I thought with phpbb3 we finally would get real new generation rounded styles... but 99% of the styles released so far just look like those old ugly php2 themes. But maybe that's just me.
And by the way. It has a reason for the phpbb team to move the poster name and avatar to the right. Because that's the only right place for it. (The human eye always looks at top left at first, so you don't need useless stuff like an avatar on that important place but the CONTENT of the post).
I've made a few based on prosilver mate and in truth they were really stressful to make, getting graphics to work as tiling backgrounds in all directions may seem easy but getting them to look nice at the same time is a whole different story. Prosilver based styles are seriously hard work and until phpBB3 goes gold I don't think many people are willing to put the effort in. We're going to need to mod' any and all styles we create when phpBB3 does go gold, considering it is still really in trials it's pretty cool there's those of us out here making any styles as yet.
How can you say phpBB2 styles are ugly, what a funny thing to say.
