Like many others before me, I became interested in actually recreating the site.
The first task was to make the login page. A friend from UCLA (mm) looked at snapshots from the anime and created the logo from scratch. Thanks, mm!
Then looking at this and other snapshots, I recreated the login page to stay as true to the anime as possible.
As for the BBS itself, I decided to use the Kareha script and modified it to suit my needs.
There wasn’t really any good close-ups of the board itself until the more recent episodes.
I haven’t really worked on the site until this week. The login page was up, but it didn’t lead to anywhere (I blame school projects and other work).
The goal here is to make the discussion board look as close to the anime one as possible.
There is no user registration and anonymous posting is allowed just like 2chan and 4chan. Personally, it’s much more likely that I’ll post if I can do it right away without having to register and put in an email.
Of course, the functionality and features isn’t the same as what they have in the anime.
This is still a work in progress and there’s always room for improvement (it’s still missing some things!). I’ll be modifying/updating the BBS at random times.
Feel free to leave suggestions here or on the board itself.
The URL for Dollars BBS is [http://dollars-bbs.org/]. Probably everyone knows by now, but the password is “baccano” (same as in the anime).
Please keep it clean and enjoy!
