I confess. I am a skin component ripper. I have to let it out. I feel guilty. Flame me.

See, now that HTML for the MB inner is a rip of everybody I think.

It started life in skin loving XMAS , when Jayn did the initial HTML page, I tweaked it to get it running correctly, it was then modified by Duk for some other skin I forget, modified by me again for something else, modified by DigitalDragon for yet another skin, modified again by me for something else.

It's more of an evolution than a rip.

Now, mbinner.bmp is another story, that name was made up by me as a generic name for the image in the minibrowser trick, mbbg.bmp was another for any background image, rippers

And then got clumsily fucked right up again by ¤db¤, just when it was approaching perfection.


I usually use my own names for the MB BMPs.

Golden Ring: I ripped the Elvish fonts, they are Dan Smith's work.
The Colour of Money: Damn! I just ripped the bills.
Whirling Illusion: Just copied from this cover
Skinner's Atlas: The idea was blatantly ripped from Template Amp.
And now I'm ripping Richard Scarry. I'm pitiful

Honestly, I have pasted parts from other things into my skins. Website designs, other skins...

Tiny tidbits, then I change the colour or shape of them. I use them as templates because MSPaint is a bish to start from scratch.

Once I was tempted to rip Steve Moss' italic digital text.bmp and just change the colours. I would never have gotten away with it though

If you rip even a small component of Steve Moss' skins, it will be removed. Steve does not like his work taken at all, not even some buttons. I asked him once.

Yeah, I remember seeing a comment Steve Moss left on a skin that had pinched some elements from one of his own skins. He was quite pissed! (and with good reason)

The italic text.bmp he used on Major Tom and Wargames is one of the best I've seen. I thought I might try something similar in Quiddity, but as it turned out I needed a much smaller font. I would never have actually ripped him off.

It seems to me that because the area of each letter in text.bmp is so tiny and so severely limited, that pretty much anything that is not a direct cut&paste is not a rip. There are a very finite amount of options for different types of fonts, and loads of skinners have done very similar text.bmps, probably without realising it. If you wanted an italic text.bmp, and created your own, it would probably be hard to make it not look like Steve Moss', but it wouldn't be a rip.

If you report everyone as rippers, those "rips" will be deleted, and you'll have nothing to take credit for

If I were you I'd use the following plan:
1. Rip everyone else's skins
2. Join the club

With Opera, you can't just highlight the white text with the mouse and read it. This was my usual method of checking for secret text, and it took me a while to realise that it doesn't work in Opera.
