Site looks great!! Loads lightening fast!
Thanks for the look and the kudos! Site was really ill as far as loading goes, when I bought it. I gave it some optimization love (as far as you can, with a windows server - ACK!) I've done some minor graphics changes and some addon/plugin love. Chiefly anti-spam measures since for over two years registration was disabled due to spam flooding. It's been a little bit of work but very happy with the results so far. Still considering whether to migrate it to my other, Linux hosting.
Are you running any sort of pool for the members? Just a thought!
Not at this time, getting to know the membership really right now.

LOL I was just getting ready to argue with you until I realized this was a joke.

Max, can I ask what optimizations you did? The site is so freaking fast for vB4!!

Anyway, looks great, nice job with everything!

See our vB optimization workshop at OzzModz. See the sticky threads and read up on the actual case studies, in the threads in that forum.

Glad you liked the site and thanks for the look!

PS - I could do even better with it speed wise, were it on a Linux machine instead of the windows one it's on.

very nice design, you might want to consider adding some mouse-over effects at the top of your forum(on the header).. maybe like make a custom menu on top of the logo, and when someone hovers over it, the text would change colors.. that would be something else!!!

Overall: 8.5/10 keep at it

Thanks but, not necessary especially since most of the membership uses mobile devices.

It's got the native vB hover and onclick stuff, I just don't have it set to switch colors. I've never been one for the esoteric stuff anyway. K.I.S.S.

How well did it load for you on this July visit, before everyone else was chiming in on how fast it was for them??

I just spent a LOT of time doing my first v4 theme for this.... Kudos to Ozzy for lots of help and advice.

Take a look.

This was ported from one of my 3.8.7 boards... Originally done for phpBB way back when, then ported to vB2, and so on. I really dig it.

Looks much better than when you first started. Good job sticking with it and not giving up.
