    One of our Moderators suggested that very domain for a webmaster forum, back in 2009 :)

    The forum looks great, well done, I've joined and made a few posts. The only suggestions I would make are as follows;

    1. Give more emphasis to the .org part of your domain in your site's logo. People who find your site through a link or a search engine may not remember that it's a dot org domain and may have difficulty finding it, if they decide to make a return visit.
    2. The site appears to be running a little slow at the moment, perhaps it's a temporary spike or maybe you need to upgrade your hosting.
    3. A custom favicon would make your site appear that little bit more professional.
    Overall it looks great, good luck with it!

    I personally don't like the .org extension for this type of website, but it works.
    For a forum that isn't even a year old it growing very nicely. Great advertising efforts on your part.
    As far as the design goes, I wouldn't change a thing. It looks great.

    I can't seem to get on the site to review it. Any problems surfaced?

    GekiDan the site is opening fine for me at the moment. Maybe there was a temporary glitch.

    The website looks very nice, i like the nice vibrant colours, it's very welcoming.

    Only thing i don't really think looks right is the featured forum owners and the comunity advertisment area. Unsure what i think would make it better, it's just something about the placement. Centering to content in them may even do it. Just a thought though.

    Finally got the site working. Basically, I'm impressed on the awesome work done on this site, the logo, color scheme, everything seems to perfectly match each other. The ads blend just fine on the template.

    I just find the "Log-in/Sign-up" link on the upper right side seems to be unnoticeable. Well, I don't think most of the visitors won't find a problem on that since there's already a big "Sign Up" graphic on the right side.

    I really like adminforums they are a great bunch on there and will help you out if they can, with lots of people who know what they are doing they can sort most things out for any forum,

    Well done guys :)
