By the way, this is my 89th WindowBlind, so I thought I would do something I have never done before...... a minimalist blind. No doubt number 90 will be totally over the top. I'll go start on it now......

Josephs ...while I see a similarity in toolbar icons,  thats about all I do see ... the colors are entirely different shades, and there's hardly a similarity at all...

I'll say it's entirely possible BoXXi was somewhat inspired by this [if at all] ....but that would be as much as I'd call it.

BoXXi has no need to take other peoples work, he's a talented and accomplished skinner in his own right.

Yes, this was TOTALLY inspired by A-Groove. I got the MSstyle, but they always have pieces missing, (like the shutdown images etc.) so I decided to make my own version, because I liked the colors so much. Obviously, I made all my own graphics, and I think you'll find the colors and bevels are slightly different.

Nothing to hide here, Just made my own version of an MSstyle, and sharing it with others.

Have Fun!!

Why would he need permission if he made all the graphics himself? That's not ripping....inspiration maybe, but it's not a rip. It's really close...I admit, but the graphic work was his own. Giving credit in the skin description would be appropriate though.

Thanks a lot.

Heylove: If you read comment #6 again, it will explain why there is no need to take this down. I was INSPIRED by your skin, I haven't taken it and uploaded it as my own, I would never do that. I tried to make it close, obviously, because I liked it so much, but it is my own work. If you compare the artwork in photoshop and zoom right in, you will see that I haven't used your images at all.
If you look at my previous work you will see that I have no real reason to use other peoples graphics as I love to create stuff in photoshop. I just really liked your MSstyle and wanted a full WB version as many parts are not skinned by MSstyle as you know.
I hope you take this in the spirit it is intended. I will credit your skin as my inspiration in the author comments, as I guess that was remiss of me.

If you still feel aggrieved, please contact one of the moderators here, they will compare the graphics, and if they feel that I am out of line I will abide by their decision and take it down.

I can't say fairer than that.
Best regards....... Bryan.

to say that boxxi has ripped someone elses work is not only incorrect it is downright insulting, like others have said the tool bar icons may be similar but they are not the same, and just because the colors are similar means nothing. boxxi has no need to rip other peoples work and to be honest this blind far outranks the one being claimed to be ripped. good work mate and it is not even close to being a rip. by the way for someone from deviantart to come in here claiming a rip is a little bit ironic dont you think?

While it's not my style of skin, it is definitely not a "rip".

People need to understand what a rip is.  A rip is when you take someone else's artwork and call it your own.

Someone having a neat idea for a skin does not give them a monopoly on the skin design. If it did, a large # of skins would have to be pulled down.

After all, if we didn't allow things that were inspired by someone else's work, there'd be no Msstyles at all since uxtheme was "inspired" by WindowBlinds in the first place.

Love it! Also love that you added a roll up button, not many do and I miss it. It is much easier to see the page underneath, without minimizing the top page and getting that *lost* in the task bar, ( which only happens with Windows7, never had that happen in XP). 

Thank you Boxxi!!!
