    I made this design for MacRumors, it's made out of iTunes UI Elements.
    I hope you like it.

    Vista rubbish off. :D
    I don't have a mac. But I'm 16 and I love making mock-ups with Fireworks CS4.

    Excellent.
    :D

    Many people have mocked up new designs and most have been terrible. Yours looks good.

    Looks nice, but how much are you going to charge Arn to use this design?:D

    it does look like just changing some images around to use this

    Let me lay you down on how things work around here.

    Does the redesign require any effort at all? Yes? Then it will never happen.

    I'm going to charge him... an iTunes Gift Card. Hahaha. :p

    It's basically that, I few image changes and a pair of tweaks here and there.
    I shouldn't require much effort at all.

    Nice job, OP. This could be coming in the future. It looks nice and really clean. A few things need to be changed here and there, but they are so small. Nice job!

    Can you show us the entire page?

    I like it too, aibar8. Very nice.

    How 'bout showing us how you'd do the bottom of the page too, i.e., the Recent MacRumors Stories section and the footer.

    You got a future kid.;)

    What would be the chance of this actually happening?

    The only thing is, wouldn't the forums design have to change to. It would be an entire overhaul.

    Why? I like it. Just wondering if this could actually happen or if we would stick with the current mock-up.

    I pretty sure that MacRumors will get a redesign (something many have been looking forward to) but I don't know when. In the meantime, suggestions (and mockups) are welcome and so are comments on the suggestions.

    +1, it's good because it's not changing the whole site with some random crap like most mockups, it's just giving a nice update to the current one.

    I like this design as well, its an update, but it still retains the basic layout.
