Bad News

Well we tried our best to retain everything during migration but we lost  a few

We have been working with Motoroids behind the scene for quite some time. One of our core goal was to enhance the experience in Motoroids forums. Do leave us your feedback, this is work in progress.

The bike does not define you, but the actions you perform while on the bike do.

Looks interesting, but can we go back to standard fonts on both the front end AND the editor?
The font scheme needs some work, they are too big IMO. The rest seems nice and fresh!

Well its a all together a new system so expect changes, we tried to keep the differences to minimum :)

Font size was standardized for content view, its more of a usability than looks. Usually the size is set to 100% but we have restricted to 90%. We agree the change can be little difficult but once you get use to it you will never want to go back to old size. Give us a chance please :)

And yes its still work in progress.

We follow 5 thumb rules in design when it comes to Content viewing.

one suggestion on my end would be to change the white to a little bit grey. Maybe its me, but its bit too bright on my eyes :)

IMO the font especially in the body of the messages need to be shrinked to 90% (or 80%) they are huge! Rest is ok!

Siddhart, can you also look into the paramter for number of images allowed to be posted.
We need a higher number there for our touring friends :P

lol ;)

Wiki is useful but it was getting very difficult to import to IPB without making major mods.
Hence we decided to keep it as a back burner while we work on something very important.
