  • ModMyi.com is All New . . . take 3ish


    Kyle's original post before i killed it:

    Yes, we know it's long overdue. We've finally made the move to vBulletin 4, and along with the move we've had a major site redesign. We've been working hard for months to get this design ready and live, and here we are.

    Of course we expect some issues to carry through our testing, and some we already even know about (but we figured you'd want the site back SOMETIME, heh). If you could leave a comment here with your thoughts, criticisms, or bug reports for the new design - we'd appreciate it.

    This marks the 4th version of ModMyi.com, and the third major revision of design. We've grown from summer of 2007 with a handful of members to over 800,000 members now and one of the top sites on the net. The jailbreak community is awesome, and we're proud to be a large part of it.

    Cheers!

    ANYWAYS, since I'm the last one awake I think I'll turn this live before I go to sleep. Many things aren't as polished as we'd like, there are some bugs, more things that aren't done than I'd like, but it's time to throw the switch (I hope it doesnt crash while I'm asleep)

      Makes sense to me. The tabs probably have a defined width (and some padding too). I think it's a simple CSS fix for the page listing posts. Define a width for the div and add some padding (can't tell you how many sites have text run right to the edge), or text-wrap:normal or something.

      Haven't visited the forums in a while, sorry to say I hate everything about the new look.

      I'll be sticking with drive by visiting for a while, I think.

      Please integrate disqus into modmyi - your current comment posting software is lacking and disqus is very easy to use

      Personally I hate disqus as well - its mobile view is terrible with Engadget, its AJAX design is overkill, it doesn't page or scroll properly on an iPhone, etc.

      I think the main problem with a forum app (and many other kinds) versus using Safari is that links (like from the MMi twitter feed) to forum posts don't open in the app, which makes it useless for how I get to the forum most of the time, and makes the app notice really, really annoying since it is worthless to me and constantly appears.

      OK - I know I'm slow. How long has the site looked like this rather than the nice new white version?

      Once you've changed to the b2 theme how do you change back - the option is no longer down the bottom of the screen....

      Hmmm - don't like the b2 version - it's very beta - they seem to be trying lots of things, some work, some don't. Would like the option to swap.

      There's still some rough edges to work out ... IE: some of the text disappear in the background.
      I also like the idea to change themes

      There's no thanks button, or report button - in fact there's a lot missing and I'm not sure I like the layout. being able to swap would certainly help!

      Do you mean on the mobile version of the site? The thanks button and report button are there for me. Mobile version is a little funky.

      What do you guys think of the grey coming back? I'm a fan since it feels more like MMi with it back but wondering how everyone else feels about it.
