Demos should have been shown stand alone, not in Tinyportal. Are we voting for the themes or for Tinyportal??

Also, it didn't let me vote on the last theme.

And it was rather disappointing not to see any semantic display templates.

Does it mater?
All themes work in Tinyportal as of its 1.0.5 beta.

It does matter. I wanted to vote on the actual themes themselves, not with extra layers confusing it all. It's not easy to tell where the tinyportal HTML starts and ends...

Well for now then you could add ";preview" to the end of the url and let tinyportal disable adding the layer.

I just sent a mod to our themers to let them apply it that will add an option for registered users on smfthemes.org to disable the tinyportal or not (which uses the same method as above but a little better).

voted.

for me these themes are too simple, only Kurtlar Vadisi is a little better.

The better view themes are for me of the king bloc...(really)

I don't think Bloc submits his themes to the Theme Site anymore. His choice, I guess. Plus, I'm sure he's busy with Tinyportal 1 Beta 2 and helping to develop the next generation of theme documentation for SMF 2.0.

I do lots more than just complain. But I think in this case it's warranted. This is supposed to be an official competition isn't it? What are the theme demos even doing offsite? You may not expect professionalism, but I do, as do many others I'm sure.

It's just easier to do it that way. When a theme is approved by us here, it is automatically installed on SMFThemes.org without us having to actually do anything over there.

So installing the themes again would just be a waste of our time.
