The only other skin remotely like Odd Amp 1 point 5 is the original Odd Amp skin, which I myself created. So, unless ripping yourself constitutes plagurism, I want my skin put back up as soon as possible.

In the future, please have your reviewers atcually read the material skinners write in their text files. In the description of Odd Amp 1 point 5 I clearly point out the fact that the skin is an updated version of my older skin. To quote myself:

"To gear up for the imminent release of Munch's Oddysee, I decided to work on a new version of my Odd Amp skin for Win Amp. The new version is absolutely packed with detail and is taking a long time to finish, so I am releasing Odd Amp 1.5, a mix between the old version and the upcoming version 2. The new main window took me about a week to finish and I'm very happy with how it turned out."

Thanks,

I have send an e-mail to the author, if that is you, please reply to the e-mail. You would be surprised how many people claim to have made a skin pixel by pixel, while all they did was take someone else's skin and rework it a bit.
In the Odd Amp case, I saw two identical skins except for the main with two different authors. This is the most common example of rips we get.
When we have 2 skins with 2 different names and e-mails as the authors, no one mentioning the other one in any readme or description, we take the oldest name to be the real author, and all other names to be rips.
In any case, to get version 1.5 republished you would have to re-upload as it is no longer in the data-base. If your claim is true, we can make it jump the publishing cue and publish it right away.

What bites is that Odd Amp 1.5 was pretty popular... it had made it to the front page of the skin selections. You're telling me that it's going to be put in again like a brand new skin? Now I'm depressed.

My skin, Blue Silver was published back in June of 2001, and the skin that people keep calling mine a rip of is "digital gEN-X z3 Edition" which was published on October 24, 2001. So some dumb ass that can't read goes and get's my skin unpublished by posting in the forums saying it's a rip. I made my skin from scratch, I have the multi-layer .psd files to prove it, and with one little post, obviously without a fair check into it, my skin is gone. Maybe if this report a rip system was a little better used, and someone actually checked to back up the claim, then someone might have seen that my skin was published 5 months before this skin I have been accused of ripping off, and my skin would still be online, like it should be, and with all 200,000 some downloads it had. That's all I have to say.

I am putting your skin back up, but I am still investigating this further.

I also enlarged my center graphic to see if there was anything going on in the stands that would qualify as "objectionable" and outside of the usual Cougar game day debauchery there was nothing my own lapsed catholic sensibilities found objectionable.

So I'm thinking that you're thinking that my skin is a "rip". Dude. I can send you all the previous .wsz files I used from my skinner.exe program (gakkkkk!!!) that will illustrate the evolution of "Cougar Love" and the other graphics files I used to put this all together so that I had something that didn't suck too badly. I did it for my alma mater you guys. I didn't steal someone else's design, though I will posit that given it's skinner origins it may bear a passing resemblance to another skin.

So there it is. I appeal to your sense that you're not total skin Nazis standing with your lightsabers and juice boxes at the portal to skindom and you'll do the right thing and re-unpublish "Cougar Love".

Would you be so kind as to clarify what exactly the problem is with them, so I can address it properly, please.

Thanks for your speedy reply.


WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SPORTS SKINS?

AOL owns Nullsoft, the company that publishes Winamp and upkeeps the winamp.com website. Recently (August 31ish, 2001) AOL corporate notified the Webmaster of winamp.com that they were very displeased by the fact that winamp.com allowed major league sport skins to be published on their website. A list of skins to be deleted was sent along with this message, as well as the instructions not to publish any more 'NBA, NHL, MLB, NFL or college team skins' on the site. We of the Skin Review Squad apologize to the authors of such skins, and suggest that you try DeviantArt,1001 Winamp Skins, or any other of the numerous sites that publish Winamp 2.xx skins.

Also, what of any other skins I published, are they still around?

If you're going to reject new team skins (presumably b/c of trademark liability), shouldn't all components containing trademarked or copyrighted material (e.g. stereo eqpt, shoes, beverages, BANDS) be removed for the same reason, or at least so that we're not under the assumption that ours will be published? That may be the definition of "grandfathered in", but it seems like a double standard in the policy. Skinners, don't take that the wrong way - I don't want anyone's skins removed... I just hate wasting hours making updates, changes and improvements, only to find out later that they can't be posted.

And it sounds like I'm not the only one...


Amen, brother.

Thanks for letting me vent - I appreciate being given the opportunity.

Could it be that AOLTW is pissed that Google has the plugin listed before any of their AOL v7 crap? It's damn funny if you ask me... when someone goes to Google for info on "Radio@AOL" and they hit "I'm Feeling Lucky" they get a Winamp plugin. MUAHHAHAHA

#1. I don't rip stuff, i'd rather do a sucky job on something and it be my own, than make something good and it be mostly someone else's work.

#2. The only possible way it could be considered a rip is if you consider using the skin template on the dev page ripping.

#3. It's no big deal, the skin sucked anyway, the next one i do, if i do a next one, will be better.

