Sasha, sometimes I feel very bad, but very bad when the users blame on skinned applications. I loved avast even you were not here yet... (I've born before you!  ;D).
This s**t talking about professional looking is boring me a lot.
Just to share this here.
Yes, we understand you. A skin takes a lot of time... Sometimes we can't share all your duties with here, the forums, where we fell so good... don't you think?

Sasha... just tell me something... Am I crazy?

RejZoR, very nice skin! God save the skins  8)

Yeah,but i'm not sure if it'll be ever released. I don't quiet understand the agreement of the author.

Some icons were converted into normal images.

Icon author:
http://www.foood.net/

I'm not sure if those icons can be used at all for such things like my MacloverOS X skin. Grrrr damn i hate such problems :-\
I used these icons because they looked so nice,and now this :'(

which do not compete directly with FOOOD's Icons stock icon collections.
From what I read out of his disclosure, You have to pay a onetime royalty fee which gives you the right to incorporate the icons in your screen saver. It does not however give you the right to re-sell the icons.

You can still use them on a personal basis. You could even send it to me privately. :)

Eh,why is he then offering these icons for free donwload?
The skin is freeware by itself and avast! also offers free version that uses these free skins. Don't see the problem though...

Me neither... I don't understand those people.... I really don't. What do they think ? Maybe, that they will collect some serious money on that ? That's bull... and everyone knows that...

They should do something serious in their life, something that will bring them some serious money and that's for sure not playing with drawing icons. They should have a real work, and this only should be a side activity... just like me. I have my regular job, and I'm so happy with it, I wouldn't change it for anything in the world... but, also... I like to draw and to make web sites, and to compose music... those 3 things are my love and first 2 things I'm doing for me and for avast! users only. I never tried to charge for anything like that... avast! is too good to me, I wanna give something in return. I don't know is it good enough, but at least it's something... I don't care 'cause I can't make money on that... that's why I have my regular job. Of course it would be great to make some extra money sometimes if it's possible, but c'mon people... making money on making some icons, unless you are not some designing company, is nonsense...

Maybe I should start to draw icons and ask for millions of dollars (each), hehe  ;D  ;D  ;D

You could email him and ask, no harm in trying, right?

Yeah,i have mailed him,but no answer yet. I hope my mail was not lost somewhere. I also hope he will allow me to use those icons as buttons on my skin. It would be a shame not to publish MacLoverOS X skin. Not because its mine,but because there was lots of hard work from my and Sashas side.

BTW some of the former Darren's skins also used icons from this site, and that's why I had to remove them.

This is what Darren (in fact our tech support) got from the Foood staff:

As you are now aware you can't just take someone's property, use it & release to the general public. If you had approached me from the start I would probably have given permission. But as you didn't, then I don't give permission for this to  be released publicly.

Regards,
J. Hunt

Oh my God !!! What does he think ? Is he some kid of a God ?!!  ::)  ::)  ::)  ::)
(I would put rolleyes million times, but it's a long process and I don't wanna make this reply look silly...  ::) )

Of course, it wouldn't be so hard to ask if I were Darren, but still...

That's why I like to use my own creations, or some icons created by Alwil... that way I'm sure no one will make any problems, and of course, what's even more important, you don't have to beg those individuals. C'mon people, Darren and no one else never ever tried to make money on that... He could put small icon copyright sign somewhere just like I did on LCARS and Matrix skins though...

This is from contact session on that guys web page:
Quote
Don't send questions about using icons, changing icons, using icons in MobyDock, Y'z Dock etc.
Check out my Help, Tips & FAQ page for help with this. Don't send any other questions about changing icons.
If you're having problems downloading files or viewing images take a look here.
If the answer isn't on the Help page then I don't know.
If you send a question that's already answered on the Help page then your email will be ignored.
Don't send requests or suggestions (unless you're prepared to pay for them to be made).

Hmmm.... to many "DON'Ts"  ::)  ::)  ::)

Note for RejZor:

My advice: Take out all those icons made by that guy, from your skin. You don't need them anyway. That's best thing you can do right now. I wouldn't want those icons on any of skins I made, just because he is so arrogant. There are many web sites featuring free icons, and believe me you can find much better looking icons (Mac Style) for your skin... If you don't wanna listen to my advice, then I don't know what else to advise you...  ;)

But then i'd have to redesign the skin again...

I have sent the mail to this guy before releasing the skin,so he might let me to use the icons (the skin is still idleing in VLKs mailbox :) ). He's lucky that i found he's site,otherwise i would just sent the skin to Alwil. I had these icons on HD for like 3 or 4 years and i didn't have a clue who made them or where i got them from. I found his site when i was looking for some icons and i found those which i used in his collection...

Second day and still no answer...
