    as John Lennon always said: 'there is nothing new under the sun". He admitted to rejigging a few tunes himself. We are all influenced and take from things we come in contact with. Go for it Jake and Jazzman, you do sterling work. I love Vanilla Sky and this mint theme too.

    There has to be some level of courtesy though, The colour scheme, CSS, layout, etc, is all the intellectual property of Shaun Inman, and aside the probably legal implications, it's poor form to go and take something lock stock without permission, even if it is just a bunch of hex codes. I've been ripped off a few times myself, and it isn't nice seeing your work being plagiarised.

    i had a sim. style arround 1999/2000 on my very old and minimal portfolio .. just boarderless tables and just dark grey and green tones. (i have the screens and the layout somewhere on one of my 32543436434 cd-roms)


    so you suggest me to crush inman's nuts? :D

    at least there is no copyright on colors and arrangements of tables ... its also legal to reproduce code. but not to distribute a (1:1) code of someone elses work.

    the problem is at least ... mint is not a classical graphic design work, its a very minimal arrangement of css tables and a colorsheme (and those 2 "basic components" are available and free 4 all) .


    you could also say ... mark o'sullivan ripped the basic idea of a forum


    ... and this would be also wrong :D

    Any word on whether or not this will be released? I'd really like to see this finished!

    I would ask, but thats just being courteous. He should agree to letting you use it/give it away, which would also be courteous. Its just something nice to do, because like everyone said its just layouts and colors.

    But, If you do ask, and he does say no, he is an ass and id toss it out anyway. Isn't imitation a form of flattery? I would think so. If someone liked my design enough to do this and asked I would be grateful and happy. Not to mention it would most likely open up Mint to a lot of new prospective users (buyers). Which would be good for him.

    Let us know if he was a jerk (or not).

    Rather than asking for a permission that he has no real authority to grant or deny, I would suggest simply notifying him.

    "I liked your Mint theme so much, I made one for Vanilla"

    If he still has a problem, oh well. I doubt he will, though; he's been pretty friendly to the Vanilla project.

    Sorry for being an ass, but is there any progress on this? I'm really looking forward to the release! >.<
  • Options
    I'm sorry, I've been very busy this week and also next week as I'm moving into my new appartment. When I'm settled, I'll continue with this theme :)

    bump

    any news?

    I'm not going to release the Mint style to the public. However, you can just rip the Mint CSS files from the official website as this theme uses the same (x)HTML tags...

    Jazz, hope your new apartment move has gone well.
