The default skin hurts my eyes when playing Taiko ;_;
Sometimes custom skins and skins from the site make it more difficult to play by having a cursor which tends to blend in with backgrounds, and having hit scores (50, 100, 300, etc.) which are so big that they interfere with visibility, not to mention that some of them are kinda flashy. The default doesn't cause any problems for me so I just stick with that.
I use my own skin, Spectrum 2. Check my sig, it's sik nasty
i use a heavily modified skin of Dakkychan (RIP) link
I mostly use default for osu!, CtB, and taiko. but i use a modified o2jam skin made by ecafree2 for mania, since the column size and colour isn't good (idk how to change it).
The question is: Is the main purpose of a skin to make the game look better - or to make it simple? 8-)

i usually like to mix skins that i downloaded, because i like some textures from that skin, and it's the same with other skin, either way, i end up mixing things anyway lol.
Default skin with follow points from ShigeHDHR and transparent slider end
Custom skins make my PC lag,that's why I use the default skin.
Costum, it can be made for more "Minimalist"

Currently using a combination of Harmony and WilchQ's skin
Custom Transparent skin user here :)

Anyway, my only issue with a skin is its hitsound and transparency for smooth play. Like, I get comfortable hitting those circles with a nc hitsound and get comfortable reading the map with transoarent sliders. Somethin like those.
I use skins that don't take to much focus like Luminous (v2) (link, IT doesn't have any numbers in the circles and that does have pro's and con's. The pro's is as i said before it doesn't take much focus and that when ever you get a miss, 50, 100 or a 300 it isn't distracting and in your face but the con's are that I really like jump maps but sometimes I become confused with the order of the circles. If i would change the default skin I would make the colors less vivid and the miss's, 50's, 100's and 300's less distracting.
imo rrtyui's skin is the best
no i don't use a skin

I find the updater's skins to be garbage (no offence), but i feel that way about any over decorated skin.
dude, you are [b]SO FREAKING TRUE[b]
I really think those skins are impossible to read.

Nice to see someone with the same opinions as me
I use one a friend made for me using a bunch of other skins.
i play with two custom skins: one reddish-pink, and the other one is a kind of blue you'd see in a rafis skin. this is primarily to affect how i play, since red scientifically enhances focus and aggression, while blue suggests a more passive and calm sensation. the skins themselves are not by any means perfect, especially the standard mode, but it is fixable.

i'm also too lazy to add taiko to my red skin.
I'll play with anything so long as the cursor looks good and there's no sliderend circle lol.
