Cool Updates to website **We want your best pics!!**

Hey Guys,

The development team has an announcement and an opportunity:

Quote:
Just wanted to give you a heads up; we are going to update the software here on 1/7/2016. Site will be down from around 9:30am to 1:00pm EST, maybe earlier. The update should only take 2 hours to complete and when it does you will be the first to know. In case there are any issues here are some things you can expect.

1) The site should be significantly faster.

We have applied every modern technique to speed up page load and tested with all modern browsers. We want the forum to be extremely fast and easy to use.

2) Mobile Friendly.

The site will work much better in mobile and tablet views.

We've started applying responsive design, and have designed and tested against android and iPhone devices, Android tablets, and iPads. If you are sitting at your desk or on your couch, or just on your phone, the site will work much better than it did before, and load fast. We are still working on improving the experience even further in the months to come, but we wanted to launch this as quickly as we could.

3) Welcome! We detailed and got a new paint job!

The homepage is bright, crisp and clean. We wanted the first page users saw to look beautiful, so that when a new guest arrives and is debating whether to join, they see a beautiful doorway, and they walk right in. We can also use this newly minted front page to showcase a Ride of the Month winner or other community related news and announcements.

4) Garages will be featured on the site

You can show off your Malibu, You can post pictures in your garage and share it with others.

5)Social Media Connect

Users will be able to register with Facebook, Twitter or Google+ meaning faster legitimate registrations.

6)We Want your Input!

We want to know what you like in an update (look and feel). What you think the community would get excited about and appreciate.

Do you want an updated, logo? A new skin theme color change? Maybe a preference in images included in the banner showing off multiple generations? Don't be Shy! We need this info ASAP!

Also looking for users' rides for the banner. Please feel free to post up images if you want them used in the banner and give us permission.
Let us know if you have any concerns. We will be here to help with the transition and any issues there may be.

OPPORTUNITY:
Looking for users' rides for the banner. Please feel free to post up images if you want them used in the banner and give us permission.

Images must be:
- High Resolution
- Clean and clear of obstructions
- Best to give multiple angles
- Doors, windows, hoods closed

Deadline: Monday 12/28 at Noon EST.

You have my permission to use the following images of my 2011 Gen7 Malibu:

Re: UPDATES TO WEBSITE and An Opportunity for YOU

I would like to see a swappable CMF main banner, so members can submit banners they've made that can be applied to the website every few months and keep things fresh. I'm a graphic designer and I'd be happy to apply a universal chevy malibu forum logo to member submissions and help make this work.

My submissions.









Really wish my state didn't have the asinine front plate law.

Re: UPDATES TO WEBSITE and An Opportunity for YOU

This forum has been wonderful to use. You don't need to make any changes at all. I would be happy if it was just black and white.
My current government employment allows me to bestow titles on deserving members of our society. Henceforth, i would like both of you to change your forum names to:
Sir Daily Driven
cp-the-magnificent
The appropriate paperwork will follow. There will not be a formal ceremony.
