In the last forum update it broke the main theme again, we are working to fix it. Please let us know if anything else is missing.

Aah! It's so blue!
If it ain't broke, your version is outdated.

You really had me freaked out for a minute. I though we lost everything and this was a stock reinstall of phpbb until I saw that threads were still here.

Paul, I'm working with Brandon to get a new default theme in place, soon. I've done some work for this already.

So I guess Brandon, you don't like red then? Please elaborate here?

I changed the theme to red to buy time for you guys to work on something, that has already taken to long. It took me 10 minutes to update the style to a red one and make a filler banner, don't see what is taking so long for you guys to work something out.

I think it is rather a poor choice to go with blue, and goes against the style of the forum and the website so far, which was chosen to give the feel that the site is not just stuck together haphazardly, which is what it feels like now.

I think we should have stuck to the older style, didn't see any problems with it, beyond the ones that I fixed, ie, spammers signing up.

If you guys are going to put in the effort to re-do the style of the forum, please do so with some respect to how it was put it together in the first place. As such I am not going to change this back to a red theme, but will wait to see what you two end up doing, and hope that the solution will be soon.

I use this one because it is the default theme and is updated everything phpbb is so i know it works(it happens to be blue i did not chose the color). The one that was there turned white and was misaligned otherwise i would have left it blue is not a new color choice.The one you had was red but fixed with and on any wide screen did not look right. Wayne is almost done with the updated that will be similar to what was there in the current theme format that phpbb is useing.
