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.

Did the piledriver see one of your windowblinds 'skins' and thought it should try and put you out of your talentless misery?


wow! - that's just rude - do you make it a rule to make jokes of people's misfortunes?

see! Look at this one. Though not a complete skin, by looking at it I can see you have potential. I would definitely focus on making a very simple skin with simple shapes.Maybe even black all the way throughout. No colors. Don't even think about whether or not you are going to upload it or not. Also what i do Is I look at other skins to see how people shade there images and then I work off that. It really helps. I am a begginer so you cant take what i say too seriously but I just want to help. And I don't like to see someone give up because of rude idiots that don't even try AT ALL!! to make ANYTHING!! This is a cruel world today but no matter where you go you are going to have people that are going to try to make you feel like crap. And I would definitely listen to the PO and Masters because even though sometimes they come off like they know everything about skinning...... They DOO. That is why they are po's and masters. And when I said that I am not implying that you are not listening to them. DO NOT GIVE UP!

I am just having fun with it as I have stated before I am learning and all of the skins are quite usable and actually I do each one in about a week(except for the transformers one)and spend about 7 hours a day on them as I have nothing else to do.Thats about 42 hours on each if not more.Also as I have stated before I am not getting paid for any of the stuff I do so let me have fun with it and do what I want.I will get better with time.Also as I am not a graphic artist like many of the professionals are here why am I always being judged like I am.Maybe there should be levels of quality for the submitters like a beginner section an intermediate section and a professional section so that 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.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.This means less money for skinstudio and that means less people to work for skinstudio as well which means longer times to wait for upgrades to programs and also maybe the company not having enough money to keep going and then there would be nowhere for anyone to do this at all,just because of a few bad apples in an otherwise good barrel. BTW I have been taking the good advice mostly but there are so many different opinions who am I supposed to listen to? 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 if there is something that has to give it is the overly judgemental opinions of some of the people who submit comments so that when someone new to the scene starts reading the things said by SOME people they don't get scared away from downloading a trial or buying a subscription.Let beginners like me have fun with it and learn by doing and not by being judged with a waaaaaay too critical eye. This blind is an improvement compared to some of my earlier work isn't it? P.S. this isn't being said to Ooberman because of what he said ,but is being said to everyone out there who has just judged and not seen the good points there are too.

Another day, another Jeditharcus skin. Take the good advice people keep giving you: take your time, pay attention to detail. Use the skin for a while and ask yourself: would anybody want to use this skin in this state?

You don't see the likes of vstyler pumping out skins every 48 hours do you?

Sorry, I don't want to sound bitchy and all, but somethings gotta give.

Comment #36 Saturday, July 28, 2007 2:28 PM
Thanks for the advice on the uis2 format, I will use that from now on. I seem to be having trouble with skinstudio as it keeps changing the files that I do by merging them with other files I.E. the top window for some reason has the bottom part of the window on the same file(pic) and it keeps adding the pink outline even though I have tried like 6 times to recolor it I even erased the side and replaced the pink completely and it still showed.Also I have fixed the margins about three times but when I go to save it they go back to where they were.I think this might be because of the UIS1 as this never happened with the other skins I did(think I was using uis2 with them)I am going to switch this to uis2 and see if there are still the same problems then.

On your next skin try using the UIS2 format. UIS1 is very limited as to what can be done and IMO these days is an outdated format.

The transparency you tried on titlebar does not work IMO, since it now has no text so can tell for it what each window is, combined with the very hard to read text on taskbar buttons, it is hard to select window you want.

As already stated get rid of the default and recolored default images, you have done enough skins now that all images should be skinned/replaced.

I thought visitors weren't allowed to vote and only subscribers and apprentices could,even though I think that everyone should be allowed to vote.


Sorry should have clarified that. It's the people that are allowed to vote and take the time to download it that can up or down the rating.

It's actually apprentices and above that have voting privileges.

Comment #39 Saturday, July 28, 2007 12:42 PM
It is up to the visitors to either increase or decrease the rating based on how much they like or dislike the skin.

I have seen your skins and watched the comments. I give credit where it is due in that you are trying to improve on your skills with WindowBlinds. However, this skin much like the others has a long way to go.

My suggestion would be to put a lot more time and some self pride into your next skin before submitting it. If something is not working out for you then make a post in the forum and ask some questions. You can even do a WIP (Work in progress) post where you can show the progress of your skin and ask questions plus get advice as you work through to a finished product. People in the community will be much more likely to help out in this manner and the help will be overall more thorough.

All new skinners start somewhere and I myself had to ask questions, read tutorials, make forum post and so on.
