I want to design a forum on photoshop then learn how to plug in the graphics to the forum. I also want things like my own customized username/password creation box and learn to put it in a different spot of the forum (instead of the typical bottom area)
There are a couple features i want to add to make people want to post as much as possible such as a ranking feature... if they get 100 posts they get a rank of "Knight" or "Peasant" below their avatar or something like that. Or a digg style feature where people can give them points for useful posts and when they get a certain amount of points they will rank up. Then ill make the medal nice and shiny so they all want it :)
I did not ask for all this in elance btw. I just asked for a phpbb forum and asked them to customize it :x

2 Ways to do this:
1) slice images and use CSS/PHP files to style your PHPBB forum.
2) Create a Joomla Site (and use your photoshop file to create a Joomla Tempalte), and use the PHPBB bridge to incorporate the two.
The advantage of the second one is that you can create a site around your forum, and incorporate a lot more features.
Another reason is that if you go for Option 2) I can help you out more because I have a lot more experience Skinning Joomla than I do PHPBB.
The cool thing about using the Joomla Bridge, is that your PHPBB forum will use the Joomla template you created. (I Hope I havent confused you with all this!!).
But I am more than happy to help out either way.
Let me know if I have confused you.
