I've recently started to use PATH_THIRD_THEMES in my config file, but i was wondering if there was a community consensus on where this folder should live and be called?

I've not seen or heard any chatter about this, but I definitely prefer to keep all directories and files which shouldn't be replaced during an EE upgrade in my /assets directory like this.
If I can place /system below root I leave the system third_party directory there for better security.
If I can't place /system below the root...
Third party /system files:
Third party /themes files:
Master config settings:
$env_config['path_third_themes'] = $base_path . '/assets/third_party/themes/'; $env_config['url_third_themes'] = $base_url . '/assets/third_party/themes/'; /* If system directory is not below root, uncomment and ensure directory exists */ // $env_config['third_party_path'] = $base_path . '/assets/third_party/system/';
