Under the consideration that not even everyone on the phpBB teams knows what the new style looks like, or even the two newly hired developers, I highly doubt that you've been "briefed" about the new style.

BioAlien, it wasn't a 'briefing' I gave you but more a request not to discuss further the 'insight' into the old admin mockup you seem to have aquired - however, there is nothing new now that you know that hasn't recently been added to the CVS.
The final release will only include one style for the admin area, which hasn't been finalised so no one yet knows what it will finally look like.

NeoThermic, I never stated Tom gave me access to the new style or the fact that he's restricting it from the phpBB team. All I said is I've been "briefed" about what I have sent to him with regards to the new style. It has been settled now and I will continue to block said materials from my forums. You shouldnt assume things without knowing the facts!

Tom, I appreciate you clearing up the situation with your post above!

*sigh*

I think you need to understand what you said in context to the defintion of the word 'briefed'

You said: 'Tom has already briefed me regarding the new style'

The defintion of briefed is:
# To summarize.
# To give instructions or preparatory information to

Thus, your line, combined with the defition of the word, reads that you have been told summarised information reguarding the new style. I'm not the only one who thought this, I was just the first to post what was being thought.

As above, that is not what you said; had you of said that, I wouldn't of said anything. But then, if you had said the information came from a file you sent Tom, it wouldn't sound so special would it?

And that’s the reason why despite administratoring and moderating multiple forums, I tend to post very little. :mrgreen:
