|The second forum review - by Forumotion|
I report you the review as it is:
Reviewed with Google Chrome
To start off, I'd like to say I love the clean look of your board! As I shoot a quick glance down your forum index, the 3 words that come to mind are: organized, simple, and professional. The nice, matching forum icons give your site a nice dose of color and the overall color setup is excellent for reading. Nice features such as the well designed menu/navbar up top sets your forum apart from others. The overall aura of your forum creates a feeling of uniqueness that is sure to draw members to your site. Nice work.
With the sophisticated graphical style of your forum, it's a little surprising to see the amateurish "Members Online For The Past __ Hours" set to 99. I would recommend no more than 48 hours, a number that looks much better to the eye. You have a good enough design of the board to start an active advertising campaign and to start spreading your forum name far and wide.Moving onto the forums and threads themselves, I can see they are fairly active. Each forum section should have new content everyday, something your forum generally achieves. Continue working on seeking an active and large member base witch members who will be more than happy to contribute quality content onto your board.
I see your staff usergroups is styled similarly to the support forum's, which is good. However, nearly half of your staff hasn't been online for the past 99 hours. If this happens consistently, you might want to consider advertising to increase members, then hire more staff. While staff cannot be online all the time, you shouldn't have staff members who rarely come in to contribute and moderate the site. Keep this in mind when hiring your staff usegroups later on.
Original and sophisticated, your forum stood out to me among many coding sites. Continue your hard work and I thnk you will achieve great success.
Keep up the good work!
Regards and best of luck,
