    The forum seems sort of bland.. it could use a little more pizazz.. (I can't believe i just used that word) Anyways.. could an official contest be held to create a sort of "theme" for the forums? or have an option where users could select between a few themes..? Just a thought

    no problem. Well, gimper is one of the users and the admin and therefore owner of this forum. I personally like the idea, but there is nobody besides gimper who could do and approve such a contest. so you should private message (pm) him.

    They're forum software you install on a server to make a forum. Both of them have unique features, but I prefer MyBB over PhpBB

    In PhpBB, you can't do anything without loading a new page, and the Admin CP is overly complicated. it has 900+ files for upload

    In MyBB, you can do a lot of stuff without reloading the page (like editing a post, quoting a post, etc.) and the Admin CP is simple. It has 700+ files for upload
