Ironically, it's actually 3 from the bottom of the queue, as we see the queue in reverse. Every time you delete and re-submit, it goes to the end of the queue.

Skin Disapeared! ( IT-83amp_version_one CID 3325 )

I had an old skin (1999-2000) in your system. I was checking up on it and I noticed that the screen shots really sucked for it. It looked like a beta version or something. I also noticed that I could upluad my own screen shots so I tried to do that. I was having issues with the size of the large screen shot but I eventually figured it out. The skin went from published to unpublished (no big deal.) But now when I look, it's no where in my profile. The other skin, Equalize ( 144219 ) is still there waiting to be published but TI-83amp_version_one is gone. I was hoping that maybe it could be found and put back up. If it help I have this link: http://www.geocities.com/pantha_37/winamp/TI-83amp/ that has pictured of the skin. I hope this post is in the right place. I moderate a section on mx6.com and I know how annoying it can be to "post wrong." Also, can I volunteer to review skins?

Is it complete?, are the video and gen windows skinned?

Don't have winamp or any method of unzipping the skin here at the minute.

I'll have a check later, but if it's missing those windows then it won't be published until everythings done.

Ask if you need help in skinning those areas.

I can skin them, it's just they weren't there in 1999 (no, the video and gen skins aren't there.) They are not included currently. I just don't see why the skin would just suddenly dissapear like that though. I tryed to resebmit the skin and it said a skin with the same name is in existance.

We've had a lot, and when I say a lot I mean A LOT, of database problems over the years.

Your skin dosn't show as being unpublished, nor dose it show any signs of actually being published, good eh

If you wanted my advice, I'd skin the missing couple of windows, re-submit it under a different name, call it TI-83amp v1 or something, that'll get you around the problem of the component name being duplicated in the database.

What I will do however, is try and re-publish your existing skin, I'll do that now, see if it shows up in your user profile in about an hour or so, if it does you should then be able to go and edit that submission, if it dosn't then follow the steps above and resubmit it as a v1/v2 or whatever

/ok, i've republished it, see if it shows up in about an hour or so...

Ok, it's back up on the site, it should hopefully now also be visable in your user profile.

http://www.winamp.com/skins/details.php?id=3325

You should now be able to edit it and add in any missing windows, submit new screenshots etc.

Incidentally, I believe that skin did get resubmitted, as I recall rejecting it for not having video or gen windows. That was before hearing the story, of course.

Thanks guys, I see it up there. I'll add ALL the skins needed for it to be complete and update it. I'm so glad you do that now. I have so many skins that are just the main window and nothing else form years ago.

Well, hmmm, it's still live on the site so there isn't any reason why it shouldn't be in your profile for updating, might be a site glitch.

If you still can't see it by the time you read this let me know and we'll try work something out.

I found out I have 2 accounts, All my stuff is under panther37@datapimp.org . I have another account under panther37@noremedy.com . My password for panther37@datapimp.org is broken. It is a forwarding address that I can't change anymore that forwards to an email I don't have anymore. So I can't get the email. If you send mail to it, the mail host @ datapimp will say that pantha37@comcast.net isn't a valid email anymore. I send an email to support@winamp.com but they haven't responded yet.

Might be a long wait getting anything from that email address, you might be quicker opening a new account and submitting your skin as a new submission, we can then remove the old one. Sadly we don't have any access to user details any longer like we used to do otherwise we could have probably fixed this right up for you.


Beauty of that is it'll also get a little front page exposure as well instead of going back into the database where it is already.

'sup to you, let me know what you decide to do so we can deal with your original submission

Not sure if this is appropriate here, but seemed like best place to post. I have submitted AVS packs to Winamp over the past couple of years... they've suddenly gone missing but when I try to resubmit it tells me that a plugin with that name is already in the database.

Heres what I've already done.

I've searched the database for my plugins... I get 0 results.

I've searched manually back to 2002... I couldn't find any of them.

Downloaded and prepared files from alternate location.

I attempted to resubmit, which resulted in the 'duplicate name' type error.

I read through FAQ until I got here.

I have submitted one other pack just today... that is unrelated... apologies in advance if it causes any confusion.

I have all of the data etc to resubmit (am guessing its a db error or something) but would like to have any of the comments, ratings or d/l counts from the original submissions if possible... even better would be if they could be totally restored.

I don't have their CIDs as I can not see them but the titles were:

Jheriko - RePack 1
Jheriko - Pack II
Jheriko - Pack III
Jheriko - Pack IV
Jheriko - Pack V
Jheriko - Purely Platonic Minipack
Jheriko - Pack VI
Jheriko - J7
Jheriko - Pack VIII
Jheriko - Winamp.com Exclusive Minipack
Jheriko - Pack 9

Some of the older ones may have had longer names... but I can't remember exactly how I submitted them... I'm sure I kept it simple similar to the above.

Feel free to be insulting if I missed the obvious somewhere down the line... otherwise I'll never learn.

Thanks in advance.

I found this list in the review database. What is significant here is the "WA3" notation. These were all submitted as Winamp3 components. They would all have to be re-submitted now because the Winamp3 database is gone, I don't know where, but it's gone.
You'd have to use a slightly different name though.