Go to your skin developer area WHERE YOU UPLOADED YOUR SKIN, wave your cursor over the EDIT link and make a note of what appears in your browser status bar, you should see a 5 or 6 digit number.

If you can't do that, provide a screen shot of the skin, attached to a post in here, and we'll try and tell you why it wasn't published.

And don't get pissed at us about this. These are Nullsoft/AOL rules. If you find a skin in the db that you think should be removed, give us a link.

Take your cartoon porn elsewhere, it's not welcome on this site, if you feel there are skins that are worse than this one already posted on the site, feel free to post a link to them, and I'll remove them as well

Good day.

You can probably get by with skimming on the buttons if you'll put a little more work into the skin. Try working on it some more and resubmitting. Just keep in mind that winamp.com is not a wallpaper site - its a skin site.

(Thank you for your politeness by the way - it was appreciated, though the reply still had to be negative. )

The skin that was pulled had had over 200 downloads in 5 days despite not being included on the main new skins page - just learning not to publish simultaneously - and had a very positive review - not mine btw. When my skins had been unpublished previously I asked what would get them through and I was told cbuttons. I went back, and in the case of this skin painted the cbuttons in by hand. Now I'm told it's necessary to put the equaliser bars back as well, and get a serve for lack of originality, which is such a subjective view in this case, as there are no previous treatments of this grab anywhere I can see, that I begin to suspect there is an issue with the subject matter. Don't care if people do have a problem with it, but would you be so kind as to let me know if this will be the case with all future skins I put up that don't include the equaliser bars, and deal with subject matter not to the particular taste of the reviewer. It honestly doesn't seem worth the hassle if that's the case.

Thank you,

Just to clarify, this means you can get away with scrapping some buttons or bars if your skin is original, but that all skinner generated skins must have all the buttons.

I don't understand why not having any EQ bars is a problem. When people see my skin they don't have to download it, that is optional. Just because i don't want to ruin the picture i used for eqmain.bmp and place EQ bars in, doesn't force someone who wants a skin with EQ bars in to download it. Why then is there a need to ban such skins from the Winamp website?

I'm just rather annoyed because this is my best skin by a mile, and it will look absolutely terrible with EQ bars in the way.

p.s. I apologize if this question has already been answered, but i had a quick look and couldn't see a clear reason.

Point taken, and i can see that you are already pissed with my stupid question. But: many people don't even use the eq, and simply leave it on the default settings, since it makes the sound v.tinny. So i would argue with the un-usable point, but if admin want all skins to be as complete as possible than i'll have to concede defeat.

I would just prefer that such skins were allowed on the site, given a poor completeness rating, and then left to the public to decide. If they think the skin is un-usable than they won't download it, and you would be vindicated. I can see the reason for censorship, but i think that in this case it is not necessary since the content is perfectly clean.

Aha?! I published my skin "Hell" in 1999 an now someone says my skin is a rip?? I have done the skin 99% by myself, just the chrome button I took from another skin, but wrote a mail to the creator and asked wether I can use it...so there was no problem!!!
Please show me the skin from where I should have taken anything to use it for my own skin!! There is none I think, there is just one possibility, the other skin is a rip of mine!! Point!!

So please publish my skin again and everything is fine!
I did not get the ID in my mail so I'm not able to tell you, should I publish my skin again by myself?

you'll either have to do me the favor of elucidating as to the nature of the problem... or explain what 'Installation' is taking place as these are simple .zip files with little to 'Install.' I can only assume that you mean the way your page drops it's .wsz files right in my bla\bla\Winamp directory which is rather rude actually. I just like the option of telling the transfer device where to stick it

Anyway... let me know what you can suggest I do to make these two skins publishable... and please let me know before hand whether there are any other reasons this won't get published.

Thank you...

So in short, you ripped the base skin, did a sucky job mangling it, did not even finish that, and submitted it as your own.

I like skins made with a skinning program a lot better.

I want to tell the Winamp Staff that the RIP system seems not to work very well, or perhaps they don' t check with a minimum precaution, because ALL my skins (NHL skins - section Sports), i've made since 2 long years, have been deleted a few days ago (exactly the 27/04)! Why? I don' t know, but i' m very angry, because it took me a lot of time to do them, and of course because it was nice to see that a lots of people liked them and downloaded them (more than 300.000 for one of the skins), Two of them were in the first page of the Sports section since they were published!
So what you would tell me? So, i'ts a good reason to delete the address of winamp.com in my favorites but i won' t do that, because i want to know who told you that they are rip...I don' t know if someone of winamp can answer me, but it would be very appreciated.
Because i've done them, obviously, i' ve got hundreds of ways to prove that! (i've still got the image files in .psd (photoshop) i' ve got a website in french about the NHL (since 2 years) where all my works are (skins, wallpapers...):

here is the adress of the page where my skins can be downloaded:

http://nhlfr.free.fr/index.php3?cont...ypeskin=toutes

what can i say more? the name of my skins are:
'NHL Colorado Avalanche Skin'
'The NHL Toronto Maple Leafs Skin'
'The Absolute Red Wings Skin'
'The NHL Pittsburgh Skin'
'The NHL Buffalo Sabres Skin'
'The Absolute Dallas Stars Skin'
'NHL Saint Louis Blues Skin'

what more? the skin 'Canada Ice Hockey Team Skin' has not even been published...perhaps it' s a also a RIP!!!!

