just wait like the rest of us, the time will come.

P.S. what about installing a 2.0.11 board and upgrading it to Olympus when it gets released?
Wait like we did for the revamp of phpbb that was announced two years ago.

I'm not angry with ya Uchiha Nick, just confused.

Jared.
glad your not angry. however creating something big like this takes time, unless you copy another software ;)

and well, the management has its reasons for not showing us, and im sure they're good.

Such boards can go find themselves a top flight designer if they so wish. I will however say I think you'll like the new style Smile

Just out of curiosity. Is the name of the style known?

Yes and no we won't say what it is in public (and I hope no one else has) ... because you'll all go squirreling off to Google for it ;) I know you guys, I really do :)

I think its called Sexy_PhpBB, :D Just kidding. I'd like to know the same thing. But I'm betting no hints there either.

I've heard the new style features nude photos of Paul! 8O

I guess that would explain why it's so different from other styles.

But, that's just what I've heard.

Dude, get over yourself... as psoTFX would say, "if you like IPB, use IPB, if you like vB, use vB, if you like phpBB, use phpBB."

And in defense of the phpBB team (may they live forever), other BB software teams have a habit of copying from phpBB, not the other way around ;)