Played a bit with both of them. Submitted version did not work at first, (same problem as before), tried forum version. That one worked but I could not get the main, switched to the submitted version again, same now as the other one, no main.

Shut Winamp down, deleted studio.xnf, restarted, skins work now.

Please re-submit.

I received an email this morning with the subject: "Your component submission was rejected"

Quote:
You did not submit a complete skin. Please skin all main windows then resubmit.

In Regards to Component: MAVO(35078)
This skin was submitted in early 2001, and included every window that was part of Winamp at the time, including main, playlist, equilizer, minibrowser, and the visualization window. Why is it suddenly considered incomplete over four years later? It's just as complete as my other two skins that are still on the site. I also notice that two of my photograph-based skins (the only two that I own full rights to, since the photos were taken by me!) have since been removed without notice. The mavo skin was really the only semi-popular skin I ever made, and I think it's a shame to have it removed. Thanks!

It still doesn't explain why my skin was removed intead of just put in the "incomplete" catagory. I read the thread just now. That thread was created in March. It's now September. I was never sent any notice, automated or otherwise, that my old skins needed any kind of revision.

I think it's unfair to expect people who made skins in years past to update these things without notice and then simply delete them when they aren't updated. My psychic crystal ball doesn't work very well, though obviously my emial address works, or I wouldn't have received the email telling me my skin was rejected. Why wasn't I sent an email back in March that said "Your skins are incompatible with the latest version of Winamp. If you want them to remain on the site, please update them according to the following guidelines" with a link to the appropriate files? In fact, the email made it sound like I had just created the thing and tried to submit it today.

I refused to download the new versions of Winamp (I still use Winamp 2.7) - I've never seen any reason to download it since the old version works just fine for me. I think that the abrupt removal of old "incomplete" skins (which are not so much incompelete as they are simply not up to standard for the new player) is extremely rude and a slap in the face to the people who spent a lot of time and effort to make them. I've got all my skins backed up on my website, so if you want to remove them from winamp.com, fine. The only thing you're doing is depriving others of the opportunity to download fun skins that they otherwise wouldn't get a chance to use. I'm sick with chickenpox right now (and I'm 31 years old!) and I don't have the energy to start revising skins.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but most people will be using an up to date version of Winamp, and they are the ones that are/will be complaining about skins like yours that are not up to date. I'm afraid they prefer fully skinned versions.

If you decide to update your skins in the future, let us know, and we will revive your old submission so you can upload the updated version.

It is very interesting that there are some people proclaiming to have the best skin on the site, but they don't care enough about those skins to update them (which really does not take very long). Yet, when those skins are removed, they all in a sudden care enough to register on the forum to file a complaint. Where where you when Winamp was updated, and why didn't you update your skins if they where that important to you?

And I am truly sorry you did not get your notice, but they are automatically send when a skin is republished. Your skin was in the "Incomplete" category, placed there by myself, and at that time you should have received a notice your skin was republished. You maybe did not get it, or maybe even ignored it, but I can't help that.
I am not going to make sure everybody who ever published a skin reads all the notices they get in their e-mail, neither am I sending notices in case the automated system does not work properly, which does happen at times.

This refers to a skin which I sucessfully submitted years ago, and which I know plenty of people have downloaded.

Why the rejection now?

it didn't according to the 5.x skinning specs since the video window and general purpose frames (as used by the media library) are falling back to the default base skin. so you need to get them done and then re-submit once done.. ref

I'm probably showing my ignorance here. I did this skin for WinAmp 2 which did not have Video or General Puspose frames. I was under the impression that a skin designted as "classic" was one that worked with WinAmp2, rather than later versions.
It would be helpful if the notification email gave a bit more info rather than just "your skin has been rejected".

Classic skins work with Winamp5, there is no such product as Winamp2 anylonger, it hasn't been actively called that for over 2 years now.

Winamp5 in classic mode has video support, has media library/ general purpose windows.

These windows were introduced in winamp2.91, the last 2.x release before the change to Winamp5

I Would Have Liked....

This morning I was greated by nearly a dozen " Your component submission was rejected" E-mails in my junk e-mail account I use to sign up for things, and to my great dismay I search winamp for the handle I used too use here and find that all my skins have been deleted. Now I realize that it was pure folly on my part to only have these skins backed up here and I really got what was coming too me. It's also completely understandable that you all, as a company or whatever you consider yourself now, would want to clean out your database.

I would have really apriciated an e-mail warning about it first though, so I could get a backup of what represents over a year of work on my part. Oh well, live and learn.

Your skins have been temporarily re-published. If you are updating them, we'll be looking forward to the new versions. Otherwise, at least you can save them now somewhere.

If this is the case then you still have the skins, so why remove them from the site and keep them locked away? Surely the whole point of removing them would be to free up space, so what's the point in keeping them and removing them from winamp.com? Sounds stupid to me, kinda like the new development team, hey lets take winamp, a lightweight mp3 player, and try and turn into windows media player? Double the resources it requires and add 2 tonnes of crap 90% of users dont need! Great we'll call it winamp 5!
