This site is five days old so bash away. Constructive critiscm is nice too. Just a newsboard and some links however it has a nice ad free forum.

CRZ give it a gander if you would. Remember that favor you owe me? This will set us straight.

A editorial in our columns forum would be extra cool.

Thanks buddy.

To the rest let me know what sucks, needs work or is halfway decent. I also need to know how close I am to getting sued by WWFE not that I give two sh its.

Thanks later.

It's a cool site. Is there any way to speed up the transition of your background when it goes from black to white?

Yeah, it's an old HTML trick. I believe I can speed it up a tad. Thanks it's new and we are still tinkering. The Flash is being improved as we speak.

Thanks for the tip. Check out the forum when you get a chance. We need to fill up some more. Also I'm thinking of allowing the sig images but have heard they slow down the page load. I'm eager to keep it as quick a loading forum as possible. Any info if this is true? If not I'll let it fly as they are cool to look at.

Later.

Just make sure you keep current on the security updates for your forum. Ikonboard and phpBB are both heavily targetted by little script kiddie l33tx0rs.

Thanks Guru. Ikon is an awesome board in my opine but I hadn't heard that their security was suspect. I'll get over to their site and check for any updates.

Thanks bro.

It's not suspect - it's just a target.

I had a friend get hacked on phpBB 1.2 a few days ago. Apparently, going from what he told me, only 2.0 and up (the beta versions) are fixed. It looks like they found his board by searching for the phpBB 1.2 copyright notice.

So -- just a warning. The php is available for anyone. So is the db structure. If there are flaws, its easy for someone to set up a test board to look for ways to exploit them. You just need to be vigilant.

I would look for a mailing list and subscribe to it. The worst thing to have happen is to not find out about major problems. I know I miss security patches all the time until something bad happens to someone I know or a site I visit.

This is why its a good thing that infinitum also has the root password to this machine :)

You asked for feedback so I'll be honest.... :-)

First off...the flash at the intro page...is there really any point of it? Like some pages have *cool* flash intros but yours just seems like you wanted to put it there for the sake of having flash.

Second....the design of your page. Sorry dude but I just don't like it. It's too....I can't think of the correct terminology...but when I go to the site, my eyes are all over the place. There's no focus point. Like you go to most sites, it's pretty easy to navigate and you can do it in seconds...but with your site I have to spend a few minutes just trying to figure out where to go, and what's on the site. Why not just move all the links from the right and put them on the left, so you've got one navigational column...

Also the images for each section just seem out of place with such a plain background. Text on the navigation links could do with a switch to verdana or arial too. Basically the design looks very amateurish, and sadly appearance is what todays web surfer goes on these days, and yours just isn't a very good one(IMO of course).

Just my honest opinion man...hope it helps :-)

Thanks man. That's my hook. Great name. Cheap site.

Not looking to wow people with smoke and mirrors really. We are dressing it up some though and I already stated that's just a simple flash that we are working on.

This like all other indy sites is non-profit as none are money makers in this market. Thus being I'm having fun tinkering, writing and giving other guys a chance to write for a site. Mainly looking to get young writers experience and exposure. It's content over look anyway (just look at this site).
As for the links I see that format all over and at pro sites as well. However I see your point.

Just in it for the fun though and doing my best. Basically the forum is the focal point. I just put up the newsboard as an afterthought.

Thanks for your opinion Scotsman and feel free to post at the forum. You seem like you're alright and I'll strongly consider you points.

Later.
