Skin stealing has always been a concern for skin creators. It’s easy for people to steal as all they have to do is click the download button and upload.



What if we had the option to limit the ability of others downloading your skins?


Skin creators could limit their downloads on specific skins like a wall post. Public, site members, subscribers, or they can disable the download option completely.

So in this case what's the point of uploading the skin? If you remove the download for the skin, is the aim just to get clout? It doesn't make sense to me, isn't the point of publishing skins to this site to allow others to use them in-game? If you don't want people using your skins, don't publish them, just post them as a wall post with an image to show off your creation. I dunno, maybe I'm not seeing it from an "artist" perspective, because art theft is a big deal.

I dont really like this idea because I enjoy seeing people wearing my skins on servers and stuff. I want them to be able to use them.

Which is why there’s an option Public. Public - anyone, even without an account, can download.

If you mean projects to I do not agree that we should have limited upload
