1001Skins

1001Skins.com - Will soon be alive again. It has been on hiatus as a result of Max Bloch not able to devote the attention it deserves. However, I have been working with Max for years and will now take over primary ownership of 1001skins. In addition to this there will still be a partnership with Max; going forward with 1001skins.

We believe it to be the best thing for this great community of artists, designers and creators. Though, I must admin I have much more grandiose plans for the site.

~ Keep the bat channel clear folks...

It is in progress...this will take time, but soon everything will be ready. I have some basic plans to get everything setup and then I will be branching out the base once I have it back in place.

~ Victhor - yes, to your pm. If you'd like to contribute your idea's message me 1001skins(at)outlook.com or garrjo(at)gmail.com

I'm also rebuilding my pc, finishing a skin and more...::busy week:: lol.

webmaster(at)1001skins.com -> isn't quite ready to send to me yet, until the DNS has been forwarded to the new host.

1001skins.com now routes without issue...max should be uploading the old site soon.

Things are going pretty good...after I get the code; there may be a period of downtime while I configuring some updates/encryption for the data to protect the site.

Other than this, shouldn't be very much longer. The site will likely redirect to a sub (_s2) while I build the new version (_s1). Or some such...

Additionally, I will be changing/removing the ads from the site. We will also, have a 'community channel'

Just rebuilt the search...now, on to uploads. The search is very simplistic at this stage. Soon, I will have a slew more of search capabilities built in...but, after I have rebuilt the upload and tidied up some other areas...

idea for the site (what do you think?):

Interviews with old / historical skins designers, so we can know what they are doing / working on, what´s their thinking about modern music (players and industry in general), about design or whatever they want to talk about.

May be kind of hard to find some of them, but I think people would like to know what happened to designers of classics / good old skins like MMD3, Zen, Invicta, Boom, Peter Clark´s (he is "reachable"), Kameleon (now on iPod/iPad apps development), Blueslaad´s, GeorgeHarrison´s, etc.

Great Idea...I am rewriting the code for 1001. I just didn't like where I was going with the current.

I'm in no rush...I also have every skin ever published with 1001. Many are problematic...in that they do have xml failures with the current version of winamp (modern).

other than this ... you have a great idea vic.

The site will have the following members types:
-Admin
-Moderators
-Skinners
-User
-Guest

All skins submitted will automatically process for screenshots (wal, wsz or wml/wcl (bwuahaha))

In any event yes, a great idea.

Looks like you´re putting your best effort on it! I have a lot of ideas actually, just filtered it to the ones that could give a plus to the site (or a distinctive feature so it´s not just a repository-web).
In the same line, (maybe you already think of this..) I think that if those skins you mention could be "repaired" before uploading, it would also be a great addittion to the site, making it unique, a reference for actually working skins, something Deviantart doesn´t have nor winamp.com, which depends on every -usually absent- uploader.. but again, idea may be just nonsense if it´s work for just one guy, let´s hope someone come up willing to help with that.. (I´m not so good at coding, I could try, but I´m afraid I´m not the best bet for it).

Another idea (just a minor thing), what about a space for "hidden gems"? Instead of the classic "featured skins" (or in adittion to), you can have some sort of monthly/weekly article where you feature skins that were somehow ignored when released but still are quite good skins.. the idea is the same as the new "undiscovered" feature of devart but in this case it´s focused on one skin at the time (with a couple of words saying why it is a good skin or what makes it good, etc)..

Good idea's Victhor - though, to fix them I'd have to have a reference point to which compare...and each winamp modern skin is custom to the developer, scripts and creator that made it. So, unfortunately, it will likely mean that a majority of those skins that are in the database will be dumped in favor of 'working' bases. They will be left in the database and all attempts will be made to have the original author correct the failure of the skin but, it is likely they will be forever lost.

On another note, slow going is all this development...but I am working on it and one day I hope to have a release of some sort.

Oouucch, you´re totally right in that, I never thought about how do you determine which behaviour was tried to achieved how..

Talking about database, did you see too much skinner gunk in there? =D

I see you´re testing another layout for the site.

One small observation: Maybe "Designers" would be better than "authors" (in the tabs parts) since you´re heading the site in that direction. Although maybe "authors" would be better to contemplate coders too.. maybe "Skinners"? "Artists"?

Very little...I have had to revamp everything from the ground up...With exception the very basic design implementation. With that being said, I've just built search functionality back. Sigh; also many of the skins do not have screenshots. As a result, I'm having to do some tricky server magic...(unzipping and searching for graphics that may exist when their currently does not exist an image and extracting...while not yet perfect; it at least is working).

Hi garetjax !
Congrats on your "new" site... this is the place to find skins now ! And also, congrats on the way to download skins... finito those horrible .zip skins from deviantART !!
I'm not a skinner, just an admirer & your skins are amongst my favourites, along with a few from peacemaker such as Remnant, Necromesh... My favourite of yours are Srii & NecroMesh II.
There's a question that bothers me: why are most of the Winamp 2 & 3 skins with an AVS non-skinned??
Many of your early skins don't have the AVS (visualization) skinned. I think that's a pity, because if you have 4 windows on your desktop (Main, Eq., Viz. & Playlist Editor), it detracts terribly if the AVS is unskinned.
Can't you go back on some of your older skins & skin the AVS now ??
I encounter the same problems with the artists mentioned in a very interesting article I found in deviantART, an excerpt of h, the piece beeing titled: Winamp Skinners:Elite Class.
You are mentioned, I'm sure you'd enjoy reading it if you haven't done it yet !
Now, I'm going. Hope to have an answer !

Electric Fox...thank you.

There may be a few of those zips still. Though, I try to allow wsz/wal type skin formats; it is up to the author that submits to them to allow them to be uploaded as the correct file type.

Thank you for noting my skins...Many of my early attempts at skinning did not have the AVS skinned as it wasn't always there or was skinned through other windows. As time progressed and marched on things changed. At one point or another I may revisit some of the old ones and provide an AVS (though, generally if I begin work on them I actually redo them...and some become another animal altogether).

Thank You,

Joe Garrett
