The Way that KDM should look

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by boskicinek 112 comments

While our current KDM is not the best, it's ok.

Aside from my opinion of this one looking Lycorisish (this is not a complement, sorry), it is bad UI. You would have to mouse all the way over to the left to select your login, mouse back (remember, users are stupid when it comes to UI design) then type, name and password and mouse down to the "go" button which I presume really means "login"

Be careful that in trying to make things nicer, you don't make them more complex. - Mar 25 2004
My Login Manager

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by Braindead 123 comments

I have always liked XPs login, it's simple, clean and effective. This is even better because it's skinnable. I have two suggestions:
- change the shutdown/restart icons to better match (this is probably a theme thing anyway)
- make the password stars a little bigger. - Mar 25 2004

This is supposed to be a moon? It doesn't look like any moon I know. Frankly, it's look like a dupe of KDE's default (maybe shifted a little). Bleh. - Feb 23 2004

Sure, we all don't like SCO, but who would really want to look at a dog jettisoning it's cargo all day long?

Funny picture...maybe...for a moment.
Mildly amusing and feeds our dislike for SCO...yes.
Wallpaper for our regular viewing...I think your kinda twisted man ;-) - Feb 20 2004

Furthermore, there is far more killing associated with Islam than with Christianity. Quick let's follow France's lead and ban all historical references whatsoever. After all, so much bad stuff happened in history. - Feb 16 2004

Hacker style? Should it be console text? This is more neo-deco style IMHO. - Feb 12 2004

OK, found the Fedora throbber. Ack, XMMS needs an icon! - Jan 03 2004
Wasp

Icon Sub-Sets by systemx 45 comments

I have a few questions:
- What throbber is that? uberschweet!
- What style is that? I think Alloy goes nicely with Wasp icons
- Is there a better icon for 'New' than the mirror looking one? (I don't think it represents 'New' very well. It looks more like the icon for "i don't know what the heck this file is") ;-)
- What desktop font? It's a bit whimsical for my taste, but I'm curious.

A few missing icons, that I noticed are:
- Find
- New/Close Tab
- Print Frame
- (Exit) Full-screen mode

All in all, very nice, keep up the good work. - Jan 03 2004

Please think...

The filter that you wish to have is already in place. Just click on the upper-right where it says, "Edit Profile". Then set the content filter to 50%.

There you go, you are guaranteed to see only art that the community deems to 50% ugly or better. =)

<sarcasm>The voting feature is over-rated. Be sure to make your opinion known by posting flames in the response forum.</sarcasm> - Oct 28 2003

So if you don't like it, vote it down. If you don't want to see it, there is a setting on your user profile that will allow you to filter out those with rankings lower than a percent you can set to your heart's content.

I don't really care for this wallpaper. Space is pretty cool, but the "words over random space image" is getting a little old.

This is a community forum and I applaud the KDELOOK staff for not telling the users what they really want to see. Let's not forget to use the filter and vote system as it was meant for. - Oct 28 2003
Slavery

Slave(s) is only found twice in the KJV. The KJV uses the terms bondmen and bondmaids. These are workers who are bound to work off a debt they have outstanding with their master. Every 7 years, all debts were forgiven in Israel. Hence all slaves (bondservants) were free of their debts. This is different than the wretchedness that stains American history where people where truly considered property.

You make many damning claims about the NIV. Anyone can talk, can you site your sources? Rather than throw around names of scholars with differing opinions, let's let God be the one to choose if something is "bastardized" or not. By that I mean, have people come to know the Lord Jesus as their savior and friend by the words of the (insert non-KJV bible here)? Has anyone grown in their faith and lead a blessed life by following the words in the (insert non-KJV bible here)? The answer to both of those questions is yes; I have seen it with my own eyes. Futhermore, in mission fields around the world, people are coming to have a personal relationship with Jesus through incomplete translations of the scriptures into their native language from bibles in the missionary's native tongue (America isn't the only country that sends missionaries). The translators were not an army of 54 (KJV) or 115 (NIV) Ph. D. touting scholars, but one person who does not speak Greek, or Hebrew or Aramaic or Latin. They just made themselves available for God to use them. And He did and will continue to do so as long as there are willing servants.

So the next time, you are tempted to bash the NIV or another translation, consider that the person may not know the real Truth. The lost people of this world need hope, not infighting and doubt. - Oct 28 2003

"In the New Testament jesus said to basically ignore the Old Testament and follow his teachings in the New Testament."

I can tell, you haven't done much bible-reading. God has a lot to say to all of us. One of which is Jesus's words, "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished." You can read that and the context in Matthew chapter 5.

Also, if your statement is true, why has Leviticus persisted for 3-4 thousand years?

Another cool thing about the bible is that certain concepts are really important to God. Those things are repeated. For example, read Joshua chapter 1 for tips on how to lead a nation. Courage is mentioned 4 times. Likewise, many of the things written in Leviticus are repeated in other books (mainly Numbers, but you will find a consistent theme, if you look). - Oct 28 2003
