Review my gaming forum!

Hi guys so my forum is http://mistviper.com and I would love if you guys critiqued it! We just did some updates today to improve it! I want to constantly improve it though as I feel that is the key to keeping the member base happy, as well as having an active community. Let me know what you think!

Ahh yes, the Avenger style. One of the better executed dark styles.

Header looking good, avoiding the garishness and luridness we usually see with gaming sites. Tasteful.

You have it nice and svelte with only 285kb of page load on the browser. Good to see. This will be friendly with your members.

You have a missing, mis-named or mis-spelled image call, here: (404 not found error)

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Postbit looks nice and clean, the extras aren't grating at all.

I would install BoP5's Xenforo Breadcrumb, and definitely would get Ozzy's advanced footer, to really pimp this out some without adding any significant extra load. I have those on my site here for your viewing enjoyment.

Also you're not leveraging browser cache of static assets. This is a easy fix in .htaccess.

Overall, nicely done. Refreshing to see a vBulletin that isn't loaded down with 2 megabytes of heavy imaging. People can find and go to, what they're looking for. Uncluttered.

Nice job.

Thanks for the great review Max! I just have a couple questions. How did you find that 404 error, where did you click? Also I couldn't find BoP5's xenforo Breadcrumb plugin, could you link it? Thanks again!

I tested your site using WebPageTest and here is the results page. Click on the waterfall view to see the 404 error highlighted in red.

BoP5's XF breadcrumb hasn't been released here at vBorg, you have to register on his site and download it from there.
