best of 2007

Nunch says:

does anyone else think it would be fun to have a top of 2007 for customize? Like a poll for different sections, like screenshots, wallpapers, themes, etc? Or nominate and then vote?
Just throwing it out there. I don't know how do-able that is.

I don't think we could get something really organized in two weeks, it seems that's not our strong suit. But I do think it'd be a fun idea, tops of the year are always good.

We should have a custo "awards" ceremony, with awards like best shot, biggest nuisance (we all know who would win that), best ls, etc., culminating in the most prestigious award: member of the year, for all the contributions they've done for the goodness of the site.

Like the Oscars of customizing...

knowing our speed (e.g. turtle-ish), two weeks seems too short a time. but yieah, love this idea. custo oscars. yarr!!

maybe have everyone submit their top 3 faves in each category, tally those up, then reveal the top 3 (5?, 10?) winners in each category throughout an all-night vigil.

what akka said,
and akka's stuff is tip top
I was impressed by that caliban shot that akka posted
and the 'rubric' shot by pon_ that akka also posted really caught my eye

gsm suite wins everything... also, this new sandwich theme looks pretty snazzy, but it was released just days after I got an iMac

WRONG. It's still in its infancy, and gaia has way more skins and themes to accompany it. Not to mention the fact that it was a community effort. When I described it as "best" I didnt mean only in the sense of looks, I also meant in how many people got involved and the overall success there was in incorporating all of the skins and getting everyone (mostly) to contribute and really get involved in such a big project. In that respect, its no contest.

plain-doh says:

OK, what I think is that both gaia and sandwich were not as great as I expected. You guys are just going mainstream with what everyone else thinks is cool, but some, in their hearts, don't like it that much. They've been forced to love something they don't love. How can this be true? Everyone thinks gaia and sandwich are the sexiest things ever, but I don't. Try including the "indie" suites, will you?

uhh plain-doh... why not just suggest categories for best indie suite, and best "company" suite?

I'm pretty certain all works listed here are artistic creations outside the commercial mainstream, without the support of a major record label, major movie studio, or other source of a large budget. Everyone who posts here does it for the joy of sharing their creations with the community.

7 catagories for '07

best customizer (new, improved, overall, etc.)
best screenshot (all OS's.)
best wallpaper (style, individual, etc.)
best visual style/suite (all OS's.)
best audio player skin (winamp, real, wmp, etc.)
best shell theme (litestep, bb, fluxbox, etc.)
best icons (all OS's)

Pick one favorite from each catagory so when you post, it will only be 7 from each person and go from there, just my take on this.

Otherwise there would have to be about 30 catagories if you're gonna break them down like you did, Nunch

plain-doh says:

Never mind... never mind any of my metaphors ever.

And my list:

Best ss
Best vs
Best ls
Best bb
Best wp (can also be a pack)
Best suite (includes group projects, such as TDoCC)
Best icons
Best player skin (Winamp, fb2k, etc.)
Best widget (Samurize, Rainlendar, etc.)
Best wb (only if someone cares)
Best miscellaneous (the best of the rest)

Best customizer
Most improved
Best new customizer
Biggest asshole
Biggest retard
Favorite member (not just based on their skill, but mainly on how friendly and sociable they are)

Any of these can have runners-up being honored in the awards, if during the voting someone else gets a substantial non-winning number of votes.

akka says:

starting to think it's a bad idea in the first place, it's only going to breed negativity. i don't think there's anything wrong with showcasing a couple of your favorites for the year, but custo shouldn't be competitive.

I agree with akka.

justaguy1 says:

custo is competitive, lol. Otherwise, there wouldnt be such options as love and likes, or popular. If its not to be competitive then there should only be comments and nothing that shows what people like the most. On that note, I think that the popular for each section tells the winners already, so its really no need for this, no matter the year.

Can we at least vote on the people awards?

yeah, i think akka is right.

and not only that, but for some of those categories, it's just way too predictable. at least, that's what i think..

Best of is apparently not the best idea. But a our personal favorites of the year type of thing looks like it'd work out great.

I will have to dig through my favorites and post some. But I think another great suite to mention would be Elfin2, a lot of people used it.

Also: thanks for the mention(s) guys. :P

Phew, I'll do wallpapers and other stuff later -- I hope none of this is from '06 I went from memory and didn't check them all.
