ever since after the April fools joke with the villager skin change i can't load my created skin anymore and many others are as well!
i tried everything in the book to fix this but no solutions yet to be found, i tried the main site profile change, i opened the minecraft folder and manually removed steve and replaced it with my skin (which will revert back to steve upon logging in) and even deleted local and physical minecraft contents and folder re-installing the game. all a failure.
it seems the skin servers are down in my oppinion since how many are effected by this but the site shows its online? i believe not or delays on the status of servers.
please look into this at your earliest convenience as working with skins for minecraft is my hobby and if no one can see these then no point playing the game further.
