    New Layout

    Good day,

    Today we are proud to present a new layout, which for the first time is uniform throughout Ultimatecarpage.com. The obvious changes in colours are combined with some minor changes in the layout and functionality.

    On the main page the changes are subtle and mostly include the slight moving around of familiar functions. The supporting members will see bigger changes with the spec table moved next to the image gallery and article at car features.

    For the forum users the biggest change is the post layout. The new style is more efficient and also presents all information vertically, making it more obvious whose post you are reading. To keep the user-info box as small as possible we have adjusted the avatar size for supporting members, which is now 200x90 as opposed to 90x90 for regular members. It has also opened up space for more attachments per post.
    On the main forum page the list of newly added cars makes its long awaited return.

    With the new style we decided to add a fresh new logo with a number of new cars. They now also appear randomly on forum pages.

    If you run into any problems please let us know in this thread.

    All the changes are rounded up in the following screen shots.

    Thanks for your time and enjoy this and your future visits!

    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    I can't disclose much yet, but you can expect more new premium features in the very near future.

    I'll repeat what I said in the lock thread: You need to revert to vertical avatars. This is a readability nigthmare. And while you're at it limit the size of sigs. Say to two lines of text.

    But, I'm pretty sure that won't happen.

    I think you may have guessed correctly. I am confident that it may need some time to get used to. However, the limitation of the signature size, about which I made a jocular remark because GT1 Street has a complete shopping list, warrants a serious approach.

    saying it with your "as a matter of fact" "tone" doesnt stop this from just being an opinion

    some people have an in-build tendency to oppose to changes. Nothing wrong with that, but most of the time it will happen as you describe. It is a matter of getting used to. You might ask yourself the hypothetical question: Would you have avoided UPC if the forums had always been like this?

    As of right now, I like everything except for the steering wheels, and the light blue box w/ the username, avvy, location, posts, etc. being 2x the size of the post box. (in 1 or 2 line posts)

    then again, I have signatures turned off.

    EDIT: I just viewed this thread w/ sigs turned on, and it looked a tad worse. I just think the post box should be lengthened in height by 60-80 pixels.
