The End

by fate0000 on July 08, 2014

Its been a hell of a run and my pleasure to host our community for the past five years. Pixelfuckers was created as a place where our community could thrive and have control over after being neglected at our original home, Customize.org. We simply made a decision that we would go elsewhere and so this virtual place was built by the community piece by piece.

We have an awesome community and its been neat to watch everyone grow up (since early customize.org days) and land jobs at many of the best UI companies in the world. I’ve also been fortunate enough to make a lot of great friends here. It would be an understatement to say the this community has had a large impact on my life.

Unfortunately, after surveying the situation I’ve realized I myself have neglected the community. With ever harder to customize mainstream operating systems and the rapid development of front end web development I feel like the web has become more of an outlet for those passionate about UI rather than desktop customization. I know this is how I feel personally and why I haven’t participated in the custo scene for some time. I certainly don’t mind keeping the lights on, but with my own job and other day to day chores I haven’t been able to invest the time that the community deserves.

Because of this, I’ve decided to step down and pass the torch to whomever wants to run with it. Everything is open source and available if wanted. I even have an 80% finished PFv2 up for grabs and would be willing to donate time helping with development if someone else wants to step up. If not, I know there’s still an active community at DevArt. My only request is that the community’s interests come first.

I’ll leave things running for another month or so, so you can grab any data or submissions before I shut the site down. If you need help with anything, I’ll be idling in the PF chatroom (see the link in the header).

Thanks for everything. I’m truly going to miss being your host.

SSC 2014 is Closed

by fate0000 on June 23, 2014

Results will be in shortly. Stand by.

SSC 2014 Review Deadline

by fate0000 on June 15, 2014

From here on out the window for submissions has been closed. Time for reviewing will be left open for one more week and will conclude 6/22.

Please make sure you review all the submissions in the contest. You can view them all here:

http://pixelfuckers.org/browse?things=45

As always, at the end of the review period, I’ll be pruning reviews that I see as unfairly altering the outcome of the contest. Things like reviews from users with only one review, or reviewers that only review a very select number of submissions will get trimmed. Its possible reviews that seem to be extreme outliers that don’t have good reason for their rating may also be trimmed.

Best of luck to everyone involved!

SSC 2014 - Final Push

by fate0000 on June 04, 2014

As always I’ll be patrolling the reviews looking for suspicious ratings.

1st place will have their choice of an AONIII print or a print from the very talented ether.

SSC 2014 Updates

by fate0000 on April 24, 2014

It’s that time of year again. This year we’re going to have just one category for all screenshots and the top 3 winners will get a pay out.

I’m thinking we split winnings as follows:

+50% for 1st
+30% for 2nd
+20% for 3rd

I’ll be accepting donations as usual. You can Paypal them to joshua.klina@gmail.com.

I’ll be contributing $100 cold hard cash plus I’m giving 1st place a signed copy of an AON III print.

*Update Thanks to ether’s generous cash donation, we’re now up to $275 cash, an AON III print and a print from ether.

Rules are simple. This is a contest for screenshots and the highest rated screenshots win in order. To enter, submit your screenshot to the SSC 14 category.

As usual, it is very important for everyone to vote on all the entries so there’s enough ratings to get an accurate average rating. If I see anything suspicious like a bunch of new ratings from users who just signed up or outlier ratings from those involved, I’ll delete them.

At the end of 6/14 I’ll tally up the votes and announce our winners.

Also note that submissions must be new submissions specifically for this contest. You are not allowed to use submissions already created! Unless you’re ether, she can submit her one Win98 screenshot from that time.

Due Date: 6/14

FCOAR IS LIVE!!!

by neiio on April 13, 2014

RELEASED!

FCOAR

Everything to suit your needs
Fcoar was an idea borne from the desire to pay homage to the legendary skins and themes that originated at customize.org, a desktop customization website rather popular in the early days of the internet. The main instigator for this project was Lukas Kokoska.

Specifically, the major inspiration for this release start from from GSM (GyspySpaceMuffin), a niche community of skin designers from customize.org. The name FCOAR actually came from the unrealized GSM 2.0 concept which was codenamed fomecore. The logo itself is an overhauled version of the second suite’s logo design made by Tab Turnmire.

As a result, the contributors to this project want to give a shout out to the lads from that era. Our hats go off to you. Included you’ll find most everything to suit your desktop customization needs. I’d like to thank all those involved in making this a reality with their hard work and dedication; it’s truly an amazing group.
