Sounds great guys (although hugely ambitious)
If you like, I'd be glad to help out with things. Particularly I could help out with website (for project, task and people management) and generally managing the people of the project (doing the boring keeping track of things). I'm also not too bad at photoshop and creating assets, either. Let me know, contact information is in profile.

Hi Grrowl....thanks every so much for your kind offer of help. I will get your name on the list, and we can talk more after the 15th, which is the deadline set for getting a list together.
if you are as hot on the admin side as you imply, then we might become best mates!!!

If the list isn't full yet please add me. I can do a little of everything (not nearly as qualified as JM, Mac or Jezz). Photoshop and graphics not being my high point but I know enough to get what I need done. It just takes me longer.
I already have the home page and SHOWCASE view started for 16x9 (if that will help any). Until this project kicks off I am going to continue what I started if not just for practice

id like to change the way the home page works and operates in concept I think in many ways its a little outdated... eg xbox 360 doesnt have a home, anyway if the project kicks off ill discuss stuff with who ever about revamp of interface design (the look being fluid) but dont want to design it around what every other skin is (eg pm3). If you have the concept and and the graphics base a skin wont take to long to put together (100s of hours) unless its massively complexed animation wise like MC360, I take my hat off to the amount of time that would have taken to get correct (1000plus hours Id guess)
Would be great to have the PSD from fluid and the design onboard to help with Graphic Design

^ BritneysPAIRS, although I am crazy in love with fluid, many things about that interface would be inappropriate for this skin, mostly all the cover art. An entry-level, accessable skin shouldn't have to depend on either the user having put the effort into downloading all the cover art or have their xbox connected to the internet.

Well I've filled the admin role on a few collaborative projects now, so i'm starting to get used to it
Looking forward to an IRC channel or the like as soon as one is set up.
- BritneysPAIRS - 2007-10-08 10:49
I agree but I have some ideas about that as well
- MikeBeecham - 2007-10-08 12:25
Good to see that collaboriation is beginning to take place...let's see if we can get like-minded individuals working together.
We have the 15th October down at the target date to get a list of people together. If you're still umming and ahhing, then please come talk to me...I'm sure that we can clarify what you could or couldn't do!

Reporting for duty, don't have any code or design skills but will translate the skin into Dutch when it's finished.
I like the idea of creating a new, fresh, revolutionary skin!

Translation is automated if skinned correctly Bigfoot87
