[Update] November 12, 2015: Uploads are now working.
[UPDATE!] November 10, 2015: Wow! I didn't plan on being gone that long! But, I'm back, and I've brought the mod back with me! New uploads aren't being processed at the moment, so the mod will only work for people that have used it in the past. If that's you, head on over to my last post in the thread where you can grab a beta version of the mod for Minecraft 1.8!
Also, as a bit of a side note, it seems like the 1.8 update contained code specifically designed to prevent skin/cape mods from working... It's not that easy to stop me Mojang!
[ UPDATE ] November 14, 2013:
The mod will be updated again at some point, but I don't know when. The past 6 months have been pretty rough for me, and I've made a lot of decisions that I regret. Stepping away from this was one of them. I've decided to completely start over from scratch this time. I've meant to rebuild the website a few times now, but it never gets finished. I feel like I can do it this time... like I have have to do it this time.. Because, quite frankly, coding about the only thing keeping me sane these days.I don't know how long this will take. The first version of the site was thrown together in a few hours, and that rough build has been coming back to haunt me in every update for nearly two years. Every update since then has just been tacked onto the old code, creating a huge mess when there are far more efficient ways it could have been done. I don't want to make that mistake again, so I won't be releasing anything until I have something stable, that can easily and safely been added to and modified in the future.I also need to work out a different hosting solution. The current one is too expensive, and relatively unreliable.For now, I'll keep this thread posted with any updates there may be. In the future, the news will be moved back to the main site.One final note: when things are a bit more complete, I'll be looking for a team of coders and moderators. Another lesson I've learned the hard way is managing a site with 32 thousand users is not a one man job.
