I liked the dropdown menus on the home row of the old design as it made navigating on my phone faster, but otherwise it looks great.

Now would be a perfect time to redesign the banner that unregistered members see: the one with "675000 members" written on it. It doesn't fit with the new style and the number needs to be updated anyway.

I'd like to see "like" go away and keep "thanks" like it is for the simple reason that "like" seems to say "Facebook want to be"!

Its nice, I really like the simplicity; But like others have stated, there are a few inches on the sides of the screen. Almost like I'm in a 4:3 mode on a 16:9 TV. But I like it!

Ha! It's funny how people's tastes and preferences in design are so different. For the most part feedback on this design has been very positive, but of course there are going to be some who dislike the changes. I think the key is that it's viewed by the MAJORITY as an improvement.

And I still like iSource's design... but it does need some touch upification.

While I like the header and the drop down tabs, the white background just leaves me with a feeling that this site has gotten clean on me. The best way to describe my feelings are, this site offers to help others with rooting their phones, offering support, trouble shooting if things go bad, along with numerous other things. So I look at this site as being on some type of cutting edge, technology wise, people come here to get real help with real problems and in return we get a sterile white background. A site that's on the cutting edge can certainly do better than that !!!

I think this is what is being referred to (see the blue X's on the outside edges). I know I would like to see it darker to make the site easier on the eyes as well as focus on the content in the center.

Agree with the last post - but to mke it even more readable, I'd like an alternate skin developed for hte board that simply resizes the middle 'column' to, say, something like 80% or 90% of the user's screen width - so that it automatically goes widescreen for those of us who have ws monitors.

The best would be a dark skin / theme that is also ws...

For ideas, I can capture various screenshots from my former home away from home (sevenforums) on how it looks both with a stock ws skin as well as a dark ws skin....

I agree. While I'm not a web designer, I have created a handful of pages, and the whole idea of designing a page that doesn't adapt to the size of the display seems ludicrous. The tiny text that doesn't get bigger when I zoom in Chrome (the only site I've come across like this), combined with margins with a combined width that is wider than the content drives me nuts.

Im sorry, but i like the old way better. This way looks very stockish and square like shaped. I like the black page foot though

The new look leaves much too much screen wasted on the top margin. I understand the reasons for advertising and the posting the website name, but this is simply a waste.

The issues with Chrome weren't intended.

Try Firefox for now, it may be more satisfactory.

Please don't ignore those of us who find the new theme WAY too bright. It is hard on the eyes and I find myself unable to stay on the site for long anymore. Please provide an alternate theme. This blinding white is unbearable.

The title of this thread is "Phandroid and Androidforum.com's New Look!" (emphasis added). Am I the only one who thinks it odd that this site (Androidforum) now carries the logo of Phandroid (a totally different site)? BTW, the purple outline around the Phandroid graphic is at odds with the site color scheme (i.e., it's not used anywhere else).

One additional suggestion, which I think someone mentioned a couple pages back... please add some delay to the mouseover action on the blue navigation banner (HOME, CARRIERS, PHONE, etc.) at the top of each page. It is extremely annoying to have it instantly expand when just moving your mouse pointer to some other area of the screen. This is a very easy fix in Javascript.

If we're going to persist in one logo, I still think that Home needs to go away as redundant on both sites and Forums needs to slide over and take its place.

Yeah, I know. I was just trying to clarify that Phandroid.com and Androidforums.com are linked and always have been. At least, ever since I've been a member.

That's how I joined in the first place, just because I was reading news on Phandroid and wanted to see what the forum community was like...and I haven't gone away since...LOL.

Ok, clicking the Phandroid logo here takes you androidforums.com.

And bottom of page Next takes you back in time, while Previous lets you go forward to the later-in-time time stories already viewed.

Stories are arranged chronologically. By applying the word Previous to mean later in time, what could possibly go wrong.

Expecting people to accept Next as in next up from a query, and previous as...

Garrr. Never mind. This was done on purpose, not seeing the wrong of it.

And we keep trying so hard to push you out the door, too! :P

Seriously, I've asked for the wide skin more than once, but the dark color is now more important on my agenda than the wide skin. It's too bright!

★No doubt that some good points were made in almost all posts. Hopefully we'll see some changes be made soon. I'm sure that everybody won't be satisfied with the end result, but nonetheless it's worth seeing. シ

Agreed completely. It's WAY too bright now.

I haven't had much chance to compare, but I think I prefer it to the old look.

However I don't appreciate the keyboard shortcut cmd-left taking me back a page. This seems to happen while I'm typing a post, because Mac OS uses it instead of the Home key to got to the beginning of a line. Don't get rid of it altogether, but could could you please disable it while I'm typing?

I'm not sure if this got lost in the initial flurry of comments on the redesign so I figured I would bring it up again.

Also the "closed" on closed threads button is the old original version.

Well, let's keep them bunched up then. Are we to expect this () to be the report button from now on or is this on the punch list?

This layout has substantially slowed down my phone. Hopefully it will get better ewith time because it is taking an unbearably long time to load pages, but my paltry 600Mhz processor could be a huge part of the problem. Looks good though!

I miss all the blue.

Also, and I am not sure if it is different than before, but if I happen to maximize my browser, a lot of empty space in either sidemargin that is highly noticeable now, at least on my firefox browser. Makes it seem annoyingly narrow.


I never noticed this before, possibly because I rarely maximize. When I un-maxmize, it seems to scale normally. I dont remember what it did before, but it did jump out at me now.

+1 or keep them from popping up unless you click on the button. It's annoying to have these huge boxes that cover half the screen pop up when I move my cursor from my tabs down to the forums.

Don't post very often, but just thought I'd drop by and share my appreciation for the new look.

I love it. It's very up to date with the minimalist design that's generally accepted nowadays.

Chrome doesn't seem to want to let me enlarge the font size, which is a problem for middle-aged eyes.

RE: The font issue, one of our developers said this in the Phandroid Comments:

Seriously phandroid. The font on this thing is awful. Us readers can barely read the articles. Eye Strain.

So, presumably, this means chrome users will be able to expand the font size again soon

Not much of a poster, but read and search here daily! I like the new look and style, but Im afraid I can't read hardly anything here anymore. As bad as I hate it I have had to go to other forums for info (none as good as here) The text is way to small and the brightness is blinding!! Have a little compassion for those of us with less than X-Ray vision.

3 links don't seem to be working at the very bottom of the site, lower RH corner:

Sitemap just yields "Page Not Found"

Disclaimer and Terms of Service simply jump you back to the top of the existing page. They don't take you anywhere. This is repeatable from Waterfox 64 bit, Firefox, and from Opera 12.

MANY of us have complained of the same thing. It's WAY too bright and hard on the eyes. Unfortunately the site admins have chosen to completely ignore us. Very disappointing and just a bit rude.

When does the corporate world ever listen to those of us upon whom they ultimately depend for their existence?

I don't find it too bright, but then I only run my displays at about 30% brightness. If I ran them at the 100% they ship with from the manufacturer, most every website with white on it would be retina-burning. I will say this. I would much prefer this color scheme than those forums which are white-text-on-black-themed. Those truly ARE hard on the eyes.
