Before I start I just want to state that my review may be slightly biased. I work at a Pharmaceutical company and have to deal with validation and all that fun stuff every day. With that being said lets get rolling
Browser: IE 6
The logo is very professional and blends well with the overall theme of the site. You have good brand recognition here, and you are carrying it to the forum icons as well to keep a very uniform look over the site.
The Google link at the top is a nice touch (Is that the mod from vB.org or a custom job?) Having the results integrate into your site is a nice touch.
Content wise you have a lot of forums, and the threads are spread out so far that it has an empty feel. I can understand what you are trying to do though, and I do not feel it is a bad thing, but you will have to put some extra effort into keeping the forums active, at least until you get more traffic.
The forum theme is nice, but it is still using the default blue vBulletin buttons for new posts and such. These should be redone to match the rest of the site.
The topic is a niche topic, but it is the first forum that I have seen that focuses on this area. This is a good thing
So far I think you have done a great job. Focus on some of the remaining buttons and getting more content and you will have a great community on your hands.
The content you already have is very well done and of good quality. Keep up with that level of content and the site will become a valuable resource.
I know with the company I am at, a lot of this is done internal and with assumptions that everybody knows how it works. A forum such as this will be a welcome resource to some of us. I know I will be bookmarking it and checking back now and then
What i see here is too much text but insufficient banner or graphics..to spruce things up.
The Free downlod text is too small in relation to the explosion image.
and also an extremely long first page...
it's tough to scroll down all the way and not quite easy to the eyes
