Conclusions

  • The forum is nice and simple. The only thing that could make things easier would be to make some minor changes to the descriptions to each section. I, personally, would like to see them be more descriptive to ensure that there is not confusion about where each discussion belongs. Other than that, I love the simplicity of your forum. That is always something I've considered to be a "pet peeve" of mine. If I can't navigate through a site (it doesn't matter if it is a forum, blog or website) easy enough, then that will make me leave the site quickly.
  • Something I would like to see more of on your forum is activity. In addition to advertising your forum, you can make agreements with other people to do post exchanges. What I mean my that is that, as long as you and the other party agree, you can make X amount of posts on their forum and the other person agrees to make the same amount of posts on your forum. The benefit of this is you and the other person are providing activity on each other's forum to help make your own forum look more active to potential members.
  • As far as originality, I've seen other music forums but your forum does offer things that I haven't seen on other music forums. That's something that you've always got to do in order to get people to join your forum. In order to convince people to join your forum versus other forums that may have a similar niche`, you have to always be able to set yourself apart from them. Whether that's offering a unique contest or offering activities/discussions that are unique to your forum.
  • A few minor things that I think you could change. 1) I got a welcome message via PM. The title of that forum is wrong on that PM and I think that should be changed. 2) Also, the images in that PM that are are the left side of the screen (like the avatar) seem a little bit too large and are overlapping one another. I think they need to be down sized to keep them from overlapping.



Forum Strengths

  • Forum is easy to navigate.
  • Setting yourself apart from other sites that may have a similar niche`.



Forum Weaknesses

  • The forum could use more activity.

Thank you so much @JennyorAlice for your review. The forum was recently been designed and we recently changed to a different subject such as music and we're trying to do what we can to be different from others. Thanks for your feedback. I'll be sure to check the bugs of the theme and check the part with the post exchange for activity. Once again thank you so much and i hope to see you around Razz

Conclusions

  • Upon seeing the forum for the first time, I was quite impressed. It felt very detailed and well planned, however, it was missing that 'welcoming' vibe (no pun intended). I feel that this can be achieved by adding a forum description underneath the forum title and by adding a pop-up message for new members/guests. The forum appearance is very impressive. The colours work very well with each other and are easy to see. The style itself is very slick and cool. The forum header is very smart and will grab attention easily. The forum icons are also relevant and suit each section well. The forum activity is currently quite low, but this is to be expected after a forum overhaul and recreation. This is basically a new forum. To boost this, try reclaiming the members of Think Tank to help increase activity. The usergroups have very good descriptions, and are very beneficial for the members they are created for. More staff may need to be recruited to help with the rebuilding process of the forum. I haven't seen too many music forums, so it's a great place for likeminded music lovers to collate and interact with each other. However, I'd like to see something that makes it stand out as a whole. Your forum layout is neat, and navigation is easy. However, I think there is potential to use forum widgets. Placing the current Top 20 of the forum on a widget helps makes things easier to view. Lastly, the only spelling mistake I can find is in the "General Rules" section description. "Wondering" should be "wandering" unless it is spelt like that for a reason Razz



Forum Strengths

  • Forum Banner and Icons
  • Forum Navigation
