INTRODUCTION
My Forum is a Football (Not American football) Fansite Forum for a Team in the UK call Tottenham Hotspur aka Spurs who are in the Premier League. Have got 1500+ member, and did have over 50,000+ posts but due to problems with a back up and changing server we lost many posts, but was able to save 10,000 of the posts thanks to the help on the SMF forum :)

FEEDBACK
Likes: My colour Scheme
Dislikes: lack of info on front page and want to make it more interested for guest to make them stay longer

Nice looking site there - yeah I agree you could do with more on the front page - I'm not sure what, but a lot of footy sites seem to try selling kit and memorabilia etc...

BTW congrats on the 9-1 win :)

Yeah, the site looks great if you ask me.  I'd say, if I was a fan, that there's enough on the FrontPage to keep me occupied.  What's important is to have stuff on the FrontPage that will make your fans want to look inside to read more.  Perhaps a current News board set to show on the Front Page for a teaser, maybe with 100 to 150 characters in each post.  Id say you've got the start of a great site there though. :up:

SN,

I gotta say that I am ver impressed with your site.  It looks fantastic and I can't think of anything that would improve it though I'm sure that you will keep working on it and make it even better.  It looks even better than it did before. O0

Thanks ZP :)

Still needs some little tweaks here and there. In IE it doesn't look to great & working on a search bar within a top Block.

My aim was to go for more content this time

Site does look great. The only thing I noticed is some spelling, but I wonder if that is just a pun on something I know nothing about. lol

The text in the logo, register today and visit forums,

the edge of the font or text, doesnt look smooth like on a .png image.

It may not be the case. maybe is my browser..

Indeed, a great looking site! I noticed a spelling error in your scrolling title/news thingy.

Looks great to me too.

Images look fine to me in IE8.  Only one thing I noticed though, those two big  "Register Today" and "Visit Forums" links open a new window when clicked.  Might annoy some people.

Nice work. ;)
