Conclusions

  • As I entered your forum, I was a little impressed with how your site appeared to me. The various images of the cats would obviously hint that your forum should be fond of cats. To make your forum strikingly amazing, I'd suggest pimping it out a bit and choose lively colors, for the gray colors that majorly dominated your forums make it seem bland. In general, your forum appearance needs a bit of tweaking. I would suggest that you consider transparency issues in your forums so that the background will be appreciated. Also, why not consider creating topic icons that are related to cats? Other than that, I loved the cat icons, and it is my first time to see such thing. Considering that your forum is newly founded, I may put to consideration the number of members and messages/ topics that you currently have. So far, as I have observed, your members visits are recent but watching your topics, there are more views than replies, which could possibly mean that you have a mild forum activity. Try to divulge in interesting topics and the like, and maybe affiliating in related active RP forums to boost activity. In you usergroups, I believe the number is reasonable since you are having a Role Play forum. Consider writing brief and concise descriptions for each group because as what I have noticed, it seemed that your descriptions simply repeat what its name is. As for your forum originality, I can say that this is my first time to see an RP forum related to cats. Maybe putting additional useful widgets will make it more unique and stand out from others. Though there are a lot of RP forums in the internet, think of ways that will make your forum stand out from the others. With regards to your forum layout and organization, I can see that you have a lot of categories and forums which makes one user to keep on scrolling. You may opt to merge some of it (example: General and Announcement Categories can be merged into one and entitle it collectively). Lastly, there are few minor things that I want you to look into in terms of grammar and spelling. Do not forget to add period at the end of a sentence (I am referring to you forum descriptions). In your "Member Announcements," it should be you're, not your.

    Good luck to your new Role Playing forum!
