O.P. The skinning contest starts... now!
As we announced before, the skinning contest is back, and it starts today. The contest consists of two parts. You can either make a Messenger Plus! skin pack for Messenger 2011, or if you are not into the technical aspect of making a Plus! skin you can design your vision of a Messenger 2011 skin in Photoshop or Illustrator. The objective is the same in both cases. Make Messenger 2011 look great!

So what is in it for you? Prizes, and you decide what kind of prizes. Winners receive a gift card from one of the preselected online stores ranging in value from 500 up to 1250 US dollar. As a bonus everyone who submits a Messenger 2011 skin package which gets approved will receive a small mystery prize. The contest is open to Plus! users worldwide.

From today until May 15th you can submit your skin packages and skin designs to compete for the prizes. See the contest page for the full details. Have fun!

No more big master winner category?

Er, I'll email Plus! Buttons now, seeing I've tried without success (10+ times) to upload it.

Time to start skinning half way through exams :D

Edit: Also, one person cannot win more than one of the prizes?

Great, hope to see nice skins hit the database :D

Just one question:

code:
Skins are not allowed to hide Messenger's advertisements (at the bottom of the contacts list and the conversation windows).

that means not even .reg files?

The rules with regards to ads are the same as when you submit a skin to the database pretty much. Just obviously make sure that your skins do take into account that an ad should be there.

I still remember my skin containing 70 options and not a single bug not winning in the functionality category in the 1st contest.

:( Maybe you'll win this time.... don't give up....

But note that having massive set of options is not always the same as 'functionality'. On the contrary, quite often less is more...
