I hate to say it, but that's the kind of feedback that doesn't help
A great amount of work went into prosilver and many people like it (just see its release topic). Now, if there are specific things that your users complained about, then we would like to hear them, but this "change the phpbb3 default style" approach doesn't move us anywhere. Change it to what?
Sorry i think that came across wrong. I personally liked pro silver it looks very modern.
How ever my community started on phpbb2, now when i upgrade to phpbb3 they dint like it either. Why? Simply because it was different i think. I then changed the style and when it came to update to 3.0.6 the style wasnt updated so i used prosilver. Now they didnt want to lose the style i changed to which is why i think they were so against prosilver. At the end of the day you have to keep them happy.
They complained that pro silver was to difficult to navigage, they didnt like the poster detail being on the right, it was hard to get to grips with, confused them and "they just prefer the old style" Im confident that if they used it for a while they would of got used to it just like they did when i first updated to phpbb3.
At the end of the day thats why styles are released, i understand that pro silver took a lot of work and i appricate everything you do for phpbb. But if you dont like it, change it. Prosilver is a good style but it isnt for everyone.
Thats my personal view.
