I was just thinking about the community suite and stuff and an idea has come up that I wanna chuck at you.

I was thinking that we could do a tribute suite to someone who has recently left WC, that being BoXXi. He's been a big part of this community and I think we could all put together this suite as a tribute to someone who's meant a bit to the community.

I was thinking we could take one of his blind/icon sets and tweak/insert complete suite out of it

Thoughts?

TheD2JBug, a very nice and thoughtful community project. I'm sure that BoXXi would appreciate it.

No info was given as to why he left, but he is missed. I want to be a part of this, if I may. Just let me know what I can do!

This is a totally great idea... a tribute suite in BoXXi's honour would be a pretty special way to show the community's appreciation for his participation and wonderful contributions over the years.

Yup, it has to be a goer.

Count me in too ... what a fab idea ..I echo starkers sentiments all the way ...

I always thought that his Mobo Windowblind was the best one he did , and he said that was one of his favourites .... WWW Link

I was thinking 'fruitloops' would make a great tweaking project, it has no cursors, icons ect...dosent have any matching anything.....and i certainly could tweak the wb into something extra special.

then again, maybe we should vote on it? what does everyone think?

....i know fruitloops is very colourful.....but with my tweaking, it can still be gorgeous, but i would problibly tweak some of the colours and make it more unison and less fruitloopy.....but still delicious.........

Well So far we have
Fruitloops
Mobo
My thought was Creamware ( but there's an Xion skin and some cursors

My thought is let us all decide. And once we have a consenus ( mabye a poll ) we can then begin.

So give out your choices. If someone can list the potentials and have us kinda vote that would be great
