I haven't been around much in the last two weeks due to family & the holidays so this may have already come up. It looks like PearlDrop has closed down Art-n-skins. I saw a post several days (or weeks) ago in which she was contemplating closing up shop. I just tried the site and I'm directed to one of "those" pages. It's really a shame. There's quite a few familiar names there and it was one of the few places I could upload my photography in a "class" environment. The forums weren't active at all, but the uploads were.
Thanks to PearlDrop, JamMeister, Storm and the others who made it one of my "Favs"
Sorry you had to close it down.
