  I haven't posted here for a long time because I couldn't get the site to work.
All I kept getting was text only. No matter what computer I used or what browser...so I quit coming here.
  But today I stumbled onto trailerparkboys.com while looking for the TPB board game...and it links to this site...so I thought it has to have something to do with my login. I could see the site was still active so I started thinking about why would my login not work --- and luckily my first try was maybe the theme is no longer working and for some reason it doesn't load the default - so I managed (not easily) to get to my profile, changed the theme to default - whalaah! - Everything is fine.

   I would imagine in the forum software there is an option to revert folks to the default if there theme is no longer available.
 
   Cheers

Yeah, a few things got broken when we passed the torch to SwearNet & The Boys before this season kicked off.

I myself couldn't login either due to the theme issue.

I just reset everyone to the default one, hopefully anyone that had the other themes can now access the site too.

Sorry for the trouble

Theme?  What are you talking about?  I've never heard the theme from day 1 in 2010.
Ho Ho's and Ding Dongs are not the same thing!

There was a few different forum themes over the years. "Sunnyvale Blues" which is the default, "Dope Flavoured Rum" which was a weed leaf themed green layout, "Sexy Black T-Shirt" was a black and red theme with full & empty rum glasses for post icons, and I recall a Bumblebee yellow & black layout as well on the original site :)
