I feel as if you guys need a total makeover for these forums. As someone who's experienced in web design (in fact i major in comp sci), it needs to be more easy on the eye and minimalistic . Like the gradients used on top of every post are so 2005. Really, if you guys just upgrade the forums to VB5 and apply a decent skin and change the colors to red and black it will look nice. And I think for the logo you should use the same lettering Milan use to stay consistent with the idea of being a Milan fan site. Plus tapatalk computability over outdated forumrunner which makes my eyes bleed on my phone would be AMAZING


Just my 2 cents (sorry for going a bit offtopic)

EDIT: oh, my one BIG complaint is why is it you HAVE to edit your profile picture to 100x100 manually? i know theres vb extensions that automatically resize the picture for you or is it something you guys do to prevent storage shortage?

You don't have to resize it manually. If it's under 19.5 KB, the system resizes it. But it's best if you resize it yourself for optimum quality.

I agree, this forum is so outdated. All the other big boy clubs have much cooler forums. :(

But don't mess with the color scheme. The white + red looks fine as it is.

vB4 is so-so, not worth the effort, while vB5 is terrible. They've done their best to ruin a perfectly good product, which is the reason I don't upgrade the forums.

But we'll be forced to upgrade at some point. The only decent alternatives right now seem to be XenForo (but I'd like it to be more established) and IPB (I generally don't like the feel of it). I don't think vB will ever recover from the mistakes they've done.

It's worth noticing that many large forums are stuck with vB 3.x for the same reason we are - it's a great product + no other alternative comes close.

As for the colors, I'd like to stick with them rather than the washed-out school of thought that's currently in vogue.

Tapatalk vs. forumrunner - I'll look into it again. For me though, forum on mobile browser >>> tapatalk & forumrunner last time I tried them out.

Tapatalk 4 though is so easy. I browse XDA on it and it's such a delight using it.

You don't like vb4? I guess that's fair. It is kinda ugly. IPB though is very slick, especially when it comes to skinning you can do so much. It wouldn't be that hard to migrate everything to there anyway. The colors are fine, now that I think about red and black would make me puke. The away kit colors are what we won on our 7 CL titles with so the color scheme makes total sense.

I guess what make the forums look out of date is just the overall layout of vb 3. I had a forum for a private server I ran back in 08-10 and I had licenses to VB, IPB and around the time vb 4 came out, I found myself switching to IPB. I guess what sold me on IPB at the time was how modern and web 2.0 it looked at the time. I'm not sold on XenForo though. You might as well just stick to VB as you can do 100x more with VB if you wanted to then with XenForo.

a logo without berlusconi is a joke .. 99.9% of you became milan fans or bayern fans because of berlusconi
