Yeah I've been hinting at a redesign for the main website for quite some time now, finally Dennis has got around to doing it for us ( I would do it myself but Dennis is so much better at Photoshop there is no point, and I'll be doing all the PHP/HTML anyway)

Dennis says he is 60% complete with it now, thats just the main theme though, we'll have different colours for each game's section of the site. I keep nagging at him to get it done :P

So far he has showed me and a few people I showed last night a preview of the header and background texture.

What do you all think? Everyone has liked it so far, comments, suggestions, questions are welcome.

Well not much to see, but he did a good banner, so I gues the site will be good. Sorry but who the hell is Denis?

Since loads of people seem to not know Dennis I shall explain (part of the reason I kept this site going he was ;) )

Back in the day (a couple of years ago) The GTA Place was beginning to be noticed, I had just bought the domain and we had PHP available, and thus wanted a forum.

At that time Dennis owned GTAXplorer.com (doesnt exist any more) and had a few mods and skins on there. We affiliated for a while and we both wanted the same stuff (forums, downloads etc.) so we merged the sites.
I got all the downloads and we decided to get PHPBB forums (that was a mistake)
We both adminned for a while. Later I learned of his awe-inspiring graphical abilities in Photoshop, and whenever we got a new design, Dennis would make the images for me, I would do all the other stuff on the site.

Dennis has always been sub-active in the past, and is now inactive on the forums, we talk on MSN though, and he's still admin because he is someone I can trust if something goes wrong and nobody else is able to sort it out.

Anyway I helped him out with PHP quite a few times, so he is now making a layout for us, effectively as a return I guess.

That's probably all you need to know. ;)

Uh-oh, copying GTAWH? ;)

They use different color schemes and a different banner for each game section.

Looks decent. I still kind of like the current layout. I'll have to see the finished product, as you haven't showed us much.

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.

Copying GTAWH? GTAgaming do the same, as do many other sites, and besides we already have different colours I just never had time to make the banners.

It was a joke... Chris. Maybe the roll eyes would've been a better smiley to use.

That new design is gonna be a big change! It might take some getting used to... It won't look like The GTA Place to me for a while - even though I know...

:mellow:

Also out of all the GTA sites I'm pretty sure we have the most abundant source of emoticons out there, as if we need even more...

Yes, this is for the main site. Why did I just answer a banned person's question?

Well, yes the website will have a new look. That was the point of this topic. Keep the forums the same, and if you do make a new skin, I'll still use OrangeGreey, it's The GTA Place that I know.
