    I am making a custom Vbulletin theme for my forum www.gyancentral.com/forum due to the following reasons:

    1. It had limited ad space

    2. It was not clean and did not fit in with the colors I wanted

    3. The theme did not go across well on the mobile

    I have finished the homepage of forums - http://www.mygyan.me/forum/forum.php

    Please give your feedback on the new design (kindly ignore the forum structure as on the dev site, I do not have the live database)

    The design is very nice, I'm not a fan of purple as the color choice but it seems to work for your site. The only thing I would suggest is make the forum icons a bit smaller.
