Sub-Styles & Responding To Rejections

Tuesday, January 27, 2009 by Lumic | Discussion: Help

I was wondering how I can upload sub-styles of a DX theme. For now, my DX themes will contain 4 sub-styles: full (with taskbar) or widget (no taskbar), dock (mini-OD app that is neater than drag & drop) or drag & drop (easier to use). I don't want to upload them all in one theme, as the size would be 8MB+ and people will be downloading unnecessary MB's. When I tried to upload them separately, I got rejected ("identical upload").

Touching on that topic, can you respond to the "Upload Notification" messages? Not the automated one - the Mod. mail that specifies the problem with the upload.

I guess just upload them as separate Widgets/parts, and have a link from your uploaded Theme, to the rest of the styles.

I've replied to notifications before hehehe, not always positively.. hehe but I'm over that.

I do not know how DX things work, but it seems to me, that you could put them all into one zip file and upload it that way. Put a note in the comments that there are a few themes in the file.

A mod would be able to answer better, you could PM the one you got the notice from and ask if that would be alright.

Tailsgirl - I am saying they got rejected (though as themes) as duplicate submissions. I'm 14, so I don't even have DX Pro (I can't make widgets...LOL).

Xiandi, you point out what I said I don't want to do. Make the download less inviting by a larger size & make the downloader get all sub-styles (when they are not needed).

Though Tailsgirl I haven't had a  reply from Zubaz for a week now.

Hiya Ryan! Don't worry about filesize...

Just made "all in one" zip....would be nice, if others would do so.

If anyone need your nice work, then down them all..

I agree with Bilbo, as there are much larger files than that, like the Dreams hehe, upload it all together hon
