...................Are you kidding me? It looks like you worked on it for about 2 min.
Comment #3 Sunday, December 21, 2003 5:14 PM
Nice skin. I use this wallpaper and the PixOS skin. They blend real nice as well.
Comment #4 Sunday, December 21, 2003 5:31 PM
Nice color. Goes with the wallpaper well.

R3dRabbIT, as you are fairly new to this site (#747420), You probably don't have any idea of the time it takes to create these skins. They are very labor intensive and take a lot of work and dedication to produce. Melanie (MGiff) has produced quite a few skins and doesn't throw them together. If you don't like it, that's your choice. But your comments only show your lack of knowledge and courtesy.

Oh, pictoratus, if there weren't negative comments I would wonder what I was doing wrong
Comment #6 Sunday, December 21, 2003 5:39 PM
By the way, thank you, that means a lot.
Comment #7 Sunday, December 21, 2003 5:56 PM
Very nice color tones, but I'd love to see this skin updated/completed in the future.

Great work.

This is without a doubt a very refreshing change from all the dark/metallic/aqua stuff I keep seeing. I love the start button and the ragged edge on the start menu I also think the font you used in the title bar is great and colors are too.

The only things I noticed that you might want to take a look at is the edges of the title on the inactive window have tiny light blue triangles and because I use an expanded taskbar (double normal size), the medium blue color around the start button is a rectangle that looks out of place. On a normal taskbar it looks fine

Looking forward to seeing updates on this skin. I really like it and plan to use it

Cool. By the way, thanx again for "blacklight". Keep up the good work.
Comment #10 Sunday, December 21, 2003 6:13 PM
I think that just because a skin is not "revolutionary" does not mean that a lot of work was put into it. Keep 'em comin' MGiff!
Comment #11 Sunday, December 21, 2003 6:22 PM
It's great!! I really like your work and use your skins alot!
Comment #12 Sunday, December 21, 2003 6:32 PM
Thanks everyone for your nice comments. Essencay, I tried and tried to fix that inactive taskbar thing, it won't accept the "magic pink" and I can't delete it. If anyone can tell me how to fix it, please do.
Comment #13 Sunday, December 21, 2003 7:05 PM
There is probably an easier way to fix it, since I'm no skinner but I opened your skin in SkinStudio to get the RGB values for the "Magic Pink" from one of the elements that is using it correctly. Then I opened your BabyBlueTopBorder.TextBackTextBack.bmp in (of all things) Microsoft Paint. Made a custom color "Magic Pink" then applied it to the areas I thought shouldn't be there and it fixed it
Comment #14 Sunday, December 21, 2003 7:33 PM
Thank you, aren't you sweet?! I decided to change it though, to match the buttons. I probably should have had it like that before. I will surely try your technique in the future though! It may come in handy.
Comment #15 Sunday, December 21, 2003 7:37 PM
I believe I got the bugs out now. Changed the textback and the start button. I also (since I always forget) put in the vertical taskbar and such. Hope it's OK now.
Comment #16 Sunday, December 21, 2003 7:59 PM I said, I'm no skinner. Don't try what I said. It looked fine in SkinStudio, but it gave me little pink triangles when I actually tried applied the skin to my desktop I'm guessing I probably got the RGB values wrong or something

Just installed your updated skin That is the best start button I have ever seen Now I'll have to go icon, cursor and wallpaper hunting
Comment #17 Sunday, December 21, 2003 8:14 PM
OK, deleted from my memory. Thank you very, very much. (I'm taking a bow)
Comment #18 Sunday, December 21, 2003 10:50 PM
Hi Great job on this! There are a couple of things I noticed though 1. You're using your shutdown dialog buttons for your logoff buttons; there's 6 states for logoff and I think 10 for the shutdown So the same image won't work for both. The logoff buttons show up cut in half. 2 instead of using a little magic pink square for the shutdown\logoff dialog flag try making a 1x1 px image that's the same color as the top row on the background. The magic pink square shows on the "please wait" screen. I really like this one, very well done!
Comment #19 Monday, December 22, 2003 3:57 AM
THANK YOU KNATZZ!! I wanted to know how to fix the please wait thing! Also I never use the logoff so I didn't know. I fix that right now!
