    • Upon entering your site, I am greeted by a simple yet nice forum banner that blends seamlessly into the overall forum design. I also notice the unique menu buttons you have on the side of forum that follow you as scroll through the site. I like the uniqueness of the menu, as I believe it adds a modern touch to the forum. I also like the cutting-edge look and design you have to your forum; the dark and light blue color scheme is gentle on the eyes and overall very pleasant to look at. The way you have made the sections slate off at the end also adds a nice touch. This leads me into your forum originality. The design of your forum is very unique, however, the type of forum you have is very common, try to think of someway to distinguish your forum from others in it's category, perhaps you could have a 'Forum Design' service since your so good at designing forums. Moving on to your forum activity, I see you have a few members logging in everyday which is great, it appears only a small portion of them are actually posting anything. Perhaps you could entice them to post by implementing some sort of forum ‘currency’ system. For instance, for every post someone makes they get a few points which they can then use to utilize the different services on the site. This would also allow you to boost site activity at certain periods by running ‘sales’ reducing the points needed to access a particular service, encouraging people to utilize it during that time. Overall though, your forum growth isn’t bad for a forum it’s age.

      Finally, we come to spelling and grammar and user groups. Your user groups are perfect for your type of forum and while you only have 1 admin and 1 moderator as staff currently, given the size of your forum this isn’t bad. Once you fill the other staff teams as well, you will be golden in this category. Moving on spelling and grammar, I noticed one mistake and one thing you may want to consider rewording. The biggest mistake in this area I see is that you made a typo when you make the section ‘Coding Support’ It says ‘Codding’ with two ds instead of one. The second thing I noticed is that the introduction section says “Say hello in this section so everyone can welcome you on forumote!” This isn’t incorrect; However, it would read better if it said “Say hello in this section so everyone can welcome you to Forumote!”

      Overall, your forum is off to a great start, but with some minor improvements it can be even better.

@brandon_g thank you for your amazing review.

I would like to state some things.
The Points system is activated. Although this information is not shown in posts, they are activated and they will be used in a future shop. I am currently designing a shop for the forum where one can buy items in exchange with Points.
Also, I am planning to release some more features on Forumote in the future but there's no point on doing it now with so few members active. As for the grammar, I am surprised I didn't see those mistakes myself. Thank you for pointing those out.

Still a great review and I appreciate your time on doing it for me.

Regards,
TC.
