I've been hard at work on my new website. So far only the email and forums are up and working. I'll soon have a place where users can upload or download free source code to help promote the open source community. But for now I'm just looking for opinions on my site and forum style. Could you guys please take a look and let me know what you think?

not much there to comment on, and the forums remind me a lot of flashdaddee. Your site's appearance blows flashdaddee out of the water, though.

looks good. I'm just seeing one button with "Link Name" as the caption, and it doesn't do anything but spawn a new instance of itself. There's no link to the forums that i can find. You may be working on it now, but i though i let you know what i was seeing at 12:12pm CST. i'm using Mozilla 0.9.2.1...

I think it's something to do with the browser. Is it Javascript enabled?

Are you stupid, Chris, or are you just stoopid.

Huh? What are you talking about?

-Edit: Oh I see, you think I posted that. Do you? If so, I wouldn't need to say that because I know my new site looks better than FD since I worked hard on it. So no, that wasn't me.

I'm not trying to start any flames/arguments with you or anyone else. I just want some opinions from people on my site's look so far. Please don't turn this into something it's not.

In all fairness, the site's main page does look extremely nice. I don't like the colour scheme of the forums though. A suggestion box is also a great idea.

Good luck to ye...

Just to clear anything up here before it even has a change in hell of getting started: AFAIK he didnt post that [unregistered post]. The IPs dont match anyways.

Chris, I've tried to have a look, but it doesn't load.

Having any problem?

Is it Javascript enabled?yeah, javascript is enabled. i'll take a look at it with Netscape after your site's back up.

If it's not loading for some, it's probably because the DNS hasn't refreshed yet. But the forums or site are not ready for normal use yet, I still need to renew my vB license and finish up some of the main site pages. It should be completed by the end of the month/year;)

OK, I'll have a look then, and tell you what I think.

BTW, I've just tried with Netscape (in case it had something to do with IE), and it didn't work neither.

The XP style stuff is nice...

fool,

Netscape's ugly too...It's funny how front page screws everything up for alternative browsers (i hate even saying alternative browsers)...if you care, why not use standard HTML. i think you can handle it ;)

Yeah I guess I could. It just takes so much longer. That's why I went with FP from the start.

I couldn't get it to load. Waited over a minute, and refreshed a few times.

Wow. That's a pretty cool looking website. I like the way the buttons work. I like the professional look to it. Did you make it all yourself?

Fool

All of it, no. I did the buttons in Javascript but the template came from a friend. He does good work, no?;)
