Additional Message Board

I wanted to see if I could make a message board, since I'm studying PHP. I'd like as many of you to sign up as possible. It's still getting all the bugs worked out, but I have 5 mods and 3 admins working on it, so it should be completely operational by Monday. Come sign up, look around... post new threads..etc...

(soon to be skinsfans.net)

Re: Additional Message Board

This has to be breaking some kind of forum rule. Creating competition?

Re: Additional Message Board

You have to change the font from black to white. I have to highlight the whole page (ctrl-A) to read anything.

Good luck with it. Just not sure that advertising it here will fly.

My first piece of advice, if you are serious about building a long running forum, don't cheap out on the server. Go big and grow into it. I know you're just getting started, just some advice for the future.

Re: Additional Message Board

Thanks... I really did just learn PHP, but I've been a graphic designer for 10 years. I plan on getting skinsfans.net tonight, so then I'll have nearly unlimited bandwidth. Thanks for the advise.

Re: Additional Message Board

I've been a graphic designer myself for a number of years and you're going to want to work on the color selection. Just like they mentioned above, it's really hard on the eyes. It's about content first, then you'll want to worry about making it look nice.

Re: Additional Message Board

First impression: the black font on the red background is too hard to see. Either lighten up the background or go with a white font. I would suggest going with a lighter background with a black font. It's always the easiest to read that way.
