    An overhaul without new emoticons is not acceptable...

    Welcome change! Especially the homepage.

    Areas of improvement:
    1. Like everyone else has pointed out, the colour scheme of the v-bulletin pages does hurt the eyes.
    2. The width of the content section of the threads has been reduced, which means smaller pics, & more scrolling up/down the pages.
    3. In xTracker, the name of the thread & the new post are appearing in same font. Also there is no demarcation to differentiate between consecutive posts.

    The pleasure is when your rear wheel slides, and you bring it back; and when the front wheel lifts, you take your time bringing it back.

    With all due respect to the people behind the makeover, applaud. "Iffort" good effort.

    Few things I(personally) am disappointed with:
    1.The overall layout and color schemes, I am feeling claustrophobic after the layout switch. The older one was way better. My eyes hurt when I am reading something. So far haven't got the idea of wasting the side space of the page. Also the stripes adds to the search for icons/tabs
    2.Tourer Section: loved the concept of Pictorial depiction of logs.
    a.But felt few more good blogs are missing out.
    b.The ride to MotoGp, falling under tourer section????
    c.Few itenary planning threads are mixed which requires a small clean up.
    d. If older blogs are also considered, then i felt some seriously good blogs by fellow members are missing (P.S: scrolled down till the page loaded any new logs).
    3.Talkies: List view was better than the grid view.
    4.Too many cartoons, way too many
    5.Once I press on new posts, confusion confusion confusion, its like the way the Darsheel safary sees in his class Sticky threads were easily recognizable unlike now.

    Moral of the story: Its a good thing that we change with time, but what we bring in with the change should be more user friendly and easily adaptable. I know few might suggest, try it over a period of time, you will get adjusted with it. True, by then my capacity of vision would have gone down by some extent.

    The quoted point are my own personal suggesstions, and i don't want people start pelting me stones if you disagree on the above ones

    I'd like the width to be 100% like it was before. In the olden days forums used to have fixed width because of the old low resolution monitors. I don't know why do we need fixed width in present days. I have fullHD monitor and forum is looking skinny.

    Secondly I think "like" button may be turned into "thanks" or "I agree" b'cause it'll be more used then.

    Another thing "Reply to Thread" is still bearing old CSS shadow value.

    A few CSS changes from my point of view.

    For full screen forum, line 1312 from css style sheet:
    Change: width: 940px;
    to : min-width: 940px;

    Change: padding: 10px 15px 10px 15px;
    to : padding: 10px 20px 10px 15px;
    -----
    To rectify shadow effect to "Reply to Thread" button, line 3209:
    Change:
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 3px 8px #dddddd;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 3px 8px #DDD;
    box-shadow: 0 3px 8px #DDD;

    To:
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 3px 8px #111;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 3px 8px #111;
    box-shadow: 0 3px 8px #111;
    ------
    To rectify mis-alignment of buttons First and ,line 1500:
    Change: top: -2px;
    To : top: -4px;
    --------
    To rectify shadow effects of boxes present in the bottom and keeping shadow effect in accordance with "reply to thread" button, line 1586 AND 1569:

    change: -moz-box-shadow: -2px 2px 2px #c8c8c8;
    -webkit-box-shadow: -2px 2px 2px #C8C8C8;
    box-shadow: -2px 2px 2px #C8C8C8;
    to:
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 3px 8px #222;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 3px 8px #222;
    box-shadow: 0 3px 8px #222;
    --------
    To add cool shadow to posts, line 426:
    Add line: box-shadow: 0 3px 13px #222;
    -----
    And to Quick Reply box:
    Add the same line above.
    ==========
    ^These are just my humble suggestions, but some of them are rectifications which were left unchanged from previous theme, which were not compatible with this new theme.

    Here's the result of the trickery mention in the last post,
    right click on the image and click open image in new tab.



    All changes are there,
    Forum is full screen (if desired),
    Shadow of reply to thread rectified,
    shadow of Similar Thread boxes recified,
    < First, <, buttons are now aligned,
    Posts have nice cool shadow.

    Let me know how it looks.

    The order in the "1st IMP" needs to be reworked.
    1) For example a less relevant thread like R15 V1 and RTR Fi(both are now not available) finds its place in the top 6 as compared to say a R15 V2 and Duke 200
    2) Also there should be separate section or demarcation for bike/scooters available in India and elsewhere

    Just a heads up: RSS feeds of few sections including News are broken.

    Edit: Another thing, updated threads titles are being showed into same format, so there's no way knowing which threads are updated and which are not. In the old days updated threads had bold titles.
    ----
    And some users are complaining that text hard to read, few said they are comfortable. Let me explain, workstation/expensive level displays have greater color depth so reading this site on them is very comfortable but rest 98% displays in this world are not workstation level so reading text on them must be difficult. CRTs have far less contrast ratio than LCD/LEDs so it becomes even more difficult.
