A minor thing really, but since we're on the topic of design/theme update, couldn't the phpBB logo be tweaked ever so slightly too to look a bit cleaner and inline with current trends? I believe dropping the shadows/highlights creates the cleaner look.

When you glance at Hanakin's proposed style guidelines, it sort of stands out as being a little inconsistent with the rest of the cleaner style. The brand is something that tends to set the tone for the entire design.

Something like this?
(also note, de-cluttering of tagline to be consistent with a clean look)

I much prefer that to the current logo, though!
