It took some time getting used to IPB’s very, very different templates, and in the meantime I needed a theme for the new forum. The only way I was sure to make something everyone enjoyed was remaking the most loved theme for the old Forum.
After this decision it all came down to editing templates, and fix everything I didn’t like. In less then 2 weeks I had already finished, and the users loved it.
Here’s a backup link on “The Internet Time Machine”. Since then IPB has made lots of updates and the original theme is no more available on the main site.
