What kind of docks do you like?
Maybe you can PM the people that you think have nice docks or something.

Here are some tools for customizing your dock...

ClearDock
TinkerTool


That's all I can think of for now. Only 2, but there's a lot you can do with those (with the dock).

EDIT: If you are on an Intel computer, you might have to use Onyx or Cocktail because TinkerTool (I think) isn't Universal.

Just a little something extra I and quite a few others use blank Dock icons to separate out and organise our Dock-bound apps. You can download a set from Max Themes.

It isn't Universal, does ClearDock work for you?

Yes it does, though I prefer the look of Transparent Dock. Doesn't matter though.

I know but people don't post regular docks too.. I was hoping this would be more of a thread on mods of the dock and how they did it. and what not...

Here's mine...

I use cleardock with all colors turned off (completely transparent). No apps live in my dock. I launch everything from QuickSilver. A few folders reside on the far right. I also modded the Finder and Trash Icons (google it for more info...). I like it.

I like the text docks! Those are awesome. I'm gonna make a set of them right now, for every single application I have, so I'll post it when I'm finished.

I'm a left-sider, using ClearDock and icons from Laurent Baumann, with spacers as well.



I also like the text icons for the Dock, and it's easy to add for some of the more obscure applications that usually don't make it into downloadable collections.

The readme is pretty good, but basically you should see them in column view in Finder

EDIT: Good to see you got it sorted

edit: didn't see the nevermind, sorry.

nope, they are widgets. i made the actual desktop picture have a black stripe, so the whole entire thing sort of looks like a dock.
