Changing Design Elements - Sorry for the mess

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm testing new design options on the site. Once I get a finished design up here, I will take some screen shots so we can all vote for the best design.

This will be going on for a week or more, so please patient.

Thanks
Ali

Doh! I thought I somehow clicked my snowboarding forum. If the other designs aren't better than what we've been working with, let's not change it.

The old design needs to go because it had a lot of spacing issues on different monitor resolutions.

Oh, this isn't the final design. That's why I mentioned in my post: "This will be going on for a week or more, so please patient."

There will be options to choose from. A standard poll will be put up with screen shots of each.

he was eluding to the mt. Hammy t-shirt design fiasco of 2007.

I actually like this basic temporary styling because it loads a he'll of a lot faster on my iPhone. Could we possibly utilize the function for multiple layouts so people can pick from whatever fancy one wins and the basic one?

with this whole layout thing, hopefully i-club will get a little more phone friendly, it only takes a few lines of code to recognize phone browsers, and a whole lot of watering down will give you guys some extra bandwidth at the end of the month due to us phone people only needing about 30k of the 500k that typically loads...

The old design was terrible for performance. It had a million images everywhere so it took time to load each one of them. Having the option for users to choose different styles is definitely something I could put in. I think what I want to do first is come up with something basic and work from there.
