If it's lack of resources, add a VM limit. Proably drops in the bucket, but we have a PM limit because of resources. And if I remember right, the mass amount of VM's was supposedly one of the reasons why namechanges for some members made the server instacrash.
Edit - Another thing on the skins, with the limit. Give people the option to preview the skins, and the option for them to unlock ones they want/like for a quarter each. Or something.
