IconSkouliki Graphics

First Impressions


  • The first impressions for your forum are really nice. I really like the logo your forum has and the icon next to it that is based of the season we currently are in, which is summer. I also really like the colors your forum has which are really relaxing to your guest eyes. What comes to my eyes the most are your social media icons on the left side of your forum. It is a really good addition to your forum as your forum is not member based but mostly sharing images. If I'm being honest, what mostly was missing for me, in my opinion, is a popup to be displayed while being a guest, that will show and explain to everyone what the forum is about. Not the registration and login popup, but a manual popup that will explain the use of your forum and maybe be located at the bottom right corner of your forum. That for me would be really nice and something different, as your forum!

Forum Appearance


  • Your forum appearance is really nice. As I said earlier, the logo and the icon next to the logo are really nice and shows the forum is active. I can see some work behind your navigation bar with some amazing icons, but in my opinion, what would look better in my eyes, is to have everything in grayscale and on hover to change the icon to its normal appearance. Exactly the opposite as it is now. Also, the tabs that are active to have a blue icon. Example, if I'm viewing the portal, the portal icon to be blue, and if I'm viewing the forum, the forum icon to be blue. That for me would be even better! Last but not least, I would suggest making the black shadow under the information bar that is under the logo with less black color. A gray color to that black shadow would make it look like it's a shadow and not like a border. Lastly, I think your sub-categories that are visible to the index should have a space between the icons before them. Other than that, amazing job!

Members and Forum Activity


  • You members and forum activity is at a good standard. I understand there are not a lot of categories where members would post and therefore there's not much activity as for the forum activity. That makes me think of a suggestion for your forum. The suggestion, that in my opinion would be something good for your forum, is make the main sharing categories members viewing only. Not all of them but most of them, to be hidden for guests so that your guests register and that way, you'll rise the activity of your members. Now for the posting part, some special ones, such as ranks, could be, in my opinion, hidden so your members have to say thank you or something similar to rise the post activity as well, because viewing it now, there are about 3 - 4 days without posting and less than a handful members who logged in. Other than that, great work and amazing graphics.

Staff and Usergroups


  • The staff and usergroups are perfectly fine for me. You have simple groups that everyone understands their usage to the forum even with reading the title of the group. Since your forum is a hobby of yours and there's not much of a member activity to it, there is no need for more groups to have them there just to fill out the space. The Administrators, the Support Teams and your Members are more than enough and fill in the forum as it should. Now if I have to be very detail fanatic, which I am, I would add one more group for the active members. Just that. Not too much and not too little. This though could be a special rank too but preferable for me, I'd like to see let's say, the active members, something like a honor for being active, a pink color to their name. That would make the difference. But still, as it is now it's perfectly fine. Great work!

Forum Originality


  • For your forum originality, I have to say, even though I've seen other graphics forums and other similar skins with yours, the one you personalized is more creative in a way you understand by looking at it, that the forum will be graphics. That for me is unique to your forum because the features and the details you added to it, such as the car and the personalized icons and footers are great icons and great images that fit the skin perfectly. In a coding side of view of your forum, there is a lot of work put into it and this shows up to your forum just fine. The organization and the general design of the skin with the added features and the special details, makes your skin unique and your forum looking even better. This is what someone has to do with a skin. Personalize it based on their preferences and make it as unique as possible! Simply amazing!

Grammar and Spelling


  • The grammar and spelling in your forum are amazing. There are no major issues with your grammar and spelling but details matter to me and to my eyes. Razz In my opinion, the copyrights part should have the s to the word Copyright. So it should be © Copyrights 2018, IconSkouliki. to be accurate because your skin have multiple changes and features, I think the word copyrights is fitting better. Lastly, in the License tab right before the footer, you have the information about the copyrights, there is this part in it: "Backlink to https://iconskouliki.forumgreek.com/ REQUIRED ." when for me it's missing an "is" right before the word REQUIRED to have the result: "Backlink to https://iconskouliki.forumgreek.com/ is REQUIRED." and remove the space after the word required too. That is all I've noticed as of details. But overall, amazing work once again. Congrats.

Reviewer's Feedback


  • The forum as a forum and its content has potentials to rise and go really high. The skin and the features to the forum are amazing and keeps your guest attention going all over the place. This is very nice because you can't stop staring at the amazing art work added to the forum and the design of it is even better. The only thing missing from me, is activity to rise the forum even more. Maybe with some hidden sections, in my opinion, it could attract more registrations and get more members logging in every day. That for a guest is a plus sign, because if there are people logging in to the forum, it means they have something to look at and they like what they see, so someone could register to check out what others are looking at and looking for. That way, you get registrations more often. But still, the forum as it is now, it is very pleasant and really good. Job well done!
