Who thinks that the MacRumors site needs a redesign? The current one is a little old fashioned...
What would you like to see changed?
No. It's already flat enough.
The forums certainly need a redesign.
The main site will get some tweaks, but I don't know if it'll be dramatic.
I don't mind it, but I recognize that it is "outdated" by current web design comparisons. The GUI of the website could be updated while maintaining its simplicity but I hope it doesn't veer towards "tiles", a la The Verge (no disrespect, I'm just not a fan of the interface. Although the colors are fun and the content is dicerse and interesting). I come here to MR because the conveyance of info (or rumors, per se) is so easily digested. I don't buy that newer is better by virtue, but only if it improves the UI.
I find the MacRumors site relatively easy to navigate, and especially 'uncluttered' compared to some other sites.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
I hope those coming changes won't result in more clutter, or visual distractions.
Visually speaking things could get spruced up, but I'm not sure an iOS7 themed update is the best approach, especially given how many people really don't like the look of iOS7
The forums do look pretty old but then most forums seem to.
It'd be nice, but not really needed.
Forums graphics are new, fresh and beautiful. They also help attracting new users, with their modern look, and enhance the visual appeal overall.
We seems to follow this trend of form over function.
The forums work well "as is." This idea of getting old (for me) really says nothing. We have seen various man/machine interfaces go through updates that add absolutely no value and at times, detract from function.
So we should just give up ever trying to improve anything? Not every update works but if people don't try then we would all be using dos.
I like it the way it is. Old time Mac users like myself will not be happy if it ends up looking like iOS
I'm fine with the design as it is. I find it easy to read and navigate.
While there are others far more informed than I on this subject, my personal opinion is that change for change sake is unnecessary.
The insatiable need for novelty does not, IMO, apply here.
But that's just one philistine's opinion...
A massive, mega, profound, heartfelt 'amen' to all whom I have quoted above; you have expressed my thoughts and feelings on the matter exactly.
No tiles here please. Count me among those who like an uncluttered, plain, easy to navigate and above all, easy to read, forum.
Bells and whistles - and flashing tiles - for the sake of it - are off putting. And please do not attempt to elevate form over function. I loathe cluttered, flashy screens.
I was thinking of something like this: https://macrumors.zendesk.com/hc/en-us
I think it would be cool if macrumors forums on mobile looked more iOS 7 like. Or even a macrumors iOS app.
I'm still trying to get used to the current design
The aggressive white hurts my eyes and the light blue is difficult to read. You call that "user friendly"?
I was thinking of "something like that". I didn't say it has to look exactly like that. I just like the user-friendly design.
A Tech Guide Section " how to fix/repair your Mac', would be nice
And functionality fixes.
Like the down vote button.
Nah, I don't think we need a down vote button.......
I always look at it, if change is needed then make the change. But changing for the sake of changing?
I just realised that the MacRumors logo has a question mark in it.
Also, yes, a swanky new redesign please. It's all looking very 90s.
I've always liked the crisp and clean feel of the Nitrous Networks forum. http://nitropanel.com/forum
I like it how it is.
