Master_Cylinder, this idea is about re-designing the current style, no whether or not you think the updated one "looks as bad". If you have constructive criticism, then that's fine. Bashing by saying we're going "in the wrong direction" is not constructive. ;)

Opinions on how bad the design looks is constructive, imho.

If you feel this way, explain why you feel this way. If applicable, provide facts and figures of other projects that went this direction. Saying it sucks helps nobody. :roll:

Well, in 3.1, prosilver is responsive, using html5 and css3 features. If someone likes to have completely new style, they can create one and propose to be implemented as a default one.

Or maybe (just in case there are lots of frontend developers having nothing to do) phpBB could bring new style every now and then, just like Wordpress does. However, a team responsible for that should be created.

Kind if my plan, we need something new and the best way is to create it through the style submission and get the communities feedback on phpBB.com through it development.

I have started laying the groundwork for such an endeavor https://github.com/hanakin/phpBB-StyleGuide the focus at the moment being establishing a framework to base a rewrite of the code on top of. With design coming in to play later on.

I agree with some of the commenters above though we need a very simple theme with a very small CSS footprint to base things off.
