PS: I am sure we can dig up the gallery section, especially the pics from the early meets :)

Never knew you had the old homepage, i knew the blog existed tho but you cann-ed it
I think the old website is better because it's more pro, not a casual blog type of feel
I voted for the old homepage. Maybe an update with the mug shots & gallery would go well??

Personally, i like the current one. Jump straight to the point. Could just have a link somewhere to the blog for people that's interested.

For those who want to come straight to the forum instead of going through the homepage.
It's the forum homepage. I will sticky that somewhere in good time.

i like the older one..
*there aint no school like old school :P
I don't think the new design works very well for the homepage. The way I see JDMST, it is very community driven. I think the old layout would be the way to go if indeed the homepage is to be revived, perhaps with some modification.
Forum - the link can really stay as it is, pretty self explanatory.
Featured Rides - there are plenty of superb looking cars on JDMST, there doesn't necessarily have to be one featured every month like a magazine - but choosing members cars once every few months might be an idea, getting people really involved.
Gallery - this maybe could be changed to JDMST and related Events/Meets gallery or something similar. Everyone takes pictures at events/meets, there are plenty of pre-made gallery scripts available to use. So why not get the community involved and put up the coolest pics taken?
Downloads - This section could be added at a later date. Could consider some kind of collaborations with the pro photographers for wallpapers etc?
Mugshots - Not really needed?
About Us - pretty self explanatory.
Shop - Stickers, posters, shirts?
As you've said yourself before, you really want to keep JDMST a positive community, there is no real other way other than getting everyone involved, or feeling like they're involved.
I know it may be easier said than done, but I hope what I've said gives you some ideas. If you need help with web related stuff, let me know.

I do prefer the old design but I would like to still see the blog/lastest JDM news in there somewhere.
Maybe could make it another button like forum, mugshots, etc etc
That wouldn't really be an issue.

Well the old design does have a news column, it's just text based though and not like the blog which had images.
current one.. current one is different! love it

Yes I've already placed the old front page on the site now everyone. Consider the poll ended.
24-01-08, 04:35 PM

The old homepage is new to me. I think it looks great!
Oldskool is the best skool :)
Whatever you do... keep it... I loved the homepage and was sad to see it go.

My fav thing about the old homepage...
The "About us" section...
Where it has a little about the guys/gals mainly behind JDMST and it comes to:
Zi Tian (z10)
Zi sleeps, eats, and runs JDM YARD, that's about it... really.

lol jsutin ill send you a new about us for me... it need updating :)
Justin, just something I've noticed about the forum/homepage whilst browsing. A little bit of a bug i suppose. When you come to the homepage (http://www.jdmstyletuning.com/) and click on the forum link, it loads the forum up. But it doesn't change the url up in the address bar too (http://forum.jdmstyletuning.com/) Just a little annoying when you hit the refresh button in the forum, and your re-directed to the homepage.
