I just put up a phpBB forum to replace my old cgi one. Can you guys take a look and see if there are any major problems. Also, if anyone knows a little about how to change the layout please let me know, I looked around and couldn't find anything.

:D feel free to make a few posts to help me get some content too! Thx

Maybe you should add some sort of division between each section; they are running together a bit. Other than that the site looks very good. All the icons are consistant and nicely done.

I also liked the colors on the site. Font choice is simple but effective and easy.

In my opinion, graphically it is not eye-catching enough. The logo is nice but it is basic and there is a lot of white space across the top of the page... maybe adding a patterned background image (a la OZZU's diagonal stripes here) will add a little more eye-candy to the top layer. At a glance it just looks like any other board on the net.

As we all know it's a PHPBB, so per usual seamless navigation and upload.

Get more people to post, tell all your friends etc. Board's are always more appealing when there is loads of content and stuff going on. That will come though I'm sure.

Overall, very nice. If I had to give it a grade, a definite A- in my book. Keep up the good work!

1) Add more content to your forum. Even though it is a new one you better add at least something. It make sure there are no threads with 0 posts.

2) I advised that to any site powered by phpBB. Make your phpBB a static pages forum .html - there is a mod to apply available online http://www.able2know.com/forums/about15132.html

3) You might want to add directory to your site. This will help you improve PR and link popularity and traffic. Consider aeDirectory for that or check my forum for some other great directory scripts.

4) Remove yourself from moderator of all forums. Come on, your are site admin. Better make a call for moderators. This way you will not be the only one visitors will rely on.
