I happen to have jumped into Penny Arcade Forums a couple of times now and I find their discussions & threads pagination a beautiful, convenient one. It's not Vanilla by default, right?
It's a customized version of the default Vanilla pagination - nothing but a bit of CSS and JS.

You won't really need programing knowledge, but you definitely will need to understand how to edit CSS rules.
Download Firebug for Firefox, and then follow any of the online tutorials to see how it works.
Then create your own custom theme in Vanilla, and play with how changing the css rules changes the appearance.
I created a custom_css theme which gives examples of the common css elements you might change in Vanilla 2.0.18.
Alternatively, browse through the themes on here, and choose one closest to Penny Arcade.
No, it is a custom design.
However, there is nothing stopping you from working out how to emulate it.
Firebug, or a similar tool would help you with that.
Thank you all, but I have nearly no programming knowledge. Can you hint any ways I can do that?
its not that easy EdelAli.
But start off with some sort of IDE and then use firefox / chrome and get to grips with firebug or chrome tools.
Perhaps create a html page, a blank css file locally and begin playing with css structure and learning from some online tutorials.
Practice makes perfect
