What are you guys talking about? The Skindex is my go-to place when I make skins.

We're talking about a phishing site that uses the skindex name in the URL, not the site which now goes by minecraftskins.com

Okay, I didn't realize The Skindex's URL was different. Have a free emerald.

Yikes. Just clicking the link leads me to another site with all kinds of yuck.

I think I used skindex as a kid? (Feels not that long ago cause I am a younger adult) I gave my poor gran's PC a virus with it.

Hopefully that either gets fixed or taken down.

Skindex used to be legitimate, but it fell out of favor with PMC. When Minecraft withdrew from the public eye, this only hurt them more from my understanding, which ultimately brought them down for good (It used to be Skindex.net, which is now an available domain to buy). Skindex.com was bought by... something. An ad farm, maybe? I'm not sure. It's definitely unregulated and running hog wild.

Anyways, to OP, Skindex is already gone. Someone's just wearing the mask.

You should be able to report the site for viruses/malware, with enough reports the site will eventually be taken down.
