Are the stickies here still useful or should they be replaced with something else? If something else, what?

Due to continuous changes, YATT seems like a near impossibility.... every time I think about attempting to build from scratch I get migraines. As a mostly-retired theme developer, I vote mcdavis's "Notes on Testing Themes" thread to be stickied.

Second vote for mcdavis thread.

Unfortunately I'm to busy with work and trying to update my themes to work with... Don't know, maybe Firefox 39?
I hope after that to get time to update the YATT article...

Not so curious. I view via a 'new posts' link, which lists new posts in all forums (wish I could edit which ones were shown...). To view the stickies, I'd have to go to the specific forum in question, which, of course, I tell myself I'll do when I get through the new messages, but never remember to do. #-o

Ok, released "Firefox nightly theme changes" . I bookmarked it in my "Stickies folder" in case we want to find it again. "Notes on Testing Themes" is now a sticky.

I started some YATT-style illustrations way back when Jorge was requesting new Theme Dev documentation.... but they keep changing things so I'm not sure where to go with that.

Edit: 2013 version of that illustration:

A combination of a new YATT and "Notes on Testing Themes" would work as long as there were links back and forth. The original YATTS was a living thread, the stuff on the first few pages became gibberish later on. 4.0 and Jorge sucking up to "deemphasizing" themes movement from his paymasters killed it. There isn't a reason to not try again.
