Ok I've worked my tail off on this one for 2 weeks now. I still have one or two things to do but, It's open for business!

It may not look it but a bunch of elbow grease has gone into this fella. My favorite thing is the collapsible sidebar. I'm going to fix it so guests can use it soon, right now it uses custom profile field selections.

Hope you like it!

(I thought I submitted this but going back to history it brings up the create thread? Did I not? If so - did it get removed? If so.. can someone let me know?)

I don't like this
"SubChoices
"
thing lol

Other than that the color scheme is nice and easy to read. It's very clean. Have you considered node icons? Might actually be nice to have some specific node icons for all those guns.

Yeah I was experimenting with that, I can't disagree, removed. :)

Thank you for the feedback! I have considered icons but I either need to make some or find something for free. I made those..

Cuz, really its only like 3 forums that are really gun forums, the rest are related but not, so those icons would be pretty hard to invent..

Oh nice. Do you think the same icon all the way down or attempting to be unique for each would be good?

I'm not 100%, I do like the dots, but my son is pushing for icons.

Hmm maybe something generic like an actual bullet or target?

Different icons add unique details and attention but having at least one for the entire forum *for unread and read* would add a nice touch at the very least.

(click link for icon)
Rifles and Shotguns
Handguns
Revolvers

One of these could be the default icons (these are targets & bullets)
