Yeah, the site is fine the way it is. I personally don't like how all the important stuff is on the side (ie Active Topics). I mean it looks nice, but I think the current layout is more easily understood/used. Could you release it as a seperate theme somehow? Kinda like how VBulletin has themes.
It changes every year…
Hey Mike, why not finish this? It looks awesome. I love the picture on top! All you'd have to do is maybe change some color schemes/images (black and red looks awesome though) and make the active topics/etc. highlight on mouse-over.
Basically, I don't like it when things are resized and moved to different areas of the page than I am used to. How about a customizable interface? Kinda like how Facebook lets you move things around (move different pieces of the page around).
Even this one was friggin' awesome: http://www.nfscars.net/misc/wip/Diablo;374745
I won't be using the current theme anymore after I replace it. What I can do is if more then a handful of people (ie greater then 5) request it is use a secondary theme (http://www.nfscars.net/misc/wip/
) you can select under your pref's but it won't be the main theme which means if you don't select it you will be using the standard theme.
See the thing is. I am tired of the standard 3 column layout, left, middle, and right. Its time for something different.
The active topics are not the most important part of the site. The cars are and thats why they are on top, the site is after all called NFSCars. The tracks and tools are on the right instead of in the middle of the page now. Its really not that big of a switch.
