Hi All

I know its not finished yet, you still have until Friday to put yours in, but I was looking at the submissions so far and wondering if anyone else had a favourite. Out of the submissions up to now, in my opinion these are the best so far:



by momo2


by bhwhelan


by brianserge


by tiefblau


by jesseross (note the background is transperant, nice touch jesse Smile)


by peter_urbancik (not sure if I like the quill, but it is in there because of the kickass background)

Out of that lot I think my favourite is the one by bhwhelan or jesseross. Anyone have a particular favourite out of those or any others? They all can be viewed at http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=36491

Out of the ones you posted, I too like best the two you mention.

I dug through several of the splashscreens once before. I got tired of looking at so many. I will be happy with whatever they pick. I am not real choosey.

This is exciting!

Hello All!

Thanks for the posting of some of the submissions!

However, Why can't OO place the submissions in a gallery so it would be much easier to view them.?

Also, I was wondering. Would it be possible to allow users to insert a screen they might like instead of the default one (the one that will come with OO v.2)? Smile

SC

If the developer do not change how OOo's splash screen is loaded at startup, then there is a trick to change the splash screen, in fact to any bmp that you like Smile

see this

Governator,
I agree, I like that last one too. We must have similar tastes. Very Happy

Voting is now open to registered OpenOffice.org members. There is a link on the front page (where the Screenshots used to be).

Unfortunely, out of the ones I picked, only one made it to the top 11 and there are quite a few which I really don't like. So I am now lobbying. There are two standouts, both by the same person, one that I chose beforehand and another one. These are Splash Screen Number 5 and Splash Screen No 6, both by bhwhelan. You can vote for three of them. Please make sure No 5 and No 6 are two of your choices. You can see them below.

You can vote at http://oosurvey.gratismania.ro/polls/poll.php?mode=poll&poll_id=3

Peter



Splash Screen 5


Splash Screen 6

Here we are again Govenator. Agreeing on the same splash screens. Those are the only two that I thought were worthy of my votes when I voted earlier today. Actually all of them look pretty good, but I did like those 2 much better than the rest.
