Easily one of the best GTK themes to appear in recent times.

The alternative metacity theme, however, appears not to have rounded corners.

Thank you for nice comment.
Alternative metacity theme shouldn't have bottom rounded corners.

An absolutely gorgeous theme that reminds me of older versions of Ubuntu's "Impression" theme, which was always one of my favorites!

Two minor complaints:

- Certain parts of the MacUltimate icon set don't show up well against the black panels; the Ubuntu menu icon and the volume control icon are both black as well, so they're hard to see. This is the main reason why I'm using WoW-Dark instead.

- There's no "urgent" flashing notification to signify changes to applications running in the taskbar (MUCK clients, IRC clients, etc.). This is the only real hangup I have with WoW; is this something you could add?

As I said, a wonderful theme, one I'm using right now, and hope to be using for a while!

I noticed that,for icons, and I will change default icon set to Jey!style icons.Thanks for bug report,I don't use chat clients and that's why I didn't noticed that problem.Certainly I will fix it.

Thank you! =) There are a couple of other things I'd like to see, but these are entirely matters of personal preference:

- Most themes have a menu button in the upper-left corner of their windows; WoW does not. Because WoW places its window title text in the top-center, this is not usually a problem, but it can get cut off if the text happens to be very long (because the "button" to open the menu is still there, it's just invisible). I don't know if you'd want to implement this or not since Lucid and later releases are gravitating toward placing their min-max-close buttons in that spot anyway, but since yours haven't been moved there (yet), adding a button like the ones you use on the right might help your windows look a little more balanced. This is all purely aesthetics, and just a suggestion. =)

- By design, WoW uses a lot of shades of black and gray. This is fine, and is part of why I'm using it, but sometimes it's a little too dark, even when using the "light" version of the theme; this is most noticeable in Firefox, where WoW assigns a dark gray background to the drop-down address bar. This can make addresses hard to read unless you highlight them with your mouse (this is a common problem with "dark" themes, and part of why I have a hard time finding one that I can comfortably use). You may want to consider using a lighter shade or even a white background here so the text is more readable, at least for the "normal" version of the theme; the same goes for the dark gray highlighting used for text and desktop objects, which can make them difficult to see (the black file folders used in the JEY icon theme become almost invisible when selected).

I'm sorry to nitpick, but I really like the work you've done with this theme, and I hope it becomes one that I can use without any hesitation. =)

Thanks again!

I really like it, just one thing that I find distracting: the Buttons are a bit too elevated.

Might look even more consistent if they followed the style of the breadcrumbs elements.

You have highly beveled buttons, yet flat tabs, gradient menubar and sunken-border breadcrumbs and flat window-bar-buttons.

I know it's a matter of taste and I am 'just another griper' - but wanted to give some constructive critique instead of just stating the obvious: "One of the absolutely best gnome-themes around."

Thanks.
