Just No......?

Why not...the more input, the better it might be...I know its not the greatest but its pretty good considering it was made using Gimp.

i wouldn't just say no... but as it is currently i don't like the color scheme ... i'm not much of a skinner to give you good advice on what to do, but try and get rid of that blue-to-black-to-white fade ... maybe a metalic thing? i know its getting old, but on a skin like that ... it sorta requests a metalic feel to it ...

But hey, what you made is ten folds what i would possibly be able to make ... which is almost close to zero

I like that volume thingy set up as some sort of a arm...
Get rid of that glass thing, make something more original, that twinkling looks cool, but needs some work..

And for the colors, they don't look to good, and use some lightning or filters to get more 3d look...

Make it a circle with all the buttons, but make the little arm thingy the volume slider. That'd be cool.

Wanna see my Winamp 3?

I will try to encorporate as many of your ideas as I can but it might take a few days as I am not the best skinner out there. I personally think the main problem lies in the program I am using. Its called Gimp and its supposed to be the best you can get for free but I think it really stinks. Thanks for your opinions and keep them comming!

God i'm so glad you changed your avatar... and to elaborate... i agree with naamloos, it does need a more polished, 3D look, and the colors are terrible

the grey doesnt fit the blue, your avatar looks nice but it´s too small (too see what's there)
also, make that grey round a border and see if that looks better

You will find no illegal files on that site, just links. Technically, it is just as illegal as yahoo, google, cnn, and yes, winamp.com.

I would have warned you, but I never had that happen to me. The most I got was a pop up or 2, but not even that anymore because the new Mozilla builds lets you turn off certain javascript functions, and I turned off the anoying ones.

I think the skin needs some love and care. It's a good start.
The gray should go as far as i'm concerned, I liked the blue better.
A nice bevel would be nice too.

On the other subject, Get right is alright.. I like and use it.
Do a search for download utilities.

And kiddies, you should never surf the web without pop-up stopper.
Get it here.
Kills em dead...

Thanks for the suggestions...I will try to change the gray to a bluish color to match the rest...but I don't want to do the exact same thing...I want a different color than blue for that backround but I can't seem to get a shiny silver look to it, thats why I had the black to white gradient in there. I'll see what I can do...

<---Thanx Guys--->

It'll be a while until my next post due to the fact that I crashed my home cpu...but I'll post a new pic asap
