    I doubt i will add support for that as default as it adds a lot of clutter, maybe as a mod though

    Graphic information is perceived easier than text. Especially information about the awards. And studios.:whistle::):coffee:

    It may be perceived easier than text but that does not make it any less messy and i wont add mess to the skin (as default) just for icons that 80% of users wont have any interest in. ;)

    This task of the designer, add so that it is not dirty, it was beautiful, informative and user-friendly. That's the problem.

    Hahahahahahahaha!!
    I think that the plugins are installed automatically and so there would be a high number of people who would inadvertently be users :)

    Where such statistics?
    I'm not going to argue with you about it that's all you ever do, i'm talking about Apollo user base not other skins. Apollo is designed to be clean and uncluttered which is how it will stay, the reason mods exist is because most users won't use a feature but a small niche does.

    Not if the skin does not support it they won't ;)

    I would look at the statistics :) Maybe you're right, maybe not. All the same, if you do everything nice and comfortable, it only helps, but does not interfere.

    Well, in the shoes of a lot of bother me. Icon with the user (which is still running, and that it is spinning) for me this extra information in a HTPC. Free space that reduces the amount of output information, etc. But it is for me, someone is needed.
