    Today I tried changing the skin on the Weather Clock that (as I remember) came preinstalled on my slide only to be told that the refresh had failed. After that my clock looked like this:

    I tried refreshing the clock............. failed.

    I tried sending the widget to the trash bin and placing it back on the homescreen........ no luck.

    Tried power cycling my Slide......... no luck.

    Did a master reset........ now the Weather Clock widget is no where to be seen.

    This further pisses me off because now when i go to the Market instead of seeing "Apps, Games, Downloads" at the top I now get "Apps, Games, T-mobile" :mad:

    With the widget skin wizard in the weather clock options and using a skin download via the android market.

    Well, the clock widget that comes installed doesn't do skins. The one with the "widget skin wizard" is the weather and toggle widget app that is a market download. Perhaps this could be your problem?

    Could be..

    But I do not remember installing it onto my slide.

    And what I had prior to the master reset did not have any of the toggle options.

    I do however have the Weather clock toggle purchased from back in the Behold II days....... but it never kept track of time so I never bothered (or so I think) installing it on my Cliq or Slide.

    I have since went on to try the WCT and so far so good I just wish I wasn't wasting ROM space with the toggle programs that come with it.

    That's weird. My wife's Slide did something similar a couple of days ago. The hour and the first of the minute numbers were smaller than they were supposed to be so the clock just didn't look right. It's the stock app, and trashing then replacing it fixed it...

    For the Reds theme I used the fuzzy kittens theme along with pictures from the reds website.
    The Bengals them is just the puppy pride them with pictures I googled.

    Sorry I cant help further I dont think there is a way to upload my theme and keep it intact.

    Well I can tell you from the screen shot that you posted that its the weather and toggle widget AKA weather widget Donate and not the stock HTC flip clock.

    You need to boot into recovery and do a full wipe.
