Very nice layout, love the new logo and the new look... very sleek :)

Some of my thoughts:

  1. Is the childsafe advocates an ad or part of the layout? If its part of the layout then I don't think its a good idea to put it there so prominently, it can be put on the bottom or somewhere else on the side.
  2. Active Topics, Addict List, Members List tab is missing..
  3. GAs - These are one of the most prominent parts of the layout right now.. and I think they shud be given a just as prominenent part in the new layout. Its very imp and less members will notice it if its given such a small space. Abt Anu's suggestion to have a GA for every Channel... I don't know if thats a good idea since it will require too much clicking and as we know our members are quite lazy...
  4. Log-in tab is using too much space.. i think it can easily be placed near the top somewhere like in the old layout.
  5. Not very keen on the Active Contributers thing.. will def ensure spamming unless there is some sort of precaution taken.
  6. Bolly News and that video upload thing next to the log in tab are both taking up too much space. I think the GAs cud take the place of where the video upload thing is now.
  7. Quick Links tab gets a Thumbs Up from me.
  8. Where the telly buzz is right now.. it is taking up lots of room.. if we cud squeeze it together how we have it now i think it wud be better and we wud have room for other things.
  9. How the channels are.. do u have to click 'more info' to see the rest of the shows? is there no way to have the shows on the page itself without having to click to find the rest of them?

Just a few suggs from me, other than that - loving the new layout!Clap Although it will take time for me to get used to it, I'm sure I will...Embarrassed

Hey vijay,

Firstly, I truly think a new layout for IF will be a wonderful idea and the new layout design is great. There are a few suggestions I have however:

  1. I personally dont think that the upload video should be right next to the register and log in? Or actually it shouldnt be before the register and login? perhaps put the log in first, then the register part, and then the video.
  2. I think the bollywood news is taking up too much space and is rather odd having it under the channels. I feel it should be directly under the tellybuzz highlight area or, the tellybuzz section should be made smaller and the bollywood news put beside it.
    The channels then stay where they are under neath it. By doing it this way you will have space to keep the online users list on the first page. I personally thing online users should be on homepage as it is much easier for people to access and just seems to me as more practical?
  3. I think the page just needs to be reshuffled as currently its a bit hard to notice where everything is. I think it would be best if  you were to mess around with the positioning and decide a more organized layout and one that follows everything through nicely.
  4. Overall it is good.
  5. The new logo is FAB! doubt it is truly lovely.
Thats all for now..will add more later

Thank you Vijay Smile

Clap Clap Clap Very nice Vijay bhai!

- I like the Quick Links tab, it's very efficient... and I also like the logo but you said something about having India flag on it right? Could the people be green, white, and orange? And the chakra in the middle.. or just the flag. I think having the three people there makes it seem more like we're a socialising forum, though? Anyway we can have something to do with telly or entertainment there?
- I know everyone has said this, but yah, the Bolly section really takes up too much spaceEmbarrassed
- Can we make the GAs on the center of the pg, like how it is now? Cos that's how they'll catch the attention... my suggestion would be like to really minimise the Bolly area, move the channels down and then put the GAs there, so it would fit in the center.. but just a suggestion.
- The three blue boxes, with the "upload videos", the other tabs, and to log-in, are quite big and take up some space too. Can we make those smaller, maybe?
- I think the Tellybuzz tabs can just appear when you click on the red Tellybuzz tab on top...
- Is there a way that we can have all the shows available for each channel, like how it is now? Im not sure if that's what you intended, but just to make sure. That way every member can see every forum instead of having to go somewhere else to see all the serials in a channel.
- I think for the Online Users, I think Anku (anku2cute) said this, but if we can't have them directly on the home page then can we have a tab for them?

- I think the layout is really nice, but hmm, for me, I think it emphasises more on the technological side... for me atleast, India-Forums has always looked really homely and I feel this one has less of that "homely" touch. This is the biggest point for me, because I know for many IF is like a second home and if we could keep it looking more homely I feel it would be beneficial.Embarrassed

But all in all, it's really nice and it's a big change but only for the good I'm sure... I had a bit more to add and will add that later!Embarrassed

Btw, that Child Advocates Ad, was that just there or are we actually going to have it permanently on the homepage? It's quite big and too prominent, if that could be smallerEmbarrassed

Nice layout VijayClapClapClap

Below are my inputs.

  • The bollywood news is taking more space. Telly Buzz-Television articles gets maximum hits. Can we do like this have two colums wherein one side having top 5 Bollywood News & other side TV news which get maximum hits/replies or a flash kind of thing for 5 sec Bollywood & for next 5 seconds TV like we have currently on home page where Review/Interview is shown. The remaining space can be used for active users list.
  • Can we have GA's on front page.
  •   The Quick link idea is very good but since it's placed down there is chance that people might miss it out. Active Topics | Members List | Search | Indian TV Index | TV Actors Index IF-Addicts is missing.
  • The log in feature via which member can choose to add himself in active list or not is missing. Can we have that too.
  • Multiple PM feature waiting for this it will save lot of timeEmbarrassed
That's as of now will add more later.

Hey Vijay,

Really nice job on the designs, whoever did that, BRAVO!

Few things only that i'd like to say::

1. Like everyone said, the GAs need to have a more prominent and important place, and it's just TOO useful to have the online users list, so please think about it before pushing it off soewhere...

2. GD is in a side tab, i see a general section there... The main page general goes into that, or does it have a separate list? At present Avatar n Sig shops, Member's Lounge, etc... are on the GD page as well as main page Embarrassed Confused

Also, if GD is on main page, why is there still a tab? Embarrassed
That's it from me!

Wonderful job Vijay Bro !! ClapClapClap

- GA's need to be prominent and given a little more space. They're completely pushed off to the site and since these are the important announcements of the forum, I feel they should be the first thing to catch a member's eye Embarrassed

- Bollywood news right under the serial forums kinda makes it confusing and crowded. It can just be added under the Bollywood tab Tongue

- Are all the GD sections giong to be on the homepage too? If yes, then why is there a GD tab at the top? Embarrassed

That's all for now Tongue

Hello Vijay
The new layout looks good, will take time to adjust to it.

Dont see the ID showing up as we now have on top.
No indication about PM's.
Video is there in a lot of places
a. in the top red line
b. the 1st box
c. the 2nd box.

Other things have already been mentioned.

hi bro,

ok love the new colours very snazzy

finally the gd section is displayed more

the child safe thing is a little to big dominates the page to much

could tke sometime for people to get used to this new design its a lot different from the current one

GA's need to be displayed more prominantly, i think shrinking bollywood news might be a better way to go.

erm thats it so far
