    Hello Fellow Forum Posters and Gamers

    My Name is Michael, I have recently made a gaming website. Over the past few weeks, I was just getting situated, and getting a feel for the software. I felt that my old post showed outdated info, and seemed more like questions then reviews. I have added a few new things as well as a new logo, which was done wonderfully by DE Vexel here on XenForo. Now that I feel the website is just about done, I feel its necessary to get a new review. So here we go!

    I would love to hear what you guys think, good or bad. I want to hear what you, the user thinks of the website. Im not the one visiting it, and of course, I will always like it since I made it. So second opinions are great! I know advertising is what I need to do as well, so I'm looking at forum promotion sites and social media soon.

    Thanks Everyone!


    Just click on the banner to go to the website!

    Thanks! Really means a lot! Anything you would recommend to do, or any good ways to advertise?

    Also, I would like to say thanks to everyone who stopped by to take a look at the site, and hopefully, I might even see you on it!

    Anyone else got a review?

    Looks good but there's not a lot of variety amongst the boards for discussion. Are you adding more forums soon?

    I may join up for the hell of it. I'm looking for a forum to join anyways :)

    I actually am planning on adding more forums, but others recommended to go with less at first.

    Less is good. Although you need more variety than you currently have ;)

    I joined up. Nice theme and all.

    Nice work, I really like the logo and the background image, it is not intrusive and fills up the space well.

    I also love the registration box on the top of the forums, did you do that as a custom design?

    Yeah, the registration is custom, I collaborated with a designer to help me make it. Its really simple code, but looks nice :)

    It also doubles as a welcome back to users who sign up!

    Nothing much. You got everything, pretty much.

    One question tho, what's the CSS for username glow? I noticed that on the site and I thought about getting that on my site.

    Try this,
    Code:
    text-shadow: 0 0 0 transparent, 0px 0px 5px #hex;

    What end result does that make? A shadow?

    Where do I put the color of the "shadow" (glow?), in the hex area?

    That's a very nice looking site.

    End result is the glow effect. It's basically just a text shadow. You put whatever color you want the color of the shadow to be in the hex area, of course it has to be a hex code.

    Site looks really good btw. Just needs some more content, & active users. That's the hardest part of general gaming forums. I'm in the same boat with one of my sites. Just gotta keep consistent with it, and don't give up.

    I'm sorry, I wasn't on. @JABRONI is right. Just paste the code in the users box and your set :)

    Thanks @Code Monkey, I'm glad you liked it :)

    Also thank you all for the positive feedback. I'm trying really hard to get the name out there, but it is hard to get people to join. I'm not giving up though, so no worries.

    Anyone else got feedback, or anything that needs to be added?

    Glad he got you the answer you needed :)
    Thanks @JABRONI for posting that :)
    Also, thanks to each and every person that posted and viewed. It means a Lot, when you guys give me positive feedback, and more when you give me suggestions. This is why I choose XenForo, not just the software, but the community.

    Need an opinion on the Resource Tab. Should I keep it? Does it look good? Let me know, I think it might work out, but need second opinions.

    As a gaming forum creator, and a visitor to a lot, I don't think gaming forums need a resource page. If anything, I would start saving up to get the XenRio addon. It's pretty much a must with how much Twitch TV has blown up in the past 2 years.
