But that's your own decision isn't it? You don't have to do it, it's a free choice. Plenty of mod authors don't make a subsilver2 version and that's their free choice too. Just as it should be a free choice for any board owner to decide if they want subsilver2 and not use the mod, or if it's worth switching to prosilver for.Tom wrote:Therefore, many MOD authors (such as myself) feel compelled to also create and provide edits for subsilver2
Besides if an 'unofficial' subsilver3 will be released and millions of people use it you might feel just as compelled. It's a totally different issue that has nothing to do with keeping subsilver2 supported or not.
MODs should not even be considered in this discussion.
I'm not worried about that at all, but it's not the point. The automatic updater is the point. Getting your questions answered here is the point. Many people will be completely lost without all that.Tom wrote:Also, if you are very much in need of a subsilver2 style for 3.1.x, I am sure that style authors from the community will come together to produce some sort of subsilver2-like style for the new phpBB version (as mentioned previously). It may take some time, but I'm sure it will happen eventually.
