Which are your 3 favourite?

This thread is in danger of looking like such a narcissistic pimpfest that I'm almost too embarassed to post it. However, I'm genuinely interested in the results, which is why I'm doing it.

In LuigiHann's recent thread about his sig, I was quite surprised to see that the skins which turned out to be popular were not always the ones that I would have expected to be. It made me quite curious as to which of my skins people like.

So, please humour me and pick the 3 that you think are the best. I don't expect everyone to remember them all, let alone to know them all, so here are some mini-screenshots to jog your memory if you've seen them before. The actual skins are here if need be.

Ok, thanks Mr Jones

Yeah, there were a few other ones, though I didn't want to include every single to retain some kind of 'brevity'. I actually had the other Aphex Twin ("Windowlicker") one there though - but at the last moment I replaced it with the SHAG skin, which I had accidentally forgotten to include.

But I even already uploaded a screenshot for Windowlicker :

Zima, Shag and Calvin & Hobbes. Especially Zima

Ok, thanks to everyone who voted.

Hmm, I didn't really know which skin would come in at #1, but I didn't think the SHAG skin would be it. Though, even though I tend to not think about it much since it's now so old, I think I'd definitely have to agree that it's one of best skins, and definitely my most 'fun' one

I certainly was (nicely) surprised to see Selective Ambience get as many votes as it did.

I'm glad a couple of people voted for TemplateMonster.com (the 3rd person was me ). It got quite a neutral and quiet reception on the skin sites, yet of all of my skins, it's my favourite skin to use.

I'm glad several people chose Kopernik, though I'm so sick of seeing it at the moment that I probably won't know how much I truly like it myself till after I make another skin

T3 was a skin that I think was a little out of reach of my graphics skills back then (and sitll is, actually), so while I really like some parts of it, some parts weren't pulled off as well as I'd wished. So it's nice to see that it got a few votes anyhow.

I like several of your skins but Kopernik is my favorite. The skin is easy to use and beautiful to look at. It is the skin I am using at the moment.

I love your shag and T3 skins. Didn't you win a handycam or something with the T3 one?

My top three list of Classic skins are:
1. FLSkin (Fruity Loops theme for Winamp)
2. Winamp5 Classified
3. SteamAmp

The reasons?
They are all well-designed, no glitches and they just look professional.
