General Guidelines for Publishing Winamp2 Skins.

Do not publish Beta versions; discuss them first in the WA2 Skins Forum. Fully baked skins are much better.

Do not publish incomplete skins; every skin should at least have the Main, Equaliser,Play List and Browser skinned, we also like the video and AVS/ML/Gen windows skinned as well, cursors are a bonus, but not essential.

Controls, make sure you put as many controls as you can on your skin, skins have to be functional remember. This particulary applies to the EQ area remember God loves equalizers and punishes those who build skins without including his favorite toy.

Don't submit hundreds of colour variations of the same skin, these will only be rejected.

If you are going to use a skin tool to make your skin, then try keep the submissions down to a minimum, we allow 5 skinner skins per author, per day, the rest will be rejected, don't say we didn't warn you.

Unhappy A-Tek Rev. 2 submission appeal...

Hi guys...

I got in touch with Spacejazz and asked his permission before even working on the skin, then after adding the new sections, asked him again if it was ok to submit it to both WinAMP and DeviantART websites...

I have permission, can I put it back on ???

Short answer: No

Longer answer: Tell him we have to remove his skin than, as we don't allow duplicates. It is a lot better if he updates his own skin.

Got this email:

Your component 'Skin of no-skin' is now unpublished.

We experienced problems during installation. This needs to be resolved.

My question is:
Is my skin being rejected because it doesn't meet the minimum-window-requirement, or is there a problem with the skin that is causing it not to be installed successfully?

Your skin is rejected because there is nothing to see, skins have to be seen to be skins. If you submit nothing, that is exactly what gets published, nothing.

It can be seen - it looks like this (attached image)

I understand if this is not suitable for publication. I use it myself because I really like to optimize screen space and I feel an application used primarily for audio doesn't need to take up any screen space at all.

Objectionable Content?

I tried uploading my first skin about 2 days ago, and I recieved an email saying it continaed 'objectionable content' and was provided with a link to this thread, which apparently is about rips? Well, if this is the case, its completely bogus, because for one, the skin is pretty crappy, and not worth ripping at all whatsoever. The component ID is 136936... if there is something I'm not catching as to why it is not being accepted, please let me know.

To just have people in a thread say you have permission does not nessesarily move the reviewer, you need e-mails from the original authors compiled within a readme file and you need to state so in the description.

I submitted a Winamp 2 skin some time ago, Metroid Fusion Component ID: 126312. Last week it was removed. I never received any emails stating why, or what to do about it. Any help on this would be appreciated.

That is bull! No matter how I show you guys, I still had express written permission to remix those presets. I never emailed them for permission, it was all done over the forum.

I am gonna keep resubmitting this until it gets through.

And why would that be bull? That's what is required from the skinning community! Are you special and don't have to follow a simple rule when submitting remixed versions of other peoples work?

Permissions should always accompany the work, whether it be a skin or a pack does not make much difference. Copying the whole thread (or at least the relevant posts) to a readme file might do the trick also. But do mention the permissions in the pack description.

Just ask the people at Winamp 2 skins what hoops they had to jump through in the recent remix contest.

If that's true, then why don't I see permission notices on other remixes? In the AVS community, NO ONE CARES!

Yes, you are very persistant continuing to put up a rip from yaXamp,
http://classic.winamp.com/skins/deta...onentId=112519
and I continue to remove and deny it.

Even though you have said you removed the stolen parts from yaXamp from your skin, you lied and there were still a large number of parts present in all components. I don't want to see this skin anymore, even if you do succeed in removing anything even remotely resembling yaXamp. I doubt you could get it all out anyway, because basically IT WAS A STRAIGHT RIP, modified a bit to resemble what you wanted in it.

I am really getting tired of this nonsence, QUIT SUBMITTING THIS OR ANY OTHER RIPS!!!

Question my skin appeal.

I recieved an email the yesterday stating that my skin, 'San Diego Chargers', has "objectionable content." There is no nudity or adult type material on this skin. So i dont believe it falls into that catagory, only one i could think of is, cause it is a sports skin. Or if it was just a mistake, or something that I dont see let me know. Thanks

Have you tried that skin in Winamp 5 yet? Time to update it I'm afraid, otherwise it will not work.

BTW, the other (original) iPod skin works fine.

for me the only things that don't work is the display of on\off in the preferences (font isn't being used for some reason) and the brwose option doesn't work. both of them have no reason to fail except a change in std.mi that I son't know of, how can I find what is the change?

it doesn't, this is an added feature and the font problem is because my skin uses the font unlike the old one. and why does my skin have to be compatible with an unpublished beta version?

Do not publish incomplete skins; every skin should at least have the Main, Equaliser,Play List and Browser skinned, we also like the video and AVS/ML/Gen windows skinned as well, cursors are a bonus, but not essential.

Your component 'Brian Powell Music skin' is now unpublished.

We experienced problems during installation. This needs to be resolved.

I have had several people click on the exact same file from my website and it installs fine... can you give me more of an idea of what I need to do? I uploaded the file in .wsz format, and I can't resubmit because it tells me, obviously, that another component with the same name already exists. What can I do? My skin rocks.

Is that the system.eject(); bug you talked about elsewhere?, if you used my solution you should be ok to go.


Am I missing the point with this skin?

I click the MENU button, a menu slides onto screen, then nothing?, can't remove the menu, can't use any of the options on the menu, is it supposed to be like that?

Ok, I figured out your control system, man that's a tricky one to work out, given that nothing happens when you use the dial , some movement in there might have been nice.

however, you appear to have either, uploaded the same skin as before, or not fixed the problem, I still get a crash related error when trying to load files with this skin in WA5, when I try it in WA3, it still pops up the default load track dialogue, which suggest the code is the same.

/edit, in fact, just checked your code file, you are still using system.eject(); in your menu.m file.

I tried to make the jog as realistic as possible, you don't see it move in the real iPod as well.
I think I accidently posted the wrong file, now it's the right one (it should be iPod_v4.1.wal)
