I think these categories are of minimal value with 90% or more of the skins uncategorized.

If you are not sure where a skin fits, then just leave it, but I suspect that a large percentage of them are fairly obvious.

If an author disagrees with where we move a skin, they can just post a reply on the thread asking for it to be moved somewhere else.
So we don't wait for authors requests on where to move their uploads?

No. For almost all of them, we will never hear anything. I think we just get on it...

Alright, understand. Will start working over this a little bit later.

It can be done pretty quickly by just starting in the list of topics in Other Uncategorized Skins, and doing this:



Open a topic

Scroll to the bottom of the page. Choose Move Topic from the moderator tool

Choose a destination

Say "Yes"

Return to the list...

I made a small change to help speed things up.

I created a new Other Uncategorized Skins area, which is where you want to move things that don't fit well elsewhere.

I renamed the area with the existing skins to Older Threads - Will Be Categorized, which means we basically just need to empty that out over time and then get rid of it.

I did this so skins that don't fit don't just stay in the list and cause you to have to scroll through all them to get to ones you want to move.

I hate to suggest adding yet another category, but what about one for "utility skins" (or utilities and tools, etc.). A prime example is the amazing VectorConvertor skin. Seems a shame to toss that into the uncategorized bin...

I'm ok with that.

Edit: Done...

I just got back and was going to continue categorizing ... Yikes! :o

That's a heck of a way to spend your Friday ;-)

Great work! :thumbup:
