    Love the forum and how its set up. My screen name is VannMann and I am a Super Moderator and themes builder of Windows 7 themes at CreativX.net. I am going to be getting a new Motorola Droid this coming Tuesday (giving Fed-Ex doesn't mess it up) and I always tweak everything I get, From Ipods, PSP, Wii, Xbox360 and soon to be Motorola Droid. I am glad to find a forum that I can call my Android home (man that sounded less G33KY in my head, lol). So if any body can or wouldn't mind throwing me some tips and tricks on how to get started or what to research for the arrival of my phone, I would be oh so grateful. Thanks for a wonderful looking forum. And please do check out some of my themes at CreativX.Net.

    Welcome to the forums Vannman....

    Where to get started? So many options : ) I really don't have a good answer for you because there is so much info to soak up. I'd say start off in the FAQ section and then go from there.

    Enjoy your stay here. Great to have you on board here at DF's

    How do you mean, when making my themes for Windows 7? If so then yes. I build the theme from the ground up with photo shop. I put alot of work into all of them. Some of my friends do simple themes and some do bigger themes (more complete overhaul of the .msstyle file). I prefer to do Bigger ones, takes me about a week to a theme, giving my work schedule and all.

    Its my real name for the most part, lol. It was given to me as a nick name of sorts as a kid, so I just adopted it as a screen name. I am guessing your is about the same?
