Hi @andybond wondering it its just me, or has the site logo become really small?

Top left one?

Since the updated theme it is auto scaling. On a 4k res its tiny but on anything sensible its ok.

Ok, do have high res on PC and Laptop, so that might be it, but as you say its tiny. Clearly not a genuine issue :)

Any more for any more? I am assuming its doing what we want then?

Would anyone consider a proposal for an alternative platform? I personally am not the biggest fan of phpbb ( which this site is ) and have been running turboRenault.co.uk ( again at not for profit ) on Xenforo.

Basic boards look like : https://xenforo.com/community/
My turboRenault board looks like : https://turborenault.co.uk/

As every there are a myriad of themes etc that we can apply.

Any thoughts or considerations or are we happy with the status quo?

As I',m a boring traditionalist who doesn't like change, I like the look and feel of the current site. And thanks, Andy, for the good work and time you,re putting in.

I dont want to change things if there is no appetite for the change from end users. I dont want to alienate established people from the site.

I enjoy stuff like this and I think its important to try and put something back into a community.

I think we are just getting used to more activity (finally) with the ‘new board’. I miss the exige photo and font at the top.

Fact is use nose dived after the board was changed to this current format :(
The previous was just happier font/style/ and crucially it had very nice and big smilies. It may sound gay (I know I know) but the current smilies are small and shit I believe its part of why activity dropped. That and loosing ohotobucket soon after.

If you can give exiges back happy smilies/emoticons and ditch the current scary/indreadable ones that plus the photos (Thank you!!) could wale up isage again.


Of the two you showed above, the basic one feels more familiar btw.
