ok atleast your able to bring out some sort of reasonaing behind the idea .. which is more than i can say for the original poster ... altho i still dont agree that skins are going to make anything any different and id really rather not see them in mirc .. as anything that needs to be skinned is done already by me in my scripts thru dlls... if mirc where to support customized skins then the actual settings and codings for it would be most likely the same as using dlls .. so u wouldnt be gaining very much in my opinion unless mirc came with a few preset skins of its own ....... (horrid idea there) which would allow simple users to just point and click on what they would want. it wouldnt add anything atractive to mirc thats not already there
