Hrmmmm, well, Doggy Dog asked me to remix Extravagant Amp, and I started, and it's looking pretty cool, but it's inelligible for the contest. Maybe I could get Max to maybe kinda let Doggy Dog publish it...

flatmatt, I'll check out what the story is with that skin. I'll get back to you.

As for the contest, the second and third prizes are now 100% confirmed and in my possession, ready to send to the winners. Negotations for the other prize/s are under way. It's moving along, but be patient

Ohh, do you by chance have the PSD files for copper? If not, no biggie, just makes it easier

This is what I've done so far, not much and not exactly a remake, but I guess it's easy to see where the inspiration comes from

By the way, I don't feel like reading this thread again, so how will the judging be done? Will there be a jury or a popular voting?

Judging: There will be around 6 judges. One will be Max (the webmaster of 1001), and the rest I will select. They'll be selected using the following criteria:

-they can't be taking part in the contest as a remixer
-they need to have shown that they are worthy of respect in the skinning community (at 1001, here, or otherwise)
-they have to represent a wide variety of skinning tastes. For instance: Metal/'artgroup-style', HiFi, and pic-skin styles will all be represented, as well as others.

There are more than enough people that fit this description, and there won't be two judges who have a very similar skinning style (otherwise it would be like having more than 1 Russian judge at the figure-skating ) so I hope no one is disappointed if I don't contact them! I will not be a judge.

Jellby: I'm flattered, and I can't wait to see the finished product! I don't know how useful they would be to you (especially since my .psp files don't appear very organised to the untrained eye ), but the .psp files are available if you want them - perhaps the volume eagle would fit well in your remix?

Why thank you. I'd darn well better finish the remix now...

Oh, and an additional rule for judges -- they shouldn't be allowed to have their own skins remixed for the contest. That could skew it as well. I'm sure it was just a minor oversight, though, right?

Nope, we thought of it a long time ago. It's a brigde we'll cross if we come to it, but most likely, judges will simply not be permitted to give 'permission' for their skin to be remixed for the contest.

The thing with the ampburger--is it vodka driven?--oh, wait, that's someone else.

Actually, it's a darn fine skin, but it's not really a remix in my opinion. More like a completely different skin with the same idea.

I think this remix contest should allow remixing ideas too, not just graphics It's about making a "legal" rip, and I believe some people could say e-raser's skin is a rip if it were not for the contest.

if its just a shifting of images, i cant see this contest being practical. i can just take the most popular skin out there and make some slight alterations alaround and presto now skin. i thought that the two skins should realate but not actualy be the same. a theem of element in common is one thing but a altered version of a previuse skin is just plain boring.

Exactly.

It's essentially about making your version of someone else's skin - taking their skin but adding your touch to it. Of course, in many cases, possibly most, this will involve using many of the original graphics of the original skin, but this can also mean re-doing the original skin in a different way. A good example is Jellby's remix of my "Zima" skin (he posted a screenshot several posts up). It's obviously using new graphics, but he's making what is essentially a Jellby-African-summer version of what is a ¤db¤-European-winter skin: The layout, the animals, the tree, the horizon, it all alludes quite specifically to the "Zima" skin, but he's taken a considerably different take on it. In e-raser's case, because he chose such a characteristic skin to remix, his remix will definitely be seen as an homage to the original Burger skin.

Regardless of how you do your remix, the trick is to find a good balance: by paying respect to the original skin and making sure your remix still has a strong connection to it, yet also giving the remix its own distinctive character by adding your own personal touch.

forum amp

maybe its because theres another currently in progress
or maybe its because i just realized set style in options
but the idea of remixing a forum amp with either ninja or the nsdn
colors and the fresh lok of the winamp.com forums in general sound like a change and err challenge.
and maybe like the last couple threee or so skin/contests i probablly wont bother , especiallly since its a 1001 contest, but that was 1/2 the brainstorm

i think there is a regular skinner in these forums who created just such a skin, aside from the a fore mentioned skin. so spill the beans
as to who it is so i can ask for there permission or better yet just say ya or nay here. just to lazy to search for who the mental strain of the idea alone has just flumoxed me

help

oh i found it in the 1001 database
well thats half the battle and youve beenin this thread so help me out
well i see you updated just over a month a go

so maybe /maybe not
but the one at 1001 needs gen and genex too so it all kinda makes sense between the last 2 posts

i may have to actually give this a go

DAM!!!!!

hey arus this thought of a forum amp remix could get just as hard as trying to get permission to remix a fusion amp

what if you and matt both throw me your support and i workem both over and meld em together with a new flava

hell this is my third post in about an hour
see the benefits of search and the brain power behind this idea

hell i should ask scrag to but then it would all be cut and paste

what do ya say scrag j/k (but it is a thought) so???

but seriously i should put this comment in your thread to just to bring it back to the top and to say i hope to see another skin from ya in the future. hopefully you find it here

try paintshoppro 30 day d-l its 8.0 now.


any other known variants of winamp.com/ a.k.a forums.winamp.com/a.k.a tribute to winamp/ a.k.a fusion kidding, to be thrown into the mix

anyone or all three of your permission would be greatly appreciated
