    I know I am not the only one thinking this.

    Are there any other websites like it? Google gives me either skins for the case or nothing at all.

    forums about specific flashkarts(or any flashkart) often times have a skins thread. i think we have one here as well.

    or you could make one yourself...seeing as you don't like user-submitted skins.

    I think that he is talking about slow respond of site, and long waiting to view skin for download..

    Site is great, it is little bit slow, but you could find really everything you think of there!!

    It's working perfectly fine for me. Shoot them an e-mail if you keep having the issue.

    It loads at my normal Internet speed. *shrugs*

    I was disappointed to see very wide choices of R4 skins but I found a CycloDS converter!! Looking forward to test some themes on my Cyclo... when it gets here! [​IMG]

    Have some sympathy for the owner before shooting your mouth off. You should be grateful that ndsthemes.com is still up, even after it was down for a long time and the owner got into a car accident a few months ago.

    I hate ndsthemes because they erased my account, somehow blocked my ip and eaven didnt respond for answers why they do that (I was very good user), (maybe they had some database issues but at least they could answer email). (and how did I know they erasem my account cose I checked it by anonymous proxy cose my normal proxy is blocked).

    The thing is that I have a CycloDS, and the Team Cyclops forums mainly just link to their users' skins on ndsthemes.

    I don't like it because the activation email took two days to come rather than ten minutes like they said; because when I log in, I have to go to another section of the site than the homepage to see if my login took effect (which doesn't always happen) because the header isn't properly dynamic; because for some reason themes don't upload for some users for completely random reasons (I suspect that what can be uploaded is so narrowly defined that depending on what program you use to edit images, you just can't upload them); because the help forum doesn't help; and finally, because out of all their skins, I downloaded about five, and just ended up creating my own.

    It seems like there is no other website like this, though, right? I'm just screwed, and will have to create my own skin any time I want a new one?

    It almost makes me want to create a new themes website, but I know that 1) I don't want to be bothered coding it, and 2) it would just have member overlap.

    Hmm either there is two places called NDSthemes.com or I don't understand the problem.

    Just to be clear though, this is where I at least went.
    http://ndsthemes.com/

    In addition to the site pages loading fast, as fast as any other web site for me at least, I was able to browse and view something on the order of 100 R4 themes, as well as download 31 themes I rather liked. Each download involved navigating inwards 4 pages and back out again.

    That site is simple frickin crammed with themes. 114 pages of just anime, and often very nice looking too.

    I enjoy that site. Saves me the trouble of making skins. Though I only use about 2 or 3 lol

    The themes are tied to the calendar, 12 months, 1 theme per.
