Helping WC Community Members

Tuesday, July 14, 2009 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

Over the last couple of weeks we have had some negative drama on WinCustomize.  The weather widget alone has caused a ton of frustration alone, so I wanted to do something to bring some positive vibes to WC, and to show that we are a community.

Since the economy is in a bad situation, I know we have many members on WC who have been hit with very hard times.  Trying to help someone who has lost a job for instance can be difficult, but I do know things like hobbies and friends can make a difference in attitude, which is a big step in moving again in the right direction.

I wanted to put an offer out there for people that might want to help other members with a WC subscription or even software gifts.  There are people here who would like to contribute to the community, and we would like to give a helping hand in getting them started if they can’t do it on their own.

I’m going to start the ball rolling by offering 2 WinCustomize subscriptions for two people who are not current subscribers.  Just tell us in 50 words or less why you would like to have a WC subscription, and what the community means to you.  You need not give any personal details about your situation if you wish, I would just like to hear how skinning and the community might help you in general.

If there are any other community members that would like to help, I would recommend gifting applications to someone which is easily done in Impulse.  Perhaps an upcoming skinner that needs a full version of WindowBlinds for instance, instead of relying on the trial or friends to test, for instance.  If you would like to do that, you can PM me with details.

Great idea. We all know of members who have experienced financial, emotional etc problems recently. How's about members nominating these members for one of the subscriptions. Something like I nominate member XXXXXX because...

Hi ID,

No any problems. I have at least two redundant subscription (I even can't remember the reason, but I bought subscription until 2012)...

Please, take these subscriptions and send to people who will use them at the present. (If it's possible of course).

Wonderful idea!!! 

 

I have, in a box, a brand new Logitech trackball mouse.  It says for Windows95, but I think it could also be used for other Windows, I hope.  Anyway, I stopped using this kind ( I have one I used to use) because my thumb did not like it. If someone could use it please email me an address for mailing.   I realize it is not a subscription, nor software, but a little free *hardware*, it is what I can do right now.

You can double that, ID.

I'll put in for two as well.

Curiously another member suggested something quite similar via PM just yesterday.....freaky...

Alright 50 words or less....So ive been a member here since 2004 and in that time I have made some really good friends, a few bad ones, learned how to make icons, then Icon packs and finally wallpapers. None of which would have come about if it werent for this website and/or the help, guidance and support of it's many members. My subscription ran out about a year ago, and then the ads started. I eventually got used to those but somehow I began to feel as if I wasnt contributing to the site the way I should be which in turn led me to not contributing to the site the way I could, I have felt very disconnected lately and I dont like it. Whether or not I am eligible to recieve a WC subscription makes no matter, I feel better just talking about it! good karma for you ID, Jafo, TBC, Butch, VAD and 2 of 3 for paying it forward! Skinny

Yes! Very good idea I.D. !!! I happen to have an extra ODNT Ultimate subscription you can give to someone if you like. Mine is good till 2012, take a year and give it to someone, can that be done?
