Skins

A Wiki

Rules and guidelines that apply to skin submissions.

1.0 Submission Title

Special characters, numbers, and spaces are not permitted at the beginning of the name. The name must describe the submission and be searchable. Do not use profanity in your submission name.

1.1 Author(s)

Every person who worked on any part of your submission must be credited. Put the authors names in the author field and their role in the role field, each entry separated by a new line. Detailed credits should go in the author's notes field. List authors once only. Do not include anyone who did not have a role in the creation of the content.

1.2 Studio Releases

Submissions may be studio releases only if two or more members of the studio worked on the submission.

1.3 Render

The render must include a picture of your skin. No generic renders will be allowed.

1.4 Screenshots

At least 2 in-game screenshots are required. Please take into account what type of skin you are submitting and include screenshots from all appropriate angles.

1.5 Porting

Porting content between games is a controversial issue. Between copyright ownership, developers stances, and the general use of the content being ported, some companies may not appreciate having their content being taken from their native title and placed elsewhere. As such, we here at GameBanana respect the legitimate rights of developers and copyright-holders, and as such have adopted an efficient notice and takedown procedure as required by the DMCA. See the Porting Whitelist for more information.

1.6 Personalization

Personalization is not allowed in skin submissions. Personalized skins are for a specific person or small group and aren't ideal for community use. This includes names of any kind; people, clans, groups. etc.

1.7 Redistribution

All submissions in which you have no part in its creation (Uploading/Screenshots do NOT count) should be set as a redistribution and should not contain the submitter name in the authors list. Please attempt to get the original authors person to re-host their content elsewhere or notify them of your re-upload. Archives must match those provided by the original author with no new additions or subtractions and honor any Readme clauses.

1.8 Non-Compliance

Non-compliance with any of the above clauses, unless otherwise noted, will result in your submission being withheld or deleted at the administrator's discretion.

If you are having trouble understanding any of these rules, please contact a moderator or administrator before submitting. To view a list of moderators and administrators, head over to this page.

    Am I allowed to make a skin mod that replaces a character with another from the same game?
    Example: Mario over Luigi

    I am troubled at a part of the process to uploading a skin. while I did not create the initial skin, I did modify it so it would properly work with the character this skin replaces. I created the morph ball and arm cannon from scratch (since it models over Samus) and edited in "knees" so the legs would not appear misshapen. am I allowed, under these conditions, to say I co-created the skin that's being published?

    One user flagged my V.2 of Crit-A-Winger skin and before I wanted to remove old one, they managed to trash the v.2 one. Now maybe when I post the reupload of V.2 it will be flagged again for other reason(I dunno, spam, duplication, etc). If It will happen again to my reupload, I'm removing my account.

    i agree with Texaneer

Now maybe when I post the reupload of V.2 it will be flagged again for other reason(I dunno, spam, duplication, etc). If It will happen again to my reupload, I'm removing my account. 1. This page isn't meant for issues involving a WITHHELD submission (aside from yourself, admins and moderators are the only other people that can trash your submissions). If the submission is flagged or withheld, make sure to read the reasons on the flags page for your submission. If you feel that your submission was wrongly flagged/withheld, report your submission to submit a support ticket and speak with the admins/moderators about this. Trashing your own submission because of other people flagging it won't help, nor will leaving the site (accounts cannot be deleted, but you can request to have your account banned by sending a support ticket). 2. Although it's a v2, why not just update the original submission instead? That way, people can't complain about it being uploaded separately.

    Rule 1.2 should be revised a bit. Every time I've seen a studio submission with only 1 person, an admin or moderator will usually leave a statement or withhold the submission in question if it doesn't have at least 2 people from the same studio listed in the credits. The rule as it is shown now only states that it can be submitted if members from the studio have worked on it, and some people have misinterpreted that as only needing to include themselves in the credits instead.

    Could you add a section to stop people posting skins that change weapons to other in game weapons? They are useless and lazy. (e.g. Enforcer to Big Kill)
