Im tired of all the f*ckin noobs out in FPSB that think recoloring a skin is illegal. I mean, when you post a skin there is a category for "Recolored models". Doesnt this go for every type of colored models? Wether it is like a vest recolor, or a whole body recolor, there is no difference! FPSB doesn't restrict what "type" of recoloring it is. I just want to know peoples opinion on this. If we can get a good enough reason, hopefully we can have something done about this!

    When it comes right down to it, isn't almost every skin a recolor? I mean, I've seen a huge amount of SEAL and GIGN skins that are simply darkened. Am I complaining? No, I think it's great. Having recolors is a great way to have a change without having one that's extreme so far as to completely start from scratch.

    Recoloring a skin isn't considered illegal unless they don't have the permission to do it for a certain model.
    If your skin is 100% legal, talk to an admin or moderator and get them to do something about it.

    I'm good with recolors, as long as they're not BLATANTLY obvious ten-minute MSPaint jobs. Those... are just sad. Nuff said. And besides, this is an user-regulated community. If there's a bad recolor, I'll trust it to the guys with sense to take 'care' of them (as in, give appropriate ratings).

    I personally use a few recolors for the player models - I find it gives my gaming a personal twang without radically changing anything.

    Ahhh... yeah, basically I agree with you guys, but I think the current situation is okay. Arguing back is just going to create a big mess. The way I see it; hey, if the recolor just reeks total lack of effort then go ahead and criticize it. But if it's an all-right job graphics wise but you just don't like it, don't even rate at all to keep the critique objective. And ignore the know-it-alls.
