    Now that is a shame. He had great skills.

    That's a real shame.

    Ironically, it says "Best Support" in the logo..

    I guess all his resources here should be deleted by the team, as he didn't do it himselve. Or at least there should be a notice.

    Would recommend

    napy8gen - sultantheme.com
    http://xenforo.com/community/members/napy8gen.1092/


    Qwk86gn - pixelExit.com
    http://xenforo.com/community/resources/authors/qwk86gn.789/

    As current affordable replacement, who seem to be quick to respond.

    Sultantheme.com handled most of our vBulletin 3 design and has ported over some designs to XenForo (very affordable)

    pixelExit.com has developed out default style for the better part of Socially Uncensored's history.

    It is up to the author (Miner in this case) to remove them. Staff shouldn't responsible (and aren't) for removing dead add-ons or skins like this.

    In my opinion, the staff of a website must look out for their users. As Miner didn't do this himself, the staff should place at least a moderated message.

    Not going to happen.

    What about the hundreds of other resources which have been silently abandoned?

    One positive way to look at it is that there are still plenty of stylers like Pixelexit, xenique, audentio (i think) Razorthemes sultan themes and many more independent stylers so all is not lost. *motivates thread* :D

    Glad I managed to get a full refund on Metro before this happened. Shame to see them go though.

    @John, @Russ, @Audentio, @Arty @Qwk86gn plus the many others that are producing good stuff right now. Of course it's a shame, but luckily we've got those guys as a back up :)

    I haven't noticed custom work being slow at all... I've only just recently gotten a break from client work and that's only because my computer died and I have to build a new system.

    That is what I thought. I've been getting tons of pcs and e-mails for custom work (which I don't take on btw) so there is a definite increase on xenforo for people looking for styles and design work.

    Looks like the coder of his design left...

    Sad to see someone who looked promising leave so soon.

    And for those wondering, Audentio isn't going anywhere. Sales are awful, but we will still stick around for the clients who have stuck with us.

    Yep, the forum skin market is a shadow of what it once was (and contrary to popular belief, the XF market is miniscule compared to vB and IPB and will probably be that way for some time still). Custom work may be okay for some, but even that is a "nickle and dime you to death" endeavor in the forum styling world.

    Hate to see Miner go, but stuff happens and design houses come and go all the time. Best of luck to him!

    I wish you the best @Miner you've always offered outstanding styles!

    I must be one of the few that own 10+ theme licenses and don't have any up and running. hahaha.

    At least those that are supporting xF are getting something from me.

    I am with you on owning 10+ licenses and don't use:)
