I hate to say this... but why? what is the goal of creating a "theme" like this? not sure what the goal is here... not flaming you as I am interested in Docky myself but not sure what you are going for here...

It's a tutorial on how to make Docky themes, not a theme.
I guess I am just not getting... again not trying to be a pain in the butt, but I am not seeing a practical use for this... I understand it isnt a theme but again, just not seeing a use for it. Is this leading into something or am I just missing it. I a m new to Ubuntu myself so forgive me.

If you're not interested in making themes for Docky then it's no use to you.
its not really that, I am interested in themes and if I can make them thats even better, but like I said I just am not getting it. I guess if I actually try to make a theme I might understand. I will have to try to give it a shot later when i get home from work. Again, I am not trying to be a pain. I am just trying to understand...

Awesome tutorial!!!! I'll try some designs later.

It'd be nice to discover how to change the separator and the little indicators which are below the icons!

Thanks. Well they can only be themed if you know dive into the source code, which is unfortunate.
