I hear what your saying though and totally agree. I had these over-sized document node icons and had to knock-up something quickly acting as placeholders so wanted those replaced asap. I figure, someone will have a use for the orbs when they make they're comeback.
Sure. Make me an offer. The alternative is it will be another custom style when it's completed that will either be binned/deleted like the previous 3 custom styles I've designed. Joking about making me an offer, the style is me just tinkering around I don't release styles.
I'm starting on the thread_view area trying some shadow effects on the TitleBar enhancement which I designed in photoshop. Requires Yet another template edit though.
