Okay folks, taking up from where Island Dog left off, Ideas for a Community Theme Project - Holiday Edition, I thought it would be nice to continue this with a Valentines Day Theme.
I haven't jumped out here and taken responsiblity for much of anything so i thought it would be nice to take the lead for a ommunioty project for a Holiday Theme.
What do you say?
My idea, subject to further input from the community.
Valentines Day Theme Pack with a Dream as being the core for the Theme
This would include at the minimum: (updated to show skin volunteers)
•WindowBlinds theme (for XP, Vista and Win 7) - k10w3
•DesktopX Theme - RedneckDude
•DesktopX Widgets - RedneckDude
•CursorFX theme - Vampothika
•Dream - CarGuy1
•Rainlendar - RedneckDude
•RightClick Skin - Nimbin
•ScreenSaver Skin (based on the Dream) - CarGuy1
•Icons (IP or just some dock icons) - Vampothika
•Object Dock backgound - RedneckDude, DisturbedComputer
•Wallpaper (based on the Dream) - CarGuy1
•Logons (based on the Dream) - CarGuy1
•BootSkins (based on the Dream) - CarGuy1
(If you would like to do a skin that is not listed please leave a comment on the thread)
At the end this would all be wrapped up in a Theme Manager suite, I have to do something.
We need ideas for a unique name plus design ideas for the Dream. If someone is all ready working on a Dream, all the more better.
Now, I'm a non-skinner so you folks need to let me know if there is enough time to pull this together for Valentines day. We are only talking a little more than five weeks as we should have it done in time for folks to use the theme. In that line of thinking the Theme probably should not just say Happy Valentines Day in words but show more of what Valentines Day means between two people who care about one another, if that makes sense.
Okay, so lets hear your thoughts.
I still have Vista on one of my machines...I can install the bookskin program and create it also.
OK -- I think I have something a little more workable. I chose to go red and shiny....who doesn't like red and shiny?

buggars......but we still luv you anyway ausvet!!
thats looking awsome kaz......i luv that wall of po's its soo unique and totally wikked!!
i need a valentine before i can do a thing lol
Okay folks still need a volunteer for RightClick and how about a Rainlendar, Xion or, dare I say, a DX clock widget skin?
I have no problem if you would like to include it. If I remember correctly it's a free program. I just check it out I used to use that program, wonder why I stopped?
I would like to include it -- maybe I could drum up some support that way. It IS a free program, and it's skinned much like Rainlendar. Maybe people stopped using it because DesktopX came out or something, but I've never been able to wrap my head around creating things with DX.
Here is another clock I have used for some time and it works great. Also Free. The skin is looking great Karen.
An idea can change your wife.
I never tried it however on that page it says
"Customizable! Change the background picture to anything you like!" so That is all I can add now. Will look at it at work tomorrow when i return.
Karen there is a folder in the program files for it that is labeled Pics and has all the different background that you can change it to . So i would say yes. I like it because you can make the clock 4 different sizes with the click of the mouse in it's settings. The pics are bmp
id like to do a rainlender, but ive already got 2 things to do, dont wanna take over the whole suite lolz
I've PM'd a couple of skinners looking for volunteers for RightClick and Rainlendar, if I don't hear anything or they don't post here I'll let you Vampothika.
that sounds good, id like to see more other skinners involved............
An idea for a Rightclick skin if interested.
I would love to see WebGizmos or Mirsguy do the Object Docks....
well tho i cant create anything for the theme i am gonna vote for whichever is RED and SHINY lol
