And that's fine I am glad you liked it and didn't want to wait, I actually have already changed it to something a little different, but that's not the point. I asked every tester not to reuse any unique feature I had in the alpha release as I want them to be presented as a whole with the release of my skin to the general public.
Oh man that totally sucks. I'm really sorry to hear that has happened to you. I mean, we all borrow ideas from each other. This is one of the great things about the skinning community - the great ideas stick and get improved upon and most of the chaff gets left behind. But to have an idea, design or code completely ripped off before release is beyond the pale. This has happened a couple of times before and it is totally disappointing to see.
I'm just glad you haven't been completely discouraged by this as some of your ideas that I've seen have been really unique and interesting. So all I'm going to say is keep up the great work, don't get discouraged, and I'm excitedly looking forward to your eventual release whenever that happens!
