View Full Version : Petition to change back to old vb design.

05-12-2004, 12:47 PM
I prefered the old design, and I know I'm not the only one. I do like the features of the new VB, just not the design.

Who is with me?

As I said in another post it will take a while to get used to. At the moment I prefer the old design, but no doubt that will change in a few months.

It's like when sitepoint changed their site to a css based one, I hated it at first but now I love it :)

Well since it's only been up less than an hour now, I'm sure he'll work on changing it.

It's great! It makes things look more modern.

All that needs changing is the heading bar colours (not sure what their technical name is). They look a bit dull and not quite right against the red of the WP header. I reckon something like this:

I like the new red table headers he just added. Looks good!

05-12-2004, 02:59 PM
Yep... me too. It feels more like the WP we know and love, but still with that modern touch.

I tell you what else I like about VB3... Being able to see the latest messages in the email notifications.

I like the old skin. But you can't really judge it yet since Chris is still working on the new skin...

i like the new design vb it takes a while to grow on you... but for some reason it keeps making sign back in ...

05-12-2004, 08:16 PM
I agree, I like the new design also, except for the default vB image set, thankfully that can be changed though.

but for some reason it keeps making sign back in ...That's happened to me also.

The new design is cool. Like it much.

What I don't like is that the posts are seperated, and I dislike the online light.

05-13-2004, 02:10 AM
You dislike the online light? Why? I like that.

I also keep having to log in manually each time. It's probably trying to use an old cookie though.

Is it really that different in overall look? It just seems crisper to me.

Lots more features... keep this. I love the icons in the user's avatar to see whether they're online or not.

I would not want the old one to be back. I like this one...

Incka, the success businessman has to accomodate change. Dont just compare it to the old forum, embrace the new features. Concentrate on the benefits.

05-13-2004, 08:22 AM
I'm beginning to like it now, thought it would just be because of the change :)

05-13-2004, 05:04 PM
Miss the old design but I like this it looks a bit sharper or 'modern' as someone said.

05-16-2004, 06:45 AM
Is this really worth complaining about ... you won't even remember the old design in 2 weeks.

05-16-2004, 06:59 AM
I've decided... this design is far better :)

Must have been the drastic change at first.

05-16-2004, 07:50 AM
Yeah, it growing on me too now...

05-16-2004, 02:49 PM
Not me :D doh! I find it a bit clunky to navigate still. A little slower to load up and stuff. Doesn't seem to tidy, like someone used a cheap paper glue to put it together instead of brand name superglue! haha

Just my thorts, going to give it a few weeks before i actually think it should be changed back.

05-16-2004, 02:51 PM
I really like it. There's no going back now :)

New design is fine, buttons don't seem to fit with it though. ;)

vB2 went quite well with websitepublisher.net.

05-17-2004, 06:51 AM
There are "classic" styles available for vB3. Just throwing it out there... I prefer this new style, but maybe with a different image set.
