Conclusions

  • As I enter your forum site, my first impression is good. The first thing i notice was the "World Information" tab besides the "Think Tank" title. Now as I opened it, the page contains some information related to the community which I find it useful. Now let's talk about your Forum Appearance. I like how you manage to create the community however, I would highly suggest to you that try to put some forum images like banner, forum icons, and other important images that can help your members & guests understand more about your forum. Also if you can change the color and size(a bit) of the category title(structure & hierarchy) because for me it's quite hard to read since it blends to the theme color. I know that you have some major changes with the community itself, but for the activity of your forum I'd say you should work on it as soon as possible once you have finished organizing your forum. The staff of your forum is adequate since you're still starting again a new community. Your forum originality is good but I know that you can still make it even better by applying some css, javascript, and other useful codes that may help your forum unique. You have all your categories set up very good. Just a suggestion, if you could move the "introduction" section to the chit chat category that would look everything organize since I think it suits there rather being on the "Cronios" section. I did not see any grammar & spelling errors on your board. Overall, Good job!

Conclusions

  • As I entered your forum, I was mesmerized with the dark layout, as well as the profile tab, which I think is a very good idea. The World Information tab was a new sight for me, and I liked how it revealed the information of Cronius, which gave me the idea of the RPG you are having. This, for me, makes your forum unique from the others. Things that I missed in your forum are the banner and the forum icons. It'd be good if you have them to make your forum even more attractive. In addition, be mindful of your forum color choices, for there were colors in your forum which are too bright (in my opinion) i.e. the color of the bars in the "Top Posting Users This Month." Learning that this is a new community, I do suggest that you advertise your forum with other forums of the same genre to increase viewership and membership. Aside from that, interesting forum activities can be done by your administration. In connection to that, your staff is considerable as of the moment since you are beginning a new forum. Your forum organization is satisfactory, as well as the descriptions for each board. Finally, I spotted few grammatical inconsistencies; in your World Information tab. "Unstabled" should be changed to "unstable"; and the Cronius Information title in your Forum Announcements was misspelled as "Cornius". Other than that, everything is in good shape.

Post by Luffy on November 15th 2017, 12:17 am

Thank you both for your great reviews. I really appreciate your comments and thoughts and they will be taken into consideration. Now to explain a few things about the design of the forum:

First of all, about the banner, as I already told Aomine, and now I'm saying it here just to make it clear to all, I don't know what to add as a banner yet and that's why there's nothing there yet. Once I figure that out I will add something for sure.

Now for the forum icons, I decided not to add any just because there's an other feature that makes it known when some category has new post or not. For example, new posts in categories are known from the green line that shows through the category. The locked categories are shown with a black line and categories with no post stay as default.

The next thing which of course you couldn't have known is that the widgets will of course be changed because I will not be using the top users but yes I do agree with you on that point. Also, the name of the world is "Cronios" and not "Cronius". Wink Lastly, thanks for the spelling there I didn't realize that one. Nice catch. As for the activity, the forum as an RPG is not finalized yet and that's why it's not well advertised.


Anyway, thanks for your time and thank you for the great reviews provided. I'd be happy to answer further questions via PMS. If anyone else wants to provide a review, the topic will remain here for the next 7 days for anyone else who wishes to do so.

Regards.
