WinCustomize, deviantART to merge

New "Deviant" era of customization about to begin

Sunday, April 01, 2007 by Frogboy | Discussion: WinCustomize News

Stardock is pleased to announce that WinCustomize and deviantART are in the process of merging.

Both domain names will continue to function, but the combined site will take on the best of both sites.  deviantPrints will be able to be sold and acquired through Stardock Central and Master skins and other artwork will be able to be easily placed online for sale.

The overall site design will come to resemble the deviantART green look and the community forums of both will be merged into a single forum.

The merged site name will be determined based on a user-contest with the final name chosen by a user vote.

April fools.

I saw the tittle and knew exactly what was going on, only since i posted a suicide letter on my blog with a link to "Have a good April Fools" at the bottom. Dashes, not everyone can get fooled!

WinDevizeArt FTW!!!

Me too, if it wasn't for a notice on another IRC server I'm on (and the fact that I needed to read down a bit) I wouldn't have caught that either. D'oh!

I had a thought & I have no wish to suffer alone, so ......

When one customisation site tries to take over another - is it a hostile makeover bid ?

Whew!! That was good. Almost had to go put half a bottle of amaretto into my coffee this morning to cope with that. What a way to start my day
