Work has officially begun on V5 of the DBolical sites. Our goal is keeping the same layout with minor improvements, that focus on usability, responsiveness and mobile support. At the moment we are testing various CSS frameworks to see what works best.

Rules

  • We are in the extremely early stage of development!!!
  • So expect bugs, glitches, unfinished work and all manner of issues
  • Right now we are just exploring ideas, nothing else
  • So ignore problems and let us know what you like / dislike
  • Remember nothing you see here might be used, so don't get too upset if you like/dislike something
  • The more feedback you provide the better

I think that the top red bar should have the glitchy-looking red texture seen in the normal mode...

The grey is missing its black polka dots texture. Mhmm...
Just more polka dots in general really.

Being honest, I do actually really like it. It needs some work, that's for sure. I feel it could be more personal... but strangely I can't figure out how to suggest creating that feel, will think on it some. But I do like it and it feels in line with what we should be aiming for moddb. <3

I've started using it and for the things that I've noticed :
1_there's no title or name above video and images I think that's odd "what's the meaning in nameing it if the name will not show up"
2_when pointing the mouse to the arrows that point to the next image/vidoe it changes its shape to two headed arrow <-> I don't know if this is normal !
3_in member profile in the Avatar space the Avatar kinda small compared to the space around it,and no more country flag?
4_I think I like the darker theme and colores and the black background ,the gray is a little ....
5_I think ModDB logo in the top left should be bigger to stand out while the notifications icons should be smaler ''my opinion''.
6_a customized head banner for profiles/pages would be better.
7_this one is my opinion,while you're on it why not making the option of good/bad karma to an image/video as well.
*that for now if I see or think of any thing I will notify by comment*
((all of the above are my personal opinion))

I've noticed that the search button is no longer next to the search bar. I am sure this is a temp misalignment ( Ibb.co ) . Also, I just noticed that there is no "threads" button next to our "messages" button anymore. This was quite convenient to have.

I believe you made all the colors' hue a bit darker? I have noticed a change the past week or so but I can't pinpoint it :P . Still activating the beta version every time it de-activates itself, loving the new style.

Just tried it, it looks OK but I do have the following questions:

1) Is V5 going to support multi-monitor setup and ultra-wide monitor?
2) Is V5 to be ...DB only or will it be available for Gamefront as well?
3) Will V5 feature the option to choose our own colouring or does it come with some default basic colours?

How's the progress going? I've been putting off the development of custom pages for some mods due to V5 being in the works. Is there at least a very rough estimated date for release, so I know whether it'd be a waste to work on custom CSS at this point? I'm curious to see how, and if, it has changed since last time as well.

After a bit of testing, here's my big opinion:
Everything seems to be fine, just add banners behind names.

Definitely think there needs to be a dark theme. This is a lot brighter than the previous theme and it's definitely hard to look at for someone with more sensitive eyes, like myself.
