Would you, if the option was available, upload multiple alternative skins per skin submission?

In regards to the year old ticket suggesting multiple alternative skin files per skin post ( , how many of you would use this option if it was to be implemented.

Currently alternative skins should be posted as image files in the description of your skin - instead of showing up in the previewer for the skin, with the classic easy to upload as your personal skin buttons that skins have here on pmc.

Please comment below why you would or wouldn't use this option, and vote in the poll.

I voted yes. My reasons are for, like everyone else, alternate versions. So maybe like different skin tones or if it has a gender the opposite gender. It could also be very interesting with skin packs. If this feature was implemented, though, there would definitely have to be a limit on how many skins you can put in because if not that could get... chaotic.

yeah in the description but the post means having alts in a previewer or something similar to that, so you can actually look at them instead of just having the image file sitting in the description

I’d say it would take a lot of work, but is probably one of the most needed things to the site

It'd be easier to upload free small skin packs and alts, aswell as Skintober skins.

yes, cause then it is easier to see different outfits or colors or maybe even gender swaps

I think it would be a good idea to help stop people from spamming the skin section with duplicates of the same skin with minor changes made, which I see a lot and isn't allowed.

Il add onto that: If I want to redo a skin on a different brand of it, I technically delete the old one, A Skin Bin would be good so if there’s old deleted Skins of your newer ones, You could put them as an alternative classed of ‘old’

I say yes because it makes it so any alts made for a skin can be viewed in the previewer as well.

I would use it for alternative colors, outfits or any other variations of the same skin. \o/ And I would possibly use it for posting older versions of an updated skin as alts for people who prefer the old version.

Might also be interesting to use for Top Notch skin packs (team efforts) depending on how it would be implemented. (I would want to be able to set a thumbnail with all the skins in the pack + a download button for them all to be downloaded in one go)

Hello, thanks for voting all of you.

I would appreciate it, if you wrote some input in the comments, particularly if you said "no" - just for the sake of knowing why you might not want to. (:

I'd be using it if I was uploading multiple versions of the same thing, and also so I don't fill up people's feeds with my ridiculous amount of skins I make each day!

tbh it'd give people more incentive to actually make alt. versions of skins in general

I don't ever do multiple versions of the same skin so I picked no.

That's a very fair choice. Just out of curiosity: In the hypothetical situation where you do have more than 1 skin, or you update a skin of yours but still want to keep the old version of it downloadable on pmc: would you then use a system of posting alternative skins?

Level 26 : Expert Skinner
An alternative way I've seen people post alternative is in the description with the downloads, but I feel like it would be a lot easier to have the system of posting alternative skins.
