Hi Josh - I appreciate your enthusiasm but at this stage, I would really prefer knowing that the skins are downloaded from here, as this is part of the dnnskins agreement some of these contributors had in place from back in 2003.
What you might like to do is extend your skills to skinning by making some cool modifications that others might like to the default skins that come with the build.
I can't tell you how many hours I've spent managing this site and I would be really disappointed if people came along and thought - wow, Nina's made this really easy for me, I want to do the same.
The reason I don't like to see the non modified skins online, is because most don't work correctly in earlier versions of DNN - it was very hard on newcomers to come in and download these skins, and find they didn't work.
It took about three months to get these skins right to put them online again. At this stage, no one pays me, no one helps me, no one supports this site except for me now as less and less people seem to offer their work for free, and it's not been through lack of trying, but I don't think people realise just how hard it is to satisfy an open source environment and I've been doing this for close on 5 years now, just dnn work. It uses about 150gb of traffic, that I have to pay for each month, on my Australian server, but my committment to DNN where I can help to foster this environment for newcomers to come in and try a few things, is very important to me.
So I really do appreciate your enthusiasm, I love seeing newcomers to DNN, but my suggestion is you start like I did, and that is - make your own skins, ask others to contribute to your site. And I would start by making some nice changes to the default skins, changing the CSS, maybe some colours and offering them up for free download. Or, making some very cool handly little modules for the community. That would really be something I'd like to see.
Thanks very much for taking the time to ask and I genuinely hope you don't get offended at my response.
