I was hoping for a new bright them not keeping the same dull one that's been practically from the start
but i could live with the same-ish theme

Just thought I should say, that 95% of the people I asked wanted a port of the current theme, so thats what I've done. I personally love the current theme, well, I should shouldn't I, its my site after-all. My point is, it wasn't easy to port this template over. It took me 7 hours today to do it, and its not XHTML compliant either, but as long as it works I'm not fussed.

phpBB3 should be ready within the next week. Its my x-mas present to the community. Its been waited for, for a very long time, so I'd understand if people don't take me seriously when I say it will be up and running within a week, but it will, you watch.

No. Its hard enough doing 1 theme let alone 2. Every modification I do to one template I'd have to do to the other, so its a very firm no.

The only changes I would make would be changing the... mud green to be greyer, as in Image

I would also suggest enhance the subforum status icons, something like this Image (An envelope probably wouldn't be the ideal choice of post notification icon, but I can't think of anything else on the fly) I've seen too many forums set up by 12-14 year olds with the current no new posts/new post images...

Changing the banner to what you've shown would be awesome, however. I really like the new look (minus above changes), well done.

Looks good.
The PNG's at the top of the screen seem a little untidy around the edges, but other than that it looks great.

Wow, I really like the 2nd update, except for the lack of Apple/Linux (j/k, it doesn't really matter that much... the windows logo is awesome)

Both themes appear great! However, the second tease you posted appears to be the best in comparison to the present and previous; I recommend adapting to this one as a default for BA.

Well, thats the idea of a second update I've been working with mrpijey and several other people from the forum on MSN to get things just how they should be.

Well that was a pointless post, seeing as it's already shown ON THE FIRST POST. Looks like its lost it's exclusiveness too.

Oh, and you might want to remove this, again because its ON THE FIRST POST.
