Stardock will be closed for the week starting on Monday, June 29th and we will be returning on Monday, July 6th. We will be monitoring support tickets and forums during this time, but expect delays in responses during this time.
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.
Was wondering what programs you guys use to create dreams. I would very much like to take this one picture I have of a sailboat in the pacific and make the water realistic. Also I have some great video of volcanoes from Hawaii that would make a great dream. What do I use to make this happen? I am a complete novice at this stuff, so any help is appreciated. Thanks!

If you have DeskScapes, you also have the DreamMaker app. DreamMaker just compiles and makes the file available for DeskScapes, it doesn't create any animations or effects.
You would need to do that separately.
delve-miller, You may want to PM this person as he or she has made a lot of Dreams over the past few weeks or more. I'm sue he or she will reply back to you.
Thanks Don. When in doubt I like to cover myself and be careful not to get in trouble.
