The current IMG layout is a bit old, I thinks it's been there since 2005. Are their any current plans  to give it a slight makeover?

I think its older than that... maybe 1999.

I cannot really divulge our future plans (its a secret! ssssssssssh), but this topic has come up often in-house. We are all in agreement the site is fugly and old. The forums actually put the whole rest of the site to shame ;)

There is sadly no bandaid fix. The underlying code is so horrifically rigid and static, written eons ago hurriedly when php was in its infancy. I am actually surprised it still functions with all the php server updates that have happened (so many depreciated warnings in the logs haha). The core of the site needs a rebuild, along with a new template and look. So, no quick fixes :(

Honestly doesn't bother me, I'd rather see the energy spent on more original content.

Good interface is good but content is king.
