My website, DarkForum

Posted 01 August 2006 - 03:09 PM

Hi to all! Just a post to show you my website I made entirely from scratch. I named it DarkForum and it's a community where everyone can learn and share knowledge, and it has many features if you register:

-PM's
-Start topics and polls
-Reply to topics
-Edit your posts
-Friend and contact list
-Search
-Profile
-Games
-Code snippets (possibility to add comments)
-E-mail notification of PM's (optional)
-Password recovery system with secret question and answer
-Chat! (no need to refresh, the ajax scripts make it live and it works like MIRC, so the slowest computers will be able to support it, create and join any channel you want) :)
-18 forums about different aspects of programming
-Many other sections
-And much more...

*BTW: Registration is 100% free.

I know it's only a beginning, I am the only member up to date, but I hope my community will grow. The URL is:
http://www.darkforum.t34.biz/

Please tell me what you think! Thanks in advance.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

alpha02, I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you want us to review your site since we don't allow posting of personal sites outside the site check forum.

So.... thread moved to site check.

Man I'm gonna be nice here and just simply say that your color choices make the whole thing totally un-readable. Work on that then you can move on to other things.

Yeah FA is a great community dedicated to providing community administrators and staff with great resources to better their site. ;)


It's simple, it works... But it looks a bit out of date and unfinished. Maybe replace the blue with white, and the green with a gray or something, and get a nice header going in there.

Also I'm Mozilla 1.7 user but I'm currently Beta Testing Microsoft Windows Internet Explorer 7 and having that message pop up telling me to use another browser becuase IE isnt a 'real' browser or whatever, thats really lame and annoying.

Most of the internet still uses Internet Explorer and having something like that may drive some to not visit the site again.

The links are WAY glowy and muffled - hard to read. I know you are going for the whole dark thing and what-not, but I would suggest putting a lot more lighter colors in to balance it out some. It's overwhelmingly goth right now.

Also I find the pop-up dissing IE hilarious (not that IE is better) since the site actually looks better in IE than it does in FF.
