Custom User Skins are a lie, to confuse you. R&D is a myth, denied to exist by key members of the Rules Team. Combat has already been added - if you look under the Rules, for combat, you'll find OOF AE. That is classed as Combat by SWC, so we already have combat.
Is there a problem?

http://www.swcombine.com/members/playeradmin/projects/index.php The very first one. It says custom user skins. How is that a lie? And if R&D is a myth, then why is there a skill for it? Thanks for combat info.
R&D won't be released until after combat, which, itself, is not yet complete. Information on either of these does not yet exist beyond that because they have not yet been fully addressed. Production is the current project.
Custom User Skins basically allow you to modify the overall appearance of the website (mostly by using different colours etc.). This is done by using the CSS editor under Account Settings (e.g. I currently have orange links with my grey skin).
