There's a lot going on here, and I haven't really had the proper time to read up on all of it and so I'm sorry if I ask questions that have already been answered, but I have some general curiosities as a lover of phpBB3 and long past BB2.
The biggest issue that I seem to have with the forum is styling. Lord knows that I love Arty. He's the sh!t and I've told him more than once before, lol -- but it's not so much the styling that is the issue, but how the bones of the system should be skinned, and not the styles that should be modded. I find this difficult to run a forum when some people enjoy one style while others another -- and as an admin, I'm sure we've all had that issue before.
Is the new system going to "mod the bones" of php, while the skin is an over-lay to whatever comes? Or are we stuck doing the same thing, over and over again?
It took me nearly a week to mod Arty's Artodia Elegance theme -- everyone loves it, but some prefer other pieces for their phones, and I don't have the time or patience to remod that skin as well, lol. Call me lazy, but I can't justify it.
Frankly, if Arty could remaster the prosilver with all the trimmings, but keep the elegance of Artodia, I'd be all <3
Also, the little boy in me wants to know when Christmas is coming -- when BB4 is looking to peek it's head out.
