It is short sighted and you assume too much. None of his modifications are free. Now as for his vision..it does not take into account numerous years of complaints and requests by members of this community. It doesn't even note the information in this thread. I was willing to pay him and the reality of it is he doesn't need your defense because he wasn't insulted. The viewpoint is hardly enlightened in front of the facts and it needs pointing out.

Regardless of what the style was intended to do it falls far short. IT IS NOT ADEQUATE for a supported release in this day and age. Only a technocrat thinks its functional and "good to go". The majority of forum users are laymen...They don't know markup or BB code. They don't even know that BB Code exists so that makes replying to threads a frustrating experience. They want basic functionality such as updating their profiles and reading private messaging. Also a wise technician does not say what users should do. A wise technician does what users want... This is the main reason that xenforo and other forum softwares has risen and loads of customers, including cpanel and digital point, have left vbulletin. There is a arrogance in the way things are run and built. The majority are mobile users and will remain so. End of story.

A wise business gives people what they want. Its called supply and demand. There is high demand but no supply.

No defense intended. Just making a point that most developers know when a platform has run its coarse and know when to stop development on said platform.

I agree and I personally bought a vb5 license and i'd love to use it. Except vb5 doesn't allow many of the popular plugin function we use on 4.2.X to be implemented on the new version.

There are lots of legacy users out there. More on vb4 than on vb3.X and vb4 is still supported officially... A responsive mobile skin for vb4 would be profitable (with no competition) and it would extend the life of vBulletin. People are jumping ship to other brands...

That's a sad thing.

So you're saying not to do business with him cause i clearly said it wasn't an insult. btw, You seem to have a thing for me...engaging me as often as possible.

patronize [pey-truh-nahyz, pa‐] - verb patronized, patronizing.
1. to give (a store, restaurant, hotel, etc.) one's regular patronage; trade with.

You know, I can quote dictionaries, too, if you need help with context (note: this is just an example for patronizing speech). Merriam-Webster, in this case.
patronize: to talk to (someone) in a way that shows that you believe you are more intelligent or better than other people

No mam... absolutely not. Your definition is entirely incorrect. It wasn't condescending...it was a registration of facts.

Oh, come on. Even the page you copied your definition from gives you this:
2: to behave in an offensively condescending manner toward:
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/patronize

And of course your posts are condescending, and as you can see in this thread, I'm not the only one who thinks so.

Anyway, you may just play games with yourself, now.

My vb3 responsive theme is based on the original vb3 templates and layout, so you can access normal user cp - attached screen - and no problem of using add on - but maybe later add on need to re-style. Youtube video also responsive.
Some of us really appreciate your efforts for the vB3.x community.

And unlike the $500 no-name site (linked in one of the earlier posts), you're somebody that many of us already know. We respect and enjoy working with you. You've always done excellent work for reasonable rates. I was relieved to find this post just now, as we now have a theme option from a quality coder. Too many "responsive vBulletin themes" have been outright coding abortions.

The one being referenced is a fluid style. It will detect mobile versions and display accordingly.

If responsive is what you're looking for, that's a whole different ball game and would mean that it would literally adjust content and design from desktop to mobile using the same style. For something like that, you usually want a custom solution.

Thank you for kind words, I have updated my vb3 responsive style from javascript detection to media queries only. You can see here

I'm in desperate need of a mobile style for vB 4.2.X. The mobile application is full of bugs. driving me absolutely nuts.
I do now have vb4 responsive style in my shop
