The increasing number of new registrations from temporary email accounts and free email accounts caused me to delete all of the accounts on my site and also close my site to new registrations.  Although my site is basically used for working on my new theming system, it would be nice to have those new features that you are describing in your post.  All of the RN sites that I visit have been closed down because let's face it, Nuke, in general, has died on the vine.  But, if RN could get added to the large list of software in Softaculous it might help bring it back.  I noticed PHP-Nuke is added.

It's a shame that so many users left RN.  But I've kept my site running to show my PMC Theming System (PMCTS) that I continue to work on.  Think about creating a new theme by just adding simple CSS to the style sheet.  I have about 30 themes available to new members but I am not going to open my site back up due to the problems I mentioned in the first paragraph.  So, these enhancements may cause me to open it up for new registrations.  
 
Here are some things I've done with my theming system thus far:
 
- Forum files and theme.php is the same across all themes and can be installed into any theme and still show the same style across the entire theme.
- Download and Your Account areas both match the theme.
- Simple CSS is used to create the site and I have added a new CSS page to the style.  Builder.css. RN users can create their own theme in just minutes by simply creating a button (utility found on my site) file to obtain the needed code to copy and paste in the builder.css page.  
- And more .....
 
 
The CSS below is basically a theme. The code in the first line should be broken down so that each area can be fine tuned. I bunched them together for display here only.  Look at my site's Home page for a demo, if anyone here wants to become a member send me a PM and I'll open it up for you to register. -->  [url=http://]Papa Mike Creations[/url]
 
The following is only added because hopefully it will just be available for anyone coming here to read Kguske's post and not to be commented on.  It's included in a news column here and on my Home page (see link above).
 
.main-bg, .bg, .news-bg, .foot-bg, .forum-bg, .option, .rcorners, .blocks, .blockcontent, .blockcontainer  {
border-top: 1px solid #000;
background: #382e2e;
background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, from(#170808), to(#382e2e));
background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #170808, #382e2e);
background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #170808, #382e2e);
background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #170808, #382e2e);
background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #170808, #382e2e);
padding: 8.5px 17px;
-webkit-border-radius: 5px;
-moz-border-radius: 5px;
border-radius: 3px;
color:#FFF;
text-align: center;
margin: 0 auto;
font-family: UpperEastSide;
font-size: 2em;
}
 
Below is the CSS for all mouseover buttons. Notice that all code is repetitious throughout the theme.
 
.quick-link {
border-top: 1px solid #000;
background: #382e2e;
background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, from(#170808), to(#382e2e));
background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #170808, #382e2e);
background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #170808, #382e2e);
background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #170808, #382e2e);
background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #170808, #382e2e);
padding: 8.5px 17px;
-webkit-border-radius: 5px;
-moz-border-radius: 5px;
border-radius: 3px;
color:#CCC;
text-align: center;
margin: 0 auto;
}
 
.quick-link:hover {
border-top-color: #171502;
background: #171502;
color: #CCC;
}
 
.quick-link:active {
border-top-color: #000;
background: #000;
}
 
- Some of the code above can be removed.
- Fonts, gradients, colors and all of the other effects are customized by changing the CSS values.
  -- Fonts can be found and imported from Google Fonts.
  -- Gradients can be created by using the "Button Maker" utility found on my home page.
-  in-depth instructions will be included when released, and it will be eventually.
 
I added all of this about my theming system just in an attempt at letting people know if and when the changes that were spelled out in Kguske's post.  And also to maybe entice new users to register knowing that they can create their own up-to-date look for RN.
