    Default What's going with DB Themers?


    The activity on ModMyi around DB Themes has gone way down in the last few weeks.

    Did I miss something? What's going on?

    We use to see multiple new themes and updates on any given day, now the threads are barely active.

    I love DB and I would love to see activity around it pick up again.

    Just sayin'

    Cheers.

    I think dreamboard themes are absolutely amazing with what they can do and how different they can make your phone look and feel. From a modders perspective (or mine to be more specific) I find Winterboard themes much more enjoyable to mod. Trudging through a massive plist isn't quite as fun as messing with html / css files and photoshop.

    There are some really cool looking DB themes around and I really enjoyed AppleCOREHD but always get drawn back to Winterboard themes for the ease & fun of modding them.

    Like they said above. We are not coding robots. I am working on updating my themes and school work is the thing holding me back...T_T, sucks really.

    alot of those dreamboard themers either dont have alot of spare time to work on updates or some who just go m.i.a after they receive payments from guys like me....getting pretty sick of it. 5 dreamboard themes I payed for in beta and still have not received final updates or no word on any updates..I've messaged some of the creators and they dont reply back however I see them starting new projects or replying on other threads..I find that funny.

    Don't worry - this issue exists with a lot of Winterboard themers too. Have seen countless times where for one reason or another a theme will either not get out of beta or just have the creator go MIA. There are lots of times where life gets too busy or something unforeseen happens which is totally understandable but lots of times you just see them pop up with another theme while many people left wondering whats going on after paying for what they thought would be a complete and supported theme.

    Thats why I applaud people who don't charge for their themes. You aren't just harvesting people for a quick buck before moving onto the next lot of people who are will to part with a few dollars. Most themes here are worth much more than what people are charging for them - the quality found on some themes is nothing short of mindblowing and those themers deserve every dollar they make but there are many people here who I suspect are just here to generate a bit of extra cash without releasing something that necessarily deserves it.

    Not to burst a bubble but I have found Winterboard themes more fun to mod along with more options to mod them.

    I tend to swap between a couple of Winterboard themes and Dreamboard themes. I am attempting to make my own Dreamboard theme "SHADOWZ HD", and hopefully I do get past the beta stage which will be very soon.

    All dreamboard themers should quit school and work and get back to making iOS devices beautiful. This is totally selfish of all of you! Dropping the themeing for something so pointless as education and earning a living!! Absolutely and utterly disgraceful, mean and selfish.. You shouldn't think about improving your own lives until you have satisfied our need for themes!! Get back to work you lazy bastards! You should be shackled to your work stations, only to have 3 toilet breaks in your frantic 19 hour themeing day with food rations, and a regular whipping to increase performance! 1 new theme per day or made to suffer consequences of the highest magnitude! Bring on the dreamboard theme enslavement camps! We are hungry for customisation!! You have teased us with your skills for the past couple of months and now we have an insatiable taste for HTML widgets and quick theme changing.. Get back to work!!

    Very funny

    Don't get me wrong, I appreciate all the hard work everyone has been doing on DB themes and I totally understand that we all have more important priorities than themeing in life.
