    After struggling for god knows how long, I created this WordPress layout based on a forum:

    That looks pretty cool. Only thing I don't like is how the background flickers when scrolling.

    Definitely original. But don't you fear you'll get lots of visitors asking "how do I post a new thread on this forum?" :)

    Yeah it does flicker because of the odd pattern in the background. I was considering changing the background to a solid colour so it wouldn't do that.

    I don't think I would have that trouble... (At least I sure as heck hope not) The layout lacks a few things that makes a forum a forum. Like a navigation, a login area (or register) and other random stuff. And I'm pretty sure they would get it because they don't see a list of forums either.

    Have you tried using your background stationary? I usually don't like that at all, but in that case, maybe it would work better, because the stripes are kinda nice otherwise. :)

    Oh thanks for the suggestion Oriecat. I just fixed the background and it now doesn't flicker when you scroll.

    Ever consider releasing this layout to the public? =D

    I'm not sure if people would be interested.
    I'm not sure how to either.

    Oh that really works good now imo. Great job. Just fyi, you seem to have one missing tag invalidating your site.

    Very nice theme! That is the PERFECT theme for a multi-user blog. Awesome job.

    Thank you :)

    I'm going to apply a forum-based layout to the Archives and other pages and I'll see if I'm able to make it a theme.

    I like the layout, but it's hard to read. Not enough contrast between text/background. Otherwise, looks great.

    I don't like the a:hover thing, except that it's fine.
