    Nice. What would be even nicer would be a Drupal theme. If then only could release a PSD for this theme :)

    @ovidiu: the designer forgot to remove these ads from the theme. The link was updated – the theme now doesn’t contain ads. Sorry for inconvenience!

    Really Nice Work i love it :)

    I always find it a bit janky when there’s a big bold “sidebar” running through the middle of the page. It feels unbalanced. It’s attractive, but unbalanced.

    A suggestion: Can you give away some WordPress admin themes?

    I find it hard to find some good admin themes that are a little less “WordPress-heavy”, so I would love to see that here =)

    Nice theme thanks

    @Vitaly Friedman & Sven Lennartz

    thx. I am not overly sensitive, but as soon as I find ads that were not mentioned in a themes description, I delete it. I have found so many of these seemingly free themes and then some day you notice they contain hidden links or ads :-(

    now I will check out the theme again, it looked pretty promising.

    Ok, do you really want an opinion? besides the its good, it sucks opinions? The theme looks good, but also seems to be made in a haste. In 5 minutes I can give this theme a customizable header and besides what use is the hardcoded Twitter thinggy in the right sidebar? Its hardcoded to the author’s twitter account. And what about the big advertisement for his website udnerneath the twitter thinggy? Can I remove it? haven’t found anything concerning this… I guess I’ll give it a customizable header and widgetize the right sidebar too.

    @ Adam S. As a designer of 20+ years I don’t find the bold “sidebar” “janky” at all. It nicely separates out the completely irrelevant stuff on the far right from the main content. So, reading from left to right you get … big main content (important) stuff, sidebar (semi-important) nav stuff you need to “understand” the site, and then a narrow column of unimportant (i.e., it doesn’t need to be read to get through the site) stuff. I like it. Although it does strike me too as a bit, I don’t know, “heavy” for my own tastes.

    Is there a live preview? :S

    Very good theme, I like it !

    i was really imprezz-ed with it at first sight and i immediately wanted to try it on only to discover that knowing how to tweak themes is a required pre-requisite for you to make this theme personal.
    – understandably the title banner have to be customized but why does it link back to another site?
    – rss button uses the author’s feed and is also hardcoded.
    – the right sidebar is hardcoded individually for the post, page, index, archive, and image attachement pages.

    this is a very nice design and i hope it can be improved to lessen, if not eliminate, code tweaking.

    the giant ribbon-kind-o-stuff on the sidebar is just not a good idea…
