Please be fair! This is not restarting from point zero. There is an
absolute progression here if you start from the first iteration to these

We have had two shots to get broad feedback. Alpha and Beta. Are we not
allowed to make improvements on the artwork based on the feedback we get
from the Beta?

If not, I don't understand what the point is.

This is NOT anarchy. There is a definite process and I have worked
really really hard to make sure we meet the dates as best we can. We
have done better as a team this release than any other release before -
we've never had artwork in the alpha before.

Bubble PNG is a texture I made for a brush. It's not a wallpaper.

Still I think we should go back to first background - it was nice,
