    Hello Xenforo! This thread was posted earlier by vinc but I would like to re-post it as I've recently bought the forum over from vinc. I just gotten my hands on it not too long ago and I'm looking to add features, make changes and of course, to get the forum growing since signups have been coming pretty slow.

    As you can see, the forum style is now outdated as it was meant for 1.0.4. I'm thinking of upgrading Xenforo into 1.1 and then either get a custom style for it or purchase something that would fit the forum well.

    I am open to just any suggestions, opinions or critiques. Here's the link to it - http://gamerbb.net

    Welcome to xenForo!

    Normally, my suggestion would be to wait for xenFocus to update their skin [for 1.1].. but it seems to be going slower. :/

    I would upgrade to 1.1 ASAP. But a visually pleasing skin is needed along with the upgrade.

    I would also condense the ads to just one. Having too many ads is only going to drive visitors away.

    Thanks for your suggestion. Will keep that in mind and probably remove a few ads. Anymore suggestion guys?

    Well, I guess your question is answered. Anyway, I got a request for adding a chatbox. Can anyone give an opinion in regards to a chatbox? Should I implement one? and if yes, where should it be positioned in?

    I already downloaded that earlier. It's more of whether I should implement the chatbox and where should it be if it's a yes.

    I don't think chatbox would spur discussions on GamerBB, in fact, it would distract from it. But if it makes your users happy... so be it.

    I don't use chatbox on my sites because I feel that it will decrease member posting.

    A few of my members suggested the chatbox and they'd like to have it at the bottom right corner just like facebook. I know it will distract members from posting but if it keeps my members happy, I think it should be done. Any other opinions on this?

    Looks good but its a bit slow with the animated Banner...
    The Dark Theme is good for the Eyes ;)
    Btw how are you handling the Trade between your GamerBB points and the Cards etc.? Are you buying all the Stuff yourself or is it sponsored?

    http://www.arrowchat.com/ or http://www.cometchat.com/ Choose your software. I myself have used both in the past and think that arrowchat is going to surpass cometchat eventually :).

    I'll be purchasing the stuff myself. Eventually, at some point, I'll be looking for sponsors.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've personally used only taigachat and I find it pretty cool. I'll check both the chat software pretty soon and see if they fit my needs.

    :D Thanks! You have a nice gaming forum yourself!
