MAKE IT MY-NITSUA CONTEST: UPDATE: CONTEST ON HOLD AS OF JUNE 18TH UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE Please Register or Log in to view images Okay guys, one of the coolest things about the iPhone/iPod Touch community is its users' strive to obtain the most customized and personalized iDevices. Threads like "POST YOUR SPRINGBOARDS" and such just goes to show how much we try to "one-up" one another. It allows us to show creativity and innovation in something simple as our phones/iPods. Another cool aspect to this is how people try and modify existing winterboards. Whether it is simply compounding multiple winterboards and widgets together, to creating their own "iNAV" by replacing graphics and changing colors. With that said, I'm proud to announce the MAKE MY-NITSUA contest. I have seen several attempts in different forums to modify "iNitsua" but not very many due to 2.0.x's lack of customizable graphics without having to make one from scratch. I have uploaded the following PSD templates to customize icons and wallpaper overlays for both landscape AND portrait versions of "iNitsua". I would like to see what your creative minds can come up with in regards to this theme. RULES - Must be screenshots from your iDevice (when you post them, please rotate them first if they are landscape) - Submissions must be in by July 10th 10 PM PST - You can customize any aspect of "iNitsua". - You are NOT required to use original graphics, but maintain original format - Need to show ALL 9 pages. Required: ---- 3 favorite icons on Page0-4 ---- Main icon on Page0-4 ---- At least 6 icons on Page5-8 ---- You can choose what 5 springjump categories you'd like to choose, whether for iPhone or iPod Touch Optional: ---- App Store/iTunes-style icons are optional (the bottom-right icons in the original theme) ---- Landscape statusbar is optional ---- Lockscreen is also optional, remember...has to be a screenshot ---- It's your choice whether to make a portrait or landscape mod, whatever you think you give you the most votes. Voters will not be asked which theme they are most likely to download and use, but which one is the best overall. Submissions are encouraged to be posted here in this thread. Post your submissions for advice as to what direction you should take your mod to. FINAL Submissions are to be sent to iNitsua.Contest@gmail.com - Remember to include all 9 images - Include the name of your "mod" - Include your forum name and what forum you are from - You are allowed ONE "oops, I want to change something, let me resend it".

Show your ideas and share, but don't share too much that your competitors will have the opportunity to steal one of your ideas. My advice to you is to show up to 70% of what you have going for you, but keep 30% secret to knock competition out of the water! Remember, you ARE representing your individual forum community. Integrating your forum into your theme may help you in the votes - but it can also hurt you as your submission will be voted for not only in your given community, but the others as well. When submissions go up, I will not put the names or the forum names next to submissions as to give it some sense of anonymity. But competition breeds excellence, so competing ideas among forums may push others to the limit and come out with something great. When I was making "iNitsua", I was carefully watching other themes as well as wanted to make sure I didn't carry their same flaws if they had any. And finally, remember the concept of "iNitsua". "iNitsua" has the graphically pleasing aspects of iNAV themes with the simplicity and speed of normal spring/winterboard themes. Incorporate this into the heart of your "mod". THE CONTEST BEGINS NOW. GOOD LUCK TO THE FOLLOWING CONTENDING COMMUNITIES... - Modmyi community - iPod Touch Fans community - MacCiti community - ZodTTD.com community If you are part of an iPhone/iPod Touch community that may enjoy this contest, let me know asap.
