    FireworkReviews.com will be launching at midnight tonight. It uses Xenforo, XenMediaGallery and (eventually) XenReviews plus a multitude of Xenforo add-ons.

    The site will feature consumer as well as display firework reviews and discussion, pictures, videos, etc.

    The site was formerly known as PyroReview.com which ran from 2004-2013 and had over 6,000 members. Unfortunately all data from that site was lost in one of five (yes, five) hard drive crashes in 2013. :(

    So, new name, new look, new software, new start! :)

    Thanks! It's from Audentio, the xenBlock theme.

    It's only temporary, though...getting a custom theme made.

    The theme looks nice! Good choice of red, it's not too bright nor too dark. Best of luck with the site.

    I like it myself. Who is doing your theme design?

    Not sure yet. I have an inquiry in at PixelExit, but have yet to hear back from them.

    Nice truck, BTW. :)

    @Russ of PixelExit is a great guy - They got a bit of a backlog right now though! Awesome site. Do you own your own Firework business? If not, might be good to try and work with Epic Fireworks on this - also a great bunch of guys and may help you generate some traffic if they link you.

    I emailed you back yesterday Bryan, looking forward to your response. Talk to you soon.

    Thanks @Thom Tyler

    I've decided to stick with the current theme for now until I get some funds together for a custom look.

    I did update to the latest version of the theme, though, and also made a few minor changes to the look.

    At the request of many former users, I have changed the site back to its former name.

    Additionally, I switched the theme over to UI.X (parent theme to xenBlock).
