To the skin makers


Tuesday, March 2, 2010 by OldMsgt | Discussion: Skinning

There is one or two other items I would like to see in a Vista/W7 skin. Up where the minimize restore and close buttons button. If possible could you add a transparency tab, I do not if this could be done for W7, I know that the following skin Captain America has this feature. Please take a look to see what I am trying to explain.

Also would it be possible to put colorful frame around the menu items on the menu bar of IE 8 also the depressed and mouse over of these items. These I know can be skinned in IE 8 as one or teo of the great skinners here have done it.

Also a Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Army and Coast Guard skin would really show the folks that have served and are serving that the skinners of the world care.

I'm wondering if the transparency button is the same as the rollup button found on some skins. It's a handy feature, but if you don't have it, you can go into Settings in WindowBlinds, and select Rollup/Down Window in "Action to take when double clicking (or right clicking) on the title bar". All the window disappears except for the title bar.

I think your request for an armed services skin is very nice and hopefully someone may do one and I can understand why a service person would like to have one. Going back through the forums there have been service related things that have come up. I can't ever remember anything but nice things said with what ever situation it was and thanking people for serving and helping those who can't. I don't think however a skin has to be made so the skinners can show the world we care, because we care and thank all the branches and people who serve, with or without a skin for a computer. That's like saying if you don't fly a flag at your house form sun rise to sun set you don't love the United States and that just isn't true.

I completely agree with you David.  Maybe they could do a Community Project for an armed services skin.
