You’re right. The point of it was: I was thinking he was a new person who was trying to prove himself by showing that he has knowledge of this thing that was lauded or considered special by the community, when in actuality the thing in question is about as basic/default as it gets (the color theme). I was just trying to help him realize that he doesn’t have to do anything “cool” to be accepted by the community, just be himself, be REAL, and the rest will follow.
But maybe I was reading too much into it. It was also partially just a lighthearted joke.
So djwav, welcome to the community!
P.S. I don’t listen to vsnares and never really saw what all the hype was about, but I do respect his technical skills.
Edit: Just in case the reader doesn’t know what is being referred to, there is a video of a vsnares song playing in Renoise which used to be thrown around the Renoise forums quite a lot.
Edit2: Stated another way: This person new to Renoise sees a vsnares song in Renoise and thinks “Oh, since vsnares is a technical wizard, he must have this super top secret color theme too”, not realizing that the color theme is just the default from the old version of Renoise that was used at the time. Simple as that.
I’ll stop now. Reaaally not trying to cause a situation.
