Theres only two things you need to adhere by. Showing your startbar and no extra entries. Otherwise have fun with it and lets see how people customize.

okay, so winamp and open windows are kosher, to show complete skinning?

Are we posting big pics or imageshack thumbnails??? and by extra entries you mean???

posted by  elchango36

Post a big pic or imageshack thumbnail. By extra entries I mean you can only post one in this thread to be judged on. And Dodger you can show extra windows and winamp skins thats fine if that pleases you.

Alright, guess I'm up first.

EDIT: I feel so smart, I definitely put up the wrong screenshot. Here is my actual desktop that I am submitting. For those of you who want to see the tester - PM me and I'll link it for you.

BTW, please don't mind the name of my wireless network. I got fed up with bozos stealing my internet connection and taking up bandwidth that I encrypted it and named it that.

I'm definitely gonna have to look into that blackbox program. I think I'm the only one who used a windowsblinds skin. Oh well time to check out blackbox.

posted by  Spanky2324

Actually, mine is a combo of Blackbox with plugin enhancements and styles, winamp skins, and a windowblinds skin ;)

I actually run my blackbox over top of explorer. You can run it as your only shell, but i run it on top, so that if I run into something that blackbox either doesnt have functionality for(or I dont have the plugin yet), i can just shut it down and go back to windows.

I used a combo of Objectbar and Windowsblinds.

Yeah we can vote too. I guess votes are over after the holidays and then after that we can just display other work that we've done after.
