Johanne, the screenshot doesn't make justice to this skin. This is one of the most clean and usable skins I ever used. As for the colors, I like them all. Fantastic work, pixxy.

ooh, I like! Fun looking and usable. A vote for yellow as a possible additional color, but what the heck, they all look good.

Nice touch of texture on the frame, which is very cool. I particularly like the title 'bubble' which breaks up the titlebar frame nicely. (..and reminds me of an old Dangeruss skin - Dream?)

Very useable and clean! Update the screenshot asap, and consider showing the other colour options as a smaller box or something. You will double the downloads by doing that. Can't wait to see the toolbar icons!

Essorant: no not Dangeruss. Fitting name for this skin considering it seems heavily inspired by our Bionic Dot WMP 9 Skin and the same skin we're porting for the competition. From the washed out colors on the top - to the reflection mapping on the bottom left corner. Amazing coincidence that it's exactly the same 4 colors as well.

Don't believe me? http://www.theskinsfactory.com/tsf-temp/bionic.jpg

Essorant: Yes, Russ Schwenkler aka Dangeruss did that one http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.asp?library=1&SkinID=1044

Since you've been making it clear from before the contest even kicked off that maybe, if you could find the time, you would do a WB from another in-progress project, I think we're all quite clear that TSF will be submitting only one WB entry.

To be fair, I have to say that I agree with TSF that this skin is more similar to Bionic Dot than Dream. It shares that characteristic white-'bubble'-title-thing with Dream, but little more.

Though it shares a few things with Bionic dot: the thin sides, thick top&bottom, similar lighting styles at the top, and similar texturing on the bottom (also weighing to the left side). So I think it's unfair to TSF to deny any similarities.

HOWEVER, I think that's all they are: similarities. I'd say that a very large proportion of the skins submitted here (or anywhere else) have similarities with some other skins out there. There are only so many shapes, so many lighting effects, so many button styles, that can be done, and no skin will be 100% totally fresh and new in every respect, stylistically speaking.

I don't think that Alexandrie, or any skinner, deserves this big fuss that's been made, and I don't believe that TSF should have allowed himself to be drawn into making such a big fuss about it.

Nice we have another GUI Olympics drama now (NOT!). Very nice for the community also(NOT!). I can imagine some site owners and a well known bunch from another site sharpening their knifes already. TSF, You have done Yourself AND the community no favour by doing this in public instead of mailing Johanne first. But I remember You attacking her on that wmp skin also. Personal issues perhaps ? Don't know...
