Very nice, very nice indeed.

It's been a while since I've been back to the v2 preview forums but quite frankly now all I can say is w00t.

vBulletin eat your heart out, phpBB is here to kick your ass into touch

(Edit)
I did just notice one thing, is the ICQ button supposed to be 2 separate links or am I just being daft :)

Hey, I guess a nice request (if anyone wants to try it) is for a template that looks like Aqua, Mac OS X's new graphics thingy (for lack of a better name ;) ). That would be a REALLY awesome layout. So there's a project for anyone who knows what it looks like. :mrgreen:
What's the name of the font used by Apple?

Didn't Apple trademark it or something stupid, hence why WindowBlinds now doesn't have an OSX theme??

Then again, it'd probably be ok to use as a BBS template. :)

subBlue: Are you intending to take this one on then?? ;)

You'll have to wait and see about that...

I found the font style: Garamond Condensed which is their own creation. However, I found the Garamond ITC Book Condensed which seems pretty much the same.

Cool! But I think they have the logo and such trademarked, but if you based something on it, I don't think they would mind, as it's an original creation. Not a legal expert, though.

Are you kidding?! Apple go after anyone who seems to remotely allow their themes to be influenced by Aqua :D

Not exactly Aqua, but definately influenced.

I'm not going to make a complete them, but may release a set of buttons like this.

Use the striped background thing too. It would look pretty good in tables. But that is awesome, just go for maybe a clearer look.

I think you would get away with this :)
Copyright could be VERY dangerous! I have a picture of an Harley Davidson engine on my site (I got it from their site) and got a not too friendly mail from the states. Lucky for me I got a permission from HD Norway 8)

might get away with that ... elightenment has 2 or 3 themes based on aqua ... he debian apple is the best of the bunch ...

watch out apple had a fit with a shareware program called aquamatic now button builder ... but since many site have copied the aqua theme I wonder ... you're not doing themes for a gui but for a site .... hmmmm ....

but aren't we sick of all the aqua sites yet?


hehe, I use aqua everyday .... best gui for unix yet I do say.

Note to devs: some people like Shantra ou MarkK seem to have no rank. By default, the template system uses the latest rank displayed and they eventually end up with a stolen rank :D

Nope, you just reached the limit to have your own rank: "Here often". :D
