When to create a user account
I haven't had much time to spend on the site lately. I have been noticing that there are some "bots" or "kiddie" scripts that have been trying to abuse the site, however.
Due to this, I have changed account creation to require administrator approval. Sorry for the inconvenience.
User accounts are only needed if you intend to post content or get involved with modifying/adding themes in the SVN repository.
My plans for this site were never for social networking, so unless you plan on getting involved with theming, you shouldn't need to create an account here. Just enjoy the themes. ;-)
