Well, I think that we would need some more details on your idea of certification.
Is it a "Rainbow approved"-style certification?
As for the shop:
I know it's not my own business, but I must be sincere...It would never come in my mind to buy a skin, even if certifed, when I could find lots of them for free...I don't think that the gap between a professionally designed skin and a free skin (except for some cases) can justify a price.
Moreover, after buying it, I couldn't even say my skin is unique, since anyone could buy it again after me.
two last questions. What would imply the certification? An increase of the skin's price? What exactly do we certify?

hi to all
a short email just to let u know that Rainbow has its own shop for modules and skins. If you are interested in sell modules or skins that u have made and which won't be inserted in the core, pls, go to http://shop.rainbowportal.net, verify terms and contitions and feel free to contact me for any question. We are collecting products to sell and we hope that the shop will be completely active within the end of november.

i think that we should start thinking to a kind of certification process (for modules and skins) and i suppose that ur teams could work thinking about it. I have some ideas about it but i would like to know ur opinion in advance (is this a good thing, it's useless, its a waste of time, it's a commercial opportunity and so on ..)


thnx to all
