Today was the day I fancied both to continue and discontinue Nord after a long hiatus.
Because I wasn't around theming in the 3.10 cycle I missed and forgot that the border-image property no longer works everywhere; making the refresh I put so much effort into to bring to Nord 1.8 utterly useless and sadly might be ending the journey for the most popular GS theme in dA.
Unfortunately, the CSS capabilities in GS were far too limited to begin with so I can't even replicate the graphics with a mere box-shadow, which can be used only once, and without images I'm only left with the option to simply recolor and keep it simple ... totally not my style.
One option I see is to learn JS and extension-making and extend the theming capabilities (I think it can be done) but I'm far less experienced right now and the ones who can do it are making pretty unimaginative extensions (no offense).
I still have some ideas to test but currently making Nord 1.12 like I designed it last year is NOT possible. I'll consider some modifications but that would probably suck.
Lastly, I'm not saying this for you to hate on GNOME, I don't know what motivated them to cripple it and I want to know why but I respect the excellent effort they put into the releases. This post is an announcement and an explanation not intended to spark a hate war on anyone. So keep that in mind while commenting , please.
