(Hopefully the last naval gazing post of the year...)
Broadly speaking, people fell into four categories.
- People who had never heard of Svbtle and didn't see a problem with using a similar theme.
- People who had heard of Svbtle and didn't like the ethos behind the platform, so didn't like the theme.
- People who were vociferous in their hatred of anyone who tried to impinge on a design classic sent from the gods themselves.
- People who just couldn't give a shit.
As I said before, I didn't realise that Svbtle was such a big deal in certain circles. Some online communities tend towards the perpetual drama of high-school. I can't be bothered with that - it's the same reason I don't get involved in Wikipedia and other cliques.
So over the next few days, I'll be changing my theme to something that keeps the simplicity of Svbtle, adds some features that I felt were missing (like archive), and - hopefully - prevents anyone from having a hissy-fit online that I'm betraying the brotherhood and that they've been deeply mislead by my style-sheet.
