No, blue is great. Better to change "prosilver" to "problue", than to change colours of the prosilver.

Uuum.. this never come to my mind. Could someone from the styles team or any staff in charge as to why it was named prosilver?
Was it because subsilver was written already and you said to just change the sub to pro, and keep silver there?

I agree that i must be changed to something like problue. But... Lost of people are used to the style named as prosilver.
I guess people will have to be used that 3.1 has had the default stylename changed. :)

Nothing to do with the color. The original was named subsilver so the name is derived from that.

Thought so... But i dont see how a decision like this was made considering the style wasnt silver/grey coloured at all.

And the name "proBlue" has already been used by another style.

I dont think that matters much. The style was written for 3.0.0 and all it has different is a small improvement on its header.
It wasnt even popular. 126 downloads from 03 Apr 2008. The downloads are from stg and .com

If you read the Designing prosilver page, you will see that the original concept of the style was more silver than blue. I assume that the name was chosen first, and then the style evolved but the name was not altered. The style name will not be changed; it has not been an issue before, and it is not really an issue now.

this is not a big issue but it is a mistake name...

prosilver built in 2008 and we are in 2013 i think this style is very simple. i think the default style of phpbb is not a 2013 style and its not a next generation style.
it is better think about a professional style.

see the vbulletin mybb ipboard default style and they are beautifuler than prosilver. i think phpbb core is moving to future but phpbb styles not.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. ;)

Renaming might have more impact than you think, simply because there are so many styles that use template inheritance with prosilver as a base. All those would break instantly when you rename this.
