I agree....there is a lot of lameness and lack of originality when it comes to skin mkaing. "Why publish them?" you ask. Winamp has over 17,000 skins on this site, and a very limited number of Reviewers to review them. In all fairness, it's a bit lame to expect the reviewers to remember every skin they've published to know when another one comes along if it is a rip, or a "subtle change" from another skin.
Now I have a question for you......you said you checked out most
of the skins here in 20 minutes.....what kind of connection do you have? (apparently not a dial up).....that's alot of skins to browse in 20 minutes!
