I wasn't sure where to put this so if in the wrong place please move. But a thought I had was maybe if we move some of the older skins that are no longer supported to a subforum. There are skins such as Minimeedia that aren't maintained and obviously aren't Eden ready and maybe it might be an idea to move them so that any new users know from the start that while they are free to use these skins, they won't boast all the features that current skins such as Xeebo, Aeon and Cirrus do.
Just a thought obviously

I agree. I just wanted to make a topic about this. But than saw this topic.
Skin Help and Support
I also wish on the forum there was a clear way to distinguish the finished eden skins with support/activity and the others.
Could you do that?
The skins which I believe has no activity and eden version : Connected ,Horizonz , MC360 .
MiniMeedia ,Vision ,Vinci and

A small kick to this request/suggestion.
With the release of Frodo in the near future it might be a great time to 'clean up' the skins section.
Perhaps make a subforum for Eden only skins and one for even older skins.
So the structure after the release of Frodo would be:
XBMC Community Forum
- Help and Support
- - Skin Help and Support
- - - Aeon Nox (etc...) (ie skins compatible with current XBMC version)
- - - Eden Skins (ie skins compatible with previous XBMC version)
- - - Old Skins (ie skins compatible with XBMC versions older then the last 2)
Perhaps the distinction between Eden and older versions might not be necessary...
This will considerately reduce the number of skins available and help new users in their quest for new skins . Currently it looks like 30 skins are available, but the reality is that maybe half of them is still kept up to date!

technically yes, but we don't want this and only have one skin installed/available.
