The entry below is classified as a LEGACY post, meaning that it was written (well) before the current version of Avalonstar was released. Although these posts have survived the numerous moves over years, there is no guarantee that they've survived the trip unscathed (especially the links).
Another anger post? Well, yes, another anger post. What triggered it you ask? This:
I'm using your ChaoticSoul theme which is very nice, but Aries is definitely the best WP theme! Gonna use it soon ok? Congrats.
Sure, it's a few days old, but the feeling's still there. I guess you can't get away from it. People asking for Evolution as a WordPress theme? That'll never happen (maybe in another 3-5 years). The only reason I released ChaoticSoul as a theme is because I didn't want the Wayback Machine to start forgetting more of my old layouts. People expecting this layout to become a WordPress theme? Excuse me? I don't know about anybody else, but the sound of that just gets to me.
Anyway, rather than completely rant about it, I have a few more examples from my buddy Kyle Neath. We had a few conversations about this and he seemed to be running into a few of the same problems.
Hey, I was looking at totalspore.com, and I loved the way you layed out the site. I make wordpress themes and release them to the public. I have made [theme name removed], maybe you heard of it. Anyways, I was wondering if it would be at all possible for me to get ahold of your source code. I don't really need the css, but I would love to see the files like index.php, sidebar.php and all of those.
Here's a bit of our conversation.
Harsh? Could be, but I try not to hide anything from you guys. But in this case, I feel that certain people need to be bitch slapped. The rest of this I'll leave up to all of you. I'm intrigued to hear your opinions.
