Skin Of The Month - October 2009
The first skin of the month is online. In the first voting for a SOTM, 'Aranea' by bendenfield won. We have uploaded his suite to our account in order to increase his audience on his Halloween suite. Take your own look on it here. We are proud to call him the first winner of a SOTM ever. From what we heard from him, he is very happy and wants to thank all who voted for his 'Aranea' (and believe us, we stay very close to him (: ).

Skin Of The Month - November 2009
While the voting for the first SOTM has ended only a few hours ago, the current SOTM has passed the half of it's suggestions phase. There are currently only three suites/skins listed, but as we saw in the first one, the most suggestions are made in the last quarter of the suggestions time, so we have no reason to panic. Just take a look over here and maybe leave a suggestion. And always keep in mind, that you can also suggest a skin of your own. There is no need to be shy.

New Avatars
During a complete design update we have also updated the avatars of our club accounts. Besides our main account avatar, we changed the avatars for rainmeter1plz and rainmeter2plz, aswell. Our 'Rainmeter Release' button looks now even better, without any graphic quality loss any longer. Simply type : iconrainmeter1plz :: iconrainmeter2plz : or : iconrainmeter : without the spaces anywhere on devART. The following will show up when you spelled it correctly:
:iconrainmeter1plz::iconrainmeter2plz: resp. :iconrainmeter:
The best is that you do not need a premium membership to apply them to one of your deviation's information, a journal or any other text input on dA.

Subscription and new profile page design
We greatly want to thank Taichou-Henk and karmat111 for each a three month subscription making an entire subscription for the time of six months. Taichou-Henk made some really good skins for Rainmeter and karmat111 provides us on a regular base with awesome desktop screenshots. Both are one of the best Raineers we have in our club and we are glad to have them on board.
As a result, we did - as mentioned above - a complete design update on our profile page. If you have any ideas, any comment, any critique or feedback or anything else, feel free to post them. If you are a member of our forums, we would appreciate you to comment here. If you are not, post them either here or on our profile page.

Not a fan of the dark design on the club page, i mean its fine when it's just a journal, but this is the first club i saw that has almost every item on the page modified.
Also the outline (if it was intended) on the rainmeter icon looks like bad blending...

Yeah, the icon is somehow not that good rendered. Probably i will change it to a static png image for better looking at the edges.
And yes, the dark design is not very often used, but it definitly gives the first impact wich is different from other clubs. And that's why I think it is OK.
But I'd like to discuss it, and later maybe come to a conclusion that fits our both interests ;)

Thank you so far for the input :)

I have to disagree, I think the profile page looks incredible!

It's a matter of taste, many people don't like this kind of scary looking black panels. Public profiles should be as neutral as possible.
karmat111 Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2009
To each his/her own! Black is a 'neutral' colour. And possibly now that the admins can design up the page, they will have different styles every once and awhile (when they have free time!) so that everyone can enjoy the look of it.
