    I'm currently in the process of re-branding the site because of an issue with the domain name from the guy I purchased the site from, but thought I'd toss it up here anyways to see if I could get any feedback. :)

    I present to you Admin Talk, a forum for website administrators and system admins.

    We're currently running the beta or RC's of xenforo so I'm just using a modified version of the default style. We have a nice paid style that may be put back in place once GOLD is out. (y)

    Admin-talk - like the design - dark blue psychologically is trustworthy.
    Cute favicon.
    I'm a sucker for Jake's category designs!

    The pale blue text on the guest welcome message I had to highlight in order to read.

    Thanks for the comments
    Thank you, I'll work on that :)
    I dig the color options in the admin panel, I'm not a designer by far but was able to edit a few colors pretty quickly.

    Blimey, I didn't even know i registered at your forum and then realized You must have imported the adminbb.org database into AT.

    I'd personally hunt around for a style the current looks to default with a few minor touches to it which I find to be a little too blue in some areas. Either that or you could go with something a little more exclusive in the way of a custom style? I'd think this would be a little more inviting to guests that thought about registering but turned away.

    Nice large forum which is always good. I just don't think the style is very inviting.

    I would recolor this section to make the text stand out more.

    Actually this was the AdminBB site but we recently had to moved to the .com
    We do have a nice paid style but it hasn't been updated to 1.1.x yet.
    Thanks for the feedback both of you!
    I'll see if I can work on the "welcome block" tonight.

    I has been a member of Admin Talk since launch. And it's great to see Mr. Sheley take the ship to places where it's never been before! :D

    What's going on with this site? The new owners seem to be happy to let it run into the ground?

    No idea what's going on there. I haven't been to it since I sold it. I think it was sold one or two more times since.
