I have 4 out of the 5, and sometimes all 5 Master Skins on the front page of WC right now. I spend 8-10 hours a day, 7 days a week designing and trying to improve my skins, and when they are done I want to post them to the site, but I can't. I can't because I feel like I should wait for others to submit their Master Skins so they have front page time, but alas, no one submits and I am beginning to wonder why.
There are 44 Master Windowblinds skins in the gallery right now, and since I became a Master around a year and a half ago, 20 of them are mine and I have one other finished (Allure) and just waiting for time to pass, and one more (Brilliance) in the works!
So where are the other Master Skinners? I know why vStyler and Xiandi are not skinning right now, but what about the other Masters? TomRichter, MikeB314, adni18, theAVMAN, Vampothika and other Master Skinners... where are you? I miss seeing your works, and I am sure others miss them too.
Hi guys, Master RND here. I'll bet most of you wish you could forget me.....
Bryan...you're always forgotten....but I still know where you live....
hahaha.... And you'd be welcome any time sir!
I are the Under Master...get it...Under......never mind.
Thanks for the compliment.
I am going to overhaul Peppermint xmas if it counts?
i have 16 master skins iv done ready for when i can sell them on here ,,i spent a lot of time tweaking them to perfection , i was going to give them for free but i decided to wait it out
Madcat I will buy your skins. I think you are one of the skinners (there are others) that see the value in shapes. Your skins seldom have square lines and I applaud you for that. You are a great theme skinner.
thank you mate iv not had much time this year for skinning but i will try to knock a few out after christmas
What is your current rank, MC?
I ask because the OSes and WindowBlinds app are both changing, if you hold them too long, they will likely need tweaking before being sold.
Oh, and I agree with JC, your skins are imaginative and push limits.
Say Paul, do you know why it is that users cannot see another users ranking any more in their profile?
Seems like different things disappear around here with no explanation at all.
I think it fell off about the time of the last revision....where the avatars now show as they do with the joining date etc at the left of these commenta.
I'd imagine they will return on the next update or there abouts...
For those concerned about rank don't feel bad. I was had worked myself up to apprentice 2 or something like that and now I see I am back down to Current Customer, lol. Que Sera Sera
JC that's not your ranking. That use to show on the left side but as Jim said hasn't shown for quite awhile now. So we all have to assume we are what we were last time it was visible.
JC...you still list as Apprentice...
Thanks for the info.
yep... 'Wincustomize Site' link, for those originals who had a site set up, just goes to Wincustomize Profile page.... hope that is returned soon...
well, you are the Master of Screenshotting... we all know that...
I don't know about that. From looking at some of the shots posted lately I have some serious competition. Time to step up my game I think. I still have a few tricks up my sleeve that no one has seen yet.
yep... there are a number of master shotters out there... some lovely creative screenies... love seeing what people come up with...
looking forward to them...
Well, one can still get to their site, those of us who have been here long enough to have one. Just not the easy way.
Tom, I can be speaking for myself only as I don´t know why other masters have stopped circulating new skins. In passing years I have been releasing a plenty of skins. However because of having another newborn I have had to change my priorities. Family comes first now and it will be that way for some time. They have been "waiting" on me for couple years as if I had a spare time I put that into skinning. So now it´s my turn to give a little payback to my most beloved.
A time for skinning is a luxury I do not have these days, for above reason given of course. And some need to sleep, ha ha. However if I have some free secs I am always poking around to see what is new or to give an advice if required or to encourage folks around.
I understand you Tom or other folks. However sometimes the life beyond skinning requires more effort so one does not have a time to do what they love the most.
However I have never said I gave up. I am just taking a break. After those years I guess I can take a bit.
To you Tom I just wanna say this. I have spotted several complaints saying you have done couple of similar skins recently. My advice to you is that you don´t need to listen up if you don´t want to. You were skinning at the time I did not know anything of it as well as those nonsayers. You are a respected member of this community. Your visible approach is to deliver functionality. Bearing that in mind there isn´t infinite options about skinning user friendly. A lot of folks sometimes do not get how tricky and tough way is to skin everything during the nights when one is buting their butts meanwhile the other sleeping okay are just coming and critisize. Constructive critique = good. But such as rude all those that just try to push one back = those are for nothing. All what I want to say is that you have been amongst the skinners who inspired me. So keep it up. You do just great, Tom.
