Not needed very often. I've always found that "ask Anders" has been very effective.
Now, perhaps if admins could use the button to retire other people's skins....
ETA: It's a little like the "Create a skin" menu item. Last clicked sometime in the Pleistocene Era.
It’s easier to hit the remove skin button, then it’s gone as well as forgotten.
Just skin developers was my thought. Even if a skin’s developer is not around I’m not sure an admin should unilaterally move the skin, I think that is more of a business decision.
By the way, I like to close my questions down to make it easier for me. If I had twenty unanswered questions it would be a pain to go through them. I’d be quiet happy to have questions automatically close a month after the last post, maybe even locked.
