Hey everyone

Its been a long time since I was here last time.
I have been away from this community for a while because of my Webdesign work.

I was checking the forums and trying to get up to speed and then I got the impression that people could have found me arrogant and selfish last time I was here here ( bitching - someone said ) about the rating system and hyping my winamp skins.

This was not my intention and never has been - I dont believe that I ever hyped my skins in anyway. Im sorry if anyone found me arrogant.

I have moved from winamp skin as a little hobby to being a Freelance Webdesigner and that is what has taken all my time from being an active part of the skinning community.

As the situation looks now it doesnt seem as I will get more time than I have now to spend on the skinning community - but I will try to drop in from time to time.


Best regards

Jesper Bentzen

Belive me Jesper , while you have been away a whole new level of arrogance has been created , nah you had a genuine grievance which you came to air in here, no one would blame you for that, as I say, whole new levels of arrogance have been written lately

Keep in touch, your always welcome around here

Yes Jesper, you are always welcome. It's easy for us to get peeved whenever someone new swings in and throws a shoe about all these problems we already know about. It's typical on both sides, and I assure you, no hard feelings were meant by anyone. (Now watch someone show up with a beef ) Anway - links to the new stuff. pleeeeze.

...a blatant person.

Side note, that I should of mentioned last night but for vodka reasons forgot....

Jesper, It's a common fact that most people when they come into the forums for the first time, in particular a focused discussion group like this, that they usualy have something to bitch about, the forums seeming like the only "real time" place to try and communicate your frustrations over to Winamp, I know I did when I first came in here, mine was like yours complaining about the crap ass review system, yes folks it was crap even 9 months ago

I can't speak for everyone, but I do know of a couple of other people around here who also started off with grievances against the system so to speak, and who ranted and raved for there first few posts, once they see what a swank place this is tho, they soon mellow into the vibe of the community

So while you might have bitched and grumbled, you aint the only one whose done that.

Ok that will be all

Back to the day job

That's my man!

Jesper...no biggie, I never thought of you as arrogant.
Why do you think I came here for the first time...
Because I wanted something. not because of the good atmosphere or something. And there's nothing wrong with that.

Thanks...

Wow - I just returned to this topic on day later and look at all the nice people replying to my post.

Thanks everyone for not considering me arrogant by the way I entered this forum some time ago - it wasnt my intention.

Well now let us forget the past and look forward. It seems to me - also indicated by many of you - that this is a very nice "anti-winamp forum" in a possitive sence - I like the nice atmosphere.

BullGawD: I didnt have time to put up any of my latest works on my website yet ( http://www.anovadesign.com ) - but hopefully I will get some time to post it soon.

Mr Bojanglez: I will do what I can to post more often...
But I cant promise anything...

Mr Jones, garetjax: Im glad to hear that Im not the only one entering the forums like the way I did - strange way of building a nice community though =)

ampburner: Thanks for the comments about my work - I apreciate you telling me. Im really happy that people like what I do

Cyana: ... and a hey goes to you too

Doggy Dog: The reason I havent put up everything on my website including my older winamp skins is the fact that I want to keep a certain standard on my website - given the visitor the highest quality I can manage.

I have some handdrawing I have scanned ( done handdrawing since I figured out I had hands ) but Im not sure Im going to put them up on my website because Im afraid that someone would steal them.

As for the latest stuff - like I told BullGawd, Im really busy - but as soon as I get the time to post the new stuff I will.

Well this post took me quite some time - I have to go again because I have a flash website to finish. But I promise I will return very soon to check up on things here.

Ill try to see if Im able to bring the vodka next time

Best regards

I totally agree.
I think you had every right to be upset, and I can't see how anyone could consider that 'arrogant' because

1. You were screwed by winamp.com
2. You've earned respect through your skins and design.

So...no biggie Jesper
