GD Art Forum

Posted 18 July 2009 - 05:46 AM

Hi,

I've posted a few times on this but none are really related to each other. I have this new graphics design / web development forum and would like some feedback. The link: http://gdart.forumotion.net

Somethings to consider :)
  • What color should be for the background (the blue part surrounding the forum}
  • Does it attract your attention?
  • What about the banner?

Lastly, the massive white space will be filled out if you register (sort of like member benefits), so register, just to see what is looks like :P

Thanks.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

@anyone who reads this:
firebolt and I host sites thru forumotion.com. Forumotion has a online site editor. That's what firebolt meant when he said display tab, etc.

Hey firebolt,


I'm liking the site design and logo but i find the site immensely slow i can be waiting 20sec+ just to get onto the homepage and my Internet connection isn't brilliant at 6mb/s but still that seems pretty bad. Just a heads up, have you not got your own web host?

Regards,

Tommyflint

Should be fixed now. I used an external image host which was not supported by my site so it made it lag.
