animesanction.net

Hi all. I was wondering if I can get some of you fine people out there to review my site. Give my any helpful suggestions you fit. At one time it was a good sized board, but DDOS and hackers brought it down. A year after I took it off line, I decided to bring it back. It's been up for almost 6 months now, and things have stayed steady but slow. I don't advertise any place. Most new members come from Google and what not.

Anyways, any suggestions / criticism are greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

You have made the classic mistake of adding too many forums to your board.
When you have too many forums it tends to make your forum look either completely dead or very slow (unless of course you have a huge amount of posting going on).

I would recommend merging the majority of them into a single forum. For example: You don't really need a separate download updates forum as you already have a site wide updates forum.

I would also recommend getting rid of your RSS poster. I looks really bad when you look in a forum and see hundreds of threads that have no replies.

The colors for your themes are decent. I only have two 'major' complaints with the themes.

- Your logo on the 'fresh view' theme looks completely out of place.
- Your graphical toolbar on the 'animesanction' theme needs a better font.

I hope I was able to help you in some way.
I can go into further detail later on should you wish it.

I'd like to get your opinion on AnimeBoards .....

Thanks for checking it out. I will make some changes to the layout as well as the forum layout.

Thanks again!

:small update:
I've combined almost half of the forums. I had 42 and am now down to 18. I can see how that would make me not want to be active... I mean, where the heck do I put anything? I've also put out a APB asking for new logo submissions from members. I have a CG guy who I really hope submits something as I'm not good with color, art or graphics at all.

I've been pretty busy as of late, but I'll get to those other things on the "animesanction" skin this weekend. (hopefully)

Also, I would appreciate your thoughts on site speed as well as anything else you can think of. I just moved hosts for the third time this month after a rash of problems. Got a VPS this time.
