Ok. Well I'm not coding the bloody thing to haul out the first letter and apply colours to it. Too much spaghetti, and I don't fancy that look anyway.

My 2c is people can choose to have an avatar or not, just as people can chose to display avatars or not. Can't see anything wrong with that.

I'm calling feature lock on this thing. I've already been through coding specifically to allow avs or no avs. If anyone wanted avs all the time, they should have called for it back then instead of calling for code to handle both alternatives.

And that’s fine, just that it isn’t anywhere near the default expectation any more.

As for the coloured letters, can’t do worse than Discourse for whom generating the letters on demand was so painful, they made a dedicated service that just served coloured letters on coloured backgrounds, the so-called avatar CDN.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

No good deed goes unpunished / No act of charity goes unresented.

In that case the theme works as intended. I think you did more on this than any other theme designer ever has. For that, we appreciate your effort

That's all that needs to be said. :D

Hi Antechinus, when do you plan on releasing this to the theme site?

At the moment I'm waiting on Arantor to have time to nut out a bit of code. Once that's sorted I'll do all the RTL stuff, and a final check for any glitches, then submit it.

TBH you probably won't notice any difference between the current RC and the finished version. From the perspective of most people, the current RC is effectively a finished product. All that's holding it up is RTL support, which is not going to be relevant to your site anyway (or to most other sites).

But I'll still finish it.

Damn, spend the last 2+ hours going over this topic! GREAT JOB!  8)

Some of the looks of this theme is similar to how I've envisioned Crip Zone themes for 2.1. Been playing with a new dedi for the hosting and getting it situated but will definitely try this out shortly!

Funny how one thing turns into something completely different! The story of my life! LOL I multitask WAY too much, story of my life. But it keeps me busy and I tend to learn a lot more! Once you stop learning, you stop living! ;)
