The file extensions are not changed for me: classic skins download with .wsz extension and modern skins with .wal extension.

The new search feature is much better: it finds skins instantly.

Apparently, as I provided a way for members of our 1001skins...a way to register and use uploads, forums, posts and etc; hackers have been attempting to grab credentials for logging into the backend of the site.

On average I receive hundreds every minute on the server. While my host has done much to reduce the attempts to brute force reg/login from thousands to hundreds...I have decided, that I am over dealing with the constant threats made against my little free website.


1001Skins.com | Will finally be shutting down at the end of the month. I just don't have the time to commit to keeping everything good when the site usage keeps falling month over month, no one uploads anymore and it is being brute forced to death.

I will likely keep the domain for a few years; in case I change my mind...but, I doubt this will occur.

Peace.

Rummaged through archive.org, almost hit 19 years since the site got it's own domain. Kudos for keeping it going that long. It's always sad to see old sites go, but it happens and you gotta do what you gotta do.

Still, it would be a sad loss if all those historical skins went down. Why not just turn it into a read-only archive like AllWinampSkins.com, only much richer?

I've thought about that in the past; Enticing as it is the hosting still costs money. And considering that all the skins are indexed, linked and derived from a database...ie the files aren't named like u upload ... think 1277.wsz and it's omg is 1277.png

Kinda hard to put the pieces together without the an which adds to hosting costs.


Though, I got it to around 70.00 yearly...

Mostly due to ad blocking...revenue hasn't covered the cost of the site for years. So, ya.... ::soon::
