Improvements

Alright, I'll go first :D . Here is a list of improvements I personally think would lift the community a bit... these are all suggestions so go easy on me if you don't like it:

.DESIGN
- Change the skin.
- Change the width of the forum tables. The bigger the forum tables are the better. Assuming that people will post big sized images having big forum tables minimizes the risk of getting disordered tables.
- Make a new banner that looks a bit more professional.
- If you want to stick to the current style or change it make it so all fonts are readable, colorwise.
- Avoid images that don't fit with the way the forums should look. Example: the forum title bars are supposed to be rounded at the edges but there are some little untouched parts that hasn't been removed after rounding the edges (yes I'm a bit too finicky :P )
- Generally make the forums look more CW:ish by maybe using some CW icons and such for forum markers for example.

If you'd like any customizations of the things listed above give me a shout, I'd be glad to help.

.FUNCTIONS
- Fast Reply is not enabled in all forums so enabling that would be a good idea.

.OTHER
- Change the forums a bit! The forums and their orders are almost the same as the old CWC, be more creative and make some changes for the sake of keeping things interesting.
- Do some better forum categorizing. For example Arts and Entertainment, General Discussion and Introductions are all under the same category, these aren't that related to be put under the same category. Maybe create a category and call it "Media" then place all forums that have to do with images and movies under it. Then maybe create another category and place all member related forums in that.
- Create some spam free zones. Have some forums for serious discussions without people spamming it and going off topic after one page of posts.

These are a few of my suggestions, like it or hate it they're just suggestions :P (more will be added as they hit my mind).

Sure, not a problem. But it'd would be good to know if the forums style will be changed or not so I can make the banner go with the color of the forums, would look much better that way :P .

Yes there are a few parts that need improvement if you go with the current style.

Maybe we should do a poll on the skin?

1. Like it
2. Change it
3. Improve it

I really think we should get a new skin and this time it's not about the design it's more about how compatible it is with different browsers... this is how it shows in IE (I use FF normally and it's much better there):

Thanks for the suggestions, but the problem is that this is a community board and that means there are a lot of people with different opinions and interests. If I change something to the way you like it the chance's that someone else would dislike it are very high looking at 170 registered members already.

As you clearly can see there were a few people whom didn't like those skins you suggested so that concludes that no matter what I change or to what I change it to someone is going to like/dislike it. But this of course doesn't mean I'm not going to change anything at all, I've already taken those things people pointed out into consideration and am going to change then very soon. A few such as the forum markers and the legend colors have already been changed after hearing people's opinion.

Right now I'm focusing on making the white areas a little bit darker so it's more pleasant to the majority.

--------------------------

And the reply to Videogamers0, pretty much the same theory as the skin, the forum you may see as unnecessary may be useful in someone else's eyes.
