  1. This most recent update is terrible, bring back some of the old functions

    Many people on MSS are very annoyed with how this most recent update turned out. The comment cool-down, the removal of comment liking. I know this doesn't sound like an idea, but it is. My idea is to fix these problems. Starting with one of the biggest: when looking at your own comments, you won't see what skin it was commented on, please bring that back. And another problem with your own comments, is that you can't reach the skin it was commented on from that comment, (because the only way you can interact with your own comment is by…

      Hey DapperLuke, thanks for your feedback!

      The comment cool-down is only 15 seconds, we believe any meaningful comments should take longer than 15 seconds to compose so this is the rate we have set in an effort to keep the comments section for actual skin comments and not for use as a chat room. It also helps with our caching, which I’ll explain in more detail below.

      Liking comments was removed due to scalability issues; it prevents us being able to cache comments for longer periods and was causing server issues since we have over 15M+ comments in our database and can cause the app to pull new comments down much slower if we do not cache the latest comments. Lastly, if you want to view a skin relating to a comment, you can always press ‘View Skin’, however you can’t do this on own skin at the moment due…

    • 为什么不加入一些益智类的小游戏在程序里面呢?Why not put some of the puzzle game in the program inside it?

      I think it would be more funny if you consider to add some great functions like puzzle games or some thing else.I love the apps that were made by you!

              • People could sign up to monitor comments and skins to make sure they're appropriate.

                To start off, my idea is to have people who use the app frequently the ability to monitor the comments on skins and make sure skins are appropriate. I recommend this feature because currently many people appear to swear and upload rude or vulgar skins. How would this work? A mod, developer, etc. would select certain people who are nice to others (check the top skin's comments, people go there all the time) and ask certain people if they want to help with chat monitoring. If they accept, they could get Chat Monitor or something as their rank and have…

                • Make it compatible with iOS 6

                  This really needs to be able to run on iOS 6 at least. I'm tired of all these apps that I could easily run being made incompatible by developers... not to mention you're losing money!

                  • Allow to upload skins to mulltiple accounts without having to pay.

                    The fact that we have to pay for our skin to be uploaded to 2 different accounts is not under my approval, I do not agree. If you can, please make a change in the way this works.

                      • Dude! Take off the bloody price tag if I want to upload to 2 different accounts! It's stupid and ruins everything.

                        Dude! Take off the bloody price tag if I want to upload to 2 different accounts! It's stupid and ruins everything. You've become a wallet sucking app which has great ideas yes, but to use any of them I have to exhaust my account of money. Also I last uploaded a skin to a different account before a recent update so now I can't change my accounts skin. This defeats the whole purpose of this once great app. Just think that through and considor

                                      • Allow custom capes

                                        I think that in the Minecraft Skin Studio, we should be able to customize our own capes. Now, being a girl, I think that the three available capes don't ALWAYS match the colors of the skins we make. So I think we should be able to make our own capes.

                                          Unfortunately custom skins are not supported in the Minecraft game itself. Therefore it isn’t possible for us to add this functionality.

                                          If the Minecraft game allows custom cape designs in the future, we will definitely add support for this! :-)
