Hi Alexandre,

I am sorry that you have this attitude. But I understand - the reactions 
of users here to your proposals were often too personal and unnecessarily 
inadequate. However, remember that the current splash screen is the 
result of a consensus from your proposal. Likewise, the opening screen in 
Konqueror, KMail, the look of help pages, and so on. Let me say that the 
impressions of your designs here are written down significantly.

During your earlier activity, I assumed that your theme will be 
incorporated as another of the basic themes. Unfortunately, you have been 
discouraged by users feedback and therefore this work is still awaiting 
to completion. Although we have conservative users as well as developers, 
we are not closed to new proposals.

Cheers
