Not bad. clean, but it doesn't really catch your attention. Maybe you could add a little more color or contrast.

It's kind of hard to review a site when it's phpBB using a templated aesthetic.

I find it offensive that you've copied some of Ozzu's category and category descriptions, almost verbatim.

The strategy you're using to reciruit moderators, and therefore members, is really the only thing I can find here that merits a review. On that subject, I think in the end it will turn out not to be a good idea.

I agree with dM. Seems to resemble this website almost exactly. When creating a website, you should ask yourself: Why will people come to my website? and What does my website offer that nobody else's offers? To me, that webmaster forum will never make it because there are a million just like it that are already established. Why would I go there instead of ozzu.com?

looks good for a start. you can prolly find and make some changes to it as you go along.

most important of all (which some of us are struggling here as well)
- can you make your site popular?
- can you entice members?
- can you create a community out of yr site?

thats the thing about having forums... yeah mainly..

It's sharp - maybe use the monochromatic thing you've got goin on to draw attention to buttons/logos by using brighter colors on KEY things...? maybe?

That was the first thing i noticed too before I even read everyone's reply.
Site format and colors are great but I think its ridiculous u cant even think of your own categorys and forum boards. *shame* woulda been nice otherwise!

the descriptions are too long... im running at a very high resolution at the moment and some forum descriptions are three lines long! this stretches the rows too much.

i agree with pretty much everybody else that bringing something new is the difference between a successful site and an unsuccessful one.

Another pointer- New forums should only start with a few categories - later on is the time add more forums.
