Old School BBS

Post by Dazbobaby »

Does anyone know of a theme that can style PHPBB like an old school BBS like this?

I'm thinking of using one on April fools day with a http throttle and dropping it down to 14400kb, just for a laugh :)

That's a brilliant idea.

Should have posted earlier though, there is no time left to make that happen :(

I should have mentioned it earlier, I was googling a few months ago for a http throttle.

BTW I love the elegance theme :)

Throttle isn't needed. You should use JavaScript to output stuff on delay

Sorry to bump an old thread but, did anyone end up tackling this? It would be an awesome idea!

I wonder how you could incorporate other BBS style features like door games and FIDONet like services...
:D
