[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]Quick Review - Excellent

    When I visited your forum as a guest I was quite impressed with the overall layout and design. The navigation buttons at the top are fantastic and very unique. I didn’t actually feel like I was on a Forumotion forum because the design has gone away from the very common Forumotion feel and I’ll say it was refreshing to see a forum like your one. The banner itself is fantastic I love the animation of a gokart racing around a track. At this point I did log into your forum as I wanted a better view of all your categories so I could see how your forum was laid out. Again I was impressed I love the design of the categories itself and I love the imaging you’ve placed in them and the descriptions are fantastic I love the bullet point list as it makes your forum look incredibly tidy. In terms of actual design itself, colour scheme etc I think it is clean and clear. You’ve used some really nice shades of blue and the white background compliments this nicely. In terms of the legend of your page, I think you’ve done a great job in both the layout and the spacing and I like how you’ve got your own set of copyrights and affiliates.I wish I actually had negatives to say because negatives gives you things to talk about but I’m happy to say I don’t I personally can’t criticise or think of anything you should change because if I was to sum up your site design and my first impressions in one word that word would be: Fantastic and for that reason I’ve given you the rating above. So keep doing what you’re doing because it’s working

Conclusions

  • I really liked the simplicity of your forum as shown by your theme. The icons in your board has successfully complemented with the theme, and it is pretty obvious that the theme made the forum very neat, sleek, and organized. Since it is a go-kart-based forum, I think it will be better appreciated if there were graphics in the forum related to it, as in the banner, the topic icons, or even the forum's main color have a metallic touch on it. I do understand that you have reopened your forum, so it is yet to be expected that a boost on your forum's activity will be seen. I do hope you can do something to boost this area. The number of your groups are considerable, however I'd want to view their descriptions just to know how each group works (the account given to me didn't have access to the usergroups' descriptions). I think that your forum is original, as it is a support forum for those who are interested in go-karts. I like how your forum is organized, especially that each forum has a description in bullet form. Since it seems you have edited some spelling inconsistencies on the first review, I'd say this area is flawless.



Forum Strengths

  • Forum Theme
  • Theme Selector
  • Forum Organization



Forum Weaknesses

  • Forum Graphics (relate them to your forum's subject)
  • Forum Activity






Average Review Score: 8.57

Conclusions

  • The first impressions of your forum are pleasant, but it feels a little bland. Your banner attracts attention and is very nice to look at, but there aren't many other features to help compliment it. I'd like to suggest adding a forum description and a pop-up message to help improve a guest's view on the forum. Your forum appearance is simplistic but nice. This adds onto the many colours your forum offers, but I feel that it has more potential to shine and become really glorious and sophisticated. Your topic icons are really suited to your forum's subject and they really help maintain a friendly appearance. Your forum activity is probably the area you need most help with. Your forum has just reopened, so there hasn't been some posting in a while, but there have been less than 1000 posts in the forum's lifespan of over 5 years. Since your fanbase would be quite small, a suggestion I have for your forum is to add some more forums and categories that could appeal to more people. You could also include contests to help maintain regular posting and a widget of recent posts could help showcase the activity you have. I'm sure you can capitalise on this through promotion and finding affliates. Your usergroups seem appropriate for the forum, but since I'm not a member, I cannot access them. I'd like to see a moderator usergroup, so you can create a staff team which can help you rebuild activity and expand on your forum's ideas. The subject of your forum is quite original and unique, so it appeals to a particular fanbase well. However, you need to cater for the small fanbase it is. However, your originality and features are quite pleasant. Your layout and organisation is nice, as navigation is easy and everything is easily identified. However, I'd personally like to see some widgets to help members find particular areas and showcase some of the features you have to offer. Your spelling was generally good, however, I did notice two mistakes in the Classified Postings' forum description. 'Runing' should be 'Running' and I'd suggest changing 'Other Ad not fitting above' to "Additional ad not relevant to above.' Otherwise, your forum is nice Smile



Forum Strengths

  • Banner
  • Layout and Organisation (navigation)
  • Multiple themes



Forum Weaknesses

  • Activity
  • Simple themes
  • Narrow fanbase





Average Review Score: 7.85
