I'm not real familiar with vb3, but the site seems pretty standard. You just looking to advertise your site or actually get feedback?

It is just stock vB, too many forums, and no member base. None of those reasons would make me register.

A hack will not help your board. You must first make your board unique graphically and in terms of content.

No, you need to provide content for your users. Something to read that they cannot find elsewhere.

No amount of graphic bloat or hacks will result in visitors...

Anyway, your main page uses tables for layout... *ick*

You still need to set the standard's of the forums by it's own style...

A style makes or breaks a forum.

He is saying that your home pages uses tables for layout when tables should only be used for tabular data. It can be hard to transition from a table layout to a div/CSS layout but it is worth it.

Anyway, I repeated him in the point that content is everything. You'll note that many of the best boards are just standard vB2 with modified colors and headers. Tricked out graphics or useless extra features do nothing in regard to adding to a community's net value. It can make your site distinct, but who cares if there is nothing worth reading?
