    ***UPDATE***
    Animating your Droid's boot! - Droidboots
    Site is now open.
    Submit animations to
    droidboots at gmail dot com
    ***UPDATE***

    I just wanted to put a post out for all of those people who keep asking about a forum section for custom boot animations. I am currently in the process of building a site with the primary purpose of hosting boot animations. I have been collecting animations as they are made available on the forums and I am slowly sending PMs to make sure I have permission from the creators.

    I hope to have the site ready for public consumption by the end of the week assuming I can come up with enough time to get a decent graphical layout built. Please feel free to PM me with links to any of your favorite animations. I will anounce the domain in this thread when I feel the site is ready for you guys.

    I recommend you go ahead and link to the work-in-progress site (even if it's not at the final url). When the final site is live, just redirect to it.

    That'll keep us happy in the meantime.:)

    I already have the domain I want registered and I have plenty of room on my current hosting plan along with pretty good bandwidth allowances (will have to wait and see if you guys download too much ;) ). It's really just a matter of not having decided for sure which platform I want to base the site on, right now it's Joomla, but I am testing different download modules and themes to see what fits best.

    I will get you guys the URL soon enough, but you're gonna have to be patient until I finish some of my testing and make some finalized decisions.

    I'm pretty close to being where I want to release the site for now. I'm not sure my current choices have all of the forward looking features I want, but I will sort that out later. Tonight I hope to finish getting all of the boot animations I have uploaded and then I will release the site URL and an email address for submitting boot animations in the next day or two.

    Nice, this site will be cool.

    Also it would not be bad to post a small tutorial on how to change it.

    A small set of tutorials is in the works, but I probably won't finish them before I open the site. I have also been talking with someone who is building a boot animation changer app for the Droid which will be offered for download from my site once it is complete.

    O.k. you guys! I've still got alot of work to do as far as customizing the download plugin, but I don't want to hold you up for that!

    Animating your Droid's boot! - Droidboots

    I will be working on a solution that provides preview images, but for now you'll just have to test 'em out on your own. I am also going to work on getting the search to work with downloads and some sort of tagging/categorizing for the animations.

    New submissions may be emailed to "droidboots at gmail dot com".

    I do reserve the right to refuse any animation for quality or content. If that happens I will notify you of my reasons. I will also be testing every animation on my phone before posting, so if it takes awhile to see your submission show up don't worry.

    No problem, I'm a sucker for cool loading screens. I just wanted to be able to go one place and see all the different choices!

    You need to put example gifs up under each download so people can see what they're getting into first.
