    I've got a real love/hate thing going on with it, it's absolutely gorgeous and I love the colours (apart from the new post colour, would that be better green?) and the style is absolutely immense, it just doesn't quite feel like Vanilla at times, you know?

    Needless to say, I'll almost definately be using it on my site :-)

    Mint and Vanilla are without a doubt my most favourite forum styles on the web, it's going to be a real toughie deciding which one I use :D

    I agree with you blizeH... actually I prefer Vanilla's theme. But this theme is just something different :) I wanted to show the power of Vanilla by creating a real different look, rather then just another style. About the colors, it's just something I copied from Mint. Once the theming is done, I will also create another style which is based on Vanilla's colorscheme.

    jazzman this is really good work. I like it little bit more then default theme. But just because my forum users are used to standard phpbb forum layout. Please keep up with good work :D
  • Options
    Thanks for doing it jazzman. You were right. Even if it's not something you like better, it gives other people inspiration and it's dang fun to do :)

    I will say, however, that he font is one to two sizes smaller than I usually like, but other than that, a more vanilla like color scheme would be really nice.

    I think the style looks great. I like that it's so different from the original Vanilla, and I like how it shows that Vanilla can pretty easily become a punbb clone.
  • Options
    Ahh, but can punbb become a Vanilla clone? I thought not!

    Probably not, but PunBB is still an awesome forum, and probably way faster than Vanilla...
  • Options
    Uh... PunBB it's sth like "phpBB clone" for me. I never know what people like in this scrypt :/
  • Options
    PunBB is certainly a very different animal to PhpBB. PunBB is leagues ahead of PhpBB. It's a good piece of software.

    "Probably not, but PunBB is still an awesome forum, and probably way faster than Vanilla...."

    Sounds like mark's set himself a challenge?! ;-)

    But in all seriousness, I've honestly not noticed any problems with the speed of Vanilla at all, infact, everyone on our board seems to absolutely love it (even those people who you wouldn't really expect to) and says it runs very quickly for them! Although maybe that's partly down to the awesome hosting at Int0rw3b :-)
  • Options
    Definitely 100% to do with the hosting. I hear the back end code is dreadful... :P

    Looks fab apart from the blue! Go on change it to green or something!
  • Options
    The blue is used to highlight new posts. I guess, because it's ugly, you want to read the discussions asap :P

    /ties up Mini puts him in the cupboard

    Ahem.

    I was speaking to Minisweeper earlier, he said he loves the theme to bits, but would prefer it if the blue bits were green.

    ;-)
