The last community skin we did was the Holiday Community Suite back in 2009.  I wouldn't mind doing another winter holiday suite, but that's for later in the year.

http://forums.wincustomize.com/363398/

So lets start getting ideas for the next community suite.  Do we go for a season like Spring or Summer?  Another holiday?  A different type of theme?

Lets hear it and discuss it and get moving on the next one.

Quoting Uvah,
Smx and horizontal rainy

 

Quoting DaveBax,
Want to make a Rainlendar? Hopefully these instructions will help.

thanks a lot Dave... a great guide for people to keep and refer to.... 

 

Quoting DaveBax,
I didn't get into everything in the ini file only the things that were really important and will allow one to complete a Rainy.

Maybe one day when you have some quiet time.. you may wish to follow up with an advanced one?....  

Instructions much appreciated... thanks...

Quoting Uvah,

Question. Should I upload?

Ross I wouldn't think yet. I know Brian is making another Rainy, I believe. Hoping Tim is making some docks. Hoping Jim's problem isn't to serious as he has a great looking winstep. Just my thought as there is no rush as far as I'm concerned. Don't worry I will use your smx whenever that is. lol.

 Brian, finish yours. They are both different, I for one want to have choices. As of right now there are 4 wallpapers, Neones', Jims' 2 and mine. The more the better. So don't quit now or your friends just might photoshop you !!!

I will echo what teddybearcholla said, each skinner will take a different look or approach of how the may make a particular skin.  What this means is the community gets to see how you can use the provided graphics and still be unique.

Uvah, have a question on Rainlendar, which version do I need to run it?  I'm using v2.11 Lite and it's not looking right, Sat and Sun dates look like both over reqular, seeing a double image.  Question on SysMetrix, what do all the little buttons do or am I just supposed to press each one?  Oh, I'm on Windows 7.

You'll need version 0.21. I don't do the newer one because its such a pain in the rear. As for the buttons, I usually include six as standard, web browser, control panel, etc. There are also six that are for external programs like ASC, MalwareBytes, Photoshop and the like. The four next to where it says HTML are for the color charts included with the skin. The red one calls up Xion and the ones next to it are for the media player.

Okay Uvah, I have both 0.21. and the newest version and the dates for the weekend (Sat & Sun) running on the older versions looks the same.  I will do a SS and add it here.

I could create some additional matching icons for specific apps etc.

Quoting AceMatrix,
anyone have any requests or suggestions for some additional app icons.....so far I have a Winamp & windows media player completed. I'm now working on a VLC media player and a few other app icons as well. There may be many that I have not thought of , so some feed back would probably help me immensely.

c'mon DT... the finish line is in sight....  

my critique was to help ya.. not have you drop it...

I like the idea of the tan/orange idea for the centre as a change.....if you need help with the colour picking from the taskbar button... I'll take a range and put up here for you to choose from...

 

Edit... like so...       (could be good colours for the transparent one also..)
