Neowin's design will be changing soon anyway, so I don't think it matters too much.

To be honest neither Neowin nor that site are too far removed from the default IPB theme.

Colours are similar, that's about it. Can't really accuse someone using the same base product as copying just because they picked some RGB values that don't look awful together.

They both use the same software so share the same layout and since they have used a similar blue it looks similar but it's definitely not a copy.

Are you sure about it still?

 

If memory serves me correct then you were saying that the "Neowin says that Devsforum Copied the theme" ?

 

But this topic's replies says something else ?!?!?
