The dark side might be small in numbers but they are large in commitment and creativity. BTW, I have no personal investment in saying this because my middle aged eyes can't even read the red on black. It looks like a blur to me. They like it though and it means a lot to them. I hope you'll keep it for them. I believe it helps them to contribute to the cause of truth and justice. This is my humble opinion after twenty years with posting boards. I won't repeat it. I just wanted to say it once so you would know how I felt.

The first person to "win" if we do not upgrade to 3.1 would be me: zero work to do. :mrgreen: I've already written somewhere, can't remember where, that when the time comes I'll discuss this matter with Skep and FbN. I'll probably have a pretty big list of pros and cons by then. If upgrading to 3.1 were a "no choice" situation, I would not even be discussing it. The only decision I've made so far is that, even if v.3.1 final is released tomorrow (and it won't be), I will not discuss this matter with the other admins before the end of the summer (for those of us in the northern hemisphere).

BUT...as I understand it... The Dark Side is more than a choice. It's actually a state of BEING for certain PMF posters. ss-) ( cough! H9) :thinking: You know, Simon and Garfunkel were Dark Siders, too... Remember their famous song.. Sounds of Silence Style of Darkness????? Image SING: "Hello Dark Style, my old friend: I've come to log on with you, again. Red on Black is so worth keeping! wa-)) Dropping Dark will cause much weeping! It's a version.... that is planted in my brain It should remain! The much-loved Style of Darkness..."

A musical trip down memory lane-- all'italiana :itaflag2:...from Four-elevenlina's "Fred Buscaglione Fifties Collection!" :D First up, a fun video and song entitled "Che bambola!" (= "What a doll!") https://www.youtube.com/results?search_ ... ione&sm=12 :thinking: There is also..a song from the sixties... The refrain? "É una bambolina che fa "no no no", é così carina ma fa "no no no.."(It's a little doll that says no, no, no. She's so cute, but she says "no, no, no." :nonono:) Gotta love those lyrics!! :uahaha: Let's see if Clander can recall these tunes! :yahoo:

Jw, yes, that "habitual poster" sounds too much like "habitual user". The term "regular poster" did come to mind while I was writing that chat message but I also thought that "habitual poster" was more appropriate considering the "addiction" to using the dark style I must take into consideration. :mrgreen:

Ten of those 20 are habitual posters. I know that those 10 (20?) consider the dark style a "feature". I've always been a "I don't care what color it is! It just has to work!" kind of guy. So the idea of dropping the Subsilver2 based styles is only a tech matter for me but I also know that those 10/20 users would not like to see those styles removed. Also, I need a reason to upgrade to 3.1. I never ugrade just because it's the "latest version". What exactly does the new version have to offer to the admins, mods and users that would justify dropping the dark style? That is what I'll be looking at during the beta phase of 3.1.

PHPBB 3.1 Beta1 is on the PHPBB server (no public announcement yet, probably tomorrow): https://download.phpbb.com/pub/release/ ... e/3.1.0-b1 If the final version comes out at the same time as Nencini's report, I won't be touching the PMF server for many weeks. 200 pages? 400? 600? 800? As you know fully well, that 'many weeks' could become 'many months'. All that to say that, unless the beta phase of PHPBB 3.1 is super quick, the decision to drop the subsilver2 based styles or not will be made only after the summer.
