    I like the general appearance of your forum, it looks professional and user-friendly. In addition to the three sports you have listed, it might help to include a section for "Other Sports".

    Overall it looks great, good luck with it.

    Thanks Fergal really appreciate your feedback, I started of with these three just to get the forum moving . I have plans to put more sports up after it gets few members and topics. I have also included Games section so users can play online sports games directly from the forum. Thanks once again for the review.

    The design of the forum looks nice. Nice color combination used in my opinion. The logo looks nice to me and little funny. A fat guy runing, can be motivational. Why not make SportsTopic Logo SportsTopic.net insted of only Sportstopic as you said Sportstopic.com has already been registered. It might confuse the users. I see some users have signed up and starting posting. It's really nice for you get some users in just few days. I think you should try to advertise / promote your forum soon.

    Good work and keep going. And I wish you all the best for your forum. Good Luck!

    Thanks for the comments, yes i'm thinking of changing it .net and users i have registered on this forum and forum promotion I feel they are the best places to gain members from and also there is the Facebook page and twitter. So hopefully it should attract more visitors.

    Positives
    Decent forum name
    The idea of embedding sports related games sounds promising

    Improvement Suggestions
    The design - Whilst I quite like the quirky logo, I'm really not fussed on the orange design. It looks a little tacky and I think you could find something more appealing, and perhaps a little more 'sports related'.
    Lack of discussions - There's no point promoting the forum until you have quite a few more topics going on. Users will want to see a forum with lots of active discussions, not a bare website with just the occasional post. Be creative and think of new topics you can introduce. Be sure to reply to everything you can as well!
    More sports sections - As Fergal said, you could do with more sports sections. I know you want to start out small, but you've missed out some huge sports from your list. At least make a section/sub-section of 'other sports' for people with interests in other main sports.

    Good luck with the forum. Let us know how it goes!

    I like the clean look and layout. I'm not a huge fan of the orange, but perhaps that's just personal preference. Other than what the others have mentioned, I think it looks good. Just continue to tweak it and do some SEO everyday and you will start seeing some decent traffic. Wish you the best.

    I have signed up on the board as member and made a few post.

    Appearance: I am generally not like of dark themes, but the execution of this dark theme was done very well.

    Layout: It is good because the forum covers the various type of sport for Football, Cricket, and Athletics. It need more other type of sports


    Statistics and Activity: The forum has 75 Posts in 42 Topics by 10 Members. It is good since the forum is just around one months of existence.

    Conclusion: It is a great start

    SMF is definitely not my favorite, but overall you are making it work. I would try and save up for a premium SMF theme from dzinerstudio. They have some awesome choices.
