Name of the new style

Post by CarpCharacin » Sat Sep 24, 2016 4:45 am

In order for a new style to be created, there must be a name for it. What should it be named? I am thinking that modernsilver might be a good name for the new style.

Seems a bit early to be talking about naming a new theme. :)

I don't think we should tie the name to the code name of the current version, but I do think we should probably move away from the "silver" name, unless we're being very sentimental and want to go with a name with silver in it.

Quite honestly what difference does it make? It is only an identifier and 99.9% of end users know no difference and probably care even less.

phpbbdefaultstyle is probably as good as anything and is exactly what it is.

challenge:

suggest something original that has nothing to do with anything previously. no "silver" no "sub" no "pro"

The new theme will be something completely fresh and 100% new not just an upgrade.

So lets not tie it to something that it is not related to.

If the style is back in blue, how about Steelblue or Deppblue?
Perhaps collect names and do a survey of it and let you decide which user?
