    I found this in my archives, can't recall why I look this - perhaps I was mocking up some proposed change of layout?!

    Shame it's just a close up of the actual forum list, rather than the full site but you get the idea...it was green!

    I couldn't see any little aliens? (exAscifi members after the reunification were all bemoaning the loss of their little aliens. I never met any, and was only once accused of being one in disguise).

    Haha yeah we had lots of little aliens but they couldn't be seen in the forum list, only on an individual topic/profile

    I think we definitely look prettier now. :)

    padders was running such an old and out-dated version of vbulletin 2 that I needed help from the vbulletin staff with the import.

    I really like the look of the current forum - it's still a messageboard, but it looks modern and works responsively!

    We did have an epic list of smileys back in Y2K though :p

    I was on a vBulletin board around then that had almost 200 smilies - some were amazingly creative. But I guess it was overkill. :)
