PunBB Design (Complex)

PunBB Design
 
First Impressions

  • Your forum looks very sleek and professional. Your forum features complement with one another, making them easy to the eyes. All important things a member should be using is made easy and available at a glance, thanks to the widgets. Aesthetically speaking, the colors and images used are very easy to the eyes. If you were to ask me, your forum would be my type. Maybe adding a log-in pop up would do a great job in improving your forum because for me, as it was my first time to visit, I had trouble finding the log in until I saw it at the upper right portion. With that in hand also, you can inform the guests about what your forum is all about especially for the first timers. To wrap it up, your forum is near perfect.

General Forum Appearance

  • I really love how your forum appear to my eyes. The colors, images, almost everything was so pleasing I couldn't ask for more. You have made me appreciate the use of Font Awesome on your images. The icons fit perfectly to your forum. Looking at your forum post icons, they all serve their own purposes for your site. I'm up to suggest to create a difference between your Announcement and Sticky Icons for they are exactly similar. Another suggestion that I would like to make (and optional for you to implement) is to have a default avatar. Other than that, I am very happy that your forum is simply elegant design-wise.

Forum Activity

  • The number of topics and messages and the recency of member visits makes me say that your have a moderate forum activity happening. However, there are members who have been a member in your forum for quite some time but has posted a little whenever they do so, or not at all. I commend the active participation of your staff when answering your members' queries. To help boost your moderate forum activity, I'd suggest that you provide more interesting topics (e.g. tips and tricks not yet found from other forum sites, more sophisticated javascript/html/etc. tutorials) to discuss with, forum contests, race to awards, affiliating with very active forums, and/or even availing for forum packages.

Staff & Usergroups

  • You have a considerable number of usergroups in your forum. Let me suggest that you add and improve the description for each usergroups to provide a clear understanding on what their purposes are. Instead of having #HighRated Members as the description for Premium Members, why not write in there the things the said member can avail when s/he is a member of that group?Lastly, again, I would commend the participation of your staff when it comes to addressing your members' queries.


Forum Originality

  • So far, I would say that your forum is unique, and that I have never seen any other forum similar to yours. Though the icons and the prefixes are somewhat similar to the other forums that I have visited, I think it does not defeat your originality as a dedicated forum for PunBB users.

Forum Layout & Organization

  • I love the way you have organized your forum. Just one suggestion here: Put up a forum dedicated for archived threads for organization purposes.

Grammar & Spelling

  • So far, there are few minor things that I would like you to edit. For forum descriptions, in Forum Announcements, Showcases, and Members' Introduction, make it a period instead of a comma after and capitalize the first letter after that; In Forumotion Skins, I'd suggest that you use this one as your description, "Download new, fresh and good-looking skins exclusively for your Forumotion forums" and "In your "Requests","Do you need our help to create a perfect image for your forums(or you're just too lazy to do it on your own)? We will help you with that. Feel free to request it here"; in your "Question and Problems", add Do in the first sentence (before You) and in your "Discussions", remove A after ask. With regards to your "Staff Supervisor" description, I'd propose the following: They are high-ranked users next to administrators who can moderate the whole boards and staff members.
