Posted 07 October 2010 - 11:56 PM

Hello everyone,

I'm Charles, the new owner of The Skindex (http://www.MinecraftSkins.com).

Thought I'd introduce myself.

I'm working on some large changes on The Skindex to include more requested features.

Also, there will be a blog added which will feature Minecraft News, Hacks, Mods, Maps, Textures and more..

Any feedback/requests is greatly appreciated.

What do you think of the Blog idea? What else should I include into it?

I'm also looking for people who are fascinated by the Minecraft game and that will be able to post onto the blog a few times a week if not daily..

Let me know if you're interested!

Thanks

Aye I have ran plenty of wordpress blogs actually, and its fairly easy to use and what not. I already have a wordpress account, which im guessing you are using wordpress software to run it via the site and not wordpress.com?

You've probably had this suggested already but just in case you haven't -
It would be great if we could browse categories (example: sci-fi, horror, tv, anime etc).

A couple of requests/suggestions:

1. A popularity indicator. I.e. how many people are using, or have downloaded said skin.
2. The ability to order skins by popularity, rating, date or alphabetically.
3. Tags.

Awesome site though, will be reading the blog =]
TexturePacker.net - Customize from multiple texture packs in seconds
I also host the websites for, and play on AerialHeights.com & MinecraftMiddleEarth.com.

It is being worked on as we speak,

When you upload skins you'll be able to choose a categorie, for example, Sci-Fi, Movies, TV, Games...recommend categories here please so I know what to offer. you'll be able to add tags to the description

Also, you'll be able to sort by votes, downloads, date...

Hey, I can't seem to get any of the skins to work.  If I try to download them I get 'the requested URL was not found on this server', and if I try the auto-update tool (or whatever you call it) it shows a blank skin and if I try to proceed I get "Failed to save skin: javax.imageio.IIOException: Can't get input stream from URL!"

Is there something up with the site?  Or am I missing something?

my suggestion: HD skin textures. No one makes texture skins over 16x16 pixels! I have seen one HD skin and it was cool to see it. Encourage and promote this more please.
