    Default need a new theme for IBB

    ok guys.., arent we bored of this same old blue theme of IBB? i mean i was expecting a new theme on diwali.. but then as out admin was out of country.. thought will be changed later.. but still no changes...all of u ppl.. pl post your opinions .. should theme be changed or this is well and good??


    regarding my suggestion.. i think 2 changes to be done.. one is change the theme color... make it little attractive soothing to eyes.., instead of blue.. and second thing is.. make the appearence broad.. instead of this central strap like coming.. and on both sides blank spaces...we can use up this spaces on either side.. this will make it more marking and more soughtful... rest friends... your wishes makes the differnce....

    I don't think you should have put the 3rd choice.
    I have a feeling that majority will vote for 'majority'.
    I do agree with you on changing to new theme.

    Thats a good idea..
    I want to through light on some of the ideas which were promised to be implemented but were not,like 'ISP' name below Avatar - Admin said, he will set it up a weekend.

    & what about the Contest on IndiaBroadband.net - Polls were all conducted. Suggestions poured in for the idea of the contest.

    Its makes me remembers of the Noida Double Murder case (Arushi),it begun with getting all media attention & later dunno what happened.Do any1 of know what happened to that case?

    Hope we dont see the same result with this thread - Contest on IndiaBroadband.net

    I know that all the suggestions cannot be implemented,so if any suggestion has a negative outcome (result)...it must be posted.So that we can proceed on the next one.

    though I m not bored with this theme, I want to see what suggestions anyone else has,
    who knows - something better might turn up.

    PS: old IS gold

    Our BB is better in terms of looks and no advertising than the other BB Forum .....

    But i think if Admin has the time to spare he may want to check out UbuntuForum which also works using VBB ..... Its really cool

    and others too .... check it out

    Google ubuntuForum and click on the first Link

    pretty impressive design Shadow.
    but still, this IBB look has a certain homely aura, like that of old orkut.
    I have made up my mind and voted 4 "no, this theme is better(old is gold) "

    why the "" , Doc !!!!

    And I totally appreciated ur suggestion
    didnt i say "pretty impressive design Shadow".
    same reason why I said earlier "who knows - something better might turn up".
    I m not against progressive change.

    This theme is much better than Ububtu forum's and many others I have seen. But there might be better available.

    I like a theme with dark background and green or silver menus. But that might make this look like a gaming forum. And most people will not like it.

    Or light silver gradient background with dark silver gradient menus.

    Not too sure about the theme but we will announce the contest today itself.

    Yes by the end of the day today

    I am not saying we wont change the theme... I mean if every one wants a change then we can change the theme as well... I am for the current theme as it has a lot of SEO benefits with it and we get more traffic and new members this way.

    This theme is much better than another forum's. The interface is clean and easy to understand. This is a classic theme everyone will like. Changing it completely might cause confusion to members. But if possible just some minor color changes etc might be good.

    yes.. only color change will also do.. sick and tired with blue.. and lets see.. if admin can make this middle working stripe more broad in full width... as both side empty is any way waste... what u say guys?? i think tht will decrease the length so more replies per page we can see...

    I think the current theme is fine, and more over its become a trade for the forum. Its easy for new members to understand and find their required sections, its simple and layout is good.

    Why change if there is nothing wrong with it!

    But on the other hand i think when the forum gets much much bigger then a change can be good!

    I agree with it. I also llike this layout. Changing this will not be a good idea. But I think some minor color changes might be good.

    Theme= Color Theme. Layout= Skin.

    The only issue I have with the current theme is that it is fixed for 800x600 resolution. If the theme adjusts the size as per native screen resolution it would be great.

    It feels like watching 4:3 on 16:9.

    but we need to think about lot many other users too who sare still using 14" monitors and if we will make it 1280*1024 or anything like that then they may need to scroll the whole screen here and there.

    There is no clear mandate for or against the current theme... thats why I never said anything in this thread.

    I am waiting for a new theme release which is some what similar to this but is full width but we dont have a set release date Ive been waiting since september for that theme.

    the only reason i dont want the current theme to change is that it is very fast. I have seen other forums, one of the many reasons i stuck to this one was because of its simple soothing looks.

    I think that I said on some other thread on the same topic, that I would love to have a theme that would automatically make use of the full screen width as per the native screen resolution.

    I think a change of theme was tried out but it caused the google ratings to slip. No idea why this happened. I am not conversant with Web Content Management and UI.

    I don't dislike this theme. But some small modification to the current theme is good if possible.
