  • 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)

      Looks like a good start to making things even better. Thanks for all the hard work so far.

      A larger font on the mobile site for selecting the page #s would be great.

      don't like it. it is a hot mess. hard to seperate anything on here. white giving me a headache. if anything, for the forums, you need to at least box everything in to get some separation. it all just runs together. some posts will definitely get overlooked. nice work that ya'll are thinking outside the box, just doesn't work for me.

      the new posts page is just the web version and its killing me having to zoom in and out!

      by the way, on a normal pc browser i quite like the white, although frames would help tp distinguish between posts

      Don't like it on my iPhone. Now keep having to zoom and scroll all over the place. Other version was more iPhone friendly.

      Personally I don't like the new layout of the site. Maybe I'll get used to it eventually but for now thumbs down from me.

      just my 2cents, i think the new look is cool, fresh, but it's a little bit hard to differentiate between threads or posts. It would be good if there is a darker frame for the thread windows to sit on

      IMO though

      i liked the old one much more. the new layout is not half as good in terms of oversight and navigation.

      Yep, after a full day on this new layout I am totally over it. Nothing flows, posts all run into each other, info is missing, it feels all sterile and lifeless and it seems the people who can change it are busy doing something else, despite the number of people who are giving similar sorts of feedback.

      I cannot for the life of me understand how a site that has this many users can have an 'update' rolled out that looks like this. Makes me laugh.

      I like it. I have however found a few small things that aren't the end of the world, but that make a difference in the goal of perfection...
      On the login bar on the right, using TAB to navigate takes you to other elements rather than the LOGIN button.
      Maybe just me, but i only have a couple of articles (first page) and cant navigate to "older entries". Maybe you havent bought the history in. But all good, it'll get there...
      Using RockMelt (Chromium) and the Nav bar isn't right compared to IE. see pic below.

      and these ads SUCK! surely these morons can come up with better, nicer, appealing ads that don't just make us use our ad-blockers!?

      Hate it.

      You actually went with the locked margins? Really? Why do all Apple-related sites insist on doing this? No one uses 800x600 resolution anymore guys. Time to get with the times...

      Don't like how posts, news, etc have absolutely no borders anything to separate posts; it's confusing.

      Also, why move to vB 4? It's a steaming pile of wank.

      Xenforo is a new forum created by the developers that left vbulletin when management pressured them into creating the crap project that is vBulletin 4.

      I'd like to move over to it one of these days soon when it's out of beta; great things coming to it for sure...

      How does a site with so many graphic artists end up looking this bad?

      I would imagine a whole ton of folks would have volunteered to make it nice.

      I know this is just an opinion (and we all know what those are worth) but, I would scrap this and start over. It is a tremendous fail.

      At the very least make the background a light grey or something.

      WTF happened to this site? I know I have only been here a short while (which makes navigation that much harder) but damn this is killing my eyes....

      Please, for the love of everything holy change this back to a color background... Replace some borders, and get a third grader to fix what else is broken here...

      For those who are bothered by the white, just hit Command+Option+Control+8.

      Need to add times back to post, so we know what time post was posted. And where is the mobile site. This new design is slower on my iPhone! I don't visit as often with this new design. 

      I guess I'm going to be labeled as sour grapes but way too much of the screen real estate is taken up with saying "Momyi". I know you guys are proud of what you've done but the banner ( see graphic) needs to be reduced in size.

      Yah it's a bit funny in that photo. The featured bit is collapsable, and only currently has that story in it - it will change as featured stories come out.
