    Nice, clean theme. Arial with 1px letter-spacing is a little hard to read though. BTW specify ‘Helvetica Neue’ before Arial for Mac users ;).

    Thank you for calling my attention to it :) I “em-ified” letter spacing and added the Mac treat. I am grateful for your comment :)

    Very nice! Great idea having the sliding part so there’s no appearance of clutter. Not sure if anybody would ever find it though if it wasn’t mentioned to them! Good to see it works so well, though, because I’ve seen much ‘fancy stuff’ break lately, but it looks like you got it right :-)

    Let me get this right. You are feeding in images and words from other web sites and putting them on your web site? Why, that’s plain and simple theft! Definitely a NO from me.

    Let me get this right. Are you familiar with the particular licenses these images are published? Not really, it seems… And you are advised to use your own flickr images – stealing from yourself? Hm. As for the words: your own words, as you publish your links and descriptions: theft again? Strange… And of course, you are free to say no to the template, fair enough.

    Totally never saw the slider until Peter’s comment. I like it!

    Perhaps they’ve never shown the X-Factor where you live, Zoltan. If you follow Simon’s link and read the paragraph, I think you’ll see it differently :-)

    @Thame: Thanx, it’s my fault :) I will find a way to make it clear.

    @Peter: yes, right after my answer I clicked on the link :)

    “Simon” said the same about me stealing, so it’s clear whoever that is is just being lame for the sake of it (or he’s really that dense). I think this is a nice template. I didn’t notice the drop down either but now that I know it’s there, I think the tab is enough. It doesn’t seem to be primary information up there anyway, so let it be a treat people can find. ;)

    Thanks, Natalie, that was my idea originally ;)

    I’m sort of new to Text pattern and love the template, but am not figuring out what is wrong with the comments? They are not working right, I just get the whole (original template)page unformatted really…

    Sorry because I know this is probably very simple

    Heath, I don’t know what the problem could be – comments should work just fine with the default TXP settings, as I haven’t changed anything regarding this. Could you show me an example of this problem?
