All I have to say in response to this is please read this thread: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... =9&t=33639aidan_cage wrote:well, it was posted within the original skin's thread, so it wasn't like he was starting a whole new thread for his original skin idea. Pretty harsh scene, and it was probably a nice recolour that won't ever get done again. I don't mind any new changes to old skins, especially as nothing new is happening around here elsewise. I would love for someone to take on updating the Shiny Monkey skin I threw together from other people's work to MM3. I don't have the time or patience right now, and certainly wouldn't come down heavy handed on anyone that did. I guess some people feel strongly about their legacy as skinners. If dreadm were to release a version of his skin that was recoloured green, we would all know that he was just copying what this other guy had already done. This kind of means that there will never be a green version of this skin anymore, which is kind of sad.
I'm all for people adding to the community, but there's a right and respectable way to do it. At the very least, PM the original skin author to at least let him know you want to re-release a version of his/her skin. It may seem petty to you but it takes a lot of time and effort to put together an MM skin, and it can be disheartening to see people using your material without even acknowledging you first.
