Classic Skin Contest!

Announcing . . . .

The Nostalgia Classic Skin Contest


I don't know about you, but Winamp Classic skins make me misty for the heady, carefree days of yore. Of a simpler, kinder time. Of a time some call "2001".

In keeping with this theme of sparkly-eyed sentimentality, I want to see your best childhood memory/obsession/interest/experience made into a classic skin. Take a minute to revisit your past and start fishing out some creative and skinnable ideas. If you're having trouble kickstarting your brain, look below for some random thoughts.


The Premise:

Pick some element of your childhood. It doesn't have to be infantile; for the sake of this contest, I'm going to say "childhood" is the period of time between birth and high school graduation. It doesn't have to be about any one specific thing, either. You can skin a memory, a place or an emotion. This contest has no specific mood either; you can create a reverent skin, a mushy sentimental skin, or a skin with detached comic irony. Whether you praise your childhood or brutally skewer it is up to you.


The Rules:

1. This contest is open to everyone. Yes, that means you.
2. Classic Winamp skins only. Modern skins will not be accepted.
3. Contest deadline is midnight, Monday, September 6th. Midnight = midnight forum time. Absolutely no extensions.
4. The Main, EQ, Playlist, Media Library and Video windows MUST be skinned. If they are not skinned, you will receive an automatic 0 points for your completeness score. Cursors, MikroAmp, and old Minibrowser are optional, however, if you skin them all, you will receive an automatic 10 points for completeness.
5. All entered skins will be judged on creativity (which includes how well the theme was interpreted), usability and completeness. Creativity is half the score, so let your imagination run wilder than a gaggle of children living solely on sugar.
6. Posting your skin-in-progress in the forums is permitted, but not required. You can show it off and brag about it to everyone, or you can keep it a secret and enter the competition anonymously if you want. It's completely up to you.
7. You may submit up to 3 skins, but take care to value quality over quantity.
8. When you've finished your skin, please e-mail it to reverbe2 at yahoo dot com (substitute @ for "at" and . for "dot")
9. I will post all the skins shortly after the deadline. Judging will be open to all forum members and contest participants and will be scored based on the judging criteria below. All scores will be submitted to me via private message. The judging period will be precisely 10 days.
10. The winner will be the creator of the skin with the highest combined score. There is no formal prize, just the well-earned accolades of your peers.


Judging Criteria:

Creativity: 25 pts.
Usability: 15 pts.
Completeness: 10 pts.

TOTAL POINTS: 50


And finally . . .

I'm organizing this contest to rekindle a bit of the old Skin Love spirit, which I always found to be friendly and helpful. My other goal is to kickstart some latent creativity and give you incentive to get around to that skin you always meant to make. But above all, have fun with it!

If you need to question, comment or kvetch, you can PM me, or e-mail the aforementioned reverbe address.

Now get going!

Is this what you have decided on for definate? only asking as you have about 4 threads on the go about this contest in here, it's getting more crowded than a French brothel at happy hour.

If this is what y'all doing I'll close up some of the others.

Yes, please close the contest idea thread and the two polls. I'd like to keep everything in one thread now.

The contest has been discussed for awhile and I decided it was time to take the reins and start making some decisions. There's no way I can please everyone; I hope those who choose not to enter the contest will support it with comments on skins and with judging in September.

dlinkwit27 - If you read rule #9, you'll see that the judging is a "let the public vote for a week" kinda thing (10 days, actually). I chose to go with a PM vote instead of a public poll just to make the judging a bit more sophisticated and a bit more honest.

Awwe, I'd rather not have the list up there, it came creepily close to unveiling both of my two ideas. If I state my ideas, can I "call" them? I don't want anybody else doing "Magna-Doodle" or "Where's Waldo." Those are mine, and I plan on putting a lot of work into finishing both of them (Hopefully...).
And I almost want to suggest that "old video games" be disallowed, since that's my shtick and a completely seperate genre. But, to each his own. I like this contest already. And I like your avatar, Not in Santiago.

Usability: 15 pts.
Completeness: 10 pts.

TOTAL POINTS: 50
"

I couldn't really think of many ideas, but when I started reading that great list, they started flooding in!

