The forum home page was the first complete page I built, and looking back at it now there are some bits of it that look a little out-of-place next to some of the more recent design elements I've built. Right now, it's using the same iconography as vBulletin 3, though I have produced new, larger versions of the images with alpha transparency from my original masters so they work a lot better on variable backgrounds.

As you can see, the forumbits have moved on from their column-based layout that was used in vB1, vB2 and vB3. The new design is less rigid and allows whitespace to imply connections between data items rather than enforcing encapsulation with heavy borders or backgrounds.

Forum titles and icons are made much larger and more prominent, as these are the primary points of reference for the forums. Information such as the number of contained threads and posts is demoted to a floating line of de-emphasized data to the right of the title while last post information gets a line all to itself in order to allow thread titles to be shown without the excessive wrapping that would invariably come from the small container available in vB3.

I wonder if doing this would get my members a little more familiar with the feel of vb4 before going with vb4 when it comes out lol

Great idea, I shall look at incorporating this into my next Theme, the threadbit would be a perfect evolution to this mod, I will also request the threadbit code.
You'll be accredited if I do use this code, thanks for the share.
