Once more we must hear from the silly whiners, communists and heretics everytime someone posts one thing or other regarding religion-a fact ppl-its here to stay its not going away get over it. I dont recall seeing tim demand that anyone view his works -much less try to convert anyone here by force from herecy to christianity or any other religion.
As for this piece, there is no kde gear in it that i recall -so lets rip into him for non-kde themed work just like the commies do to tim.

So.. someone on this site is posting Christian Wallpapers, there are some Christians on this site, and they like the backgrounds. He is posting these wallpapers for the Christians on this site. It's a funny thing.. on kdelook.org YOU DON'T HAVE VIEW ALL THE WALLPAPERS. You get a title and a little thumbnail to warn you if it's something you don't like. I use SuSE linux. If someone post's a mandrake linux background, I DON'T CLICK ON IT! When I see a satanic background I DON'T CLICK ON IT! However.. the athiests here are different. When they see something that says "Jesus Saves" they click on it, view it, and then start whining about how someone's forcing religion on them. PLEASE. Start acting your age. Tim is putting Christian Wallpapers here for Christians to enjoy, just like others put Slackware linux wallpapers out for Slackware users to enjoy, or Mandrake linux Wallpapers for Mandrake users to use. END OF STORY. There are a lot of wallpapers here that are offensive to many people. I think you know what I'm talking about (And I don't have to view them). And to top it all of jerks with nothing better to do have to make poor wallpapers for the purpose of making fun of someone else's wallpaper, because he is somehow "forcing" you to view religous wallpapers. There are people that have different opinions than you. Live with it. Who's the troll? Someone who is posting something that he and others strongly believe in, or someone who posts wallpapers just to make fun of someones beliefs?

You show Tim's traits here. You ignored the comment above. It's the behaviour not the content. But it seems you can forgive Tim that can't you...

Well, what behaviour ??? I thought somehow KDE-Look was all about Artwork to beautify your desktop and to post it up here, as far as i can see Tim has exactly done that - no matter what you believe or if you like the content. Tim might also turn aroud and say he is offended by nude women as a background and the like ... censorship is a bad thing and always has been (unless it is inticing you to criminal action, or of exceptionally bad taste or illegal) - i agree with Abe - if you are so offended by it don't look at it, simple. i really don't know what all the fuss is about!

Now, being a deist, I acknowledge the existence of a higher being, and know well that Jesus was a historical figure and as such a very important part of history (much like Buddha).

Also, I use Mandrake, and every time I see a SuSE wallpaper I CLICK ON IT, just to see what it looks like. Whenever I see a Christian or otherwise religiously themed wallpaper I CLICK ON IT, just to see what it looks like. And so on, I am certain you understand me. Now, this may be due to several factors, mainly my personality, which includes a very large portion of being curious about things. I have this from my mother, I'm told. Right, now when I vote for a wallpaper (and this happens rarely, because I believe that wether something is beautiful is in the eye of the beholder, someone might find something beautiful while others might be going to the toilet because of it), I do this as a result of a scrutiny of the technical quality of said piece. If it does not live up to some certain standard, I click [bad] while if it lives up to my standards, I vote [good], though that wallpaper really needs to be spectacular. I do not vote on ideals, I vote on technical quality. And a copy/paste job with a gradient background can be good, but only very rarely is. And frankly, it is getting very old.

To sum up, my idea for a solution would be to add the wallpapers that fit eachother into sets, such as for example Christian Gradient, Christian Scientists, and so on. The same goes for the others. These wallpapers may all be very good, however I do not feel the need to have all these very similar wallpapers in different packages. A good example of this concept is the recently added Galactica wallpaper collection, where a set of similar, but different wallpapers were put into one package, so that they do not take up immense amounts of space.

Thank you for you time.

All great ideas. What about creating a volutary "flag" that submitters could use if they felt their material might not be appreciated by all, and then allowing users to customize their viewing experience by selecting "all but self-regulated items"...

It is not the material I find offensive (though there may be some that do) but the inappropriate use of this site i.e. flooding, resubmission, claims of persecution etc.

Stop the behaviour, not the content.

(Although the quality and nature has been dire...)

It is high time the administrators show some leadership and do something about the degradation of kdelook.org by people using it as a platform for proselytization in the form of wallpaper images.



One culprit--timbrown527--has even taken to making frequent *minor* revisions (if any) of his so that they continually reappear on the front page.



Some suggestions of how you might respond:


a general notice on the site condemning the abuse and asking for better behaviour
a private note to timbrown527 and any others asking them to stop abusing kdelook, and indicating that they will be penalized in some way if they continue
create an "All but wallpapers" category and make it the default view. The street-corner preachers will be less inclined to pollute the site (with such little effort) when they know that they are reaching fewer readers



I'm sure there are other steps you could take, and you're probably already discussing some response.



I believe that if this abuse of kdelook is allowed to continue as it is, the site will lose a lot of readers and contributors, and thus become much less useful. After that it will lose its advertisers, and eventually die on the vine as themes.org did before.

actually i think the site may get so many readers base from the response on tim's work.

Mull, I hope that English is your second language. You seem to have difficulty in expressing your thoughts. By the way, most of us are able to get our points across without using the "F" word in every other sentence.

It's not about religion. It's about one person being a troll.

You wan't to stop this try engaging Tim in a discussion about his behaviour. Doubt you you'll get very far though....
