No doubt you have talent. But you have chosen wrong way to express it. Due to abendence of Mac type themes, people have lost interest in them. In example this skin is really nice infact. But you got very low rating on it.

Try something New. We really wish to have a New Master Skinner for Wc.

I have to disagree. Mac imulation is not losing interest. That is why AeroSoft and AquaSoft are doing so well.
Although it needs some touching up in some areas. The main thing is that you're skinning. I'm working on MY version of a Mac theme, should I not waste my time uploading it to share?

Z71 Please do upload and share.

I have yet to use this theme but, it appears to be pretty nice. However the color just isn't for me.....

What's up with those square corners on the left side titlebar button? They detract from an otherwise decent looking skin.

Well, it's NOT for me either, but that has a LOT to do with the fact that had I wanted an apple on my computer I would have bought a Mac. I'm really not into very many of the Mac influenced skins what so ever. In the end they all have the same features...so I'm totally bored with them.

All the buttons are the same as the others available, and frankly Xero- has pretty cornerd the market on these....It's really hard to compete with his...and then there's an abundance of others available....

I agree about the left button...total mistake. Several of the font color choices are hard to read. And the skin's over all tone is flat (I mean color wise), but then there's a bunch of little "aqua" type buttons...sort of doesn't match eachother...but then there's a bunch of "flat" buttons (not aqua)....so it's like....Is it finished? or Did you forget to skin some of the buttons? And looking at the start panel, where the admin tools is highlighted....would have looked better if that blue was the same as the rest...the color is off and would have been even better if you used the pinstriped blue there too..

On a more positive note...it's nice for a first try and the blue pinstripes have potential. Perhaps theough not blue, though...ever think of trying a deep maroon?

Z71- your skins are amazing, so I must say I'm VERY interested in seeing your take on a Mac thing, but hope you are going to turn it into a Windows thing with Mac influence...I think that makes a LOT difference with these type of skins....at least for me.

And I am soory, if you think I am being ugly...I'm really NOT trying to..I'm just giving you my honest opinion....but that's the key....it's MY opinion....Good Luck.

TNBrat hasn't done anything wrong here. She gave a solid and sound review of what SHE experienced when using the skin. If people can only handle cuddling then I suggest you head home to your mom.

Not a bad skin. Not quite finished yet either. Stick with it. The more you work with it the better it will be.

It's good to see people want to use the Macintosh GUI, but please look at more than just SCEENSHOTS when attempting to recreate it.

What you guys are forgetting here is that this is my first skin. I thank you guys for letting me know whats wrong, but criticizing like Kid Pickles does me no good. Whereas TN Brat actuallly showed me whats wrong (thank you). What I dont appreciate is comments that dont tell me anything. If you are commenting, please post something helpful.

Great idea thethimble. I wish you could make the window bar look more 3D-like, that would be awesome.

Thanks Craig!

thethimble, I do apologise if I sounded harsh. I did note that it was your first attempt, and I do think that sometimes people forget....And to be very honest... I should have given you a LOT more credit for that than I did! I, myself, have never finished a WB...though have started many...lol

The top left button is much better! And I can honestly say that I look forward to see more from you.

zigglefrop -well I have not a spare min...I am more behind on skinning than ever,with well over 50 skins I've already commited to, but I feel that others take time to comment and help on my skins so I should do the same. Perhaps you should take a little more time to tell thethimble what you think is great about this skin, so that he can continue to impliment the great things. Now THAT would be helpful.

Good start for for your first skin.

I did find some problems - the left titlebar button issue shows up when a window is rolled up (fixed in normal window state), mouseover on titlebar buttons activates all three graphics (instead of individually), expand/compress graphic for systray shows as blank, and the left edge of a window frame extends up into the titlebar (in contrast to the right edge window frame).

It's a usable skin with potential.
