.how much would a custom skin go for?..maybe $8.00 ?
would you be willing to put in 40 hrs for $8.00?
i think maybe you're confusing skins for sale (those purchased by anybody) with a custom skin. A custom skin would be one designed for you. A one of a kind skin that no one else would have.
$8 for a custom skin woud be really cheap - if it took only 40 hours would mean you willing to pay $0.20 an hour for a one of a kind skin
I'm thinking the only place to find someone willing to work for $0.20 an hour would be in a really under developed part of the world and probably wouldn't be able to afford a conputer and/or internet access so will never see your request
on the other hand, maybe a skinner will mull it over and decide to some day give the theme a shot
