Although I didn’t look at every link you posted, what I did check are not spam. They are website themes. Those are allowed. There is even a website category. But what is spam are when people upload designs for the purpose of linking to websites to, for example, download pirated movies.

Ok, thanks for clearing this up. I should probably go and read the rules first before I start accusing anyone of breaking them :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I am still a bit puzzled about the hundreds of submissions, some of very low quality, which seem to show snapshots of the creators pets and will hardly be downloaded by anyone else. And I am not sure if Firefox themes are an effective way of advertising for pirated movies?

No problem. :slight_smile:

In the beginning there wasn’t an option to reject a design for being low quality, there is now. And as for submissions with people’s pets, whether someone uses it or not really isn’t something we judge. I myself have themes up featuring cats that I’ve had over the years. Some of them are used by others, some have no users now, but they used to.

I don’t know about the pirated movie thing, whether it’s effective or not. But it’s not allowed anyway.

I have no problems with
themes featuring animals, just with the quality of some of them

  • there should be some artistic merit, otherwise no one is going
    to use them. The vast amount of themes on offer show 0 or 1
    daily users, and while many might be new, I suspect that a good
    part of them will not be particularly successful. Also, someone
    looking for a theme will have to wade through masses of
    possibilities to get a bit of an overview…

      But I am not complaining.
    

For me, this is the first time I can show some of my artwork.

    And I better take another

look at what is on offer, maybe I am a bit too critical.


(Pamela Rosensteel) #275

I understand what you’re saying. And I wasn’t thinking you had a problem with animal themes. As I said, quality control wasn’t implemented right away so there are quite a lot of designs online already that if they were uploaded now would never be approved.
