  • 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)

      Someone likes the "white" theme a little too much LOL The ability to switch themes would be outstanding.

      I like the new design, going to take some getting used to though. However I have had a couple of problems with logging in...

      It's so bright! I kind of wish it was easier to distinguish posts from each other, the white just seems to blend everything in. But I like the color change

      hey kyle, yes am enjoying the forum a lot better than before solely because i am able to surf alot quicker than before but i am finding a lot harder to find post that am looking for.

      you should have left the small icons besides the post or made the titles standout some oher way, but right now in my opinion its just like like mactheme

      Everything looks pretty clean, I like it! Think im gonna miss the blue tho.. One thing I hope can happen is to have every other comment in the forum slightly greyed or something to better help distinguish between user's posts. I do really like the "featured" bar at the top... that will be cool to keep track of the top news stories.

      We've got a list about 50 items long of bugs, features, and tweaks needed still. Apologies for the mess folks.

      We're taking all the feedback into account. We should be able to address all the bugs within a week, maybe 2 for some of the larger issue fixes (stuff that's not just cosmetic).

      The old design will not be available or coming back - vBulletin destroyed the ability to use any previous version themes with the new system they moved to. This new system will be better in the long run though.

      We may make a style similar to this one when we've ironed out all the bugs, but with a darker bg (not much, but a little more contrast for people who hate white space). I doubt it though - the answer if there's an overwhelming majority who hate the white space is simply to better differentiate the relevant bits WITHIN the white space. We've tested this style for literally months, but it will alter over the next couple months as we get user feedback and see what works best.

      Either way, thanks for the feedback.

      Nice job, keep up the good work. I guess it'd be cool to have a slightly darker background, but I think you should focus on the bugs before the aesthetics.

      Wow, just realized that because of the update we broke the record for most users online at once, the old one had been set when the 3GS came out, almost 2 years ago!

      Hi Kyle, I see that the version of vBulletin is 4.1.3. I came across a skin which I think will look good on the forum or if you could somehow design forum to be undercut because the moment somehow not many things seem sorted

      CompletevB Demo vB4

      Ewww, there's too much white, everything's weird, get rid of the white, I can't stand it, it's as though you guys didn't do anything to make the site better.

      Well of course, it's going to be Thinner, Lighter and Faster if the sites just as simple as it can be.
