Helping WC Community Members

Over the last couple of weeks we have had some negative drama on WinCustomize.  The weather widget alone has caused a ton of frustration alone, so I wanted to do something to bring some positive vibes to WC, and to show that we are a community.

Since the economy is in a bad situation, I know we have many members on WC who have been hit with very hard times.  Trying to help someone who has lost a job for instance can be difficult, but I do know things like hobbies and friends can make a difference in attitude, which is a big step in moving again in the right direction.

I wanted to put an offer out there for people that might want to help other members with a WC subscription or even software gifts.  There are people here who would like to contribute to the community, and we would like to give a helping hand in getting them started if they can’t do it on their own.

I’m going to start the ball rolling by offering 2 WinCustomize subscriptions for two people who are not current subscribers.  Just tell us in 50 words or less why you would like to have a WC subscription, and what the community means to you.  You need not give any personal details about your situation if you wish, I would just like to hear how skinning and the community might help you in general.

If there are any other community members that would like to help, I would recommend gifting applications to someone which is easily done in Impulse.  Perhaps an upcoming skinner that needs a full version of WindowBlinds for instance, instead of relying on the trial or friends to test, for instance.  If you would like to do that, you can PM me with details.

Great idea. We all know of members who have experienced financial, emotional etc problems recently. How's about members nominating these members for one of the subscriptions. Something like I nominate member XXXXXX because...

Hi ID,

No any problems. I have at least two redundant subscription (I even can't remember the reason, but I bought subscription until 2012)...

Please, take these subscriptions and send to people who will use them at the present. (If it's possible of course).

Wonderful idea!!! 

 

I have, in a box, a brand new Logitech trackball mouse.  It says for Windows95, but I think it could also be used for other Windows, I hope.  Anyway, I stopped using this kind ( I have one I used to use) because my thumb did not like it. If someone could use it please email me an address for mailing.   I realize it is not a subscription, nor software, but a little free *hardware*, it is what I can do right now.

You can double that, ID.

I'll put in for two as well.

Curiously another member suggested something quite similar via PM just yesterday.....freaky...

Alright 50 words or less....So ive been a member here since 2004 and in that time I have made some really good friends, a few bad ones, learned how to make icons, then Icon packs and finally wallpapers. None of which would have come about if it werent for this website and/or the help, guidance and support of it's many members. My subscription ran out about a year ago, and then the ads started. I eventually got used to those but somehow I began to feel as if I wasnt contributing to the site the way I should be which in turn led me to not contributing to the site the way I could, I have felt very disconnected lately and I dont like it. Whether or not I am eligible to recieve a WC subscription makes no matter, I feel better just talking about it! good karma for you ID, Jafo, TBC, Butch, VAD and 2 of 3 for paying it forward! Skinny

How's about members nominating these members for one of the subscriptions.

I would like to nominate sViz....our community's quiet achiever....

and also support Skinhit....who we've been missing somewhat of late.....would be great to get him 'connected' again...

If any of those subscriptions are still available, I'd like to see one going to Uvah. He's had his share of setbacks recently, but has still kept his sunny outlook and his interest and contribution to WC alive.

I believe this is a really good thing to do. May I offer a thought? OK, I will  . How about a WC Scholarship program for novice skinners who participate in the community also?

Just a thought.

Also, maybe a Zubaz Typing Award (JK, bud)?

In 50 words or less? Hmmm...I can do that...I think.

My situation is slowly improving by one micro step at a time. Going for an evaluation on a shoulder injury today and am looking at limited disability. Not much but its a start. Still haven't got my PC yet but that's OK...I've already decided to build my own when then time comes. As far as the WC community is concerned...while I can't buy a sub at the moment I'd like to see one go to a beginner. This is a great hobby and, for me anyway, an outlet for my semi-burned out brain cells to wrap around. A really cool idea. Congrats to all those putting their two cents in. You guys rock!!

That is a rather awesome idea.

In the same vein . . I'd like to see a stronger Master/Apprentice program.  Where a master takes on a specific skinner (in addition to just helping out everyone) amd tries to make them great.  Greater than the Master.  And they'd have to submit thier Master-piece to a board of Masters/mods etc to be accepted.

Crazy talk and off topic . .  carry on.  Sorry for the interuption.

I like the idea, ID, and people coming forward to donate. I'd like to see a PayPal type system so that we can donate to the skinners if we want to.
