    I am "prettyfying" the forum so please be aware that I am aware of some of the spelling mistakes and akwardness of some of the color schemes and all so I am not really looking for much feedback yet unless you have some innovative ideas for me. I will let you know when I am done and all.
    Thanks

    Looks good so far!

    Shouldn't the banner say "Tesla Motors Club" rather than "Tesla Motor Club"?

    It might be nice to have a totally original photo in the banner.

    I have some that may work (I'll look) and would be happy to shoot something specifically for banner use next time I get to see a Roadster.

    Are we allowed to use the Tesla font/logo?

    If we are allowed to use the Tesla logo, here's my two cents:-

    But we've seen this photo before. I agree with vfx; a new roadster image would be best.

    Maybe Martin can post us a shot of Signature 100 #2? :)

    I had the logo on the smf forum and there didn't seem to be a problem with that.
    I say we leave up what we have or put up what malcolm just showed us and deal with that till something new comes along.

    Please don't overdo it.

    It's pretty, but I often read this from my PDA. More and fancier graphics could take some of the fun out of that. Do you have an easy way to make a mobile.teslamotorsclub.com?

    Maybe a little smaller logo?

    It takes away a top third of my screen.

    Are these changes the reason I haven't been able to access the forum in weeks? I thought we were hacked again, I kept getting "site not found" errors every time I tried. I even received a "reply to topic" email a while back but still couldn't get to the site until today. Anyone else having these problems? I see people have been posting right along so maybe it was just me.

    The site has had periods of slow loading. Not sure if this is resolved. Seems ok over the last few days.

    One thing I've just noticed is that in flipping the image of the black roadster, I have of course omitted the charging port which should be on the left side of the vehicle. Doh!

    Oh well, it's a placeholder until new owners can post more photos.

    WarpedOne, the problem with making it smaller would be that I think it might be difficult because we might have to work with the code of the skin a little. But its better then nothing for now.

    JRP3, I don't know why we were having loading problems. I do not think they have anything to do with the changes we have been making since these loading problems I think started before we started fixing up the site. These loading problems seemed to start happening when we got hundreds of people coming from autobloggreen but I checked with my server and doesn't seem to be any problems with its ability to handle that.

    Yes, it is better now.

    Hm, I'm very fond of the roadsters rear end. Maybe right picture should be the rear end of car driving off screen? :)

    I don't see any picture now. Just the "Applied Skin" banner again.

    The red background that appears whenever the forum is loading is a little annoying and doesn't serve much function, now that you changed the top banner to black. Maybe you should consider removing the background the next time you talk to your web expert. I like the current banner though.

    Yeah, the banner and the little Roadsters icons for the sub-forums look nice... I would let this settle for a little while and perhaps make another skin so people can choose ?
