Do you think having to many styles on a board is a bad thing to me that just seems to be asking for trouble especially if you plan on adding more mods latter...

Well, it could be asking for trouble. Though if you do something like take subSilver and just edit it with different color sets, you wouldn't have problems. In other words, if all styles share the same structure and just use a different CSS, mods should generally not be an issue.

I never understood why folks felt compelled to provide more than one style. In every board I have run I create a single style, usually something that matches the corresponding web site. Adding more styles just creates more work, and I doubt that most folks make a decision on whether they're going to continue using the site based on styles.

I know I use to have a problem with that custom profile mod until I figure out that you had to install the styles first before you installed that mod actually I believe there were few other mods that acted like that also...

So I guess its always best to install all the styles first that you are going to use if you are going to use more then one style or be using any mods...

I believe the best thing to do is use one style only, preferably a personalized style. This can be an existing style modified by yourself, or one you developed from scratch.

If you look at my board for instance you'll see a subSilver style turned into something quite different.
Something similar has been done on this board here.
