Installing mods shouldn't be a problem as the html files wont be modified. (except for the header and footer.)

I'll second the responsive request. The native customizations are really nice.

Im not really in a rush to release it so I can make it the best it can be, but Im almost done with the imageset so it's getting closer...

After this it goes to testing, to find any bugs, ect. so it's hard to say when it will be done...

I see you put "Developed by John Rolson" in the footer, although most of those "Options for Admins" are ripped from Absolution and Supernova.

Please learn to come up with your own features.

Im not trying to take credit for any of the code, im just using it because it's useful and saves me time.
Sharing code makes all styles better... Sounds like your trying to stop the advancement of phpbb themes.

Anyway Im done making themes. Everyone can just go without them I guess... :(

However, I find it ridiculous that someone has a hissy fit over the sharing of code on an open-source script (phpbb)
when basically they are borrowing code from prosilver to make their own themes in the first place...

Thanks for killing phpbb one step further...

Not exactly. You'll find on my website many useful styling tutorials, in additional to a "no strings attached" dark imageset release.

Had you PM'd me and said "Hey C, can I use your code in one of my new styles?" I'd have said sure, would appreciate a small mention at least in some kind of read me file, but to just 'take' them without any credit at all? Not cool.
