Hey gang, for those of you that have been requesting a lighter theme I got to see a teaser tonight of what Bigweb has been working on. I'm a diehard on this old theme of ours because I've been looking at it for three years, but I think you're gonna like it. As soon as he switches I'm gonna switch and I never thought I would. Don't expect it tomorrow or the next day. I know Bigweb is going to make sure it's spot on before it's available but I can tell you what he's working on is pretty darn slick! I mean seriously slick!

For those who wonder why it is taking so long, Bigweb is virtually doing away with the table structure in the stock phpbb theme and customizing it with valid HTML and CSS. And I'm telling you what I have seen so far, I am outrageously impresssed.

Like I said, don't expect it tomorrow, but wow, gotta say I like what I'm seeing!

Believe me, he handed me a cookie tonight too and snatched it away, but in all seriousness, I only posted this to let you know that it's not a pipe dream. He is seriously working on a lighter theme for us. p.s. there's some "eye candy" / chocolates in there as well

I suspect there will be no screenies. I think Bigweb just showed me cause he knew I'd "leak" a little info lol. Just be patient gang. Nothing had been said about it for awhile, so mostly I just wanted to let you know it isn't a forgotten thing and is seriously being worked on. It still may take some time. Bigweb is making significant changes to the templates that I think very few if any have ever done and I don't think he'll release even a screenshot until it's perfect and ready to use.

Well, I have been thinking about giving you guys a few screenshots of the new lighter ozzu theme. Then I thought some more and finally decided that I would give you guys a little something to look at while you wait:

For the record, I may have just talked Bigweb out of posting a screeny, so blame me not him. He was "that close" to spilling his guts! It will be worth the shock value lol!

So, you are the person that caused a mini ozzu rebellion?

It is very cruel playing with peoples emotions in this way. I mean, we all think we are going to get to see a small preview of the new theme only to be tricked into seeing an example of the current theme.

I cried for hours last night.

heehee. Nope the screeny of current OZZU was all Bigweb's idea. All you guys tears though almost broke down the big guy. I had to slap him a few times to wake him up.

By the way, if anyone is interested in seeing what the colours bigweb listed look like then check out this page...

Ozzu New Colours

I was curious, so i created a page to see what it looked like and thought i might share it with you all.

Some interesting colours there.

Hmm. I'm going to petition Bigweb to create an even darker theme! The people demand monochrome! *adjusts his monitor's brightness settings to make Ozzu even darker*
