Input needed - MAJOR Pets.ca redesign

Dear members,

Over the next month or so the main site of Pets.ca will undergo a MAJOR redesign. Before we start the redesign we'd LOVE to get some input from our amazing community of BB members. (Please note the redesign will not really affect this forum all that much but it will affect almost every other section/page on the site)

So....if members would provide input and/or suggestions, we'd love to hear them. Here's the type of input we are interested in.

- What colours would you like to see the new site be based on?
- What features are missing from the main site that you feel would be good additions.
- Are there other websites (pet related or not) whose navigation colours and features you just love and WHY?
- anything else you want to add?

Many thanks everyone - we really value our members' input so please don't be shy about posting!!!

Best!
Marko

Wink My input

New colours....

Green
Light yellow
All mulitcoloured ()
Or my personal favourite colour, any shade of orange

And instead of having to click on one of the sub-forums to view who else is logged on, can we just see it on the main page??

Also on the main page instead of having a couple of access ways to the sub-forums (eg. general forum for cats and dogs, cat health forum, pet photography, off-topic forum ect.) then we could have one access point to it, so we don't have to go to next page to get different sub-foum titles (eg. dog behaviour, books, jokes and anecdotes, movies and t.v, opinions rants pet chat ect.) That way there is more room for more sub-forum titles, so we don't have to go from page to page.
That sounds complicated, but I don't know how else to put it


Pretty pretty please???

Soter (I love pets.ca!)

Thanks soter

But for now, we are only after suggestions that affect the OTHER parts of the site NOT this forum. Forum improvements will follow the main site's redesign, but this thread is to suggest stuff for the OTHER parts of Pets.ca

many thx!
Marko

That jarring yellow banner at the top of the main page would be nice in a blue, and still match the logo at the top left.

Generally when I am on web pages, I prefer the colours like what are in the forum, muted blues, it is much easier on the eyes when you are on for a long period of time, anything brightly coloured can cause headaches and eye strain. IMO. Oh and if we could get rid of the bright white too, like in where the cat pages and dog pages are.... too much white can also be hard on the eyes.... for backgrounds maybe go to the soft light blueish gray that is around this box I'm typing in now.

I'm sure you guys'll do a great job... and can't wait for the video stuff too!

Sorry for the late post, I haven't been on the forum in a few days.

Well, all I do on here is post and read, so I don't explore much
What OTHER parts of the site?? Like, the arcade, blogs..... ect? I haven't really got a clue!

Joeyjoejoe around post #16 mentioned a couple of websites. But with my bad vision I need to have my fonts very large,,around 24; and the columns on the right hand side of those websites overlap onto the lower sentences making it impossible to read.

That is one trouble I have with lots of websites, is that some of them; the top sentences overlaps onto the bottom sentences and I can't read them.

I love this website and I would love to be able to keep coming here and reading it.
Thanks
Debbie

Marko,
Maybe the font size could also be chosen at the individual user panel?

Smilies are only used in the forum and the forum is not being re-designed at this time. That's coming later and then we can bug marko for that.