hope someone will answer me soon

Recently (August 31ish, 2001) AOL corporate notified the Webmaster of winamp.com that they were very displeased by the fact that winamp.com allowed major league sport skins to be published on their website. A list of skins to be deleted was sent along with this message, as well as the instructions not to publish any more 'NBA, NHL, MLB, NFL or college team skins' on the site.

Then, if i speak about the soft like Photoshop or Paint Shop pro, or Bryce 3D etc...that are used to make skins, you know just like me that most of the skinners don' t have the right to use them, because they don' t have the original version but a copy, and the copyright...but that's like that.
Well, to finish with it, the last skin i've sent was about the Canada Ice Hockey Team, which is not NHL or anything like that, but i received the same message from you...And i've seen another Canada skin so i don' t understand...

Hope i don' t bother you, but it's important to know exactly how it works.
thanks again and keep me posted please

So you can publish this one?
How can i get the CID number? i tried to look in my mail box, but found nothing about this number...perhaps i should publish the canada skin again (but i' m sad that it will only be published in 4-6 weeks...)

i' m impatient and very excited right now! (the hockey and winamp fans will appreciate this skin for sure...(hmmm...thinking now, not the american fans! )

I don't understand. How is the skin I posted a "rip?" I did not make the skin myself; an artist at Westwood Studios made it, and I posted it for him. I wrote in the description that he deserved credit for it, not me. He even mailed me, thanking me, around June of this year. However, I checked the skins database, and it does not appear the original author ever posted the skin himself. Can someone please explain to me how my skin is a "rip?" Also, I cannot give a component ID, as my component has been deleted and thus is no longer listed in the "my skins" section.

Skinner generated skins that lack this functionality are being removed from the site.

Your skin isn't deleted from the database, just unpublished, add some EQ bars, and resubmit it, and it should be ok.

Sorry if you think this is harsh, but it's come from on high, skinner.exe stuff must be fully functional.

And yes, I know you seem to have done a lot of work removing skinner elements, but there are still a lot left.

One last question - could you rename the plugin to 'Pender' instead of 'new Pender' so I don't have to republish all over again just for a name?

Thanks for everything.

In case you dont know how to find out the Component ID, just go to your submission page, find the skin where its listed as unpublished, hold your mouse cursor over the edit or delete link and look in the status bar of your browser. At the end of the link there should be 5 or 6 numbers. Thats the component id.

But there are a LOT of windows classic styled skins all look the same.

I understand that there were a lot, I actually came looking for one (hence the description) and realized that none of them had the attention to detail that I was looking for.

So I left, created one from scratch, and submitted it for the hell of it, because I was proud of it. I'm almost offended at the thought of lumping the weeks of attention to detail that I put into it in with the rest of the crap I saw throughout the category.

Iono, in the big picture, it really doesn't matter, but I was proud of the work I put in and wanted other people to appreciate the difference.

Then after waiting for months, it comes back as "a duplicate".

I'd still like to know why something like this gets accepted:

http://www.winamp.com/skins/detail.j...mponentId=1697

When something like mine, that I spent upwards of three weeks on, hand-tooling from scratch gets kicked back. Should I have just opened a skinner and loaded a jpeg? Would it be accepted then? That kind of effortless nonsense draws 67,000 downloads for Winamp.com, yet you think mine is somehow not good enough to accept...

Sorry for any problems this has caused.

Please visit http://www.winamp.com and resubmit your updated component.
If you have any qualms, Please visit the forum
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?threadid=55236, and state your
case.

It doesn't state what is wrong with the skin nor does it state that it's a rip (which is the link it gave me) If I'm being accused of ripping someones skin I ask you prove it to me. I created this from scratch. I spent HOURS looking at skins and found nothing that resembled mine. You have no Adcom skis on your site at all (at least not that I could find) I ask that you reconsider your decision or let me know what the problem is with the skin

Thanks

Ok, the problem is that the main and eqmain.bmp dont show. It just comes up with the base skin. The files seem to be damaged somehow.

This didn't however, tell me what the probems with my skins were. I got it for four different skins submitted (It's probably something I did wrong for all of them, is my guess, as none of them are rips). Two of my skins that I submitted at the exact same time, however, did get put on the site with no problem.

The fact that it pointed me to this forum somewhat confuses me as the first message states this is for skins identified as rips, not skins that have some sort of technical problem.

If so, post one of your skins here so we can see if anything's wrong.

I am unable to look at your skins due to a data-base problem, but will do so later in the week when the problem fixes itself.
