Hmmm.... my very first forum? It was a YaBB board that I customized myself. I didn't do anything fancy - just messed with the CSS. :)

As for my first SMF install, it was probably the default theme. I can't remember for sure. I've always been pretty happy with SMF's default themes. :) So far, Core has been my favorite, but Curve looks amazing.

Not the theme as in a customization, but in the topic of discussion.

Ahhh...sorry. :) It didn't really have a theme. It was kind of a general discussion area. Eventually, it became a poetry forum.
