Work now begins on an all-new unified BitTorrent GUI client, with multiple torrents downloaded and queued in a single window. I am therefore starting a contest where you folks can design your own dream BitTorrent graphical interface!

Pretty designs are nice, but I'm sorry, windows are going to be rectangular. Feel free to experiment though. Extra points given for usability and layout. I'll set up a poll in a few weeks to choose the best concept. I can't guarantee that's what the final product will look like, but I'll hopefully be finding good ideas in all your works.

Let the skinning begin!

Here's my WIP for the new GUI.

I'm still working on the rest of it but thats basically the download manager part of it. And thanks a ton SHAD0W for your great BT Client.

i would just like to say that if the selected skin is column based (like the one SprkFade suggested) it would be great if we could choose what columns to have and in what order they appear (like you can do with ABC)

thanks!

I'm sure that can be eaisly added. Also, if anyone has any suggestions of things for me to add/remove from the gui please feel free to post them. Because as much as i'd like to think i'm perfect i'm sure i'll forget something. :D

here goes...
Image

1. is tabs to select witch torrents are shown at 2.
    Torrents tab: shows downloading files
    Seeds tab: Files being seeded
    History tab: downloaded torrents.. for re-seed :)


2. shows bit info about torrents..
when one torrent is selected more info will be on 3.

3. Detailed info and settings about torrent selected on list(2.)
(this is here cos i wanted to get rid of horizontal scrollbar on 2.)

toolbar should be bigger tho.. and better pictures for buttons.
if toolbar is good enough it doesnt even need menu..

ask if there is something confusing/stupid..

hope you all like it :P

I guess this is more than just a skin suggestion, but each torrent should have its own upload cap, perhaps in the area you labeled 3.

Tabs may be better as it will clear up the sides and not look as builky, I'd want for the gui to be as lean as possible but still allow for the needed information to be displayed.

i think most options and configurations per-torrent should be made via right-click to keep the interface as clean as possible

Excellent submission, sleipner! But I was hoping to see more, doesn't anyone else have something to contribute? Even if it's off-the-wall it might have a gem I can grab.
