You're saying three threads is too many, even when the front page displays 20? I didn't split and abandon the old one for some mischievous end, like depriving other skins of coverage or creating the illusion of popularity. The fact is that thread was moving at 2-3 pages a day, every day, making it impossible to navigate or extract information from. Hell, I check the forum daily and couldn't find what I was looking for.
People post to say thanks and to suggest new things. They post to report bugs, many of which have been noted already. They post to ask for help, often requiring a half-dozen posts from various people offering solutions. Throw these together at the rate described above and it's chaos; all I'm doing is restoring order for the benefit of everyone.
Of course, if every skin author did this then the forum would become bogged down - I understand that. So if the mods decide that a sub-forum would be better then I'm more than happy with that. So far, though, the response to the new threads has been almost entirely positive, so in principle it's the right idea.
UPD: I've mentioned the idea of sub-forums for popular skins to the XBMC team.

There is a problem with the episode-level wallpaper: when there's no fanart, nothing displays. I'll look into fixing it today.

The torrent links on the website don't register as download links, and clicking on them produces a page of gibberish characters. I typically have no trouble with downloading torrent files-- Something wrong with the link formatting?

Probably. Just right-click for now.

I thought about that but then you need to choose a profile when using... PITA. I'd rather just lock the settings since there is no reason to be in those 99.9% of the time anyway. I never understood why people wanted access to them from places other then the config menus.

Are the other threads complaining? Are the electrons jealous?
.. yes, I'm kidding.
Mike this is OT and should be in PM or a new thread in the main forum.
... We really need subforums for more popular skins (AEON, Vision, Vinci, etc) but there was pushback on this. It is reasonable, and common on the net, to have a few threads for a popular item (skin or whatever) since one massive thread is too much to manage. Having posts, no matter what type, on another site defeats the purpose of having xbmc.org... the point is one-stop-shop community, thus having a tighter knit community, more sharing, more progress.
... and now back to our regularly scheduled AEON Support Thread

DJH, I have to ask you a question...
Ever since your first 720p versions of the backdrops Ive saved them all to my computer. Later they came in 1080p BPM, and then JPG.
I've sorted them out last week, and found out that there's still some backdrops in 720p you havnt releast in 1080p. Is that possible.
I've got a little bit crazy and I want them all, caus some of the 720p's was really nice. Also some of the versions you got in 1080p BMP i still cant find at your site.
Here are some thumbs of the picture Ive cant find anymore..

I realize I might sound a little dumb, but I couldn't find the answer since I didn't see anyone else asking this.
I downloaded the latest Aeon skin and clean installed it onto Plex, the osxbmc. I retrieved all the information for my TV Shows and yet two weird things happen in show case mode. the first is that when I go on episode level, the thumbnails are in poster shape so the image is squeezed. The second is that for some reason I don't get the plot comming onto the screen when holding for a moment...or never.
also a suggestion about cast.. Why cant we retrieve cast pictures from TVDB and cross them with other movies or TV shows they appeared in? I know there is this option on movies but not on this skin.. anyway, I didn't see it. just an idea though, since the pictures are already there...

About the plot, play a little witheht hide plot option, I think you have to enable and disable it again.
(I think it was the hide plot option under "video", not sure though)
