I should have posted something like this a long, long time ago, but if I wasn't so utterly disillusioned by the actions of so many people, I wouldn't have felt the need to kill and walk away from the ForumImages<dot>com web site!
- Whether ForumImages<dot>com is dead or alive at this time (or at any point in the future) is irrelevant, but please feel free to remove the hyperlink to the site and simply leave the "FI Theme" alone.
- I do require that I am credited, a simple;
in the readme/release notes will suffice. This not only applies to any updated or derived themes, but to any images/code used as part of another theme/project.Images and/or theme (originally) created by Darren Burnhill.
- I don't want any link to either my profile here or my web site(s), see below.
- Please have some respect for the sheer amount of effort, time and skills I contributed to phpBB (and numerous related projects) and don't contact me for help doing this, that or the other. Offering money is no good, if you want to part with some, give it to the phpBB team, they deserve it.
- Q: May I Use Your Code/Images with Project XXX?
A: Yes, but only meeting the relevant requirements above as well as the code/images being free to download and use.
- Q: I Want XXX Theme updating or I Need A Theme That Looks Like..., Can I Pay You?
A: See point 4 in the list above.
Q: Do You Still Have An Interest In Themes And/Or Images?
- Q: Have You Updated Your Themes For The Latest Versions Of phpBB2?
A: I still use phpBB and so the answer is yes, but not all.
- Q: Have You Made Any New Themes?
A: Yes and I have substantially re-written the base templates.
- Q: What About phpBB3?
A: I have it installed on localhost and it's very impressive on a number of counts. It makes it possible/practical to generate the themes I couldn't release for 2.x due to the nightmare that support would have been. I can still use it without a database and so it looks promising for future use/development work.
- Q: Has Time And Age Tempered You Or Are You Still An Obstinate PITA?
- A: Yes and Yes.
I would like to thank phpBB and many of its members for the opportunities it has afforded me to acquire valuable skills and experience.
P.S. Could a member of the team please make this a Sticky so that as many people as possible are aware of my wishes?
