    I hope everyone understands that there are costs associated with hosting that site, Bandwidth and server space just ain't free, and SRL does spend time creating the themes he provides. And a lot of those are provided Free.

    Thanks for everything Srl,

    Rcbjr.

    I love the site and cp has helped me many times with ringtones. I can't say how much I appreciate the work that they provide for all of us!

    I appreciate srl's response the most - for those that were offended, I apologize.
    Cherri - The theme I use, I created myself.

    Again thanks to those who do understand and those who also help support or more importantly contribute to Mobile41.com.

    I take no offense to your post. It has been asked many time before and i do understand. Rcbjr said it well and there is no need to repeat that part.

    As for the 3 minutes? lol sometimes this is true, i have well over 1150 themes and there are only soooo many colors on the ol' wheel. As long as i stay organized i can often find a theme i have already made and simply change a few minor things and it posted as a new theme for someone who requested it. The important part of that is someone requested it on Pinstack and they are getting what they asked for in a very short time.

    Placing a smile on a Stackers face or phone is very important and i hope this is why many people visit Pinstack.

    Some of my themes do take many hours to make but after getting it done it's still worth it and of course saved for future use which turns into that 3 minute theme down the road.

    I hope most enjoy and i'm always willing to adjust if someone asks.

    Re: Great Site for Themes, Ringtones Etc.

    Thanks srl7741 for the site, I didn't know that you were the one who made that site but thanks alot. I would probably be charging money too if I was asked to make all those themes. I wouldn't be able to make them near as fast as you so I'll leave the theme making and money making to the expert, LOL!! I am actually trying to make one theme for my pearl but it is taking forever because I'm making every little thing different and it takes a while to change the icons and stuff up all individually.

    Thanks again and keep the theme making up. Also I have one question....Is the donation to buy a theme actually a donation or does the money go to you? Not trying to make you sound bad or anything, but I was just wondering.

    Thanks in advance for the answer and the themes that I know you are working on,

    SRL's got my total support. Trust me it is much much harder than u think and paying $4 would be my pleasure to get one of those. Of course I dont pay cause I make em my self

    But anyway, u get the point!!

    SRL, U're good!

    Re: Great Site for Themes, Ringtones Etc.

    Peter, with all due respect, and I have quite a bit of respect for you and your contributions - you don't know me. As an IT Admin, and someone who has put together several themes I don't believe it's "harder than I think". Some of my themes have taken minutes and some have taken several hours over several days to create.

    I was simply looking at themes that other's have created to spark idea's of my own and to find new things to try. When I went to SRL's website and saw "most" themes now require a donation, I was disappointed to see that. I totally understand SRL's position and may donate to the site because I respect his honesty and answer. I'm not likely to ever buy a theme, I don't see the point in downloading something and wishing it was just a little different in some way. I'll make my own.

    What I did find out though, is that Stackers stick up for each other. What I didn't expect was to get kicked around like a soccer ball for having a thought and posting it, especially by Stack Pro's.

    I guess it's time to move on, I have enjoyed most of my experience.

    Altough you won't get any bb themes here, you can get tons of wallpapers, screensavers, ringtones, and themes for other phones. Most importantly, there are tons of 3gp videos! And they are all compatible with the Pearl. Http://www.mobile9.comThey don't charge for anything, as all content is user contributed. I get 90% of my wallpapers and tones here.

    We weren't really kicking you around, it's just that the way you phrased your thought was a little upsetting and we tried to explain why he felt it necessary to ask for a donation to cover the costs of supporting the host site.

    I'm sorry you feel that we were jumping on you, it wasn't meant to upset you. And as an IT Admin, you should know that running a site like that is not free.

    I hope you reconsider staying here on the Forums, I'm sure you could be of assistance and we really hate loosing participants.
