I like the Random skins up higher almost at the top.
Please use this thread to give me any and all input on changes you would like to see to skins.be and this forum. We are actively working on redeveloping the site with an eye on improving the user experience while still making it a sustainable product that will thrive for years.
Here are the initial mocks of the home page and the celeb pages. We would love to hear your feedback on the general style and layout. Any input into features to add or remove from the site are welcome as well.

Looks fantastic so far. I really like the flat and minmal design, colour as well.
Also: The ads don't look as offensive as often reported, kudos for that
Perhaps i'm too conservative?
I don't like that all new browsers, etc... have this simple grey design.
Guess the dark colors were a trademark of skins. So not such a big fan of the new colors.
Basically I think it's a really nice design! Something new and fresh! The grey layout looks very clean and clear!
But I'm a bit confused! Where is the 'old' left side-bar with some of the quick links (like 'resolutions' or 'community'? maybe I'm blind or it is now in the menu above or some kind of dropdown menu??) And the right side-bar too with the 'babe of the week' or the 'latest posts from the forum' categories?
Well, it's not that important for me, because mainly it's a wallpaper page! Just wondering if this is no longer part of the mainpage??
Good stuff, and please keep the feedback coming. I'll respond to all your points individually later.
Maybe get rid of the ratings, or improve the security on them. Right now they're pretty much pointless.
if its faster , then its good for me o and 1080 supported for my laptop
I agree that the random skins would look better higher up on that side of the page. Like Frinky said the ratings are all messed up, it would probably best to get rid of them all together or just reset them and only let members vote. I dont know how much work it would be but i would like to see a link to the babes forum picture page up there with the user uploads/news, it would save a lot of time when you want to find more pictures. Besides those suggestion I would say I think the new layout looks great, nice job.
it going to be better the lay out is better and the info it about time for achange with more color can wait to see the new lay out
the design looks great, nice and fresh, can see it still looking fresh in a couple of years time..
With regards to the features, as a regular visitor, I have pretty much never used the "recent user uploads" at the bottom... a latest forum posts in it's place would be more usfull, sure plenty would agree
I really like the simple and clean design.
I hope, that you will try to implement HTML5 as well as CSS3? Especially (CSS3) media queries would be great for widescreen monitors.
PS: Please support 1920 × 1080 resolution detection.
Edit: Official Tweet-Button would be nice, too.

Isn't this a bit like repainting your car when you still haven't got the engine running reliably? Get the server problems under control first, then worry about the superficial stuff.
they didn't even need media queries, they could of used % instead of fixed width, and spanned content to stack as tables, which is a good technique to have the content fill the screen on larger resolutions.. BUT who goes full screen on HD+ monitors? isn't the point of a large rez monitor to multi task better....... win7 even does it's side window snap to half the screen...
and maladroid does make a good point... servers need some support, skins appears to use cloud servers, but going standard dedicated and using a CDN would be cheaper and more reliable
New Design? Looks Great, but what is with the Uploader??? I think the Uploader on Skins is the lowest that i know
Looks very crisp and modern, the grey background should be darker tho.
And i hope that this new design will be for the forum as well =)
And while i'm at it, netbook resolutions and perhaps android/iphone wallies should be added
Its a little heavy on the right side, imo. Other than that, im always happy with the choices made by Admin, not the case with most sites/forums. Keep up the good work. Heres to another 4 years of enjoying a great site.
Edit: I would also like to see 1080 added.
Like the new design!But i would also love if the latest forum posts were shown somewhere in the main page as well!other than that it is very solid and cant think of anything else.
1920x1080 has to added. The vast majority of monitors these days is in that resolution.
