Sorry for the confusion, suites, I meant suites.
I do think that they can be useful and good for the site, maybe they are. They're just not for me because I don't think they are used responsible or to their full potential.
Sleepydawg, I did not mean to indicate that a screenshot contained spam, just that when one user posts a bunch of them a day, they are not showing off the desktop they are using everyday, they are mass producing screenshots for some other reason.
BigDog, using the screenshots to show works-in-progress is a wonderful use of that gallery. You are so right there.
Oh ok..I see the 'Suite' gallery but I assumed that was for original work that several skinners put together in a joint effort.
We have had the discussion of more than one screen shot a day before and the Shots not containing any details. But unless its made one of the rules of screen shots - that is how it will remain. I have always said one great shot is worth 5 tossed together ones. But, Its been this way since I came here and I doubt it will change.
But I still think screen shots are worth the effort for me to look at.
Since I came to WC I have seen quite a few go from screen shots to skinning. I can name a dozen ......some are no longer here anymore but are still skinning and or making walls.
I started out in the Screen shots with only the free 30 day trials of Stardock products. When I found that I couldnt tweak as sufficiently as I wanted with free trials , I purchased Object Desktop.
So ..I still think Screen Shots serve a purpose.
