I have one question about skins.

Skin category, I'm pretty sure you know that. There are a lot of cool skins published all around the world, thanks to those skin creators. Now, basically I'm wondering that. Are the skins really made by the publisher of the skin? Or are they copping them off from novaskin, skindex etc. Surely this post will not be seen to usual people, since I have no subscriptions and I'm not known well yet, but I would really like to get answer on this.

I certainly can't speak for everyone on the site, but I guarantee that my posted skins were a product of my own hard work.

No worries. PMC has a good security, so at least 80% of all skins are original works. The rest are either deleted for being "scribble scrabbles", or for the rarer, stealing parts/skins.

I never seen a really obvious, complete skin, stolen skin on here before

A lot of people on PMC who post skins are the personal creators. On Skindex or other sites though, I believe skin stealing is a bit more common.
Most skin's I'd say are created themselves. Moderators do image plagiarizing checks for dodgy skins anyway in case it pops up on any other site. Then deemed stolen. Obviously, there are a small handful of people who edit skins or steal them and get away with it, but most are not stolen.

i'm pretty sure that a lot of the skins found here are created by the publishers of the skins. submission rules say that we are only allowed to post our original content.

In 2011-2014 most skins were made and published by the same person, then in 2015 some skins were edited for the person or the community itself, now since 2016 most skins are edited.
