    I was just wondering. The look of MTGNews's forums and CPA's forums look almost exactly alike.

    So, who modeled one after the other?

    I think they look similar because they're using the same message board software.

    There are some difference between them though, like the borders around messages and maybe some more.

    I have no idea, since I never go to MTGNews and don't know when they had their site "look" like this.

    The CPA went to this color scheme in the fall of 2000 (almost a year ago, I believe). but even when it was orange and black, the layout was pretty much the same.

    So I think it's the software thing.

    You'd have to ask Ed for sure, but I think it's because they both use the same software... VBulletin. the CPA just upgraded to 2.0, but MTGNews was upgraded a while ago. (I believe)
    Not sure about the colors, I guess they just work the best... :D

    Well, we had the design first, but I doubt MtgNews modeled after us - They just use the same software and color scheme. :) That commonplace in websites.

    Isn't Ed one of the designers for vBulletin? How could they upgrade before us?

    We've been using vBulletin 2.0 since January -- about a month before it was even released.

    They started using it in May (I think). I just recently upgraded to the most recent release of vB 2.0 (for bug/security fixes mostly).

    And if we want to get technical, this version isn't available to the public yet -- it's really 2.0.2. :p

    That means we're cool, right?

    Yah, basically. :) Mad props to Ed.

    I have only been at mtgnews since May and here for about a week. Each site had pretty much the same style, but they were both like that when I arrived.
