    Please don't advertise your website in other sections. We are discussing what themes we are using, why we use them, and where we got them, etc. so a link to your site is not needed,

    Thanks.

    I used a modified version of BlazeBB on Dashing. Next up will be a modified version of another theme and one of the better Dark Themes out there.

    I love the Dashing theme, you guys did a good job customizing it.

    Thanks for the comments. That theme certainly felt much better than the other Dashing theme we had previously.

    Its one of my favorites, one of the best MyBB themes. Its very welcoming, and just looks sexy overall. From looking at the original one, you guys customized it a whole lot, and as I mentioned did a great job at it.

    Apart Clean because it's fresh, simple and neat and can be used on pretty much any forum, and you can customise it.

    I never use stock ones. Fully custom is the way to go IMO ;) I always design my own though. If I couldn't, I'd probably use one of the dynaxel or audentio ones because both of those guys rock.

    Jessie.S. the founder of Dynaxel is a really old friend of mines, I remember when he just got into skinning for MyBB. And yea the both of them make great designs.

    I use a completely custom theme so the forums blend in with the rest of the website's design as best as possible. :)

    The default theme on my forum at the moment is The Cure (http://mods.mybb.com/view/the-cure-for-mybb-1-6). Considering it's free, I think it's a very well put together theme and is very clean; and overall just looks great.

    With that said, I have just purchased the Gaming Jam theme from Audentio Design (http://www.audentio.com/shop/view/mybb/gaming_jam-3) and do plan on switching to that; whilst still leaving the old theme available.

    I do like the old theme, but think the new one probably fits the theme of the forum better (gaming).

    Eventually I do hope to switch to a custom theme. I did start designing one myself in the past and it was used pretty much at launch, but my designing skills leave a lot to be desired (in particular my photo-shopping skills), so I ended up going with The Cure theme.

    I use SmoothGreyBB as it is a very dark and sleek skin, I have edited many parts of the skin and it does not look like the original anymore.
    I also have another forum which I am using the skin Zink but that is getting changed soon.
