Simple view of Skins with Screenshots?

Is there somewhere I'm not finding that shows the various Skins in a preview/screenshot sort of view? I would assume so, but can only see that you have to go into each Skin posting and find screenshots yourself. Seems counter-intuitive.

Thanks!

yes please, always putting up a skin without knowing how it looks is a pain of a work. Also direct link for the download like for the patches or new releases on the first page would be much appreciated.

And please keep the links updated. I had now 2 links where i could not download the skin.

I totally agree: not showing any screenshots of the skin is so dumb... how am I supposed to know how it looks like...


#4

Totally agree

+1 for Screenshot-collection :)


#6

+1 for this !

I don't understand why this isn't a thing either. Perhaps the development of so many different versions of plex should slow down and focus on features and providing other services would be a better call.

It's not a "thing" because no user has done it. The Plex Team won't do it because these are third party skins, not made by them, and are only for PHT (no longer supported by the Plex Team) and OpenPHT (a third party product). Not realistic to expect the Plex Team to make this a "thing".

The skinners themselves (speaking for myself as a skinner at least) haven't done it, because, well, why should any of us have to make a thread showing off skins other than our own. And really, such a thing would be incredibly biased by nature, as the skinner making such a thread would have a stake in one of the skins. Not realistic to expect the skinners to make this a "thing".

And all the skins that are still supported (most are dead or abandoned) do have numerous screenshots in their threads, and do have updated download links in the first page of their release threads.

There are only three skins currently being actively worked on and still supported:

Aeon Nox 5 (my skin): http://forums.plex.tv/categories/aeon-nox

Night (by bkury): http://forums.plex.tv/categories/night

Plex Black Edition (by Deadeyeflint): http://forums.plex.tv/categories/plex-black-edition

So if any of the users here want to make such a thread, that's the only way it will become a "thing".

This is ridiculous. Still. Skins…with no previews. :-p
