    not sure if you guys think this is a good idea or not hence the Q?? here

    as the skin forum is very full of outter date and unsupported skins, i was thinking of adding Thunders skins list to the file, but not only that, skin reviews.

    now the reviews can be done by a user of the skin or even the skin aurthor, but my feeling is to get a true review of the skin, aurthors will always praise thier own skins (not a bad thing) but for a newbie, who has inchy feet will dive straight in, not knowning what he/she is in for. i'm not after a 100 line SA , just a short review someing up your thoughts of the skin in Q??

    if any1 wants to do a review they can pm it to me and i will add it , no names will be used, so allows the freedom of the review.

    Personally, I would stay FAR away from addng any sort of skin information. There are so many skins, and if you mention one, you would have to mention ALL of them to be politically correct.

    I would simply stick to the RR basics, and up to how to install / point to, a new skin and leave it at that.

    If you want to, you could always include a link to the most used skins.... but even in doing that, you could be ignoring other skins that deserve mention.

    I personally feel that the documentation should be covering Only RR and getting the basics set up and working.

    noted, for the most it will be about setting up and etc of RR, with a few basic sections for other things, i was going to point to the skin list , but as you say there are other skins not listed, so i will point to the skin thread only .

    From a newbies perspective, this would be a great help. Just installed RR last night, have previously spent countless hours reading threads, .txt help files in skins, searching and reading tons of material, even with search, just to find basic answers. Everything is all over the place, and a lot of links don't work, etc... Very frustrating for some of the more experienced users I see on the board, imagine how a newbie feels. From all the front ends I have researched, I think RR has a lot of potential to make a big jump with the efforts going on to try and standardize things, and keep the core untouched, splitting out features to plugins, etc...
    The user participation and customizations really drew me to RR, but trying to find all the right info and learn everything is really overwhelming. I see a lot posts and ideas that die out, because it is time consuming and life gets in the way. I would be the first to get in line and Paypal someone a couple hundred bucks to provide me a skin that works with a lot of the features/ideas I've seen here, but I'd probably miss out on the experience of doing a lot of it, or most of it, or at least some of it myself... kind of like working on my car, a real love/hate relationship.

    Proper spelling and grammar. No offence but it doesn't look like English is for you and maybe you should have someone else write it up. I couldn't understand half of what you wrote with all the contractions, missing letters, punctuation and blatant abbreviations.

    Maybe...just maybe If you had ANY idea what handicap he is talking about, you would be saying WOW, and understanding how the issues you are bringing up come into play...

    It may not be 100 proper, but at least he is willing to put in the enormous time & effort to continue the previous work that was started long ago....and again, on top of having the handicap...

    Exactly

    If you could only imagine the EXTRA time and effort he is taking for him to be even be able to put this together.......


    It may seem simple to write a help document for RR, but it is not in any way. There is so much information to gather, sort through organize that it is mind blowing. There are so many things to document from skins, to flash and skins, commands, installation, plugins, gestures, voice recognition setup, transparencies, paths and files, the skin editor, FAQ's, ExecTbl.ini, rr.ini and skin.ini commands and differences.....and the list goes on and on.....

    thankyou John for that great long list of subjects lol....
    this is why i started this thread so all you guys can say what you want from a full rr help file but as no one hows even posted , i have to use my own past pit falls that i came across while starting out with RR in the 1st place , and you try to remember that far back , i've been around for somtime now , and i have even put my own skin together as well, so yes my spelling in posts etc is very mmmm bad but there is a reason for this.

    thanks to the orignal autor of the old rr help alot has been covered but is outter date, thats what i'm doing at the moment , as for the rest well either mention what you want from it , or you will have to wait till im done and then add to it or moan which ever.
