    Hi! If you guys remember, we changed a lot on the site.

    We had a temporary testing of a tri-color theme that was a resounding DISASTER but I took your feedback and tried to improve upon it. We wanted to implement multiple themes (temporarily- based on event) to match the Indian festivals/occasions. This was supposed to bring awareness, context and excitement among all members.

    Since our first theme roll-out didn't went as planned, we couldn't do one for the "HOLI" on the coming Monday. Therefore, We would like to know if the previously improved theme could be applied during the festival.

    There is a poll on the top. Please provide your valuable opinion.

    Below are the screen shots of the site with the improved theme.
    There are a lot of changes especially for the desktop users so we can use the most of their screen size. Mobile users will have a limited experience only in UX (and not content) since we cannot cram all in a small screen otherwise the content will be pushed down. We still want to be known as content heavy, mature and nationality neutral.

    This will be a temporary theme. Current them is our default theme

    Yes I would enjoy to see a special temporary theme for Holi and other special festivities of India.

    Its a great idea.

    The current default theme is very pleasing to my eye as well. Great job by all involved.

    Background looks same in new theme ...

    Why not people with colours throwing around?

    So for every major festival, we are going to see new temporary theme?

    Here's my take instead of changing the theme for every festival, how about you change the logo according to the festival? say during holi, indian defence (the writing) is with splash of colors here and there or during Christmas putting snow on the words.

    The theme that we have has the Indian tricolor use. Changng the only the background will add confusion and asymmetry in UX.

    I like the idea but we have some limitations that I can't make public.

    Thanks for the idea and keep up the good work.

    A good colourful IDF logo with splashed of different holi Colors on the lines of Google doodle should be enough. As if it is overdone it will become tacky and painful to eyes. But yes every Indian festival should be celebrated on IDF to pump up the mood.

    Off the topic, Has anyone taken bhang at least once in a life time? I have taken it once during my engg college stint at UCE, Burla (now VSSUT). Fortunately there were no mobile phone and no internet!!:mrgreen:

    Have tried it more then once. Nothing significant. I don't know why there is so much hype about it. Only I felt a little dizzy and was damn hungry. I ate 2 burgers and one full plate of chowmin even then I was really hungry when I got home.
