So I agree that the best choice would be to get rid of it. We can still look into building a subsilver3 with CSS and some very few template changes with most stuff inherited.

Users need a clean style, easy to modify and have the look of subsilver (you know with the category header, category footer)!
I know this from first hand as whatever skin i design i follow the template of subsilver2 and people just love it!
I have design x-silver based on prosilver but with the classic look of subsilver2. This is the combination that people love! Including me offcourse!
I think prosilver should be redesigned a little. There are many things inside it that don't work well or it is very difficult to change.
For example if someone try to modify the posting template faces a whole board distruction because there are 4 ( i think) files that being used for the posting template of NEW TOPIC - POST REPLY - NEW PM - SHOW DRAFTS.
You change something and works ok in NEW TOPIC posting template but it ruins the COMPOSE PM posting template.
That was just an example! We need to make it more simple. One file for drafts, one for PM's, one for New Topic - Post Reply. Generally we need to make it simpler to modify.
Excuse me if i judge things but i really want to help in every way i can and i am fully support phpbb community. Trust me on this, if we built a subsilver3 (prosilver with a cleaner code with subsilver look) it will be the best skin ever.
So prosilver too. subsilver2 is not main reason of low phpBB development speed, and every member of PHPBB Team knows it perfectly.It causes extra work during development, that is not helping phpBB's main goal of becoming a better forum software
Not an argument. The same can be said for prosilver! I do not support both templates, I support only one - subsilver2.naderman wrote:It causes extra work for MOD authors to support two very different templates - many don't even bother support both templates
