  • Feedback

    • Right away I'm greeted by a fairly large image in the header which is the logo. I like the logo, and I also like that you are a forum administrator that updates their logo to match the current season, or maybe even a current event. Let's say if a new TV network launched, you can incorporate something into your logo to keep it fresh! For the statistics of your forum, I'd say that for being on for nearly five years, I would have liked to see more posts having been made, but I know that there have been times where posts were deleted. The struggle though is that with the originality of the forum, there is hope that it would have had more activity. The activity list seems to show that you have not been on in at least two days which I think can put a damper on the forum. Even if you are not posting everyday even though you should, I still say you should be checking in daily to make sure everything is in order. Again, I really think that with the numbers of both posts and active members, that really does work against you in inviting new people to join. Moving on to the appearance aspect of your forum, I always love blue themes and the contrast between blue and black really works well. One suggestion would be to adjust the font found in the category headers, and also the forum titles as while the font is nice, it just seems to stick out with the different font found in the forum description and so it does not flow. Your utilization of a Halloween theme though however is quite good, so another good job on getting your design to match the current time. Your Staff and usergroup set up I think is quite well, but I would like to see your own twist on usergroup names to match the niche of your forum. Administrator can be something along the lines of Executive Producers, and Moderators could be called Producers. You want to make it look different rather than just using the standard usergroup names if possible. On a good note, your forum appears to be free of any spelling or grammatical errors, so that is a good find. In closing, I recommend really getting out there to advertise your forum and show them that this is a niche that I'd say should be more active since everyone is streaming these days, but you will need to get more activity flowing through there first to make it stand out.

Thanks for the review Gio.

A couple things: one the category headers are now the same font as the descriptions (I fixed that a few weeks ago). The 2nd thing is that I normally check the forum at least everyday, but I been busy with work and school stuff and it has been hard lately. I do advertise on Facebook and Twitter, but the problem has been converting the traffic it has (and it does have traffic) into members.
