    Here you go, guys. The top 14 nominees from the previous thread. Thanks so much to all who participated. Now go vote your little hearts out! [​IMG]

    Oh, and since I was a day or two late with the creation of this thread, I also took the liberty of making a collection of every skin that's currently being voted on. That's every version/color of Simply Vista/Duotone/Plasma, R4PSP, every iteration of kiruyama's original skin, and everything else that you can currently vote on.

    Problem is, I have no way of hosting files, and I have a great disdain for sites like megaupload and rapid share. Would anybody be able to host this? The folder is a little bit over 30 megs, unzipped. PM me if you can host it for a while. Thanks!

    Wow, a ton of great skins here!

    I had to go with .TakaM's Wii Clouds, however. I'm a proud owner of a Wii myself and it just seems to click as an R4 skin. It's crisp, clean, and omfg, it matches my Wii. The calming clouds, sleek Wii channel style, and throwback to Mario's glory days are a much appreciated bonus [​IMG]

    I voted for the Simply Vista Pack. It seems flashy and simple at the same time. Plus, it reproduces the Vista interface faithfully enough that I can convince some of my dumber friends that I've got the newest version of Vista DS installed.

    Simply Vista Pack is the best here, although these skins all look good. I love how the pictures are clear, and they look extremely nice at max brightness. I put all 7 or was it 8 on the r4 monthly skin, so i can see new ones every month. Love how the pictures looks.

    Far more people seemed interested in the nominations thread than this one. I guess I should have started this in the R4 area instead of the polls one. Oh well, live and learn.

    Well, the voting on this thread has gone on for a little over a month now, and it looks like we have our winners.

    1st place - DS Menu by Akotan

    [​IMG]

    2nd place - Wii Clouds by .TakaM

    [​IMG]

    3rd place - Simply Vista by GCTonyHawk7

    [​IMG]

    Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to everybody who participated. But of course, the real winners are all of us that got a DS full of quality skins out of this process. Hoo-ray!

    Do you guys think that this is something that you might want to see again in the future? The R4 and DS Simply keep getting firmware updates that make the skins need little tweaks here and there. For example, lots of people seem to be adding a "no cheat found" icon into their skins, as well as frames for the GBA screen.

    Maybe 'round the beginning of June we can have another go at this. [​IMG]
