    I've been working recently on setting up http://forumcoin.com. The forum is open but hasn't been officially launched or promoted yet.

    The objective of the forum is to reward members with ForumCoin and then allow them to exchange those ForumCoin for everything from apples to zoo tickets. We have some initial offers posted already and will add more as time goes on. Members are also welcome to offer their products and services in exchange for ForumCoin.

    Please click here to visit the site and reply here to let me know your opinion of the forum.

    Is it a forum that you would consider joining and participating on?

    Have you any suggestions for improving the site?

    Did you notice any bugs or anything that needs to be fixed?

    Thanks!

    Hi Fergal, I wanted to ask you that why you have opted the same color combination for Forum Coin? You might have used something different also,means there seem to be no difference in working on Forum Coin..I think you should think a bit on changing the color..

    Thank you both for your feedback and for joining the forum. The site is brand new and the theme may change in the future, depending on the member feedback I receive in relation to it.

    I think the forum has a decent design, although I feel the forum needs more sections.

    I like "Click Here to Visit a Random Link" section, it is quite unique.

    Forum looks good and smooth design, but please try to change the mouse-hover color yellow to some other nice one.

    The forum looks good to me which has been set up using phpBB. I hope the forum doesn't get spammed as most of the phpBB gets spammed. The design looks simple to me. However it can be changed in near future with better looks.

    I just signed up there.

    I hope all the best for this good project of Fergal.

    Your forum is easy to navigate, looks like it has an active community going, and the color scheme is appealing.
    The one thing I thought needed to be changed/tweaked is your description. From an outsiders point of view you used "forum coin" 3 times, and I have no idea what it means. I understand your website is Forum Coin, but I would say that you earn points or coins for forum involvement(making posts) and referring new members.
    The description wasn't very compelling to me… but thats just my opinion

    Compare to your other forum such as BAF and Forum-promotion, this one looks plain. The theme is not that good it doesn't seem to have the feel of your other forums. However the forum does look alot like forumpromtion, but if you look at FP, the sides are nicely textured with blue colour shade which blends in nicely with the theme, if you could do the same to this forum then it will apeal more and will stand out like the rest of your forums good luck!
