< report >I noticed that the "Jingai Makyou (peach-orange)" theme you can change on the edit profile page does not actually feature a Jingai Makyou character. I found that the Danbooru post of the source image is tagged as "original" and not as a Jingai Makyou character. Though the character has long red hair like Ignis from Jingai Makyou it is clearly not her.
link <-Danbooru post of source image.
link <-Screenshot of Ignis vndb page for reference.
Not sure if this is the correct place to point this out or if it is already known. Perhaps someone can pass this along to whoever manages the themes?

< report >Everything on VNDB is a lie. ...but if it's not Jingai Makyou, what do I call the skin?

Also, updated breakdown:
3178 carnevale
2872 saya
2074 tsukihime
2019 tsukihime_02
1492 fate_01
1185 fate_02
1001 air
980 grey
912 ever17_01
883 term
873 taka
745 lb_02
693 seinarukana
644 teal
630 higu
584 lb
532 primitive
334 eiel
286 higanbana
251 aselia_01

EDIT: As for why it's called "eiel":
A skin made using an image that I still haven't found the source of, only clue is a hard to read mark the original bears, reading something like "EIeL (or ELeL) the 10 yerS old girl"
Guess it's not related to any game we have in the database, or maybe it is and we don't know yet...

< report >Ugh, even vndb aesthetic cannot escape the flood that is Nasu fans. I'll take Satsuki though, if not only that I can't stand anything other than the default theme.

< report >I've noticed that some themes like 'grey' have the same color spoiler indicator for minor/major spoilers. Is there a way to change it while still retaining the overall theme?

< report >In case anyone was still wondering, I poked around the image source on Wayback Machine. Seems like it was one of those general moe art/Flash animation sites from the early 2000s, and "Elel" (エルエル) the "virtual net idol" was the main mascot-type character. Various people did guest art over the years, and the theme's image is one of those.
