Some of you would notice the Gestapo hand skin I sent in. You would also have noticed that the comments section has turned into a slagging and bashing house, just beause of a Swastika on the skin (that's why it's a GESTAPO hand skin :mad: ).

Even though I made it clear that I in no way support or even like Nazi, and that I'm not trying to offend people, there are still those who continue to insist otherwise. They just go too far. :thumbsdown:

I'm also working on a German weapons skinset which will match the hand skin (about 40% finished), but the weapons all have Swastikas on them. Would it make everyone here more comfortable if I just took the Swastikas off? It'll make the whole set look like #### but if it's gonna prevent another swarm of cynical and racial bashing from certain individuals, then I'll go for it. I would have to rework the whole skins, screens, renders etc. I need your input here.

Once again as a final note, I DO NOT *REPEAT* DO NOT INTEND TO OFFEND ANYONE, and I'm not in support of Nazi or even like them. This just happens to be a good theme for skins.

I would appreciate constructive suggestions...not more bashing. Take note of the above because I'm getting sick and tired.

If you still want to bash me then email me instead. Don't take your personal opinions and feelings on these kinds of topics online, especially not to these forums.

Ty everyone...

The swastika on the sleeve is backwards. The arms bend clockwise, not counterclockwise.

look,

It's historical. If you went into public wearing a swistica and Praisin the KKK then you'd have problems. But if you do that, it is historical themed, and is alright.

Historical themed, right. Then, if you really want to make it bad ass, Id use the eagle hitler used instead, or the german cross(not the swastika), a better alternative, and you won't be disliked. Personally, I think people thought that you were glorifying the image of the nazi's because you were reproducing it on a skin, I'd believe the same thing.

Actually, Invisible Man...that idea doesn't sound to shabby. Might try it out and see if it fits in well.
