WoWMoonclaw01 / WoWMoonclaw
"WoWMoonclaw01" for phpBB was first developped around June 2005 for my former guild forum on EU-Sinstralis and for the pre-official forum server "sinstralis.net".
The goal was to create something efficient and restrained at the same time, and technically staying as close as possible to phpBB's default template.
Some people asked me where they could get it, that's why I got the idea to make it widely available (around September 2005). I also wanted an URL more appropriate to World of Warcraft content than the one of my old web site, and that's why I created wowcr.net.
In late October 2005 (or November I don't remember well), Ssirul, one of the leaders (and webmaster) of <Empire> guilde, contacted me to say that they had installed this template on their forum and that they had used it to make a similar skin for their EQdkp (which they use as front page of their site too) look as the forum. I got the idea to distirbute an assorted EQdkp template along with the phpBB template and I've recreated it, based on Ssirul's EQdkp style settings.
Around that period, "WoWMoonclaw01" became a worldwide reference as the most installed World of Warcraft phpBB template (taking the place of "DGF_wow").
In June 2007, with the phpBB 3 version, the template's name was change to "WoWMoonclaw".
