Nice design but it doesn't feel like I-F at all - will get used to the layout thoughLOL....

Love the new logo....I definitely think it's a lot more welcoming to members who don't originate from IndiaEmbarrassed...

Like others have pointed out the GA's are being sidelined....many of the Dev. Team decide to make topics GA so as to catch members attention but I don't see that happening here....

I like how the channels are placed - side by side as opposed to on top of each other....

Because the GD section is so small; could we possibly place it a bit higher?....It's a wonderful part of I-F but hardly any-one is aware of it!Ouch....Also I think important sections like Rules and Avi and Sig shop should be somewhere where they can be seen clearly...

The simple colours are wonderful though!Tongue

Overall; I can't wait for this new layout to be put in place!Embarrassed

Agree with meghavi and ammu,,

We should probably have all the sections on the main page, and have general discussions as one section and general as one section. A lot of the general sections are repeated on GD page anyway, so that can be avoided... Embarrassed

The new layout just makes it look like most of the other forums, the present layout makes I-F unique..

Could'nt we just improve this present layout, instead of channing everything..=(

Vijay Bhai,

I will skip what I like in this new layout and will list out only what I haven't liked in this new layout. It's an honest opinion for betterment of IF and I hope it wont be taken to heart as harsh criticism...Embarrassed

OK, here are the points :

  1. The Logo : even though it is OK, the earlier one seemed better .This one looks more like a UN logo.
  2. Too much of space has been allotted to the Childsafe  message.
  3. The page design looks haphazard and confusing now.
  4. Too much of space has been allotted to video uploading and display.
  5. Tellybuzz section looks confusing.
  6. Bollywood channel has been given too much of space too
  7. The GA at the side has lost its purpose. Either the GA topics should be flashing or they should occupy the center to catch the eyes. On the sides, they do neither and seemed totally sidelined.
  8. Important links like COC, Help, IF Dev Team etc, is allotted one tiny corner at the bottom which often can miss the eyes especially that of newcomers.
  9. GD forums has been given too much of space while the main crowd puller – the popular TV shows looks all haphazard.
  10. The active member list is missing and is definitely a put off as that often helps many to know who is online  .Especially when a GM is required to tackle a situation that page can give an idea which one to contact.
  11. The new homepage has lost the welcome touch and it looks more like other sites. The unique identity of IF is lost. It looks less user-friendly.
  12.  If you have to make a change why not keep the rest as it is, but change only the Popular TV shows section by simply featuring the channel names and assigning a separate page to each channel and its sections? There you can even list out that channel Moderators name.
  13. From the space that you make by removing the section names off the channels, you can utilize that space to Tellybuzz and Video uploading.
  14. That way the objective of the new home page is met and members still can feel at home and we don't have to face the clutter.
  15. If you are interested in this suggestion, we can talk on this more.

Hey Vijay!
The new layout is very nice!
But the one we have now is even more nice...i really like the blue colours cos it makes it stand out! and i love the logo we have now! It's big and when you see it you immediatly know what you will find here seeing the flag!
The new one i think it's too modern...and the colours don't stand out as much!
But what i like about it, are the boxes which have the shows in, i think the way it's set out it really nice!
I think you should keep the logo and colours from this layout we have now and use some of the boxes etc. from the new layout! it would make a great combo!

I personally thins the new Skin is great but can u do 1 thing if possible can users have option 2 change between skin they want to use this way it would be more easy for everyone as well as for the people that like the old skin & as well as for the people that like new skin & of course you can decide which one u want 2 keep as default
