That is absolute and utter rubbish. There is no way - just no way- this is your first blind. Total poppycock! this is one of the best blinds I have seen yet. I call liar!!! No way no way this is a first effort. The start menu alone is the work of a heavyweight pro.

Seriously though- if this is your first blind- imagine how good the future ones are going to be!!!

I have one problem. When I mouseover all programs in the start menu the mouseover image does not work properly. this may be because I use larger fonts (+40%) in WB or it could be the blind missing an image.

awsome skin 10 stars I have all 3 ver. of your toolbar icons and use them regularly One small issue i have noticed is the blue highlight on popup menu's[ie.Links on IE and the icons in my system tray]is little to far right keeps missing the first letter of what it is highlighting Outside that seems perfect

This is a very nice skin. I like transparent blinds
I have a few suggestions.
-If the taskbar and menu could be transparent; that would be awesome!
-A Compact mode in the skin would be very nice..
-Glowing effect for start botton and "close" "maximize" "minimize" would complete the look

overall this is a nice skin.

Great One ! The only thing that holds me from applying it is the taskbar. It is too huge for me and needs some more work in my opinion.

Very nice!
I'll second two of the above comments:
* Taskbar could use a little work. Could be smaller. The separators (e.g., by the quicklaunch area) seem a little out of place.
* Would like glow effects, and perhaps mouseover colors (EDIT: I now see the red on close), on min/max/close

Also, the arrow icon to view hidden items in the tray, and those used to open/close task sections in folder views, are a bit large for my liking.

Good job, though, especially for your first skin! Look forward to seeing more!


EDIT: In the screenshot, I see some windows with rounded edges and others with sharper corners. Seems that everything on my system has the sharper/square corners. Maybe I need to reboot.

Thank you all for the nice comments! I REALLY appreciate it!
So it seems there are a few issues with the skin:

The glowing effect appears to be a hot topic, I'll see what I can do about that.

hherbzilla: All windows should be with rounded corner (WB5), and square windows are MDI and opaque windows (WB4), are you sure you are using WB5? just asking...
Does the taskbar appear on your desktop as it does on the preview here? Beause the preview is what I get on my screen, may it does come from the font size? I dunno and will investigate.

Carl[c242]: Again, the taskbar, eh? Well, if you could post me a small screenshot so that I can see what's wrong, I'd appreciate it and would try to fix the issue.

Greg2: It seems to me you are using the RightClick program, am I correct? If this is the case, I haven't tested it for I don't use it. So I'm gonna install it on my desktop and see what's wrong with that! And thank you for the nice comment!

kin242: I like your comment, made me laugh! . Actually, I spent almost 6 months on this skin (not 24/7 though), I just wanted to make sure everything was at the right place, but obviously it does not work that way... I've seen so many first skins around were it looks like the skinner just put some stuff together on put it out just to see what kind of comment he/she's gonna get, and it's ugly or unusable, that I tried my best to avoid this pitfall. I'm gonna look into this start menu problem. Thank you for the feedback!

drklantern: I tried to post this wallpaper a while ago (the one on the preview), but it has been rejected. It is true that it was a special resolution (for laptop widescreen), so...

rkk03, lgspence, jimkraz, xgman, BX, Xthase, alphabyte and WhyZeeGuy: Thanks a lot for the cool comments, I'm glad you guys like it!

TO EVERYBODY: Thank you for the feedbacks, it will help me make a better skin (hopefully!)
