I found it easy to navigate and very understandable. It appears you put some thought into this. The simple layout and design is nice. Not overwhelming for a newbie, which is what I suspect you will get for initial members. Your TOS is a little lengthy but very clear. I actually have one person in mind that I may recommend it to after the first of the year when you go live with it.

Your site design is a template I have seen on my travels, slightly modified but pretty much still in it's original form. I hope you give credit to the original creator and not try to pass it off as your own ;)

The overall website has very nice and soothing colors.

First thing: When I go to the 'Support' Page and then click on 'Support Forum' I get the phpBB installation page. This is not good at all. Anyone has access to this and could damage it easily. I suggest fixing that right now!


Navigation:
The font is nice and goes well with the header. For some reason I dude not like the extruding effect you have on the text. I am stumped on a suggestion for fix that.

Navigation left:
The navigation on the left (hom, about, sign up, features, example forum etc) Is Well done. Just two things, Right below terms of service, that line does not match the other ones, it is thinner. Also below the left navigation, Those dots and pictures are pointless IMO. I say scratch em.

Over all you did a good job on the layout and colors. Well done.

There is a thing in the bottom right corner for that. Says design by http://www.design-service-pro.com/ and for the site where the template came from http://www.design-service-pro.com/webpa ... _free.html

Take off the counter quickly as they are the worst idea ever especially when they have that value.

Also don't know about you but I wouldn't want to be hosted by someone with a .tk domain name
