My biggest and most successful forum to date. Started 10+ years ago and eventually grew to be quite popular. Unfortunately I lost all of the original data several years ago when a hard drive crashed on the server it was hosted on - I didn't have any backups because the host claimed to make nightly backups, but for whatever reason that never happened either. I rebuilt it and while some members came back, the forum isn't as popular as it once was due in part to a decrease in the quality of output from the company.

I'm trying to revive it but I'm not sure how well that will work.

Wow that'd be super frustrating.

Had a look at the site and wow that's WAY different to the Archie comics I recall as a kid !
I reject your reality, and substitute my own.

I did have a nice orange one up prior to the upgrade to 2.1. I haven't had a chance to look into upgrading it yet. I'll go dig up the file later and attach it here.

Here is the theme and the PSDs for it. This theme was originally going to be used on the SimplePortal website and was given to me to use when they decided not to use it (someone from SP told me about this I believe, which is how I got hold of it).

I originally had the orange version of the old DilberMC theme up and then switched to this one when I upgraded from 1.1 to 2.0 years ago.

You cannot see attachments on this board.

Hey, those look good. Nice work. :) I hope he can use'm

I should be able to use them. I already have the company's requested disclaimer on my site and a logo with the trademarked characters in them (don't remember where that banner came from - someone made it for me)

The disclaimer you have in the footer has a link to archiecomics, but links back to your site, is that deliberate?

No that's not intentional. I'll take a look at it when I get a chance.

Spam has been cleaned up and the disclaimer has been fixed. Also changed registration mode to admin approval for the time being.
