  1. 15 watts on ALL mods SHOULD feel the same. All things being equal (between your Odin and the Thelema), the 'boost' will be the same for YOU. It does not matter 1 battery vs. 2 or even 4 for your specs. There are many good youtube videos that explain the features of these boards. Here are 2 screenshots for you with similar coils. One a lowly 75C, the other a 400watt capable 250C. Look at max power. 75C 250C I think it was just 'boost' not enabled initially. Enjoy your mod. 👋
  2. Gents, just a bit of commentary. For starters, those that have been here and getting notifications have noticed that 2 posts have disappeared. Each was hidden by the respective author, not me. This post has a singular focus, to stop download count spamming. That's it, that's all. This forum is rather unique, I can't think of any other board mfgr. that caters to their users like this one. I can think of two barely similar that have been completely overrun by spammers. It's too long to go through and quote comments but I'll just say this. It is clear that some registered users

  6. @gwyar When a post contains both German and Ukrainian, or both German and Russian, Chrome cannot translate both to English easily. It's manual for me. (Any one) and English is easy. I appreciate you doing when it's just German and English, but not necessary. From a 'work' perspective, I think it's quicker (time wise) for me to do it.
  7. Guys seriously, way way way back on Page 1 I referred to @zark as the unofficial theme critique master. Like you, I really only use 1 theme, mine. A warmed over tweaked, colorized version of the default. I just wanna vape. I don't want a bunch of useless shit on the screen unless I'm having a problem. I've used 'clean colors' when that very helpful designer was new, mainly to steal the font. I've used Mr.Bottomfeeder's to help with all the English translations, and the native English 'about section'. Another good theme, worthy of being 'featured'. But I always gravitate back to my own. I
  8. Holy jeebus. Once a user creates a theme, reviews can only be commented on by the theme owner for it to stay intact. Occasionally one of us will comment back to the user if it's a somewhat abandoned theme. Reviews are more like a personal conversation with the author. In the regular forum, here, all 3 moderators are very involved. I think I've only ever commented on two or three themes before this incident. Wouldn't a bad review from a moderator on any of your themes really really piss you off?
  9. Chrome's translate does not work when a singular post contains 2 non English languages, so I've been back and forth manually. Just asking if you guys wouldn't mind doing one translation to English on your end. Please.
  10. Man, we're just 3 volunteers. We do have the ability to 'pin' a Theme, and we 3 decided to pin one, when we saw this crap getting out of hand to bring a little recognition to a good helpful designer who also has a good theme. Just click the Downloads link. Not theme park or anything. That's been there a while and should be refreshed. It shows as 'Featured Downloads'. I really don't think we 3 inspect, verify, use many different themes. Maybe change the default?
  11. @Skit Please self edit your post. Leave only positive thoughts and suggestions. For about the gazillionth time this must remain respectful. Please and Thanks man 👍 Tomorrow you will see the downloads for each of the 7 (for the 16th), and moving forward, HERE.
