So you want a custom skin?

A word about custom skins....

We are absolutely inundated with requests for custom skins. Frankly kiddies, at this point we cannot keep up with the requests. Not to mention the fact the requests and links often come to me via PM in-game, and I can't copy and paste chat with the version of Linux I have on my computer. So if I am sent a lengthy link via PM in game (and I'm always slammed with PMs) there is an excellent chance I will not be able to grab my phone or a pen and paper to copy down a long complicated link! Let me put it another way, I'm not doing that anymore. :P

Also, as I indicated in chat earlier when I was slammed with:
  • "IOKA, where is my skin? It's been 3 nanoseconds since I sent you the link!"
  • "IOKA, can I have this skin? http://www.helltotheno.com/124253743727 ... 273652.png"
  • "IOKA, I gave you a book with the link to the skin I want, please rifle through your chests to find the book I gave you. You should be able to spot it easily because it looks just like the other 2,549 books players have given you...."
We have well over 1,000 unique players every single day. Wanna see for yourself? The next time you are on the server, type /players and you will see the stats. This magnified screenshot snip was taken around midnight, one hour away from the start of a new HOMETOWN day.

For this reason:
  • 1. We must request players be regular players on HOMETOWN for at least 30 days before being eligible for a custom skin.

  • 2. For now, custom skin requests must be sent to me via forum PM only, that way I can easily find your request and visit the link to the skin you want. The subject of your PM should read "SKIN REQUEST." If your forum name is different from your HOMETOWN name, please indicate who you are in-game (with exact capitalization and spelling).

  • 3. The skin must be covered by creative commons licensing and not copyrighted, or must be your own creation. You can find or create skins at either http://www.minecraftskins.com/ or http://www.minecraftskins.net/.

  • 4. Please allow up to 2 weeks for the skin to be converted (if necessary) and the necessary meta to be completed, and for installation on the server. It's not that it takes 2 weeks to accomplish those tasks, it's that it may take us 2 weeks to get to it. We gots a real life to live an' stuff. ;)
Bottom line, we really want to make you guys happy. We know you aren't deliberately trying to be pains in the rumpus, and we know you are all just excited to be recognized as your own unique players with your own unique flair. We totally get it! If you could please just follow the guidelines I posted, it would make it easier for us to help you get dressed. :)


Now, a word about jerseys....


Our infinitely creative GreenDimond made custom jerseys for the Admins and Moderators. They are *awesome* and we love them. The problem is, now most of our players love them too and I am getting jersey requests just as often as skin requests. (Yikes!) I don't think they were ever really intended for distribution, but GD gave BlueFireUn a Kibbie jersey (intending to ask for it back, but forgot) and now everybody is saying "How come so-and-so gets a jersey and I don't??" (Double yikes!) It's pretty flattering, honestly...and hard to say "no," but we just can't give out entire jersey collections to all the players. The jerseys are certainly easier to give out than custom skins since they are already on the server, but the requests! Oh my aching head! (I hope that explanation makes sense?)

Competitions are now held for players to win jerseys! If you want a jersey, compete to get 1st place in a competition and choose the jersey of your choice! If you haven't seen the jerseys, they are inside the town hall.

Thanks y'all! XOXO
