Recommended Posts


some people may care, others may not but if this doesn't get changed back to a better forum theme then i'm outta here. i simply cannot cope with this shocking colour scheme and layout. only just had managed to get use to the previous version.

whatever happened to if it ain't broke don't fix it? i mean seriously...?

is there no way of getting hold of an administrator to get them to change it back?

I wish there were, but it appears to be a system-wide change. The TOC sites in the US and Australia have made the change too. They seem to be mostly happy about it in OZ, but the US site is still a ghost town from what I can tell.

This site is an effort to use now. On my laptop it's slow and the scrolling is laggy. On my much faster desktop machine, the scrolling is good, but the layout is totally knackered.

we have a good community here and it'd be a shame to lose it over something as small as a theme change on the forum but i fear users may start jumping ship to other forums.

if the colour scheme stays as it is then after i've changed my car which may be in the near future i won't be coming back to visit...

Christ one thread is fully of happy people and the other thread full of non happy people.

I will answer a few questions

  • The laggy parts will be fixed.. please bear with me I am looking in to it.
  • The are no more adverts than before, they are just in different positions
  • If people want to jump ship becaue its a different colour then that is really silly now.
  • The forum update was needed and the functions are still as before.
  • The right hand menu I am looking in to having a close feature.

Can you guys please be very constructive and list what you dont like instead of making comments like "I am not coming back" because thats not gonna help.

The colour is staying.

The previous colour scheme and theme was becoming manageable to us. We liked the colours enough despite being a little difficult to discern posts from each other initially.

The whole thing is laggy, not just parts of it - it has now become a real effort to scroll and browse.

Now because I have the coordination of a minced badger, I often overshoot the "Homepage Button". This wasn't so bad before but now when I do this the bloody screen comes up with the menu and I have to wiggle the mouse like a goon to get it to bugger off again.

People are going to leave if the theme isn't easy enough to handle. You stated that these changes were taking place to draw more people in - it works the other way too. People don't like it, people leave.

Can't really make it much more constructive, the change is simple, go back one notch! :lol:

Over on RAV4World we run Vbulletin, and give our members a choice between styles--you can choose a white theme or a blue theme that mimics our old phpBB software. We can even add more styles if we like. Give the members a choice!!

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
