It's an illusion of gratitude. It means exactly the same thing as a download counter and that can be implemented without the reduced exposure and distribution.

    My personal opinion is that the host should focus on curation and promotion. If the aesthetic of the site is pleasing and the content is high quality the member base will grow naturally. That's not to say that he shouldn't encourage participation and expression of gratitude, but there are better ways. Off the top of my head, an interstitial download page encouraging users to return and give feedback might be helpful. Then you'd know that feedback was genuine rather than forced and insincere.

    Very good comment Xeromist. I agree completely with your comment. If this theme is posted for what it is then why not host it here being this is an Asus site and have folks just click and download it they should not be forced to register and post on a site just to maybe find the download link. I did that when the Win 7 theme came out was very frustrating.
    Anyhow to each there own
    Happy ROG_n

    Beloved Brothers,

    I really appreciate your very kind, sin- and helpful comments.

    We can write now a lot more helpful... but, the short version is fine, easy to understand, and very helpul for us.

    No one on earth is really, truly happy about just one big reason: We assess / evaluate / judge. Not that we
    dont must do that in some ways... but we do that very much to often in a crazy way - and this injures ourself.

    No one can injures me (also you) with judge. Why? Because only I am responsible for my thoughts.
    Always only my own crazy thoughts injures me:

    NO ONE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MY (YOUR) THOUGHTS, FEELINGS, EMOTIONS, AND ACTIONS. ALWAYS ONLY ME (YOU).

    Only my condemnation injures me. "Injures" stay for all other words like "frustrating"
    for example. And this is all based on fear. But this is a long story to explain... Maybe another day.

    All is fine like it is in present moment, the only one moment what exist (time is illusion).

    "All problems are only crazy thoughts about the illusion of past or future." Eckhart Tolle

    In this case the work is a collaboration. Even if Cosmo wanted to do that it would not be fair to re-host it without the knowledge of the other contributors.
