The problem with this, though, is that have felt no need to move away from subsilver2 and most users expected (quite reasonably, in my opinion) that subsilver2 would not be dropped without significant public discussion and prior notice -- neither of these happened unfortunately.DavidIQ wrote:Thing is they've had time, ever since phpBB3 came out. To me the fact that there is a bit more ss2 styles than prosilver styles just means that there was some transitioning from phpBB2 (subsilver) to phpBB3 (prosilver) and during that transition there have been users favoring ss2 just because that's what they were used to in the previous version. Thus I think we'd have a hard time saying not to remove subsilver2 from 3.1.
Regarding your reasoning behind the fact that there are more subsilver2 styles than prosilver, I understand where your thinking is coming from, but I am very hesitant to draw such conclusions without having actually done some research/surveying into the matter first. The fact of the matter is that we do not know why users are not adopting prosilver, and in order to proceed in a reasonable matter, this information needs to be gathered. Until it has happened, I do not see how we can remove subsilver2 with a clean conscience.
