Hello Ladies and Gentlemen
It has been awhile since the last Community Skinning Project.
To start off, all community skinners are eligible and encouraged to submit a WindowBlinds entry for a contest. Yes you read that correctly, a contest with the winner's WindowBlinds being used as the theme for the community project as the prize.
A few rules, only one entry per skinner and it must meet the established guidelines for uploading of a WindowBlinds. Since this is for a Community Project and we know the community still uses XP, Vista and now Windows 7 you know what we are looking for. The entries on a minimum will be skinned for Windows 7.
Volunteers are needed to judge the entries. One simple rule, if you volunteer to judge you can not submit a WB. You can however sign up to make themed skins. We need a minimum of five but no more than ten judges. I'm expecting a lot of entries.
When does the contest end, Friday the 18th of March. All entries for the contest will be uploaded to the WinCustomize WindowBlinds Gallery Library no earlier then Monday, 14 March (you really don't want to show your entry to the other skinners early now do you?) and no later than Friday, 18 March. All entries should include 'For Community Skinning Project' in it's description. Winner will be selected on Friday, 25 March.
Once a winning theme is selected community skinners will be able to sign up for skins they wish to make and get the graphics and start skinning.
What can you make a themed skin for you ask, if it has a WinCustomize Library you can make a skin for it.
Can there be multiple skins as in two or three Wallpapers or Logons, yes, but only one per skinner.
Can a skinner sign up to do several different skins, yes.
Only one rule for themed skins, they will use the theme graphics. The only exceptions will be for Screensavers, Dreams and Wallpapers. These will though have a tie in to the theme of the project.
Please leave a reply to this thread if you will be submitting an entry in the contest.
