I have been putting this off for a while, but I have been testing an upgrade to the original template that VV was designed on top of.
The main reason is that the new software will have customizable user pages. I have really wanted this for you guys for a long time, and I am sure that has discouraged some new users that we don't have it.
I will have to a lot of modifications to the new template so I was hoping to get some feedback on colors for the new website.
I really think a lighter color scheme will attract a broader range of people.
Also, I would need some help from a graphic designer for a new logo. Any volunteers?
Lastly, please vent any things you dislike about the current site design so I can try to avoid these things in the new version.
You must be referring to here at 12.160. Yeah, there is lots of customization here, but I was more specifically referring to http://veracityvideos.com. There is zero customization there. The new setup would give each user a customizable page.
Veracity Videos has a few things in the works, and I thought I would give you some early information.
Website Upgrade: We are upgrading to a new website that will hopefully reach out to a greater audience and have a bigger impact. There will be no loss of content or member accounts. It will be a smooth transition when that occurs.
As a result of the new website, we will be losing some functionality, but gaining some more.
-The Forum is out. It has not provided anything useful thus far, but we can always revisit that at a later date.
-Possible functionality (might be in or might be left out on purpose), e.g. blogging and picture uploads. It is not our intent to be a social network.
****Customizable User Profiles**** This is the main reason for upgrading. I want users to have the ability of customizing their own pages. As a result, I will be featuring the most beneficial pages on the homepage.
-We might change to integrated chat functionality. Once of those bottom bars that would be similar to a social site. This would make chatting easier and less of a hassle if you don't want to chat.
