Why do IT guys always want to change forums' that work?
 
Leave it alone


Phone interface leaves much to be desired from a meme posting perspective

Because it's their job. They don't want the Maytag repairman... Wanna feel needed?

On surface I agree w/you. But the underpinnings of technology is always changing. Can't remain static while everything else changes. Old is nice, but harder to maintain. Where do you find the "parts?"

Don't wanna end up like this, or maybe we do?

Change on your own terms or somebody will force you to change on theirs.

Looks like something might be happening to the main Page even as we speak.

My saved linky doesn't work, neither does that on the top menu of the site.

I think he was referring to the overall simplistic format, but I agree with you on the "underpinnings" that maybe we dont see.

 

That pic is HILLARIOUS BTW

We are a decade overdue for a real modern redesign. I would like to make it a community effort. While the final decisions will rest with me, I want to hear from those with a strong interest and eye for design, usability, function, etc... and help push me in the right direction to serve the Bills community the best we can.

 

If you are interested in helping, I will probably open up a subform for us to chat about the direction. I want the discussion to be constructive with a high signal to noise ratio. While I love a good joke, I'd greatly prefer if everyone refrained from adding noise and derailing the conversation...

 

Offer specific suggestions if you have the chops or point to another site's implementation if you don't. A sampling of topics:

 

Fonts (typefaces, serif/sans-serif, size, etc...)

Header

Site width

Mobile specific

Color scheme

Social media

etc...

 

The platform will be Wordpress and the theme will be based off one of the StudioPress themes:

 

http://my.studiopress.com/themes/

 

We won't have the big, front page images those themes have though. If there is a specific theme I should be looking at outside of those, please suggest...

 

thanks.

 

Design forum:

Wordpress?

 

I hope you have strong spam filters.
