I hope I'm not breaking any rules here, we at 3DWizards just finished a new forum addition to the website (when I say .. just finished, I mean it, 0 posts), the forum is allot like this one but graphics, web and video oriented only
Good luck with the forum. My impressions are I don't like the dark blue background. Might be just me but I wouldn't want to read a book or magazine with print on dark blue pages, same with a web forum.
You already have a post introducing your new forums in the Multimedia and Graphic Design area of SitePointForums. You aren't allowed to post duplicate threads, so I will close this one and leave the one in Multimedia and Graphic Design open.
If you'd like to receive reviews and gain constructive criticism on your new forums, I suggest you hold your site for review in our Web Reviews forum. You can get advice from other web and graphic designers there. You have to review three other designer's sites before you can have your own critiqued, but it really will help you gain comments and feedback on the opening of your new forums.
