    Looks quite nice. I would say the "latest" boxes at the top are too big for my liking, plus their not all the same size. Forums looks really good, nice skin

    I think the layout of the messages in the forum makes it hard to keep track of what you are reading. IMO the user names and avatars should be beside the messages and not above them.

    Like PK says we cannot say much on design, there's not much design there...

    Other links seem not to work from the left pane (although I did not register, maybe that's it, btu then surely you want it linking me to the reg. page?) Arcade never seemed to come up - Polls did but took forever.

    OT I see from the forum you ordered Logitech MX700 - did you know the MX1000 is just out? there's a thread here - sorry if this is a bad time to tell you, just wondering if you knew....

    BTW I typed all this in while waiting for response on a click for the polls (New Website link) so there are definitely places where speed is not enough to keep the audience, for whatever reason that may be

    why does activation e-mail take so long? .....still waiting.....Security code is the same again, it needs to be changed to various codes.

    Looks good. A lot of text to take in ... in the front ... but thats not really a complaint.

    I'd make the fonts (types and sizes) more consistant and cut the menus down abit.

    Ok heres my feedback. Now don't take it the wrong way because it benefits us both.

    Each of these stories originally came from OSNN - but you haven't given us any kind of credit. How do I know this from such old articles? In the source you have actually copied OSNN images that no longer exist so are throwing up stats in my error log. It is very important to quote your source or at least rip them off properly.

    So if you could fix up those posts or I will make some kinda of .htaccess just to let your users know where they can really go ;)

    It's pretty much all ripped off

    Notice how the fonts change from story to story depending on which site it was ripped from? "Borrowing" news stories from sites without giving credit is bad, but not at least taking the time to retype them is even worse. If you at least retype them, you can reword it a bit making it kinda like your own story.
