RFC: Skin Preferences Standardization
Since a lot of skins are now adding specialized preferences, I think it might be a good idea if the skinning community uses a more or less standard UI for them. I think somewhere in the forum or #NS I saw a message about having them inside the actual Winamp preference window, but we don't have the option today. SO, here's my RFC (Request For Comments):
1. All skin preferences MUST be contained inside a single standardframe windows.
2. Any skin pref MAY be accessed in any other way a skinner chooses (that is, in addition to #1). Example: Scroll song ticker in skins preference window and on a right-click menu on the ticker itself.
3. If a skin has many many options, preferences may be organized in tabsheets or via a tree or list, but #1 MUST be respected.
Please consider this and comment on it. I will not dictate (and could not) how it will evolve, if at all. Let's just brainstorm and see what we come up with.
I was away for a while.
But I'm feeling much better now.
