    Default Owner/Operator of Skins.be?

    Has anyone heard from the person who owns Skins.be/Operates it? The image host has been broken for a year or longer. I thought we were going to see a redesign http://forum.skins.be/thread23269.html . It's sad to see what used to be such an active site not having up keep.

    Didn't realise you were an Admin and had access to the logs to know who banned who. The last contributor who left Skins was Sachse and the reason he/she left was because of... you!

    How many times have you been banned and how many chances have you had now? Yet you are still a little turd, a little smart-ass who doesn't learn. When you decide to be critical of someone or something, get your facts right first otherwise you just irk people. Keeping pushing and eventually you'll get KO'ed one way or another by someone.

    You are clearly delusional if you believe this is somehow my fault. Skins would have been where it is now long ago without my contributions (pictures, wallpapers, BT - shall I go on?). You may have had more posts, but you're not even close grasshopper.

    Good riddance.

    ============================

    @Frinky: Don't hold your breath, mate. The powers that be of Skins come out of hibernation every 6+ months or so, post stuff similar to the thread you linked to saying they'll do this, do that, fix this, fix that, change this, change that... then disappear, never to be seen again until another 6+ months or so and the cycle starts again. So, unlike what the dumb-ass above me pointed out, Skins is in the state it is today solely because these guys ain't doing jack. I've stopped contributing, the Editors have stopped doing wallpapers etc. because until they pull the finger out of their bum and do something, we won't be doing anything either. If they spent just a fraction of the time and put in just a fraction of the effort that some users on here put in, Skins would still be going strong.

    apparently is a little fight going on in the forum, I guess we just have to wait and see what happen, lets just hope for everything solve quickly and the forum can finally come back to his well deserved glory, and become the good old forum that we all love and miss.

    I really like vBulletin and Skins' layout, which is a reason why I visit this place. I'd like to know of similar sites, but I know it's against the rules.

    On the redirect.....

    I was able to stop it on Firefox by entering bodisparking.com into the blacklist on the extension BlockSite. Hope that helps a few of you guys. I don't have the redirect at all on Chrome.

    I looked up skins.be on http://www.dns.be/ and it is registered to a P.O. box in the British Virgin Islands. That same P.O. box appears to be the mailing address for a fancy-schmancy vacation villa:

    http://www.therefugebvi.com/contact.html

    What's up with that? Is the owner/operator living in the lap of luxury on a tropical island?

    Makes sense. If I lived there, I wouldn't be here either

    So CherLlyodOfficial was banned? I'd be curious as to why because it seems like he was the only one who was posting pictures.

    Every forum page includes an embedded flash object http://cmcmdo.com/content/86/flash2.swf in the footer. That domain has now expired, and the parking server has a rule that catches all swf requests. Presumably they intended to direct traffic to their own advertising, but in this case it ends up redirecting to the forum front page.

    Ideally, someone should remove the object from the page footer. In the meantime, users might like to block the above URL using Adblock Plus or equivalent. Or the whole cmcmdo domain using any appropriate extension, or hosts file. NoScript may work if it is set to block Flash as well as JavaScript.

    it was hard even to get to this page, but it finally worked... anyway, i sent at least 2 messages to the owners via the "contact us" form, but i didn't get any answers

    Sadly it feels like this site is dieing, by I guess it has been that way for quite a while.
    I hope things will go the right way and things get fixed, but if it doesn't then I'm sure that another site will pop up to take over.

    Yeah, looks like the forum is coming to an end. I don't know if it's even worth posting pictures anymore. Only a few people are posting pictures and it seems like a lot of babe threads are not updated with new pics.

    Abandon ship.

    Owner(s) of Skins have never contributed a single picture post or wallpaper, meaning that unlike the rest of us, they have no interest in what Skins is about. Their interest is purely business/economical. This is the only logical explanation, otherwise you have someone wasting their $ on something they have no interest in... Hmmm, no.

    Whilst the site is up, the revenue is coming in, they couldn't give a rats.

    So, if you care about the site, abandon it and let it die. This is the only way you can save it. Site dies, no $, only chance they will fix it.

    I'd rather see sites just go down rather then being up and not having any owners active.

    Seems like a logical thing to do. This is probably the only way we can get owners attention and if we will not... Well so be it. Time to move on.

    It's a shame when owners do this, when this site started to go downhill I started my own site instead so you are all welcome there
