    Kdog,

    With the first board, the colors are fine, though the top title banner (top left corner) looks like it doesn't fit the rest of the forum (the light green color looks out of place).

    The second (Diablo) forum is.... Errrrr....... Bright Some people will complain about the solid red and orange colors. You might need to choose darker shades so that it's not as 'confronting' to people.

    Again, you'll need to work on integrating the top left banner to fit the forum well, and produce some different buttons for vB.

    Hope this helps!

    I am all for softer colors. The colors on the second board are way too bright. I agree with BC on the text color of the banner. You may want to use a darker color, something to compliment the blue. Aslo is there a specific reason you use a JPEG? I think a GIF will create a much cleaner image.

    the first one refused to open - there's a 500 going on... the second lot are fine, but too many different colours.

    Reduce the numbers and it'd be fine. And instead of worrying abuot the colours... perhaps try and get more registered members!

    The second one I couldn't see, so this critique is on the first.
    This is my first critique, so I will try my best. Please don't take offense.

    The chart looks great! Well put together.

    Though I wonder if all that grey makes the site too bland.

    It might not be the grey that is actually within the chart, but the grey background itself.
    Your background color of the chart seems to be white, so maybe if you left the rest of the
    background white, it would work better.

    Getting rid of that grey in the logo would punch it up also. Perhaps throw
    some of that navy in with the pale green you've got going to make a match. A great
    start with the logo, but it could dazzle with the more colors. (hues of color if you are
    going with the glow affect.)

    Just some slight color changes, but other than that, site looks to be
    set up very well.

    WOW

    Nice!
    Before I start,
    I couldn't get to your second board 'coz it didn't load

    But your first board is WAY cool!
    I love that blue, and I usually hate greyish/black colors, but you have utilised them well (Oh, gray is gray in Australia)*hehe*

    I like the red hghlight, thet's what sets it off (pretty cool)

    Trust me. I KNOW how it feels to try and get a color scheme right! I have designed ez0ne.com way over TEN times!!! The last few were solely for coloring reasons. I got sick of comments. "It hurts my eyes", The color clashes" *blah*!

    I deleted my whole server!

    My honeest advice is to make sure your colors are pallete safe and to ask around what people see in different browsers.

    Mine isn't pallete safe (oops) and I have had a comment already that one of my cream colors is showing blew in opera! DOH!

    I also love the scroll bar.

    All in all your coloring is gorgeous! I love it!

    Cheers,

    MrLeN

    Nice colors - I did a similar style to yours in the web hosting forums..

    hmm, if you want to be unique I think you should try doing different colors, try doing something unique.. bright dark. whatever, try to mix the colors, sometimes you get something very interesting


    Good luck

    I love the colors on http://tmbps.allaroundsite.com/ very bold but soft on the eyes.
    The only problem is your logo! It just doesnt match the site. make it smaller and use white background for it. try adding a banner ad beside your logo to fill in the space and earn you some $change.

    The second link was broken so I will comment on the first,

    Overall it was pretty nice except for a couple of things,

    1: That graphic in the top left hand corner .. it isn't a particurlarly nice graphic and it doesn't 'fit' into the page at all. If you want I will make oyu a grphic to go there, email me robbie@iewfnet.com if you would like me to make you a graphic.

    2: Until you get more members and posts, trim down on the amount of forums you have. When a visitor comes to a site and see's lots of forums that have no posts in them, they quickly leave.


    Just my $0.02

    I hope I didn't offend you.

    I decided to just go ahead and make you a quick banner, I hope you dont mind.

    When I say quick I meant it, this took me like 1 minute.

    It is along the same theme as your other banner (plain text) but, in my opinion looks better and will hopefully fit in with your modern themed board because I have used a nice modern font.

    Here it is:



    Unfortunately I haven't made it transparent as this messed up the drop shadow.

    Its size is ~5.25kb so it is a bit over half the size of your current banner.

    I hope you like it, cya

    ok you can either read this post or the first post but this one is more detailed


    ok I updated the colors now and i am on a new server but there are a coupal things i want you to forget when your reviewing this site
    http://tmbps.allaroundsite.com

    1.forget the purple bg i'll change that later
    2.forget the banner that doest work got to fix that

    all i would like is the color review on the tables like if you like it and if there are any improvements i could make ie change this color and that.

    also heres my second board it may look kind of like vbulletin.org colors but there a little different so tell me what you think of this board to http://forums.allaroundsite.com
