I didn't think to check all you asked (although site loaded quickly for me) but the overall look is pretty slick! "I see what you did there" and all that!

Nice layout all around

Overall, I like it. You do appear to have an empty "Social Sharing" module at the upper right-hand section of the page. That I would address. Otherwise, the appearance, layout, and navigation are all very nice.

Nice job. The page read flows smoothly and responsive design seems to be very well done.

I always like reading your replies on this forum, it always contains a bit more funny and make me think more, especially on this reply.

Thanks for liking forum layouts!

If you have more than 5s and free time, I would like to have your reviews on other things on our forum.

Cool reviews!

Can I ask, what do you mean for an empty "Social Sharing" module on top right sidebar on my forum?

You mean I should remove it and replace with other parts? or does it have any issues when you view Facebook box on the forum?

Yes it has a responsive design which needs for mobile devices and mobile search. Seem you are a fan of responsive templates? Does a forum need to have a responsive theme and it is important when you are viewing a forum?

I wouldn't go so far as to say a fan. As far as NEED, I don't think so as long as there is an automatically detected and implemented mobile theme/style in place. Mobile viewers are a very large percentage of today's websites and forums. If I go to a vb3 or vb4 forum on my phone that is not responsive or does not have a mobile style in place, I simply leave that forum. I don't bother viewing vb.org on my phone for this very reason. If I'm on a desktop, I couldn't care less if there is responsive design or not.

You are right, if a forum does not a mobile style or responsive theme then it's very hard to browse or view the content on the forum.

Do you think there are any differences between mobile style and responsive theme for a forum?

or responsive is better and need to replaced for mobile styles?

I am asking this because I really don't like mobile style because the forum will lack of functions when viewing on mobile devices.

With the current speed of mobile internet, there really is no need for a stripped down data saving mobile style anymore(My opinion). However, if a community is using the mobile styles successfully and has a strong user base, switching from the mobile style to responsive can send a shockwave to the regular users who are used to using the mobile style. Change is not always good, even for the better when it comes to a well established forum. I'd recommend any new startup forums to have a well designed and functional responsive style since they will be attracting new younger "social media" types who all pretty much surf the web on mobile devices only, and don't understand how a forum should look or work.

Very nice interface but, at least to me, it appears to be a copy of http://www.webmastersun.com/

It is not a copy but can say both sites are as a "Team" , obviously http://www.webmastersun.com is focus on internet marketing niche ( for internet marketers and webmasters) and covering more things like SEO, affiliate marketing, web design, make money online, social network marketing...etc then http://forumweb.hosting is all about web hosting field, it's a place to share and learning everything about web hosting. VPS, dedicated severs, cloud hosting or how to run a web hosting business...

Also we have already got an announcement here http://www.webmastersun.com/threads/...-Webmaster-Sun in months ago, maybe you could not read this.

Both forums are growing strongly on search engines and they are getting good traffic. I think, our targets are running right direction.

I have to agree with you about these points, to be honest, I didn't care about responsive template in years ago but since the amount of users that using mobile devices increased dramatically in recent years then it's a must to have responsive design for forums, thus we convert vB default theme into responsive design and it is working as well and helping our forum more.

I wrote "interface" and not content. In simple words the template. Also in your post most topics that you're asking review are about design:
Forum colors
Layout
The Logo
The content
Loading speed

For this interface I wrote that is a copy and noy for the content. By posting the same interface (even in different site) the only that I can think is that you found a trick to advertise your new site and not get a review for the interface which already reviewed as "Excellent" not only by me but from almost all users who post their opinion there.

I got your points and to be honest, it was my mistake when I didn't read your previous reply carefully so I misunderstand your meaning.

Honestly the layout is not important at this time while I am developing and improving other parts on the forum. A beautiful or "excellent" forum is nothing if it doesn't have any visitors come the forum and joining with discussions

Also, the layout inherited some parts from webmastersun but it's easy to change to a quite different theme, we can make a greater theme than the current one for 2 or 3 days...so no worriers about that.

I am using current theme because I don't see any better layouts than them and it is running as well.....when I have better ideas for layouts, we can change to new theme quickly. Our goals now are "other things", not focus on building a cool theme at this time.

As said above, the styles can be changed any time so this is not a trick to advertise our forum here "again", if you have free time, don't forget to check our web hosting forum http://forumweb.hosting to see changes on it time by time. Once again, I am sure this is normal review thread to get everyone's feedback to improve our forum and I'm looking forward to reading more feedback from all of you here!

Thanks friends on vB community!

Cheers,
Matt

It is inherited and using ideas from Webmaster Sun forum style
webmastersun.com is a sister site
Also, I have just moved my forum to Xenforo 2 a few weeks ago because vB4 didn't support updates on this version any more.
