TO ORGANISE OUR FORUM FOR THE GENERAL VISITORS WE ARE INTRODUCING SOME POSTING RULES MENTIONED BELOW
We have got the Main Section For Chrome Themes/Skins and this is called Chrome Themes. This is where all New Themes are going to be Released. For releasing any themes there are certain rules which have to be followed so that a general visitor to the forum can easily search through and find the themes they want.
Format For Posting A New Theme/Skins
Title of the Post : Theme Name - 2-3 Words Description
Theme : Name Of Your Extension
Developer : Name of the creator/developer of the theme.
Latest Version : V 1.0 or Whatever it is..
Download Latest Version : Link To the Download For The Latest Version mentioned above. If your theme has different download links for Stable/Beta/Dev Versions please clearly mention that download link.
Description (optional): You can give a description of the theme in brief.
Features : If there are any stand out features of the theme it can be put here in bulleted format or as you may want.
- Feature 1
- Feature 2
- Feature 2
Issues Fixed In New Version : Whenever the theme is updated, it can be stated here what changes have been done in new version from older version. Just mentioning the issues would be pretty good.
Browser Compatibility : You can mention here which of the browser versions are supported by the theme.
Older Theme Versions : You can just link to the older version downloads of your theme stating the corresponding versions.
Aditional Note: This is optional, you can put in what you expecting to include in new versions if any etc..
Screenshots (Required) : You can put in the screenshots of the themes.
Thats about it..
Please Remember :
You can directly upload your attachments (screenshots, etc) via the upload attachment option when you creating a new thread. Or else you can use any well-known and well-used image uploader such as imageshack.us, etc
The Opening Post of the thread can be edited by the thread starter whenever you want. So when there are updates on the theme, there is no need to create a new thread instead you can update the thread with the info as above and can easily track your versions from one single thread.
If you are not the developer of the theme and posting here just for information then please do provide as many details as you can. And if possible the developer name and or source of information. The mods can then fill up the post with the info as it is gathered.
Note To Mods: Please try to keep this section as clean as possible.

This section is for New Themes which have been released and editing the existing threads with new info.
Themes Troubleshooting : http://www.chromeplugins.org/google/themes-troubleshooting
This section is for any random troubleshooting for theme. Any one can post there problems regarding any theme over here.
Themes Development : http://www.chromeplugins.org/google/...s-development/

I hope the rules are going to be followed. It may seem a lot of work in the start but in the long run this would keep our forum extremely clean and user/developer/visitor/member friendly.
