Celebrating 15 years of themes!

Recommended Posts

Today, IPSFocus turns 15 years old!

The news topic which announced the opening of this site was posted on March 12, 2006 and I'm both amazed and grateful that we're still going strong! Over the years, thousands of you have joined me on this journey by participating in this community or purchasing a theme (or two, or three, or more) and I'm so thankful for that, as it's allowed me to turn a small hobby into a career!

During that time, there have been dozens of premade themes released, hundreds of custom themes have been made - and we've gone through numerous site names (IPBForumSkins, IPBFocus, IPSFocus) and multiple redesigns. I'm honestly amazed some of you kept returning to this site while it was using the first design! :ph34r:

And here we are, 15 years later! To extend a thank you to you all, starting today, you can use FOCUS15 as a coupon on the payment screen to receive a $15 discount on new theme orders. (Use FOCUSRENEW for a $5 renewal discount). The coupons are valid for the next 7 days (ending on March 19), so feel free to take a look at the themes and take advantage of the offer if you're interested in a fresh theme for your community!

Here's to another 15? Who knows!

This is my 11th year here (according to the sign-up date in my profile anyway). Love your work, wouldn't go anywhere else! Keep it up! 😍

Wow! It's amazing thinking of everything which has happened during that time.

iPhones, Twitter and Netflix streaming didn't exist when this site was started. Googling "the biggest news stories of 2010" or "biggest news stories from the past decade" would be interesting.

I've been here a few years already myself. Indeed, love your work as well. Congrats. 👊

Wow. I've been here almost 11 years (minus 2 months). For me you are the best theme author! Not to mention an excellent support!

Congratulations! 

I have certainly followed you over the years as quality always survives. 

You outlasted Cleancut as well 😂 

I hope you continue to flourish

Waow, How is the time passing?!

I've created my account here after only 1,5 year after you on 9 September 2007.

Until now i've always suggested your themes for others like i've done lastly here:

Because i love your themes, i like your humanity and your helpfulness. You're Number One since 15 years!

 

Keep up your good work for at least another 15 years until we get old 😅

It's scary, isn't it. You surely must be one of the longest active members here if you've been around since 2007. I appreciate all of your referrals! :)

Has anyone been around longer than Feneroin?

Yeah, it's.

I'm very touched right now, really 🥺

The years pass quickly...

I've used SkinbyDragonfly themes, her theme was heavily edited so it was slow for the sites. Then i've searched IPB Skins/Themes and i've found you.  since you're my unique themer 😎

If i'm not right, you're from Australia? If i visite one day Australia, i would like to see you even if you're 800km far. For at least speaking 5 minutes with you, taking a souvenir photo 😇

And of course if you came one day in Europe, let me. I can come where you want. I'm Turkish but live in France, near the Germany. And not so far from Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxemburg.

 

and one day, i would like to have a custom theme from you. Maybe at the end of this year, who know...

Just coming up on 10 years of using your themes. I've never used any other theme authors. 👌🏻

A little thing @Ehren

I've loved and purchased your Splat before. It was a very good theme in my opinion.

If you can keep re-alive it, this will be very cool at least a new theme like Splat! 😅

I've been here about 6 years.  Sorry to say, I have cheated on you a few times, but mostly for silly themes like holidays.  Now I have a few of your themes and they are the only ones I have.

Any plans and news for new themes in future ? 

He was said 'soon' for a new theme. I wait it too
