we could parse their site, it was nice if they had a mobile phones one, those are easier to parse
Zero at programing, zero at writing codes, so far 2 at making images
But I'm good at copy/paste, and I not always like this

As I said, the main site could certainly be parsed, but I hope that anyone who does that will just use that skin themselves and not post it here for download (without a HUGE disclaimer that it WILL break sooner or later and that knowing how to use Regular Expressions is required to fix it) and won't post it at all on devArt or Customize.org. If "Rainmeter Help" starts filling up with folks having issues with a skin they downloaded that parses the main site directly and now won't work, we will track down the author of the skin and beat him to death.

It may not be as big a deal as it would have been 5 months ago. Rainmeter / Enigma moved off of AccuWeather with version 1.1, and I suspect we will mostly get questions from those using Sarge's excellent "Visions / Splicer Pack" skin that is a big hit on devArt. Just have to take them one at a time and point out alternatives.
