    Just wanted to let you guys know, my R4 skin site is finally online!

    I posted some time ago about setting up a free upload site for all the skinners, and today I'm happy to announce a substantial upgrade - now you can browse and download skins directly from my site, too! Uploading is still available (as always) but now you can check out everyone's work when you're done, download links and vBulletin code are available for all the files.

    R4 Skin Site!

    I hope people continue to post their skins here on the forums, I've made my site so that it is really easy to share the skins here - just copy and paste the vBulletin code when you upload your skin or when you're browsing the completed skins, paste it into your message here at GBAtemp, and the skin preview picture will be displayed in your post! Very simple ... [​IMG]

    Great work. One suggestion, what about putting something on the site to request skins to be made.

    nice 1 Mavis [​IMG] keep up the good work [​IMG]

    while I don't usually condone cross posting - it would be a good idea to also post this in the m3 simply forum as the skins are completely interchangable [​IMG]

    Thank god Mavis! Going page by page scrolling through the threads in this forum looking for skins got a little tedious after a while. Things are much simpler ... and it's gonna make decision making a lot easier.

    Mavis, can you please remove this skin "1168658624", I accidentally uploaded it with GIF files in the ZIP, I uploaded a proper BMP zip already.

    Nice site, it would be good if when uploading you could put in some more info like Skin maker, date, contact, file size. What you think? That possible?

    Yeah, that's a good idea! There are a few features I'd like to add, it'll probably be a little while because I've already spent quite a bit of money getting the site set up and I'm not that thrilled about having to spend more ... [​IMG]

    Thanks for the feedback though, I'd add that idea to my 'to-do' list!

    You know, it would be helpful if you guys could post here with any ideas you have to help improve the site. I posted this over in the M3 forum and several people there mentioned RSS feeds, so that's something I can look into ...

    So far it's:

    1. More info for each upload (artist, contact info, etc)

    2. Sorting options (sort by number of downloads, popularity, etc)

    3. A rating system

    4. RSS feed ...

    Anything else? I can't guarantee that all of these will eventually get done, but I'm hopeful that at least a few of them will. [​IMG]

    More feedback would be appreciated! / mavis

    - Ratings
    - Sorting (by ratings, downloads, newest, etc.)
    - Number displayed on page (ie. 10 per page)
    - Search (by title and artist)

    Nice one, it really does help being able to see them 'properly' in a nice format.

    Mavis- Hey i noticed your response about updating that you will have to spend more money to update certain parts of your web site. Are you paying to have someone do your web site for you? If so why? you can do all of this in ASP which is super easy to learn. You can learn by picking up a easy learning book like ".ASP for dummies" or just by observing and learning by viewing code that people made at planetsourcecode.com...
