    When I go to your forum it loads very slowly for me, and that makes me think the issue is either your host, or its the mods that you are using, and I can see you use a lot of mods. Other than that I like the website, but its not fun to visit when its slow. So if you reslove those problems you will be fine.

    The forum looks great Joel and it is obviously growing very well for you. One suggestion I would make is that the layout of the images in the "Hello and welcome to Advertise Hotspot!" area at the top of the forum could do with some improvement. The way you have two images on the top row and one on the bottom, looks a little messy. Perhaps you could put all the images on a single line?

    Kaiser, thank you for the feedback, but may i know what browser you're using? I have visited my forum using Firefox and Google Chrome before, and the site takes less than 2 seconds to load completely. I see no issue whatsoever, and this is the first time i am hearing from my members that my site loads slow. OK, maybe the second :p

    Fergal, thank you very much. Well, of course i would line the 125x125 ad images up together in a single line. I wouldn't put two on top, one below. Ugly indeed! Anyway, from my view, the 125x125 ad images ( all 3 of them) are in a single line. None of them falls below. Maybe you can give me a screenshot?

    Thanks you once again

    I see the same thing as Fergal on Firefox, not on Safari.

    It also loads a little slow for me too.

    Site is loading fine for me (FireFfox/PC), and looks really good.

    The one comment I would make is that it does seem to be 75% advertising options and 25% discussion - I know with a name like advertising hotspot it's going to be about the advertising, but I wonder whether people will genuinely come to a site to look at ads (and join and participate) when the Internet is already full of them wherever you go...

    (Though maybe I'm just not target audience for this kind of site)

    Good luck with it anyway - it's obviously moving in the right direction!
