Shameless Necro Post ^^

I see a lot of people metioning that they miss the old forum theme, as far as i can recall the Ayako original phpbb theme, were AcidTech Blue (though i think i personally used the purple version.)

Now before i go any further i would like to point out the following:
  • I have NO programming knowledge
  • I have no experience making themes
  • I am pretty sure the theme itself is not compatible with joomla/kunena
With this said, if there is a "even a idiot such as myself can do it" way to do, gimme a link or w/e and i will see what i can do.... WITH THAT SAID!

I think the main reasons for the forum decaying were a happenstance of coincidences close together:

  • The irish/renge incident
  • A low activity period
  • First move of the Ayako forums
  • Good game quarter
  • Meh anime quarter
  • (tied to the above) I think this were around the "writer's strike" in Japan?
  • Confusion around the above

Though my reason Personally is different, i can't help but wonder if all of the above were the first tsunami if you will to hit the community. I also happen to remember using quite a while to find FantasyHaven back in 2011 as i *might* have began on the search words "Ayako fansubs forum" to no avail in the beginning.

Also, also: Arguably I felt more... "at home" in the old forums simply because i had been using it for such a long time, and with the layout changes and moves that ended up happening, we might've had a: "new house syndrome", also around...

*pokes the corpse*

What a weird feeling to visit a home that was long abandoned, but still there's someone who comes and wipes the dust.

The reason for the forummove is phpbb is too vulnerable to exploits that let spam bots in
