Looks cool!
I've heard making phpbb skins is quite horrible, is it true? would it be an idea to find one similar to what you want and edit bits here and there?

This is my plan. The last time I themed a phpbb forum this worked quite well.

Are you planning on getting the forum to contort to this new design too?
Or are we going to do something similar to what Ogre does on their own site (With their forums)?

I'm planning to get the website and forum designs to share visual elements, so they look like they're part of the same website, but since the website is fixed with and the forum shouldn't be, they won't be the exact same design. I'll just reuse images/visual styles as much as possible.

Btw the current status of the website is that I am converting my design mockup into a Wordpress theme. Wee!

Please remember about a place for "tools" where login link is placed (or at least place a link to login page somewhere near menu, so it would be easy accessible).

Our new website theme has been sent to our web admin! Unless I royally screwed something up, we should see it online as soon as our poor admin gets around to it! I've been relentlessly spamming him with emails, so give him a break. :)

It needs some tweaking from the admin side, still being worked on.
