    Your changes will be over-written the next time you upgrade WordPress or the theme. For this reason, it is recommended that you consider creating a child theme for your customisations.

    So why not just rename it and use it as a new theme?

    sure, i guess it isn’t really twentyten anymore. are their any legal implications if i want to offer to others?

    Absolutely none.

    Turning it into your own theme so that it can sit alongside the original Twenty Ten theme can be quite important. If you ever post about display problems, the chances are that you will be asked to switch back the the Twenty Ten theme as part of the troubleshooting process.

    Also, if your custom theme is ever automatically deactivated, WP will try to activate Twenty Ten as the fallback. so it is quite important to keep an original copy of the theme in your themes folder.

    i think i’m gonna call it “darkmatter” theme.

    would twentyeleven be a bit rich?

    I’d avoid that name as I’ve heard rumours there’s a Twenty Eleven theme in the pipeline. “Dark Matter” seems a good name to me. Suits the theme.
