I thought that too, but if the folder already exists, the error message will not be "Unable to create folder..." but "That folder already exists."

So I believe they are dealing with something different.
Perhaps. Maybe he has some permissions or attributes issue with his Skins folder.

Or maybe it's just some form of "Lieutenant Sobel does not hate Easy Company, Private Randleman. He just hates you."

Hey everyone, I'm sorry for not clarifying it in the first place but yes, this is what I tried and the name is not the issue. I tried many random ones and nothing worked. I tried numbers too. Same error. I've been creating skins the same way for a good 4+ years and never had this issue before. It's pretty strange.

So we have to wait for kyriakos876's information on what he did.
