    If you were to completely redesign the site, how would it look?

    I have been shopping around for a vbulletin skin designer for a while. Before I go ahead and hire someone, I would like to first present them with my vision and that of our community. Don't be afraid to be critical... this entire site was built from the ground up on constructive criticism.

    So, this is your chance to change the site! If you were to redesign it, how would it look? What color scheme would you chose? Any specific layouts or graphic you would like to see? Are there core functionality that you think are missing?

    Let me know!

    I like the current layout, I don't think we need any major redesign o.O

    +1. Personally, this site is one of the better designed sites that I visit. And I visit a ton.

    While i like it now, i wouldn't mind a "lighter" design, eventhough everything matches perfectly atm, it is quite dark, a lighter theme to choose from wouldn't be a bad thing...

    I would revert it to the previous design style that was more minimal and did not have borders on every user element.

    Nuff said Sterling :P

    But TBH I think you right, we could play around with a real simplistic kind of interface maybe? I think TUJ has a great example of how well something like that can work, and if we want to implement the tabbed forum index feature eventually this might make it look more streamlined too.

    I'd go with something similar to the TUJ theme...could try adding some color but would be cool if they looked like they belong together..dunno if that's a good idea though as it could come out looking TOO sterile.

    Well as usability goes Im very pleased with the current design, just wished there was some esier way of tracking ones post/interesting subject, iframe style maybe.
    Otherwise I belive its fine the way it is, like the idea of going more TUJ style on it though.

    I would start with the color scheme. White letters on a black background is .... boring. Then add better/more graphics. A website today has to grab the attention of it's visiters. If it is boring, colorless, blocky, people will leave quickly.
    Women and cats will do what they want. Men and dogs should just relax and get used to it.

    I like the layout and format fine, but would prefer a different color scheme that is not so dark. I know black backgrounds are popular, but it makes the site so dark, IMO. Plus, its really obvious when I am sneaking in a few looks during break at work.
