Review Pixlicity Flat/Bootstrap

Hey! I would like to get my site reviewed. This website used to have a different style before which I requested a review for a couple of years ago. The community went down because of some reasons and now it's back up again.

I mainly would like to have the style reviewed, its not for sale or anything like that so I'm not (I hope) breaking any rules.

Thanks.

the style looks good, clean and simple, easy to read.

By making the menus collapsable and the infoboxes on the bottom in tabs you get a better overview of the site.

I like it. Nice job.

Thanks!

Would love to get some pointers and tips on what to improve and what type of additions would make the style better. Not just from you but from anyone.

You need to fill more posts into forums to make it better

Also where can I find the logo? is it on the navigation?

It is not necessary to have slider on the top header

and you need to add strong colors to your forum to make it stronger and more active

The logo is on the left side of the navigation, we want to keep it simple.
We removed the slider as I agree with you that it is not neccesary.
The colors are supposed to be like they are to give a sophisticated impression.
Also, we're starting to fill the forum with posts as we get more members.

What would you suggest I do to mak it more obvious? The forums are open so you are able to see what type of forums we have, that should give a small hint.

By the way, I want this style you've built. I have been working with Bootstrap and know it's what we need for a truly responsive, mobile friendly but full featured vB style. You've done a great job with this and it is desperately needed especially for vB 3.8.X

Bootstrap + CodeIgniter project I'm doing, here: http://fotochatter.com

Thanks. Well. I can't give you this one, sorry. However I will probably be making styles based of this one but different for free and some for money. You can add me on skype if you want to, you can find it in my profile.

Was going to suggest a welcome box or something and looks like you've added it already

Also recommend hiding the premium tab from visitors/bots, since it'll just gives an error when they click it.

The style looks really good and clean, but the responsiveness is not working for me at least on the topic view. It looks like it's trying to work though. I'm using Chrome on desktop and IE11 on my phone. Both appeared the same way.

You mean the footer? I'm currently working on that, hence why it looks like that.

No, not the footer, the topics themselves. The text of the post is to the right of the postbit where it should be under it. The forum view is squashed together at 320 pixels width. There is too much info trying to be presented for a small screen. The Number of topics/posts should be hidden on small screens or relocated.
