Now that's too much. :-) What was happening with the cat that it was in semi-attack mode??

Incidentally, I have a cat that likes to be frisky from time to time also. She has her moments where you want to wring her, but most of the time it's just cute. :-p - May 06 2005

Thank you thank you thank you!

This looks really great.

One thing to mention. You think you might be able to incorporate the "S" symbol inside the circle in a similar way you did the Debian swirl in the original one? I like that outlined faded look you made on the Debian swirl.

Thanks again! :-) - May 06 2005

Sure, it's reminiscent of Windows, but so what? It's a clean interface. Some people don't mind that it looks like Windows, so long as the security and function isn't like Windows.

As for the creativity, I think this person has done a better job than most in reproducing the Windows style. There has to be some creativity in that...

Nice job. :-) - May 12 2004

You know what, I've made this point over and over, and seriously, it always falls on deaf ears. And it's the same group of people. Mind you, some get it, but others just keep on coming with the same attitude. And then new people come in to spew the same drivel others have in the past.

While not all fall into this category, I have come to believe that they don't care, and they will continue to do what they want. Mind you, Tim this time even noted a biblical verse, giving everyone a heads-up, aside from mentioning that this was primarily intended for FELLOW BELIEVERS. But there they are.

It's not worth it really. Sometimes you just have to walk away. Agree to disagree, I guess... - Feb 04 2004

Regarding your first point, I have seen other postings that have been rather offending, and some with maliscious intent. Tell me if you see the amount of responses to those postings as opposed to Tim's. Personally, they do not offend me. And the ones that do I might look, but that's it. I move on. I find it amusing that those that disagree are still willing to come and respond. Tim doesn't do it to spite anyone. He does it because he sees that there are people in the KDE-Look community that enjoy his art. I myself have been critical of the quality of his work at times, but I believe that everyone should have the right to post what they want, even if the "supposed majority" says otherwise. To date, I have not seen the admins say anything about it, so if it's ok with them, it's ok.

The reason his artwork goes down to 20-30 percent is because there are some that do it with bad intentions. They don't rate him on the art quality itself. They rate it down because of his beliefs, and because he chooses to share that with others. He's not saying, "BELIEVE THIS OR DIE!!!" He's just sharing some of his artwork with a biblical passage. If those that have a problem don't like it, move on. But don't rate it down because of what it says...rate it because the art is good/bad. That's why this place is "eye candy for your kde-desktop." And that "eye candy" is subjective.

As for the parodies of his wallpapers and other such responses, that just speaks volumes of the maturity level of some members of this community. All those people are doing is making themselves look foolish. This would be akin to Linux users attacking SCO technologically or even physically because of what SCO is doing. It only hurts the situation, and makes Linux and the Linux community look bad. Same goes for the KDE-Look community. Show yourselves as people who can engage in discussions in a mature level, not by responding in such childish ways like the spiteful wallpapers.

As for alternatives that would supposedly be "more suited" to Tim's artwork, I don't buy that one bit. If that were the case, then 95% of the submissions should be removed, because most of them don't have ANYTHING to do with KDE. Some are artworks of nature...should they only go to sites that cater to this??? I don't think so. In the same manner, I think Tim has all the right to post his artwork. Besides, if you read the New Testament, Christians are called to share the good news of Jesus Christ. What good does it do to share to those that already know??? Talk about preaching to the choir!! We are called to share to those that don't know, and the choice is up to each person. NOWHERE in the Bible does it say "FORCE them to believe." It is a personal choice...that is why we have freewill. If you choose to disagree, that's fine! But base your ratings on the quality of his artwork, for that is why it's posted. And if the message happens to touch someone's heart, then great. But don't attack him for his beliefs. To date Tim hasn't attacked anyone for not believing...he's only defended himself from those that have attacked him.

As I mentioned in another posting, one person does not speak for the entire community, nor does the majority speak for the entire community. Many others have shown their thanks to Tim for posting his art, and it is getting better. Just because the majority of the world runs Windows doesn't mean that I'm going to stop using Linux or Mac OS or anything else. I'm sure you would agree with me on this. - Jan 28 2004
He's not pushing anything to me. And I'm a linux user who loves KDE, but I wouldn't mind something like this every so often that caters not only to my computer using needs, but also to my spiritual needs.

