I was looking through the galleries and found the member jasnasto
I noticed the user from the top ten authors and reacted since I've never seen the name before.
I then looked at the persons themes and found the user had a huge amount of uploads.
But has never posted a single message on the boards, never entered a themechallenge.
And one thing that's almost certain about those that has previously been in the top 10 is that they've been here for a long time and supplied themes, comunicated and won awards.

This person hasn't.
And looking at the themes I'm pretty sure I saw one that Spawn has made, I might be wrong though.

And they are all the same, babes, cars, guys.
Sorry, but look up the user jasnasto and investigate.
If it's another thief please ban him/her, or atleast reset the entire account.

Now IF this person has made all these themes I'll shut up.

i think we need to remember that not everybody who uploads also posts on the forum. That in itself means nothing. Also a choice for a certain topic (car babe guy?) means very little imho. We all have our interests and dislikes.

In fact I have to say most themes have a similar styling.... which to me would suggest that they were indeed made by the same author :blink:

However: I found one theme that is not leeched as such.... http://www.mobile9.com/4images/details.php?image_id=6647 just the softkeys and statusbar (and presumably also the highlights) were 'borrowed' off my Honda theme i did for a good friend of mine a while back.

hmmmm i guess he must have liked them :haha:

In any case........... i doubt any themes of anybody like spawn would have gotten uploaded here unnoticed to be honest. We do have gallery screening.

I downloaded one of jasnasto's themes earlier.. cutest ever. :wub: http://www.mobile9.com/4images/details.php?image_id=7018

I checked it for you just now and indeed the xml file reads jasnasto as creator :)

as far as i'm concerned we're all 'innocent till prioven otherwise'

I would not like to see a trend of 'spreading rumours' develop.

In fact I think it would be better if we all agreed here and now NOT to accuse anybody unless we know for sure (and therefore can prove) that themes are stolen.

I wouldn't want to see people go out on witch hunts on nothing but a rumour.

Don't you agree? :)

No certainly we shouldn't start pointing fingers without good reasons.
And in this case I'll admit I might have jumped the gun a little.
If this person has made all these themes in this short time I'm impressed... With the speed that is ;)

I hope I was wrong about him/her being a thief and if so I appologise to my friends here.

Zleepy, another themer is N_Pellas, which has got almost 5 top ten themes every month, but never ever written here in the forums. Half of the members, as far as i'm concerned, here on the boards, never ever written a single message. They mostly come here to download themes or post their own in the gallery.

And i have to agree with vlamm that we shouldnt discuss whether people leech or dont. These past days, that's been hot topics, but i really don't care. the ones who takes others themes, dont have samq qualifications as the great themers. then they take others, posting them in their own name. but i really don't care.

Yeah, I've seen Jasnasto's themes on other sites too, they are the same. They hadn't really sparked any suspicion in me. His/her themes are good too! Maybe they are retired or something

guys, if you are worried if the authors are legit or not, kindly PM the senior admins. We can verify their identity and take appropriate actions if needed.

We would prefer these matters not taken to the public forum or your own hands least upsetting the accused authors (yes, there was such a case affecting a great themer).

i guess this member is not interested in participating in forums. he gets kick off it in doing themes, uploading and watching his name in top 10 best authors (or not?) well that's my opinion. the only remarks about this member that i have is that he makes so many themes with similar images, for instance shown in cartoon folder, but with lot of theming his work is improving.
well i no longer satisfy with quantity but with quality of my themes.

as for stealing someone's themes for example i saw august's theme which was posted here on mobile9 on this site http://<url snipped>.<url snipped>.net/prv.php?id=12132 but added under a different users name, so i'm confused... :blink:
