time for comments and suggestions...... (and don't forget... what u read is only mho...)

@ saraamir.... very good theme my friend!!!!!!! u took advantage of all the feedback u got and everything is in place!!! using a contrasted bottom softkey is a nice touch but u have to take care the landscape mode text there which has been left white and causes readability problems...

@ BB.... what can i say?... excellent softkeys, everything harmonically binded together.... this purple feels a bit strange though...

@ tongi.... i didn't like the red text to much..... but then again a "tongi" theme without beeing colorful is not a "tongi" theme.... laugh.gif : lol:

@ asad..... nice asad..... u can c that your music section needs work.....

@ temptation.... awesome theme my friend!!!!!! the borders in the highlights was a nice touch... need a bit work though imho... also i think it's time (perhaps) to try some new digi clock (just a suggestion.... it doesn't affect my voting...)

@ handikap.... very good hakan!!!!!!!!! u also took advantage of the feedback u have got!!!!!!!! imho u could have made the text a bit darker to create a more intense contrast (but this is a matter of taste.....). just 2 suggestions to make your themes even better... the first one i have already proposed in earlier STC and i repeat it here.... try to work with your walls in order not to be "stretched" in landscape mode (c screen) and second one.... if your highlights are .svg try to fix this....


doing these 2 things your themes will be technically perfect mate!!!!!!!!

@ rafique..... everything is in place, but still something is missing my friend... a small readability issue in your menu screens....

@ krish... very good krish!!!!!!!!! told u everything in forum... i like it very much

@ gemini..... lately u have used us to awesome themes Sue!!!!!!!!! i know that u wanted to use matching icons, but they r all the same.....

@ swt capri...... awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@ alamin.... u managed to transform a "yellow to be" theme in orange..... didn't like it that much (u could have lighten the yellow to achieve readability if that was the reason....) technically seems a good theme!!!!!!

@ atik.... nice wall, but readability problems with the green text mate...

@ ankur.... told u everything in the forum mate!!!!!! can't wait your nest one....

@ Sam.... nothing to say Sam!!!!!!!!!! excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!

@ findgirl...... for starter u have done an awesome work Sonia!!!!!!!! using only black and white is very difficult in s6o themes..... well done.... can't wait to c a colored theme from u!!!!!!

@ chetancx.... nice yellow theme. nice touch the animated highlight, stll u need more work in this....

@ primavera..... laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

Nice experiment with the black and white – why not? „Fading“ softkeys are a nice idea, icon set matches quite well for that kind of theme. Can't test that on a phone but as I can judge from the screenshot, usability seems to be ok. One of your first attempts with Series 60 5th Edition if I read correctly - good start.

temptation213
I recommend saving your screenshots in .png format instead of .jpgs to achieve a better image quality – I was positively surprised when I tested your theme on the phone, it looks much better on the cell than the blurry screenshot suggests -way to go. Elements are well executed and look lively and pleasant; they go well together with the background image; legibility is given in all menues as far as I can see; some icons look a bit strange – I'm not sure if they're from one and the same icon set (respectively, some icons are colour-changed while most other icons are not); I would stick to one set to make the theme look consistent – on the other hand, I can imagine how difficult it must be for an S60 themer to find a REALLY complete set that covers each and every function.

primavera77
Surprise this week - another black and white theme, this time more on the black side.
Nice experiment with the white „drop shadow“ behind the calculator pane/calculator buttons/call buttons/alphanumeric keypad buttons. I wouldn't have mixed horizontal and vertical gradients in the latter to achieve a more consistent look, but in the end, that's personal taste. Icon set and analogue clock style matches wallpaper illustration quite good.

sam1374
Synergy effect: everytime I look at this theme, I smell apples. The theme in which the individual parts imho are best synchronized. „Sweet“, very harmonic colour scheme, „soft“, rounded scrollbars, „soft“, rounded Moncc icons, clock with „soft“, rounded hands... :-) And neatly executed. Clever visual extra touch: the wood texture softkeys.

krish_nank
I tested this on my phone and I can see the great effort you put in creating a functional, harmonic and complete theme. In fact it's one of the most complete themes I've seen in the last few months. You did a good job in softening the background pictures to ensure good text readability in all submenues. Nice gradients on all forms and highlights, icons match fine. Surely a theme to keep on the phone for longer, way to go.
Mini hint: In Carbide.ui, try adding a thumbnail picture of your theme (about 60x50 px) in „General > Thumbnails“, so users can see a nice preview pic in their themes list on their Series 40 phones. (Thumbnail images can't be imported via right-click and „Select File“. Instead you have to save it as a .gif to your hard drive, then Strg+C it to your clipboard and right-click „Paste“ it directly into Carbide.ui)

Alamin007
Nice softkeys and highlights with pleasant colours, also good you softened the background images in the submenues for better text legibility – you should have done that also for the calendar backgrounds - as it is now, the numbers are hard to read. Icons are nice but a imho too small – should be bigger for a better user experience. You forgot to skin the selected and unselected forms – think of them next time as they add much to your theme

Saraamir
I tried this on an S60 FP1 phone, looks quite good with that easy-on-the-eye-colour scheme, all texts are easily legible in all submenues. White/greyish softkey bar makes a nice contrast to the maroon background and is imho a good visual connection to the white icon set. One theme to keep on the phone, too.

STC 38 was an awesome week! wow.gif wow.gif wow.gif

17 entries, a lot a lot of superb themes, all of you (whether participants or non-participants) were very engaging & helping each other out. I am beginning to believe we are a little bit more like a family now. It's a pretty small competition compare to others but who cares, I hope you have had a great time, learned new stuff & had plenty of fun.

So here comes the icing on the cake. Who make it to the podium? Read on!
