    Simple and clean, so works well for that niche. I would look at changing the now dated default node icons (the speech bubbles) to something specific to your niche, maybe that city skyline from your logo or a greyed out Canary Wharf (or some other financial symbol).

    There also doesn't seem to be a new or recent posts option easily to hand in the forum, this is critical.

    I know this sounds trivial, but first impressions and all that: Your username is too long for the restricted space you have next to posts (above the avatar) and as you'll see this a lot in posts, I would change your username and remove the .co.uk so it fits, or add a space somewhere so it splits nicely, or change the font or space there:

    Other than minor stuff like this, it's a good job and you've done well.

    So much agree on first impressions, changed it to CWian. Also agree on the other stuff, thanks (however our current dev budget is very tight).

    I'd very much welcome any further reviews.

    Very nice front page, can you tell what you are using for that and if xenporta can you share how to implement the same look.

    Looks good @Stockwalker.

    Only thing I'd suggest is your portal font is Trebuchet MS whilst your forum message font is Georgia.

    You may want to make them both the same for consistency.

    Actually it's CTA Portal with some smaller modifications.

    @Optic thanks, noted; edit: oh actually it looks quite bad that way

    And a shoutout also goes to @Sadik B for his very solid programming/designing skills.
