#issue7329 stop your frustration. People started to create their themes as soon as such opportunity appeared. No wonder they submitted more than one work.

Snow Day: слишком много цветов на один пиксель в сообщении от меня: команда — 1 цвет, время — 2 цвет, статус сообщения — 3 цвет, фон — 4 цвет. Сама тема очень понравилась!

Thanks for your comment! I added some extra colors to that theme to make it a little more interesting and not only blue/white, but it is personal preference. The "/start" command is in a different color so that it stands out, but regular text is not brightly colored. I will consider toning down the colors in future edits if it is too much :)
How did you manage to do 3 additional themes for 2 OS a day before the deadline (because the message about what can be done up to 5 themes instead of the 1st one appeared less than a day before the deadline)? This is ABSOLUTELY impossible. I have quite reasonable suspicions that these themes are simply taken from the Internet and slightly changed for participation in the contest.

P.S. Sorry for my English

I worked on my themes the entire time, so I didn't create the additional ones a day before the deadline. Yes, this would be impossible. Many people were already working on multiple themes, and this is why they increased the number of submissions. There is no need to accuse everyone with more than one theme of cheating :)
Sepia Blues. Only minor issue: looks like you haven't changed the
default color for "this username is available" message. As of now it looks very bright. Mountain Solitude: Really liking the color scheme and the implementation, it is perfect. Dracula Mint: very nice theme as well, although darker messages in selected state almost remain the same, so hard to distinguish from non-selected ones. Snow Day: agreed with the first issue. Overall, very decent themes.

I did leave the "this username is available" message as a somewhat bright green so that it would be clear to the user that it is a positive action (vs the red color that shows when the username is not available). It is sometimes hard to distinguish red/green if they are similar tones, so I like to make the green lighter than the red to be more colorblind friendly. But you might be right that it is too bright for the theme, so I may adjust the color :)

Dracula: I agree that selected state for out bubbles is too close to the original. I'll fix that in a future update.

Thanks for your feedback!

I invite you all to chat to the creators of themes. We will communicate and create new themes 👉
> I worked on my themes the entire time, so I didn't create the additional ones a day before the deadline.

But this is a violation of the rules of the contest. Themes had to be done specifically for the contest on deadline time. You can't just take and upload those themes that you created earlier. This is at least not fair, because you had any time to create them, but the rest had only 2 weeks, and as a maximum - these are violations of the rules of the contest (if I understand correctly).

What is the point of the contest, if people like me, who made the themes specifically for the contest for a limited period, have to compete with those who made the themes before the contest and who had unlimited time for this? It is just pointless.
iOS: shared media tabs are broken. Otherwise well done.

UPD: This is not the author's fault.

Thanks for the feedback! I checked the shared media tabs, and I'm not exactly sure what you mean that they are broken. I think what happened is that they are not custom colors, because at the time when I made the theme, there were no specific variables to change those colors. It looks like new vars were added recently. Or if I am not understanding the issue correctly, could you provide a screenshot of where the tabs are not working?
Nobody added any issues yet...
