Areas Explanations

    First Impressions: The reviewer will give his/her first impressions of the forum upon visiting the forum.

    Forum Appearance: The reviewer will give his/her feedback on your forum appearance. That includes the general appearance of the forum as well as the categories layout and organization and the general design of the forum.

    Members and Forum Activity: The review will give his/her feedback on the activity of the forum in general, meaning how often posts are posted and how often member join your forum. Because the activity is a sensitive spot on all forums this area is split into two parts. Member Activity which get the first 5 points and Forum Activity which gets the rest 5 points. The scores are summed and you get the total score of the entire area.

    Staff and Usergroups: The reviewer will review the amount of staff and usergroups the forum has and will provide feedback on staff levels and usergroups. This means all the information that has to do with your ranks and your forum groups.

    Forum Originality: The reviewer will review how original the forum is and will provide feedback and possible suggestion on how to make the forum more original. Originality is also split into two parts. The forum design as a theme and the content/type of the forum.

    Grammar and Spelling (English Forums Only): The reviewer will analyse the grammar and spelling of the forum and provide changes/edits if needed.

    Reviewer's Feedback: The reviewer will provide some addition general information about your forum. This is a similar area as the first impressions area but in this area the reviewer has seen the forum and its content and has a full idea and view of your forum. This is a general score of your forum based on the reviewer's thoughts and opinions.

There has been a slight change to the Review Section Rules. Effective immediately forums will be accepted for review regardless of the forum's language. Please note, however, that reviews will still be provided in English regardless of the forum language. Additionally, the 'Grammar & Spelling' review category will not be available to Non-English forums.

This decision was made by members of the Review Team in order to expand the service and make it available to all users, regardless of their main language.

We look forward to reviewing your forums. Wink
