Quick Review - Rating: Very Poor/Poor/Average/Good/Excellent
When I first visited your forum it reminded me of a building project and I’ll tell you why. Your forum has the perfect foundations for being an excellent forum. You’ve got excellent categories, a clean looking forum and the foundations of a good looking board design wise. Let’s talk design; your design is clean but not original as currently you’re using a lot of the default images on your forum i.e banner, forum and post icons. I see in the graphics design section of the support forum you have requested a banner and I’m sure once you have your own images your forum will look more original. Secondly colour choice, your colour choice from the background down to the group colours ever so slightly look like they’ve copied the support forums style. The navigation bar is perfectly fine and does look quite professional. I wouldn’t worry about the colour scheme too much as that can be changed, although you should work to keep all images in check with your colour scheme. My advice graphics wise would be to work on creating a forum that unique you have the perfect foundations and with some original images your forum will look much more personal and definitely more original. In terms of activity, since your forum is quite new I’d work on trying to build up an active user-base as well as an active staff as you’ve got around 3 or so services so I’d make sure you have dedicated staff to help maintain those services. One other aspect of your forum I found to be slightly difficult was reading the text, I tested the text size in Microsoft word and according to that your text size is around 7.5, that’s really small. I’d be looking to go anywhere between 10-12point text size because you’ve got to remember that not everyone will have perfect eyesight and even with glasses etc people will struggle to read your text size especially if they are some distance away from the monitor. Since we’ve just talked about text size I’d like to congratulate you in telling you that I didn’t spot any spelling errors or grammar errors that were obvious although maybe some capitalization was done a little too much in some of the descriptions, however that doesn’t matter because it’s consistent. Overall I don’t have much more to say which is a good thing, as that means you don’t have many cons. You’ve got an excellent foundation to build an excellent forum with and all you need is some time, some graphics and a good amount of willpower and you’ll be able to grow a successful forum. Keep up the good work and I wish you and your forum the best of luck for the future.
