Change the colors, they're depressing tbh. Something lively that would suit GTA V's theme would be awesome.
Image scaling too, I hate the fact that the page stretches, I am wondering how it wasn't fixed yet.

Also. That .. "If ain't broken, don't fix it", is a retarded statement. I hate it. (Not pointing at anyone here)

Thanks.

It's simple and easy on the eyes. I hope there will be no major changes. It would be nice to get rid of the color text option, because this isn't easy on the eyes.

The colors are fine, it's just the design, it's outdated, but it works for now...

A "mobile" Version would be nice. And if they put some css code to avoid big pictures make the page ultrawide.
Beside of that it's fine for me

I like both dark and light themes, but I wouldn't mind a refresh of GTAF though.

Dunno if anyone agrees, but, what about...

Look at this one:
http://www.deviantar...rhead-130413722
and http://www.deviantar...-Older-86854040

Keep the abstract style in mind, but change out the art with gta v artwork and use a clean colour as background behind the artwork layers, like white or black. Nothing too crazy or too much, but just like a few characters, landmarks and a few more things. Compress some gta v artwork you've cut out from artwork released by Rockstar or fix up the screens released by R* and magazines in abstract/gta artwork style. Use it as a background for this forum. Will fit nicely as both light and dark themes.
Hope you understood my lousy explanation.

Here are som other examples using same style:

Depends really. I really like how it loads fast (Facebook is laggy as f*ck on my PC) and is simple to use. On the other hand, it feels a bit outdated. I wonder how 1.5 will be, i hope it's a mix of both.

If a new layout is implemented, users will gripe for the old one to be revived; If the current layout remains, users will gripe for a new one.

As I said in another thread, it's old, outdated, marks everything as "read" after 15 minutes, so I can't go to the first "unread" post in a thread and it's missing all the modern features that most forums have nowadays, like alerts, likes, and the ability to copy and paste images, without worrying about URLs. In fact copying and pasting entire news articles with identical formatting can be done on modern forums. Oh, and another modern forum feature is the ability to use "real time" formatting when posting, rather than having to rely on BCC code all the time.

Also, this place should be made compatible with Tapatalk, for a much better mobile browsing experience. It's a free plug-in and the mobile app itself is very cheap, and it makes life a lot easier.

Thanks for all the comments!

Although it may not happen immediately, we do plan to port the current skin to the 1.5 upgrade for those that want to continue using it.

"Current skin" being the Grey and Black colors? I hope so. It's easy on my eyes. icon14.gif

Yes, he's referring to the GTANet 2k4, GTANet 2k4+ skin. Not surprised it will need to be ported over to V1.5 since the update will be based on other pre-existing software not IPB. Let's hope it doesn't take too long.

On the subject of an update and the general look of the forum, I hope that it keeps the simplicity. I like to use this site on my PS3, and it works perfectly, it'd be a shame if I couldn't do that anymore if everything gets overcomplicated and it loads slowly on PS3.

And please import all the existing skins into the next upgrades!

Since it's not coming with the new software don't expect it to remain the default skin of the forum. I think it'll be the gtav.net skin since the software should come around the time GTAV comes out. I also heard someone say it will be very similar so I don't know. And something like that would attract more users into the forum in my opinion. I know some fear the changes that the forum will forego but I'm sure what ever the new default skin is it will be as fitting if not more fitting than the 2k4+ skin. And you will be able to revert back to it once it's ported if you don't like it by any chance. I just hope the development of the older skins are continued though so they don't become buggy like a few of the current ones.

I really enjoy the look of the forum. For me it's nice to see it really hasn't changed much over the years.
It feels like home so to speak. You know where everything is and feel comfortable with the environment.

Everything from the blue colored headings to the dark gray background just "Feel" right. You know you are at the
GTA Forums when you see it. It's like seeing a name brand of something. You know what you are going to get and it's
great. Shifty41s_beerhatsmilie2.gif

Even though a lot may consider it simple and generic, to me It's aesthetically pleasing.
And everything you need is conveniently located to the left.

I'd be really disappointed to see it drastically changed in the future.

Sounds good. I really like how it looks now so I voted no. But what I mainly look for in a skin is a dark color scheme, like we have now. The ones with bright colors tend to bother my eyes after a while, making it difficult to stay on for very long.

For me, the current skin is ok, but i think it would be cool to have GTA V's skin, replaced with this one.

Number one change would be inline image scaling, so big images can't change the width. Click/rollover scaled images to see full size. Everything else is fine and I hate change for change's sake usually.

I have to agree with this.

Other than that I think it is too easy to get quote trains/wars on this forum (I especially have a dislike of quote trains with screenshots). I am used to forums where you can't really quote multiple posters at once unless you edit it by hand. I often try to avoid quoting someone, especially if they posted a screenshot.
