They do look pretty similar.

Doesn't look like they stole any images though, since there are some large differences in the images used. Perhaps they started with the same HTML/CSS and tweaked it to their liking but with all new images. Since DivinityRO isn't running anymore and sarahRO(?) doesn't look too lively, this is a moot point. I guess it's really up to Ether or whoever designed the site to be able to take up action, if they really wanted to.

It is not a copy from DivinityRO web page, it is a copy from where DivinityRO probably copied that too.

I remember I saw that DivinityRO web style was a copy from a design from deviantart.com, a couple of things changed but the main style was the same

I did not copy any website while making this design. If there is anything identical to my website on DeviantArt, it is pure coincidence.

Although it does look almost exactly like the website I made, I'm not going to make them change their website. The older Divinity website is not being used anymore, and they didn't steal anything from the original design. As long as they make it look like their own style, I'm fine with them copying my base design.

That's nice, but even if they did copy it what power would you have over them to actually make them change it, it wouldn't be the first time a website was copied and it wouldn't be the last.

Major props for being level-headed.

I don't think there's anything more to do besides kindly asking them to take it down or change it. Both sites are using images clearly not made by them. They may have made their own textures/html/css code but they are riddled with fan art from other artists who likely didn't give them permission. There's a lot of questionable acts in running a RO site/server so I doubt that you would get very far legally.

That's why most people just resort to making a rant and rave thread about the server/owner hoping to expose them and deter players from the server. Doesn't really work though, aside from extreme cases.

This is arguably the funniest thing I've read today.
