There are some issues that I see with the skin. The first things that look a little off are the locations of the titlebar buttons and of the system icon in the titlebar. Both seem to be too close to the outer edge of the titlebar and as a result, hinder the look of the titlebar. I also think that the extraimages graphic in the lower right hand corner of the window frame needs some work.

Overall, the skin looks a little rough - as if it were rushed. More time spent on the details would have greatly improved it.

I also feel that this was rushed. That's easy to do, and I can understand that.
What I don't understand is the Aero part. I really don't see anything Aero about it.
I've just spent the past 15-20 mins looking at Aero screenshots and have found nothing even similar to this.
Poor form, using the Aero name to gain popularity in my opinion.

Good first attempt. Why did you make the title bar so big? Why not keep it the same size as Winamp?

INSPIRED = PORT ?? NO.

Thanks for your comment... now go bash someone else... Journeyman... LOL

Took me a week to do this WB... I guess it was rushed.

Oh btw, i really dont expect to win any popularity contest or to have the most downloaded WB on this wonderful site, i simply made a WB...

The start menu and titlebar/min/max buttons were inspired by Winamp AND

The taskbar buttons and other buttons were inspired by Aero, Phoon....

Nobody is bashing you, I simply stated that I do not see ANYTHING Aero about this.
Just using a couple of Inspired buttons does not constitute a name which by default initiates poplularity, thus more downloads. Especially while there is a contest going on based on downloads.

Took a whole week.. Thats a rush for most people to do a windowblind.

PS - I've seen your other works, and you are more than capable of doing better on this.

I dont want to win ANY contest... you keep spouting about the name of this WB.

Phoon you can have any and all proceeds this WB yields as a result of being downloaded, I do not wish to participate in any contest. Now... move on... please.

This skin was listed with a 7 rating... I wonder why it dropped so sharply? Maybe its because someone who is a Journeyman has a higher impact on your ratings than someone who is a citizen... Politics.

I offered you a suggestion on improving the quality of the theme which pretty much agrees with everyone elses comments..
It... looks... rushed....

The name issue the only unique issue that I brought to the board and the facts of that issue are cleary defined.

Take it anyway you want, and make all the accusations you want.
If you must know, I rate it a 5 because it looks rushed and I know you can improve it if you want. I did not factor the name issue into the rating.

I'm not going to get into a big deal with you about it, it's your skin..

Nice skin, Shawn.

-I might not use the word rushed, but to me it's just not as cohesive as it could be. Appears to be more of a compatibility issue with colors/styles than a quality issue. I like it, well done


Looking forward to more.
