SUBSILVER2 RETIREMENT

Post: # 2541Post falkor

This is a warning notice regarding the continued use of subSilver2

About 1/2 or more of users on this site, are using the subSilver2 template

Sadly, phpBB engineers are planning to cease support for subSilver2 and this may effect several other styles on this site, because in truth …. There are only really 2 ground based styles, 'prosilver' or 'subSilver2'

Any other styles outside of those, are actually built using them "as a base"

So … in the future ONLY prosilver (and other styles built using prosilver) will be guaranteed

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

It means that users who are currently in subSilver2 may lose that style

WHAT ELSE?

It also means that users who are currently in a style built using subSilver2, may lose that style too

MEANING?

In the future there could be a few members who suddenly sign in one day, to see that they are looking at a website that no longer has subSilver2 or any style built using subSilver2

WHERE IS THE ORIGIN OF THIS INFORMATION?

Right here >> http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 8&start=60

I LOVE SUBSILVER2, I don't want to lose it

I'm sorry - when the next upgrade comes, it will be gone

IF I AM USING SUBSILVER2 WHAT SHOULD I DO?

You are free at anytime to change your style via UCP > Board preferences

SHOULD I CHANGE MY STYLE?

That is up to you

WHAT IF I DON'T CHANGE MY STYLE?

All users who are in "SubSilver2" or any style built on "SubSilver2" when the upgrade occurs, will safely and reliably be transferred quite smoothly into "prosilver"

No accounts will be damaged or lost through any member changing or not changing styles by any given deadlines

QUESTIONS?

Anybody have questions on this?
