Monthly Skinning Competition Discussion -- #4 ended

Recommended Posts

Sorry I don't usually vote in this stuff but, where do I vote?

I'm the one who should be sorry. I got wrapped up playing a video game last night and forgot all about it. I'll post up the instructions later tonight. Voting will be open 'til the end of the month.

You know, I'm such a stupid...

Having "...send the PM to me..." in a post of Helio's would indeed cause confusion, would it not? Changed'D.

I believe Helio will be back in town tomorrow. We'll consolidate the PMs we both got for the final tally so that the trū winnar will win. :wink:

Google just seems too basic. Theres not all too much that can be done. We should do an os pack.

Custimize the logon screen for Vista or Xp.. Then, new folder icons and a whole new layout. Seeing how we have a month to skin something, we might as well do something big.

Trust me, folder icons take a long time to make, and if you're able to make one in under an hour, it won't look very pretty. Then the window borders and MS theme... it hurts just thinking about it (I've tried). As for the logon screen, that won't be much of a problem.

The sky's the limit for the Google homepage. I've seen some and they look terrific! Nice background images, new logo, better layout, and more seamless look. Too bad I can't find that page anymore :(

Ive made several folder icons. They dont take too long, at least mine didnt. They dont look bad either. And besides, you dont have to make much icons. Just a couple. We've got a month to do it.

Surprise surprise! Helio returns to zero PM's!

Hey! It's not tomorrow yet! Get back out of town! :P

On the topic of the next MSC, I think Google would be a cool idea, but again, it'd probably be something far too simplistic for just one submission...

Well maybe you could make it more complicated. Like you have to add the regular google.com, then an IG (With the clock and calendar) search results for paint.NET (Strict safe search) then image and video and news results, cached version of a page, I hope you get the point.

I'd rather have it where you have no limits. You can do anything weather it'll be just a few changes here and there, or what I plan on doing-- a complete overhaul of the UI.

Google just seems way too simple. It would just be a quick, 1 hour thing. Seeing how we have a month, we should really do something big, like an os pack, or an actual progam such as winamp.

There not that much more advance. I didnt know we could vote for two, so I voted for one then hit submit. I dont know if I can vote for a second one now! I dont see how.

I had the same problem as Frojo, though i wasn't going to vote on anything else then the OS pack.
