Miners need cool shoes. We've all seen it. Maybe some of you have used it. But what im trying to get across is that MNCS is not making your own skin, (unless of course you didn't use the armoury or steal any parts in which case fair play :P). When your using the MNCS armoury your not using your own creativity, your just stealing some parts that someone else has uploaded and claiming them as your own. Is that really making a skin? I think not. Feel free to share your own opinions.

I use MNCS but I make all my skins from scratch. I just use the skin editor on the start page.

....Yes. MinersNeedCoolShoes is a bad way to make skins from the armory. Hence why these skins aren't allowed. And after a brief look at your profile I have found that YOU make great use of the armory. I suggest you remove them yourself before Mods get involved.

No. You can easily create your own shirt or armour but if you really suck at skinning then you can use the armoury the only problem I think with MNCS is not being able to make the size of your brush bigger

Captain, I fail to see how you thought I was riled up by any of this to begin with. Second, your statement makes little to no sense. I fail to understand or even care about how everyone's different. I don't understand why you appear to be so sensetive either.

I think once anything is on the internet, it is public domain. True, perhaps a particular artist didn't submit to that site, but once on the minecraft database, it can be hacked up to their heart's content. If they want to make a customise one, that's fine. They're not skinners or artists, they're just people who like to build a skin that looks good to them. Remember, they're builders, not creators.

Now, when it comes to the matter of ownership, that's a different story. Really, ownership would belong to the site, as it is their tools the player used to make it. Submitting on other sites and calling it their own is an unfortunate occurrence, but it would be happening anyway without sites such as those that make parts accessible. Good thing about that particular site is that you can clearly identify that these pieces came from that site. I'm erring on the side of caution and distributing my skins from here and here only. I like this community, and also if I find any of my skins on other sites, they are clearly stolen.
But I won't be too bothered with it. I understand the risk of that when distributing these skins freely, as I'm mainly using this as an outlet for keep on top of my 2D.

Doesn't hurt for artists who make skins to sign them. Lazy builders won't pick up on these when using the armory :P

I think it's OK. But only at first. A while ago, I saw a skin with a backpack obviously from SkinCraft. Did I comment angrily? No. Did I post a blog about how unfair the skin was? No. Did I even care about it? No. People have rights to "remix" skins and texture packs. I'm pretty sure it's allowed to take another person's skin, edit it around, and submit it as your own, so long as there are enough changes. I don't like it too much, but I feel it's fair to new skinners, as a crutch for them to learn the basics, and make their personal flairs to the armory images to improve them and make them their own.

SkinCraft is better. One, it gives you SIMPLE BASED SKINS, not ones that others created, such as steve, if someone posts it, Obvios its fake...

It's still great to have a little preview next to it. And a shader....

However, I do dislike the armory....

Try MCskinedit. It's what i use, and it's great! It does have an armory, which sucks, as the armory is unfair, and i don't use it, but it has different sizes of brushes, and noise, and the preveiw.

I guess if you dont use any any pre made parts. However there's also skinedit available to download for free, which is alot better than skincraft, and you cant be accussed of stealing parts.

I keep telling this to allot of ppl that promote MNCS site, but most fail to understand that pre-made stuff is bad, ppl just use those default elements and dont create nothing new. All programs, sites or any other tool that haves pre-made stuff just restrains ppl creativity.

Glad you brought this subject up ;)

i make my own skins on that site and i agree people steal thats why i dont upload my skins lol but if you look at different parts of a skin and use them for INSPIRATION not to use then its ok but people steal from every skin site

Fair enough :P I have nothing against using the website itself, it's just when people steal the skins and re-post them as their own which i dislike. For example if you type in "cookie monster" in the search there are about 10 pages worth of variations of the same skin.

though i do see what you mean, someone did originally make all those stolen skins. i use miners need cool shoes and never steal other peoples stuff, i fact half my stuff is the first of it's kind.

How is skincraft better? It's basically the same shit! You can have "pre-made" layer's

of course, you don't HAVE too choose "pre-made" but you neither have too choose armory in MNCS!

Soo i don't see where you want to go with this comment!

Skincraft has an undo tool, fill tool and a better colour selection tool. It's way easier to use and the custom armory looks way better. It's so much better.
