You have to wait for the new skinstudio that is coming out like right away.It supports Vista and XP (no win classic anymore I think YAY!)so there will be alot more Vista blinds after that.By the way this is the wrong section to really get that comment to the right people.you should check out the WB forums as I am not affiliated with the staff.I am just a common person like you who likes windowblinds.

Thats about 42 hours on each if not more.

That doesn't mean you're done with it. I have yet to post one and I have spent months on some.

when there is a new guy on the block like me who is learning and not a professional he doesn't get all the harassment from others who really don't have any right to judge anyone else since they don't know what they are doing either


There aren't as many 'professionals' as there are experienced skinners. And like it or not, for fun or not...as all like myself who post here...the comments sections are what they are and people will comment. Overall, most who have commented want to help you. There are 'better' skins that don't get as much feedback as you do. What will it take for you to see that you have a community with a wealth of knowledge right at your fingertips that wants to help?

I bet there are alot of skinners that have basically given up because of all of the opinions being thrown at them.These people probably were on a trial and were thinking of buying a subscription but decided not to when the s**t started hitting the fan.


Actually, a lot of 'great' skinners took there share of abuse and left. Again, most of the people here want to help. There are a few 'trolls' around here who leave some pretty crude and unhelpful comments which I haven't seen comment on your stuff, yet. Those that leave, more than likely leave the site, not Skinstudio (it's too addicting), so SD isn't losing money on the software.



Also it is kind of hard to remember everything everyone has said and I am not about to read everything everyone has said every time I start doing it.I would be reading all day and not getting any skinning done.


I think you're making the point for the people offering advice. Slow down. 'Read' some stuff. Post some WIP's. Check out the workshop at Skinartistry. They have some detailed 'EASY' to follow tutorials and some very HELPFUL skinners who would enjoy assisting you. You keep saying you do it for 'fun'. I can guarantee it will be more fun if you take some of the advice you get here, slow down, and test your skins, preview them, actually use them for a week or the same amount of time it takes you to make them. Even the so-called 'professionals' skinners will ask for testers before they upload them. Go to the forums and search 'testers'. Vstyler, RomanDA, pictoratus, Mountain Dragon, Koasati and others, (even me, a non-professional) , all have asked for testers. They do it for fun, too. Yet, even with all their experience, they still want to be sure it's right.

Tom, you obviously have no artist skill nor taste, and the fact that you're almost 40 and have nothing to do is a little worrying, if you want to spend time making naff skins keep them to your self till you actually make something worth publishing, it’ll save people the hassle of complaining at how bad you are at making skins and any form of art for that matter and it’ll save you the frustration of writing stupid essay replies; no one cares about what you have to say. Jeesh no wonder your wife left you.

If you must know actually I was very seriously injured while working in a piledriving accident on july 7 2003 and have lost the use of my right leg .I am now on disability and as this is extremely boring since I now don't have any job to go to anymore I am using this to fill up alot of my free time. I really don't care what you think about anything else you say since the only time I hear from you is always right after Jerk mcGurk. If it is such a hassle complaining then don't do it! Also I left her not the other way around!!! Check your sources before you spout off b.s. or is jerk your boyfriend and you feel you have to back his play? As I know that jerk's comments aren't of any use and he is just doing it to brag to his worthless friends about how cool he is you will notice that I do not respond to anything he says.I sure won't respond to YOU his boyfriend after this comment either.Or maybe you are him signing in with an alias either way you really are quite a pathetic pair.

Have a wonderful day and enjoy your pathetic life where you have nothing better to do but harass people who are better than you on their worst day. Bye now loser

Sorry to hear about your accident. Did the piledriver see one of your windowblinds 'skins' and thought it should try and put you out of your talentless misery?

PirateEskimo, I hope you aren't referring to me there as I have only one login and it is jeditharcus.As for the moron up above a00783,I have said that I would not respond to anything he says and now he doesn't know what to do and is trying really lameass things to get anybody just to acknowledge him so I suggest ignoring this moron and sooner or later he will just fade away.

Woohoooo windowblinds supports vista. And now months later, stardock still hasn't spit out any vista only skins. I didn't pay $20 just to have it collecting dust. Where is the vista wb section only. I'm really disappointed in Stardock and Wincustomise not being there for the vista people!

Very angry customer



Korper, stardock isn't necessarily responsible for creating vista only skins.
Stardock sells you windowblinds software to give your pc the ability to apply different gui skins/themes. The skins/themes are created by users much like yourself/myself and the rest of the wc/skinning community. Alot of the wb5 skins currently available on this site look pretty decent on vista so I'm not sure what the complaint is about. Plus there are master skins that you can purchase (let me guess... you groan at the thought of making an additional purchase on this site) if the free user submitted skins aren't quite up to your high standards. You could also get involved and learn how to create a wb skin and skin your own machine - personally that's how I got involved in working with wb's - once I discovered that I could create my own wb skins as well as using other skins on this site, I started creating skins for my own use, once I figured they were half decent enough that other people might like them, I started uploading to this site.

Jedi, you skins are a little rought and do need more work but I'm very glad that you are persistent (stubborn) enough to continue working on them and uploading them to the site. You will get better with practice, some people take longer than others to get better at skinning but you can't get better without trying and that's one thing you're doing and should be given credit for. I would focus on spending more time when working on your skins and run them on your machine for a few weeks to see if it's a skin you can use for an extended period of time without being bothered by contrasting or bright colors, rough edges, etc. - doing this also helps iron out bugs that may have missed during the initial skin creation process. Plus you've nearly achieved 1000 downloads for this particular skin so a few people wanted to try it out after viewing the preview so there is something positive to make note of.

Keep on skinning.

another day, another crappy skin. y do u make these, jackmcgurk.NET has wayyyyyyyyy better 1's than u, and u know it. nerd.


a00783 I'm just surprised they still let stay on this site after reading alot of the garbage comments you leave on people's submissions. It's one thing to comment on a skin but it's another to make hurtful comments against someone personally. That's alot of negativity to pump out on a regular basis - is someone crapping on you on a daily basis which makes you lash out at everyone else?

it’ll save people the hassle of complaining at how bad you are at making skins and any form of art for that matter


PirateEskimo, if you don't like his skins and find it a hassle to complain about them, why are you commenting on them? Safe yourself some effort and walk away - the skin author's name is listed next to the skin title, if you see Jedi's name on a skin don't even bother checking it out if you feel it's such a hassle and requires so much effort.

The skin comment section is reserved for comments about the skin, not for personal attacks against the skin author, it would benefit everyone if you limited your skin comments to the skin itself. I'm assuming we're all capable of mature behavior on & offline - I'm sure most people including yourself would prefer a site that welcomes users & their submissions.
