Can someone give me some feedback please? Smile

Your site isnt open and what is it?

Sorry. I left the board closed when I had to go out. Sorry about that. Smile

Landing on your page, I can see no indication of what AIO stands for - I assume it's an acronym. Even if you expect your target audience to understand it, we might not, so you should (at least) tell us here.

What I suggest is the use of xThreads for your Marketplace especially, though that is just me.

Also, consider your guests. I am looking at your site and see no immediate call out to join. Whilst some can see it as a good thing, you have no immediate content to market yourself on. Place a small, unobtrusive banner - I don't mean to make 50% of the height of the user's screen be taken up by a banner telling them to join. Perhaps a simple notification, like an alert bar saying "Hey, you're not registered. Have you considered it?"

On my first glance, I assume you're a General Discussion forum. Please tell me what your Unique Selling Point is? Why should I join you over another General Discussion forum?

On a lighter note, I applaud you for a lack of sections (no sarcasm). So many times we see a forum for Computers, then a subforum for Macintosh, Windows, Linux, and every other OS under the sun. Good job on keeping to a few.

Forumdisplay- your "Post Thread" link is black, in total contrast to the rest of the theme. IMHO, it does not link to anything visually, I would perhaps make it a red color like your thead. Same with Post Reply.
Please don't PM me for support. Smile

Thanks.. I will get a new banner for that. I can't think of any other way. Smile

What/how do you mean?

I've thought about that but I thought it would be too needy and I don't have any idea where to put that.

All In One. Smile All general forums have their own unique selling point and many of them are very similar. I guess it would be community.

It used to be red and people kept telling me that there was too much red. The color changes from white text to red when hovered though. Smile

Very nice theme, since it a few times. What's it called?

Currently your Marketplace is just a plain old forum, where the trades are posted as threads. If you use the xThreads plugin, you could take it beyond that and create a full fledged trading forum. Take a look here. If you're still confused, PM me and I'll explain more. Smile

He has XThreads installed Seabody - you can see that as he has a video gallery.

I think - that there is actually no need for a fully fledged set up until he gets some more posts in there. I have used the trading forum layout and it is good, but it takes a fair bit of discipline to stay on top of it.

The thing with that is it's built for more physical items than virtual which I think people would be more likely to sale.
