BBS Theme Packs

Many of the BBS software packages out there are amazing, but their base theme(s) included with their default installs are a bit lacking. A couple of members from Phenom are working to change that by helping BBS authors provide better looking BBS themes packs with their upcoming releases. Mystic BBS will be the FIRST of several Bulletin Board Packages that will be receiving a major makeover after many years of having the same theme.
