Not bad at all, nice and clean. Not to sure why a Infractions forum is visible on the forumhome page though.

Also the site needs a bit of optimization, as seen here, http://www.webpagetest.org/result/140321_MC_106M/

thanks as always ozzy!

Q: Why are you hosting the header image 3rd party? This call:

Ok... Overall effect is pleasing. I was taken aback temporarily by the orange catbg bars but combined with the forum icons and the "cloth" background, it is altogether a nice effect and fits with the niche.

I would combine "Love, Sex and Relationships" with "Soul, Mind and Body" and find a clever name for the category, since these all go together. You have a bit too many categories and forums and I would be looking to consolidate them where feasible. Example: I would make 'member photos,' 'dreadtube' and 'room 101' subforums of 'general chat.' Just shorten the page a little bit.

Overall it's a nice looking site - I've definitely seen alot worse, good job.

I won't go into the plethora of optimization work it needs since I see my pupil in that arena is already on the job! But will let you know that 1.5 megabytes is way too heavy. Try to lose at least 600 kilobytes.

Looks good, and although it has been said a million times to you optimization would help as an international visitor (such as myself, down here in New Zealand) can feel the slightly sluggish load times (although if you are indeed aimed at UK members it's probably not so bad).


Also the "Dreads UK Awards" forum is missing the icon that the rest of them have, just a heads up