  12. Unfortunately one can only use 8 rudimentary sorting options when looking at the 1,116 themes on the board. And just like many users never change/select the 'any' default regular search criteria, to 'all', in this instance they don't (in my opinion) change from 'recently updated' for Themes. Look at the options, is there a better option? Would it be good to make every downloader have to sign up, and request they leave a review? Under the About File for a theme should we request every Designer ask users to do the above, before making the public? Should I/we add that text to any theme t
  13. @zark Here it is again. Hopefully in very plain English. The themes get recognized by their download count. The only reason for anyone to fudge or fake or inflate a download count would be for internet glory or fame to make it to that panel. Except in this case it was not done singularly. 5 themes were done one shot to hide (or highlight) the prior top 2, perhaps. That is why the prior top 2 were included. And so we end up at 7. I do not know why you are nervous. Don't be nervous. Nothing has been done yet. We are just getting comments. The only suffering for you would be if so
  14. @zark I/we are not blaming anyone. I personally would not want YOU to leave. Fudging the download count, for any reason is WRONG and deceitful. We are not ready to destroy anything, but even you must admit that if the download count of a theme such as yours is >20% wrong then that statistic has no value You are an engaged user and very helpful on many topics, including themes. I can only think of one user that might have a negative perception of you, and that is HIS problem. We look after an entire small community and will not play favorites. We try to be fair to everyone, bu
  15. Here's a look at where we were, and where we are now. These are the 7 mentioned, and once again, I'm only taking a look at theme downloads since the incident. Names sorted alphabetically. Commodore theme. April 11, > 400 download count spamming, since then ~8 total and none since the 15th. Frank theme. Just way too many. Since then >20 spammy on the 15th. Otherwise, total ~20 normal. Khaled theme. starting around 7:30am > 700 download count spamming since then ~8 total mr.bottomfeeder theme. Since then 4 look normal, ~20 look spammy. Sk1t theme. starting around 7:30am &g
  16. @gwyarThank you for your honesty. I can certainly understand the frustration you feel. Hopefully this topic will be the basis we all move forward from. Comrade @zark used to be the unofficial critique master. Because I'm a 'moderator' I try to stay out of reviewing or commenting on the work of others. I look at many themes but only commented publicly on two or three. That 'top panel' is a running weekly count usually hovering mid 80's to the odd 120's, so to see a theme jump over 120 in 12 hours is alarming. To see a theme jump 400 in a day is ludicrous, 600 is just downright crazy. So wh
  17. My honest belief is that you 7 are all fallout. Just laying it all on the table, as another option. We have no idea yet how we as a moderator team will decide. Hence this conversation 😃
  18. The 7 themes that I left the same discreet comment on. The 7 theme owners should all be aware as they were probably notified like you were, yet only you are commenting here.. In your opinion, would you consider this a respectful conversation? I do. Another option would be for us to completely delete the Themes and recreate them, attributed to the respective owner. Download count would start a zero. No comments, no reviews, no followers And I do agree, a captcha seems rather elegant as a start.
  19. There's a whole public thread you're welcome to post in, if you want to engage in a respectful conversation. We moderators will be quick on the trigger finger to delete/modify/hide any posts if it starts to get out of hand. I have not blamed anyone. A mere comment in a theme gets buried and overlooked too easily.
  20. I never said the word 'attacker'. More some internet glory and fame seeker. Just saying, the ONLY PERSON that would want multiple downloads of a particular Theme would be the owner. Except in this case. This was clearly done to right a perceived wrong. I actually applaud the person because it's so glaringly obvious for all to see. We do log and can see quite a bit of information. I won't tell you what, but I will tell you the most outrageous is a user that downloaded his own theme >3,000 times. But here we sit and ponder the future of these 7. Do we hide them for a week fro
  21. What a great comment. We moderators have been aware of the issues, but we'd prefer Evolv spend their time working on meaningful things instead of wasting time on stuff like this. Hell, one had a view count of ~260 with a download count of ~400. Obvious much. You were not the only person to comment/review their own theme, which was called out by another developer. Don't take this personally. Have any suggestions? Hell, if I knew where those counts were kept, a one line script in a Linux /etc/rc2.d file could keep it clean. (depending, depending, depending)
  22. "Probably someone trying to cover their tracks by spamming. I'm not doing this." There's a whole public thread you're welcome to post in, if you want to engage in a respectful conversation. We moderators will be quick on the trigger finger to delete/modify/hide any posts if it starts to get out of hand. I have not blamed anyone. A mere comment in a theme gets buried and overlooked too easily.
  23. Today I left a comment on the Top 5 themes in the panel and the 2 prior top, that there's blatant spamming occurring. Some designers are spamming the system in various ways to make it to that top panel on the front page. JUST STOP! Some of the more ridiculous are designers reviewing their own theme with a 5 star rating. Seriously! Or how about an update on a theme that's supposed to be an unmodified 'original'. How does that get an update? Done only to make it to top of the updated list. Why would a Theme Designer download his own creation? JUST STOP! The behavior is clear, e
  24. April 13, 2021. The download count has been spammed for this theme by an unknown user(s) due to this same action (spamming) from other theme designers. Wanna be losers looking for imaginary internet fame. This same comment is posted for the current 5 themes shown and the prior 2 Top themes.
