    Just wondering if you would be interested in a site containing Theme/ROM images. You can get a preview here:

    sheldonbowyer.com |

    No, that won't be the website name, haha. Just using my personal site for testing purposes. Remember, this is just testing, I have nothing finalized as far as look. Dev's / Themers would however have your own place to have all there files located, and bandwidth would not be an issue, so there wouldn't be a need for MediaFire, Rapidshare, etc. Anyway, take a look. You can see I do have some experience with sites, you can see my other at

    PS3Dynasty|Playstation's Finest

    I would like to eventually contain as many themes/roms as possible. Just wondering if you would happen to be interested or not.

    Please remember, this is still early in the development stage. I just thought it would be easy to track or keep all themes/roms in one place, with images and some info on each.

    I possibly have one on board so far, and awaiting a reply from a couple more people.

    Worth a shot, or no?

    I have used Fab's ROM's as an example. Just trying some different things. Looking at different setups, so if you look and see it one way, then its not, that is why. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

    This looks like a really great idea, a great place to keep all ROMs and themes in one place. Nice work:)

    Yes I think this would be a great idea for organizing roms, however, I think that the forums are irreplaceable. I think that the website would be a GREAT idea to organize roms and be able to see them all and their screen shots, but I would still use the forums as well to get the most up to date information. Good job! :D

    Definitely not interested in taking place of the forums.

    This is, like you said. A place to organize. Anyone who themes can submit unlimited screens, posts, etc. I like to look at each theme/rom that comes out, and some just don't have enough screens to see what it looks like, some don't have any.

    This would hold the files, on an unlimited bandwidth server. No "premium" buys of Rapidshare, no MediaFire, etc. No waiting for the timer to download. Simple click, save your .zip, and that's it.

    The forums here are a valuable tool, I read/lurk all the time. Just trying to contribute is all.

    I like the idea. The example link looks good with Fab's Droid X as an example. I can definitely see this going somewhere.

    It's a shame this was originally designed for iCrap. That is what is taking so long, switching everything.

    I do have 3 themes listed.

    If you would like your theme listed, please let me know. As said before, this is a testing phase.

    I am open for any suggestions too. Please. It helps with the process.

    **If your theme is shown, and you want it removed, please let me know. I am not taking credit for any of these themes, I would just like to have them all viewable in one spot.**

    Tonight:

    * Add more themes.
    * Add area for ROMS
    * Add some type of "goodies/extras" area.
    * Search for possible domain names.

    Themes will most likely get facetime on the front, the grey space. Oh, and unless it fits with what I am trying to go, I will most likely skips the whole putting ads in part. Haha.

    Ok, skipping to the end. I prefer to finalize a domain name before continuing on.

    Available:

    droidthemez.com
    mydroidtheme.com
    droidroms.com
    thememydroid.com


    Again, I am open for suggestions.... Would like to get this moving. Hah.

    On board so far:

    Fabolous
    pandroid
    roberj13
    inssane

    Have asked more, waiting for a reply. I just don't want to take the stuff that is theres and throw it all over a site, without them saying it's cool.

    Anyway. If you would like, you can submit new images for use to my email, i have it worked out to use a drocap image. Just send them to me, along with any files you need. Slowly getting other issues worked out. Small tweaks, etc.

    Again, always open for suggestions. Such as... eh, a logo. Hah.

    All I have so far is in my sig.

    I love the idea. I hope this takes off. It would be great to have all choices laid out in once place with respective screencaps. Same for roms w/ expenation, perhaps even a section for kernels?
