Interesting hacks. I guess my first feedback is your RSS link doesn't work. At least not the way it should. Your board theme is not much different than almost all phpBB themes including my own. Somehow they all look the same, but your's looks like a nicely modified version of subBlue or subSilver. If you did that on your own, my kudos. If you didn't, then you should at least give credit to the style author in your footer.

Not sure why you are asking for feedback here now when you already have over 700 members. One would think you already have it together. Looks like you're doing pretty well in my book.

What do you want us to review? Your site is merely a regular phpBB forum that uses the Igloo template with a bland logo and removal of some things including the line that gives credit to the template's creators.

The whole notion of giving a review for this site, whose design and interface has not one bit of originality, is confoundingly absurd.

Could you be more specific about this? I am able to read it in my aggregator.

I don't remember taking out the credit info when I installed the igloo style. But, anyways, I stuck it in there now.

I believe sites can always improve. And I'm always looking for suggestions on how to enhance the site.

Nothing much to review, it's mainly just a PHPBB forum like Sam Hughes mentioned above. Web Reviewing usually requires a web developer who has created a design and a website and wants a review. But if that's the all you're gonna do, I think the logo needs a lot more improvement than some regular text with a line beneath it.

I guess that subject is one of the best choices you can make to create a quickly growing forum - people on either side are adamant about their views!

Not much customization done though.

fiarly simple and the colors are easy on the eye. I would think it will do well based on what you want people to debate