Thanks again, Tim. Good freehand work. Was that with a tablet or a mouse? - Jan 24 2004

Isn't that what everyone here does anyways??? KDE is better/greater/faster. Some BSD postings. C'mon...

I understand that this is a place for KDE stuff, but as many post here about what they love/believe as those that post plain graphics and KDE stuff. No one is trying to push anyone into anything. It's there for whoever wants it, whether they are of the Christian faith or not.

Example: Look at Rafiki's latest posting. Personally, I think it's juvenile, but maybe those that hate Tim's stuff will like it. I get mildly irked, move on, and that's it. Why can't everyone else do the same with Tim's submissions if they don't agree?? There have also been postings about other religions/faiths, but no one has harped on those people either. Why must it be with Tim's/Alethia's/any other Christian believer???

It's this double standard that enrages me. I can understand that you don't like it, but don't make the decision for the rest of us. Speak only for yourself, since that's the only person you can be accountable of. - Jan 22 2004

IF the majority doesn't want to be preached to, THEN the majority shouldn't bother with it. Why does THE MAJORITY that doesn't want to be preached to keep coming back?? It's obviously not because they don't know who it is, because after a couple of postings people tend to know the style of certain submitters. If I see something submitted by someone I recognize but don't appreciate, I move on with nary a comment. But such isn't the case here, especially by the "usual suspects" that gripe about it.
As of late, I have come to admire and appreciate the improvement in Tim's artistic abilities, but I have always come to appreciate the message that he brings with it. HE and Alethia and many others submit stuff that a good number of those in the KDE community are looking for. As much as I love the Aqua-ish wallpapers that have been posted, they've become very "me-too" without much substance. Tim's (and other's) submissions have the substance that for a good number of us means something far more than just a pretty wallpaper. Far worse would be to ban his and other's submissions and miss out on someone being touched by a wonderful message, whether they believed in it initially or not. You don't want it, don't look for it. Plain and simple. - Jan 22 2004

Tim, I commend you on doing what so many Christians are afraid to do because of persecution. Though sometimes I feel the artwork itself could be a little cleaner, I commend you for having the courage to share what you believe.

All this backlash is expected, as it is stated in the Matthew 5:10-12:

"Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."

Last I checked, the Internet was all about freedom of expression. It seems it's ok for pornography, hate, and violence to be expressed on the Internet, but let's all bring in the censors when it comes to something like the Good News of Jesus Christ. Others have posted submissions regarding their faith beliefs, and yet anything having to do with Christianity is received with utter disdain.

Again, so-called "tolerance" rears it's ugly head. If you don't believe the message, if you don't believe that you have sin in your life as everyone does, as Tim does, as I do, and that God has given a gift, his son Jesus Christ to pay the penalty for all of our sins past present and future through his death and resurrection, then don't read on. The choice is yours to make, and it's not forced upon you. Tim and others are as free to express their beliefs as many of you are to criticize them. Sure you have to go into the submission to see who it is, but if you read it and don't agree with it, move on to the next submission and that's it. Many people are thankful for his posts. Not all of KDE-Look "hates" him or others like him. - Nov 25 2003

Where is the prejudice that you so describe in this wallpaper??? I read the entire thing and didn't see one bit of bigotry. All I saw was a statement by someone who isn't afraid to share what he believes. The emphasis here is SHARE. Whether you decide to take it or not that's your choice. But I think the poster should be given the right to say whatever he wants, just as many others have about many other things. This double standard by many that have constantly responded to Tim's submissions in a negative way goes COMPLETELY against the "tolerance" that many of these same people claim to uphold.

All I can say is that for those who have issues, live up to the true meaning of "tolerance." Or just agree to disagree, and move on. If this bothers you, then don't click on it. Constructive criticism never hurt anyone, but there is never a need to post something derogative or insulting. He isn't FORCING you to make it your wallpaper, yet you are eager to force your insults upon him for the beliefs he upholds.

Heck, I've seen many of the "parodies" of Tim's work. I don't agree with those "parodies" and yes it bothers me. How do I deal with it?? I move on...nothing important for me to see. EVERYONE should be free to submit whatever they want, regardless of what the stance of some people are. - Nov 20 2003
