    Seeing as many of you amazing people have backed up, I feel that making the design of the XenForo upgrade shouldn't be 100% in my hands, but rather what you, the community want as a whole. It would be unfair to have you spend your money to help us get better to revolve around YOU without giving you a say in what the design, and look of the forum will be.


    This being said, Below are some ideas we have with the website:

    http://www.gamehandout.com/forum/ is a xenforo site that I made myself. The theme, ect is geared off of the actual homepage (Click home to view). With this being said, one of the plans was to remake this theme (Legally without taking any of their code or pre-made content) as best as I can. The whole rainbow color theme. This will keep the site a silly, and fun/free place for everyone to enjoy. Less professional, and more enjoyable.

    Another theme we're looking at is http://demo.brivium.com/120/index.php the advertisement banner will be replaced with a giant banner saying "Addons / Downloads" or something along those lines and will turn into a button to go to the resource download page. This is a very professional, easy to use, and amazingly beautiful looking site. This in my opinion is the theme I mostly enjoy.

    *Also, keep in mind the forum nodes will look like this: [​IMG] as it is easier for the community, and future members to use. Plus it looks cleaner, and nicer on the forums.


    If you have any other ideas that you'd like to share, something totally different from these comment below. If you like one of these, fill out the poll, it would be extremely helpful :)

    All the posts, topics, forums, users, ect. will be transfered over to the new forum. The only thing that won't be is the medals. And guess who has the luxury of adding all almost 90+ first 100 medals to all the users XD Other than that, I believe almost everything will be kept.

    lol, the medals isn't a big deal at all :D though it seems that everyone wants this type of layout compared to the sleek professional one I have listed.

    I'm going to have to agree that the Brown/Tan/Grey of these current forums is much easier on the eyes than the Blue/White of the other suggestions. This is likely because the current color scheme is much 'softer' and 'warmer' than the 'sterile cleanroom' feel of the other two that were linked.

    As for layout, I think you might run into a little friction changing to the new node structure, but that will be due mostly to social inertia (people don't like change) than an actual dislike of the setup. Having thought about it, I think I prefer the new layout since it will likely be more easilly navigated on my phone.
