    What I find interesting is that I rarely hear people speak bad about the theme, just the people that are representing the theme. I think that point alone deserves a little bit of self evaluation. Maybe less talking about being Elite and just being Elite. Try that out and maybe the tone in the thread will shift in a more positive way. Just a thought.

    No one asked me, though I feel the need to remind anyone who takes the the out to read this-that all we have to do is ignore the negative people . The ones that feel the need to talk like 20 to lifers but yet are meeky sitting behind a keyboard threatening to use fire arms.
    Lol it's hilarious ... Just ignore it and use this site for what it's meant for.

    That's it again, Krima. You're on a roll today.. Though I get Ryan's pride in a great product.. the whole 'squad up' and 'be Elite' thing - is overplayed and creates a groupie mentality that, I'm guessin', takes away from Rob's intent. I know people mean well.. but it's all overdone. Jes' sayin'..

    Krima I've always had the utmost respect for you brother. Always keeping the peace and being a pillar of this community. Your words are true and wise and I read them with a true heart.

    "Maybe less talking about being Elite and just being Elite. Try that out and maybe the tone in the thread will shift in a more positive way."

    You have a good point right there. But what's the harm in keeping people in good spirts and hyping up their days? I walk live on an overly optimistic path. That's maybe a flaw in my design, but I live it with no regrets. What's the harm in ending my comments daily with a squad up or two?

    You know why I started saying that? When Tim (h3mptation) would come through EPHD thread and say that. The way I would see people react, even myself when he did that. It was an amazing experience. I am the man I am today, at least in this setting, directly because of him. That's what Tim and I do.. HYPE. Keep people in positive spirits.

    Ryan's pride is borderline fanatical and a bit scary to me. He's helped me out and I appreciate that. He's a great salesman on this type of forum. He's a perfect mascot and Squad Up is the stuff of mascots.

    You're right brother, no doubt. We increased a following with that campaign. Maybe it's time to lay that to rest and just do what we do, design

    Yes please. It served a purpose and that purpose no longer exists. The product should (and does!) speak for itself. Let it.

    I was the same exact way with Romy at first. But I've seen him come a LONG way, and does nothing but help in these threads. I appreciate the modder he's grown into, and def have a newfound respect for all that he does.

And why would you not have gone with the angluar dark design from both other Elites? Because the 'happy colors' of iOS7 didn't allow for that -- right? Consistency with iOS you're given - right? The rest of it is my opinion - and calling it the way I see it. I said so many things there.. Which 'particular' statement of mine do you feel is full of shiz? I'm happy to retract anything that I'm just 'getting totally wrong'. Please be specific, bro.

    Yeah, bro.. It's time is probably over.. But your heart and head are both in the right place, man. You're a 'great champion' for Elite. No doubt..

    No you have it all wrong brother! When I would see you come in in EPHD and elite6 threads, I was always left with an awesome feeling and beautiful design to admire.

    So let me say the honor is all mine, I am honored to be among you all! Nothing but love brother!

    I appreciate that man but I'm nobody in this community. I do appreciate the compliment though.

    Please don't misunderstand, I love the hype, the enthusiasm, and the promoting. I do it for products and themes I'm excited about all the time. I think that's a good thing but sometimes it can turn into an exclusionary thing. It's a fine line, and honestly, who am I to say what that line is. It's kind of like a backhanded compliment. If u tell someone, "For a woman your size, u look good in that dress". If u simply wanted to pay her a compliment than leave out the size part. What I have seen in the thread is a lot of egos, abrasive attitudes, and pompous behaviors that poison the spirit of the thread.

    What I love about hemp is that his positivity is never tainted by a need to defend himself or prove his point. He always comes from a position of humility and that, I think, is why he is always well received. He is a great example to follow and I don't always follow it but I would like to. It's hard to check your pride when u r trying to get your point across. None of this takes away from the theme though, just the thread.

    Nothing but wisdom in all that you've spoken! I try to keep by Tim's principles too. And he has to throw me in check all the dam time. It is a very fine line, and I admit I do cross it a lot. I'll try to to work harder on it no doubt.
