That depends on how drunk and stoned the reviewers got last night and weather or not they decide to come in to work. LOL

But seriously. It depends on the backlog of skins. They seem to be cranking them out lately.. So your guess is as good as anybodies..

Hey, all right! I do like penguins!

penguin_girl14, can you give us a link to your skin?

In the meantime, check out this one, from Waddling Penguin Media. A favorite skin of mine.

Lunatic fringe, we know you're out there.

1-2 weeks at the earliest.
Try making more skins in the mean time.

To let people see your skin before it's published, you use the sneak in method.
Log into winamp where your skin is, Go to the page where it lists your skin as unpublished. Theres a link to it on the bottom of that page. Hit the link and it will take you to your skin. Copy the address in the url bar and post it here.
Hope I got that right.

Or you can upload your skin to a site of your own. And make it availible for d/l that way. This requires that you get your own free webspace somewhere like, Geocities, homestead,
theglobe.com, anywhere you can build your own webpages.

But when you do that. Most people will want to see a screencap of your skin.

To create a screencap. Which basically means to take a picture of your skin.

With winamp running and open on your desktop.

1) Hit the print screen button on your keyboard. The button just to the right of f12 on the top of your keyboard. this will copy whatever is on the sceen to your system clipboard.

2) open the photo editing application that you use for creating skins.

3) Select new file.

4) select edit/paste
The picture of your destop with your winamp skin should now be in the picture you just made.

5) save it somewhere and upload it to the web at a webspace that you have somewhere.

6)view the pic, copy the url in the url bar of your browser
Post it here. for people to see.

Hope I got that right...

penguin girl14, yes I have already d/led your skin. It's very cute. Have you tried making a skin without the skinner tool. If not you should. You have an eye for placement.

Chad.. man dudez... youz needz to be chill'in a bit.
Now start chanting with me.. Melllllooooowww Melllllooooowww.... Keep at it... LOL

Some good ideas you have their p. girl! If you really don't want to get rid of skinner, then use the buttons only option, so you will just be left with a base skin. Then you will get more original work full of your own ideas and inventions, AND... no one need every know you used skinner at all Of course you get a better sense of it actually being your own work if you start from scratch on a skin with just a paint program and about a thousand layers in it LOL. I will probably get shot for encouraging the use of skinner.

I DIDNT USE A SKINNER

no skinner! seriously! using only ms paint, i did it the old-fashioned way...i looked at it and kinda judged where the button would go, and it was all trial-and-error..how about that for a newbie, huh?! ^_^ UP YOURS! lol, just kidding ^_~...next time, ill try to make it more complicated..but im not gonna use a skinner...it may b frustrating to figure out if i should copy what part of the pic where and all that crap, but at least i think its more rewarding to have done all the work myself! ta-ta for now ^_^

btw...

OK then, Penguin Girl. You've got the eye, the guts, and the know-how. Time to stop studying... "Winamp Classic" for inspiration and start thinking outside the skinner mold.

Take a look at these threads to see what some other skinners think is good:
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?threadid=42937
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?threadid=42703

As for the trial-and-error part, that's a darn waste of energy. WSD Skins has a good tutorial with a great template skin. Kimmo's base skin

So hang out for a while, what say, and see what's passing through this forum. I want to know what you can do with penguins when you really break loose.

Lunatic fringe, we know you're out there.
