    It occurred to me today that droid forums is the only website I visit related to the Droid that doesn't have it's own ROM available.

    So i figured i'd ask if this was something people would like to see? A rom put together with features that the users of this forum would be able to decide on?

    Seems more like one of those "me too, let's get on the bandwagon" sort of stuff. Unless there's a really compelling reason why DF could offer a unique experience by creating its own ROM rather than simply having one for the sake of branding I think it would be unbeneficial.

    I agree. I'd prefer to have a few super stable ones to choose from rather than a bunch of hacked up mish-mashed disasters.

    I would support a forums for wallpaper and themes as long as they are not true ROMs.

    I would want a theme for metamorph rather than a full rom

    i think its a great idea setup a voting system on the main elelments of the rom and then build it according to the winner of each vote.

    that's was generally what I was proposing, i left the poll open for a week, will let majority decide.
    It's 50/50 atm of this post.

    As for the metamorph idea mentioned...

    That would be a whole different project, you're just talking about a theme.

    My only problem with that is the most popular looks are some combination of black and blue..and I think we have enough of those.

    If people wanted a different look, I would consider putting a metamorph theme together, that's not a big deal.

    It's not a me too, or an us too.

    More of a community project, something that would be for everyone, and everyone would have input on what's included.

    I can tell you generally why I came to the idea...

    There's alot of rom's, seems like more every day, yet they all have features included or excluded, so people are making their own, and then posting it too.

    At the rate new rom's are popping up, it'll be impossible to keep up.

    I'd much rather see one inclusive rom, for everyone, then xxxxxxxx rom's to sift through.

    this is the issue im having... while im mainly using Chevy's v2.0 2.1 rom im also using bits a peices from about 4 other roms to make it how i like it.

    been thinking about releasing my own rom but i dont really have the time to invest right now.
