For me it started back in March... I was looking for some visual styles and then I came upon this place. This place looked nicer and easier to use (in fact it was about a week after the site was relaunched), and I've been here since.
I know this website since I was 16... That time, I´ve been here to find some Windows Media Player skins, as an anonymous. I came back in April to present my works on Winamp skinning and more, downloading XP themes and meeting new people.
I was looking for things that didn't outright suck. I was much impressed with this site as compared to the others that I surfed (deviantart, wincustomize, crystalxp.net, et cetera). Plus, I was completely sick of the unoriginal Vista/Longhorn/Mac skins floating around. Anyways, stayed an anonymous for a year, then signed up, tho I am still mostly an anonymous. I love this site.
i had seen it way back from a link from deskmod, basically sonique (once the best media player) was the main reason I ended up there, but it wasn't until I spent time on WinT's site and forum, as that gradually became less updated I spent more time here
a friend got my into using winamp instead of windows media player in ninth grade, about year 2000. i would spend hours at winamp.com downloading skins. then that friend told me about custo, and how it had skins that couldn't be found on winamp.com. i joined up the next year under a different account and have been here ever since.
a link from someone at wincustomize i believe.i saw a screenshot from vsm and i was hooked.When you really,and i mean really look at other sites,you soon realize the elite of customizing are here. @skry........haha, nice.
was into the deskmod.com community, it went away and i was lost... lol, anyway, along those lines i came to like customize even tho it was a bit elitist back then... was way better than DA or wincustomize imo tho. i'm basically a commentor here, not too much time to play, but still enjoy the scene
i started in march 2007. i am new. i didn't even have a clue about customizing until my brother showed it to me. then i submitted a screenshot, that looked terrible by the way, and finally figured it out. i am still not so great at customizing but i'll get it one day :)
my profile says that i've been registered here since 2001, but i don't know when i started to lurk around here. i used to hang around at skinz.org during its glory days, but i always knew of custo and came here occasionally even though i never registered back then. when skinz.org disappeared i belive i turned to deskmod, and also started to lurk more at custo. when deskmod disappeared i went custo all out.
I was watching a video tutorial on Wndows XP on the website and this site was shown on the video of customizing your theme. I need help. I still do not have a clue how to make my own login screen. I can understand why a person would "manipulate" someone elses skin out of pure frustration of being here an hour and still not FINDING how to make my own from scratch. PLEASE HELP ME SOMEBODY!! I HAVE THE IDEA FIRMLY PICTURED IN MY MIND. HELP.
