Posted 10 March 2011 - 12:50 AM

Hello Minecrafters,

My name is Kenny and with the help of my buddy Nathan we present to you http://minecraft-skindex.com

We whipped this up after the continual frustration of Minecraftskins being down. This is hosted on a dedicated server so there shouldn't be any contectivity issues. The site will be simliar in concept but with a few tweaks that many of you have been asking for. Comments and categories have been created along with sorting based on top downloads, votes, and comments. Let us know what you think! We would love any feedback or requests that you have and we'll try our best to incorporate them.

There aren't many skins as of now so help us seed the database by uploading your favorite skins! :Diamond:

Totally like how you stole my Skindex name :D Looks like you're also using my (shitty) 2D skin script without the attribution. Also totally cool :cobblestone:

Anyways, good luck. I sold the Skindex months ago to the current fellow running it because the community wasn't willing to donate more than $1.50 over two months to support the cost of running it ad-free. Hope you have better luck without making it an ad farm!

Edit: Oh, looks like you've already got ads up. Heh.

Yes, we incorporated Skindex in our name since it's a popular term :Diamond: No, we did not steal your 2D script because that was coded ourselves. Since servers aren't free, ads were a put up :) Your original site was great but it sucks that the douche bag has killed it. Thanks for the feedback.

It's not actually a popular term, it was originally proposed in a scientific paper as a scale for measuring effects on skin.
It was trademarked for a period of time in the United States, and was not up kept. I own the trademark on it in Canada.

Ah, funny, I assumed you used mine as it's pixel-perfect identical to the images generated by my script :SSSS: Funny, eh?

Regardless, I don't really care, not my problem anymore. Just kinda shallow shoddy to steal another sites name (which also made the term popular in the first place) for usage in your own name without even asking out of good will :o

The origin of Skindex was unknown to us, sorry for our ignorance. Yes, the term was made popular due to the site hope there are no hard feelings. I assure you the 2d images were created with a simple script that we wrote. If you have any ideas/suggestions we would love to try work them in. :Diamond:

Just wanted everyone to know the site has been renamed Minecraft SkinShare with some aesthetic tweaks. Domain hasn't propagated so we can't move it over yet :)

I like this.

I hate how the old skindex's new owner thought that putting up forums and mods, and everything else would make it better. I just want a place where I can just find skins.

All right everyone, if we don't buy Lamborghinis for one day, the price will go way down and then we can all afford one. It's Economics!
