I also tried to give you some constructive advice, it seems you didn't heed any of it. I would have appreciated it also had you named the skin something different.

People are going to continue to un-appreciative of your works until you listen to their critique and try to impelment it.

This skin needs a huge amount of attention.

Usually I leave nice comments, but with this one all you have done is replaced images. And you haven't even done a good job with that. Maybe it's time to step back and look at a different area of skinning.

I can read all of the text in the screenshot,Maybe it is the size of monitor you have.Anyways,the blind always looks better than the screenshot.Remember you have to convert the screenshot to jpg to submit it.They won't accept any other format here and I have tried to make the quality better but I can't seem to do it. I use Corel Photoshop Pro X1 and am just learning how to use the program,so please be patient and I am sure I will make one you like sooner or later.I do seem to be getting the hang of it mostly

jedi, dude....

i totally respect that you are having a go at making blinds, but surley you must see that they need work.
There's text in the screen shot you cant even read, and its basically "too busy".

Ive seen comments before about you should take your time, so why not step back, take a look, and smooth things out before posting a finished product.

(and you really should rename, just out of respect).... "my stargate" or "Startgate SG2" or "SG1"

I think it looks good...Not to crazy about the wall tho.

If ugliness could be summed up as a windowblinds style, than this would be the perfect embodiment. Horrible graphics. Yuck

Oh also you don't have to worry if you have vStyler's Stargate SG1 blind as mine will not overwrite his as mine installs into the folder Stargate and his installs into the folder Stargate SG1

What I would like to know is what ever happened to the quality checks here at WC before an item is allowed on the site? Honestly, the last several WB's I have seen here at the site are totally unusable and need a lot of improvement, and the author should have been told "Thanks, but it needs work, try again." or something. Quality checks should be number one here at WC.

Your blinds have the look and feel of just being 'slapped together'. I know that sounds sarcastic, and I apologize for it. You ARE making an attempt and have gotten further than I have, but just because you think you have covered everything and got all the graphics in the right place doesn't necessarily mean you're done.

Some time spent testing your skins, using them...for a good period...or even using the forums to ask for testers, might assist you a great deal in working out the bugs 'before; you upload it.

I would recommend going to Skinartistry and checking out there workshop. You can upload unfinished skins for critique and the folks there are extremely helpful. I don't think you're a terrible skinner. I think you have a good grasp on the basics. It's the 'details' and little things that need polish. Don't be too stubborn or proud to ask for assistance with 'polishing' your new skills/talents. That's whats great about the skinning community. There are some great people willing to share there secrets, skills, and knowledge with anyone who asks.

Hmmmmm - Quite a following of negative thought going with this skin.Bad sign!
Comment #32 Thursday, July 26, 2007 4:28 PM
Don't worry about the name,as I respect how vStyler feels I have added an a to the end since he requested it himself.

That's a very good view point for a beginner. This isn't about, "I'm better that you are!". It's about learning and having fun. And don't worry if it's not finished. If you want to get picky, since WB 5.5 came out, 1/4 of my WB skins aren't finished. That's why we have updates.

Another very good point is that it's free. People comment like they paid for it and they want you to make it like "they" want it. Now, if it was a paid skin, we would talk...
Take the advice, that you feel is helpful, from fellow skinners and look for tutorials, here at Wincustomize.
As for the name, might help to do a search next time. "Some" can get a little freaked out about this.
Don't get distracted and never give up. Always have fun. When it turns into work, walk away...!

Fighting for name should have been kept strictly behind close doors due to the fact that the “title” is copyrighted, better yet, there should not have been any arguments as it’s been by many members here. Stop being firestarters and let players affected by the issue solve the matter quietly.

Most of you improperly criticized the skinner. I would make joke from time to time, but I would never directly hurt someone and enjoy it. I have criticized the greatest of the very best such as The Great Mike Bryant, Tretog known as the Slayer just for my own pleasure and entertainment from time to time. These guys already reached the limit of infinity. I even go one on one with the top aka Long Strokes Frogboy and Jafo to name a few and never threw the white towel, but I would never improperly and directly take on a skinner trying to make it. I’d throw the white towel. It’s just not right.

This is that the first time this happen to the people’s skinner. He once created a masterpiece called “Omega” and later Stardock hit us with a premium masterpiece with the same name. It’s all good. No harm!

We have one the best in the game and the future of the game working on some issue. Don’t make it your personal issue with negative comments. Soon they might be on the same team throwing masterpieces on me. What would you say then players.

The name subject should have been over 5 days ago since I already changed it to sg-1 a
Comment #38 Sunday, July 29, 2007 11:04 PM
Look no offense to you Jeditharcus or to you vStyler but the Stargate SG1 name is a trademark of MGM-UA Worldwide Television, Gekko Film Corp, Glassner/Wright Double Secret Productions and Stargate SG-I Prod. Ltd. Partnership. The name game shouldnt even be a issue since the name is a infringement on their trademark of the name. So in all honesty if neither of you got permission from SciFi then both should be renamed.

Here is the official quote from the site...

The Stargate, SG-I, the Goa’uld and all other characters who have appeared in the series STARGATE SG-1 together with the names, titles and backstory are the sole copyright property of MGM-UA Worldwide Television, Gekko Film Corp, Glassner/Wright Double Secret Productions and Stargate SG-I Prod. Ltd. Partnership.

So in all honesty the name should not appear on any skin. But that is just my opinion. Oops didnt see that someone already posted this.

But anyways Jedi you are making a attempt at making skins which is good. But overall from what i have seen of your work you are either going to fast or just making them to simple. I cant complain cause the few skins i have tried i didnt even release cause they were BAD. I cant even begin to say how bad. But like you i am working on getting better before i release them. Maybe a better idea would be to go to the forums and post them there and see what people think and get the skins fine tuned before you release them.

Comments, when given constructively, can help someone tremendously. Also, I agree that those of you who have nothing positive to say should try it, then submit what you've done for us to peruse. I wonder, then, what the responses would be. As far as the name is concerned, for goodness sake, there are so many more important things to be concerned about than a skin having the same name. At Desktop Sidebar, that is more the rule, than the exception because no one has the same interpretation of a particular skin. That is what makes skinning so interesting and so much fun. Let him be.
