Unfortunately, your email is directed to the wrong list. For artwork issues, 
the best place to post to is kde-artists at But please don't bother 
posting there unless you have very concrete suggestions how to improve the 
looks, and even better, some time to spare to work on it.

Until then, you will have to live with what the artists dream up for us 
(which, I personally like a lot, by the way). Offending other people's work 
(which you did quite disrespectively also doesn't really meet KDE's friendly 
way of dealing with fellow contributors.

Of course, this often all boils down to taste, so please try to keep this out 
of discussions ...

Actually, that is assumption is wrong.

Thanks for the feedback nevertheless,
