Thanks, but I meant for the iPhone 4. I'm still on SL.

I've been on 4.1 since last Oct, I think, and every since themeing iOS5 has been a nightmare.

According to this comment on Reddit, that message has been seen at least five months ago, even when the forums were back up. So, that message is probably old and completely irrelevant to the current situation with MacThemes.

Surely, they had to have had some sort of presence outside of their own forum (e.g. Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc.), which would allow us to contact the administrator?

I can confirm that Macthemes is officially over and done. Sad news but since you can barely theme a Mac now, there was no point in maintaining the site for wallpapers and iOS icons...

Could have at least given us a warning, so we could grab what we wanted instead of watching all those themes & tweaks go down the drain.

Oh well.

Don't mean to be rude, but where did you get this from? Just seems a bit weird that macthemes was still active then it just disappears.

iOS themes and icons were the only reasons I ever even went to MacThemes.

I got the confirmation from one of the main admins. I was a beta tester when the new forum was in the works, so I had access to inside information.

In a nutshell, community dried up, single-digit posting per day, admins too busy with work and family and none of the newer/younger members willing to step up and help out.

For more info, you should ping Phil Ryu - the owner of the site.

The end of an era

It looks like the gui customization aspect on the Mac is soon to be over completely. I read a post on iconfactory.com last month that they will not be updating Candybar because Apple will soon be locking down even the icon customization end as well. It's a sad day. Back in 1995 I was immersed in icon and theme creation. But like everyone else I guess, I just haven't been interested in it.

Yes... I'm limited to SL because of my first gen mini.

So I can still get by with ThemePark.

I still use CrystalClear for my themeing addiction though...

http://www.marsthemes.com/crystalclear/

It's the only viable solution left at the moment.

I think they were early pulling the plug on MacThemes... there was a lot more to that place, and it did have a community spirit I thought.

Used to be, then the community changed when registrations stopped or before that. The place slaughtered new members and any new work if you weren't a well known recognised creator. Quite a few well known creators left because the place was so critical. Hardly anything was said back then without ridicule on work.

There was a terrible, terrible elite status brewing on the forum. So to speak it was like watching terrible spoiled rich kids that looked down on everyone. Even though a lot were adults.

All of the things you just said were true, i use to port font's there, help people out in the request forum and post my desktop screenshots, Iconpaper is also dead.

There was a certain elitism brewing on Mac Themes, that can be sure. I'm really sad over it, I used to pop into the Jaku thread and made quite a few icons I'm annoyed the site was just shut down with absolutely no warning, so all that hard work - and the work of others - is just gone. There was no message or warning as fair as I know, it just went down, but something went wrong with the site when they just stopped all new registrations IMO.

Seems a shame now the 6.1 JB is going to be out.

Yeah, you're right. It was here today, gone tomorrow. But new registrations were closed for at least a few years before it disappeared completely.

I was able to acces the site just fine today:
