Hi guys

IL2skins.com has become an integral part of the IL2 community, and has done untold good for the skinning community. It has allowed skinners to upload their work for others to use and comment on, and for fans to download countless skins to customise their game. Basically, it rocks!

I'm sure everyone here enjoys IL2skins.com, and that's why I'm asking you all to dig deep and donate something to Sharx. It's good ol' Sharx who maintains the site, but most importantly, pays for it! All the costs come out his own pocket, and he does it for the community, without asking for anything in return. He's recently upgraded the site, adding more memory and a whole host other things, so the cost is mounting. And with all the extra traffic, there's a good chance the site will exceed it's monthly bandwidth

How can you help? Simple! Scroll down the front page to the 'Paypal Donate' button and make a donation! It's that easy! Any amount will do, just to show your appreciation and help Sharx with running the site!

Thanks guys

Canon

btw, Sharx hasn't requested this plea...he's too proud http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

After downloading almost 9000 skins from this marvelous site, I feel like I own something to Sharx and his site! So, I decided to get a mastercard and donate some money to keep it going.

Last time I upload a skin, it didn't show in the top 10 uploads on the home page so I emailed asking why. I'm still waiting a response, that was 2 months ago.

The front page only displays historical skins, so if you skin was anything but historical, it wouldn't be displayed.

Sharx is a very busy guy, and rarely visits the site, and so you shouldn't be bothered that he didn't reply. If you have questions about anything, ask in the IL2skins.com forums, or PM either myself, adlabs6 or hunhunter_texas

Thanks

and BUMP

It's certainly a great thing for us all to support il2skins but what about Ubisoft?

The community is an important part of IL2 success and it looks to me it would make perfect business sense for the publisher to support that site.

If you just click on the 'Donate Paypal' button at the bottom of the first page, the 'pay to' field is completed. You'll need to set up a paypal account if you don't have one, but it only take 5 mins http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks guys for the support.. It help a lot to cover the bandwidth. As for the un-answered emails, i'm sure it happened more than one time in the past, sorry about that. It's always better to ask in the forums as Canon wrote.

I asked for reduced hours at work. I'm now back on a normal 40 hours schedule that's why i had time to work on the site and i'm taking care of it again. I always checked the server from time to time but didn't have enough time to answer all the emails (16,000 registered users) and to update the code. Now i've time that's why i'm working on it again, i fixed almost all the probs in the last days, working on tools for the mods and also reading the forums again.

Imagine working about 80 hours a week on servers, then getting back home and taking care of another server, wasn't already easy. Add a girlfriend and a social life on top of that.. Back to normal life for me now i guess http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
