Ford Muscle Forums Changes

the look of Ford Muscle will change... well only a little. In the agreement between Ford Muscle and Autoguide the original logo for the Ford Muscle still belongs to the Ford Muscle. Ford Muscle Forums will have a little bit of a new skin with a new logo. We tried to keep everything as close as possible to not violate our contracts with Ford Muscle but if you notice the look of the logo and the forum to be just a little different this is why. The change is expected to happen before September 1st.

I don't like it. Oh well, I find myself coming here less and less, anyway.

If the background was a softer white then I think the changes would be fine.

just a suggestion- but cant the old colors be a option? I know another forum that changed a couple years ago, so much ruckus from so many with eye strain, they added a tab to select new/old color scheme layouts...would user selectable colors be a option? years back I was on one setup that way- amber on black I can read all day...but not to ad friendly

CONFIDENCE: that feeling you get just before you realize the mess you got yourself into...

Re: Ford Muscle Forums Changes

Too many ads and too much going on. How many Auctionzip ads need to be on the screen at one time? It's amazing how many temporary files it generates when calling the page up. I enjoy the site but as you may have noticed. It's been a few years since I've optioned for the paid membership. The site looks very professional and I'm sure it came with a price.

It's not my cup of tea but nice job.

Thumbs down Re: Ford Muscle Forums Changes

I find it harder to navigate, the old site looked so much more professional... this looks so bland. The layout isn't that great. I signed up for membership last year to help keep the site going but now it looks like something I made back in high school. Please change it back. I can't even find my way back to the store to buy more emblems from the forum site! >_<

Re: Ford Muscle Forums Changes

Darker option - I put a request in to creative to have the darker skin option added. When it goes live it will be in the bottom left with t drop down so you can choose. *edit, just spoke with one of the guys in creative they will work on it at the start of next week. Modeling the blues and blacks a little closer to the original fordmuscle.com to make the whole site a little darker. the default will remain this color but you will have a dropdown to change it.

Tabs don't work - we are aware of this and working on it. the original links went back to fordmuscle.com and will be restored shortly.

The admin account will need to remain as admin but there is no reason you cant know my first name. 99% of the time it will be me using this account. The rest of the 1% is when the techs are logged in using it to fix things. They will not post unless its a test post or engage you guys or answer questions. If in the event I am off sick or on vacation there will be another community manager who will step in to fill in for me. If this is the case the staff will be notified of my absence.

Too Many Ads- the site has always had ads lots of them. The ad positions have been shifted around. We are working on a premium program, I believe will be tied in with the tech exchange. The details are still being ironed out but this will include less ads in addition to more garage space for your galleries and more PM storage. I will be working this out with the staff over the next coming weeks and hopefully roll it out sooner then later.