I fully intend to start a new skin for this contest, but it would also give me a good incentive to, in addition to that, finish off the Commander Keen skin that I started about a year ago. Is that allowed? Or is that a no-no?

dlinkwit: Yes, that's the judging criteria. I just wanted people to give a reasonable amount of consideration to their choices. In the end it's all subjective, so you'll give the ones you like best higher scores, in effect "picking" them. Right?

StillWater: I knew there was something I forgot to mention! Half completed (i.e. works in progress) and unpublished skins are allowed. Published skins . . . well, I'd hate to turn down entries. Let's just say published skins are not encouraged.

oooh. maybe i'll finish the k'nex skin. . . I like this contest. I'm still in high school, going into senior year in september. Does that mean i can use my entire life as nostalgia? I'm actually not planning to. I think i'm doing tv shows from when i was little. But, would I have been allowed to?

Good question! Nostalgia is all about "the past", though how far back something has to go to be worthy of nostalgia is a debatable issue. I would like to see people of all ages enter this contest, so I say if the subject isn't immediately recent (like, say, of the last year or two), then you're fine. Personally, I think it's more fun to revisit something you haven't thought about in awhile.

Happy to see some interest! (I was worried . . .) Can't wait to see your skins, y'all.

Can I submit my entire catalogue of old game skins? Just kidding. I'm using this as an excuse to do non-game skins, although they'll probably have a lesser chance of winning than if I did another old game skin. But it's all in fun.

Again, I'd hate to turn down entries, so I'm not going to say you can't do that, however you may take a hit in points if the skin isn't tied more closely to the theme. I suppose you could get clever about it and make it an ode to the way you used to skin or something like that, but I'd encourage you to get into your mental Delorean and dive back a bit further into your past.

Here are a few links for you (or anyone else struggling with the theme) that may or may not help:

http://www.fccj.org/library/deerwood/reference/pop.htm (look for links under your relevant decade)

http://www.nostalgiacentral.com/

http://www.inthe90s.com/index.shtml


And anyway, you've got over 6 weeks, so take your time thinking about it.

I love deloreans. In fact, that reminds me... (hope I can find this...) I dind't make this, but the readme credits it properly.

http://www.goateestyle.com/goods/skins.phtml Find the Winamp Skin entitled "Delorean Time Machine skin." It's very cool, but old and thus not complete by todays standards. But worth looking at.

Hey It's good to see something happening here again (why do I always miss the fun? :P)
I like the theme, but the deadline is a bit short for me.. I have to learn for exams until Aug. 13th.. and then I'm planning to participate in another general art contest, too

Nostalgia means all that's old, right? So could I do a skin on memories?

also, yay @ public vote



The skin love webring

Oh, exams schexams. You don't really need to take those, do you?

You can most certainly make a skin about memories. But don't tease me with such a great idea - go and make that skin! (said the person who isn't currently going to school and really has nothing better to do . . .)


//BTW, that Delorean skin is sweet - thanks for the link, Luigi

As mentioned before (somewhere), I'm on vacation August 16 (tomorrow) - August 25. I don't think I'll have internet access, but who knows . . . stranger things have happened.

So I won't be available to comment, answer questions or receive entries, although you can still e-mail them to me - just don't expect a confirmation reply until I get back.

Ciao for now!

Two have entered. About the "still to come", I'm afraid it's starting to look more and more like 0. I pm'ed/e-mailed all those who talked about entering in any capacity on Friday, but I haven't heard back from everyone yet. This could mean one of two things: they're too busy skinning to reply, or there's a whole guilt avoidance thing going on.

Still, I remain ever the deluded optimist and hold out hope that there will be some last minute entries.

Guess krock and db just screwed your idea over. Time too get back to trying to make the skins section work. Don't worry, you'll get it eventually, no matter how many site versions it takes.

It's nostalgic if I say it is.

And I say that ... it is.

Luigi: That looks cool. Some notes:

-And it's a theme which should carry very well through all the windows, not just the main+eq, which is important (although making those curved sides look good on the other 3 windows will probably be annoying)

-I don't like the idea of having those dark grey buttons on the bottom-left of the MAIN, since they are 'fake' buttons. Maybe you could use a bit of 'poetic license' and change the location and size of those buttons, and make them the /\\/X buttons.

-I can barely read the text on the posbar - maybe use the font from the text.bmp

-The unpressed buttons (cbuttons, rep, etc.) are way too faint on my monitor.
