That one has been published, must've been a database error, otherwise you would have received the additional email.

It was mainly made with a skinner tool, that's why it is not with the newest skins, and no, do not re-publish.

I've told him, but he ddin't reply to my email and just posted that approval.
BTW, to republish, do I have to "update" it, or add it as a new skin?

This is the appeal thread, not "when is my skin going to be published thread. If it's less than 2 months since you uploaded, just wait it out.

Sakura Lite is unpublished because it doesnt have an eq... the skin was never designed to have an eq and since the skin its self is now a dead project i just wanna get finnished... there isnt going to be an eq... i dont see why i NEED an eq since everything else needed is there

It presents us with a problem, I was gonna message you about this tonight, but you beat me to it.

We layed down a minimum spec some time ago to improve the quality of the skins in the database, this spec was agreed by the powers that be, they kind of think that the EQ is an integral part of the player and really should be included, either as a seperate window, or built into some other part of the skin..

See, now if we let sakura lite on, then we have to start letting others with no eq on as well, can't have one rule for one, and one for another.

Couldn't you piece together a simple EQ as a seperate window?, you have a simple plain standard frame layout, wouldn't take long to piece together a basic EQ for it.

I've spoken with other reviewers, and they agree, we can't go bending rules for one, or everyone would be lining up to bend them,and we would then end up with a crappy half baked skin database.

ok then.... winamp.com doesnt want it, i can find much better places to put it..

also.. how can you say if a skin is compleat or not? winamp3 skins are freeform, thus are compleat when the designer says they are.. you should judge on the quality of the skin not its content

At the end of the day, it's still a skin for a media player, and the owners of this site want the skin on it to reflect that and be as functional as possible, and for some reason, they seem to think the EQ is a integral part of the media player experience, hence why we look for it in any skins that are published.

The freefrom argument dosn't hold when you talking about minimum standards, if that was the case, I'd submit my test area skin that is a 300x300 black square with a single play/pause button in the middle of it.

Dude, look at the WA3 skin database, there are some pretty slack crappy skins in there already, dozens in fact, but they do come up to the minimum standard required.

bottom line is, it's a media player interface, site owners want a minimum specification, this includes an EQ, control buttons etc etc, so that's what we work to.

If it makes you feel any better, I have skins also that have no EQ in them, simply because I didn't design one for them,but I aint submitting them here, if I did, then I'd have to build an EQ in as well.

If we make one exception, then we have to make an exception for everyone, there is no favours around here, we simply tow the guidelines given to us

Blimey, in the length of time we have spent debating this, you could have made a dozen EQ windows for it by now, hell you could even slightly adapt your thinger window to have a mini EQ on it, the thinger isn't a required function, surely you could simply add 10 bars and a preamp into there, dosn't have to be a huge EQ, just useable.

O A SCin/Old Army Supply Co. Skin

A skin I designed was removed for being a duplicate of itself.

Because...

I had classified the skin as a University and Website skin but the skin was not posted as a University skin, so I updated the classification, the skin disappeared as is your policy while things are updated (which shouldn't have had to hapen anyway). It never came back up again, and after a few days I received an e-mail that "There is a problem with our database, please resubmit your skin."

So I did, the exact skin that had originally been approved, and now visitors to the skin which has been widely talked about among students here see that the skin has been removed. Making me look like I really know what I'm doing and it's certainly making the company it was built for look stellar.

I had to unpublish a couple of skins last night that did not have a screenshot, this is an ongoing db problem that hopefully will be fixed soon. Please re-upload your screenshot and re-submit.

ok, I posted a skin called "chemical reaction green" on the account "TheMann"

although this skin was based off of another winamp skin, I have done so much work to it that it is quite different in look and function.

Attempts at contacting the original author for his approval have failed.
not only does their web site not come up, but I have not gotten a reply from an e-mail I sent.

I believe that it is also only fair that my skin get posted, as I have done ALOT of work on this skin, and it is drastically different than the original.

thanks,
TheMann

Its a Windows Media Player skin! both skins are taken from WMP so they would look the same!

though there are big diffrences in both. you cannot delete it just cause you thought they looked alike

The original WMP skin

Yes, I can. Next.

You have two nearly identical WA3 skins, combine the two instead of publishing them seperatly.

alialo

Check your skin on your upload page, if both large and small screenshots are present, just re-submit. If they are not there, re-upload.

The structure of the graphics layers is very different on both skins, as are much of the base graphics. Combining them into one skin would involve a lot more than just merging a few color schemes.

Try to do a skin that has not been done already.

re-submit, we'll let it stand.

Screenshot are generated automatically, if it is missing it is a database problem. However it can not be fixed from this end. Resubmit your skin, please.
