    This is a site that's gone through a lot of changes the last 18 months and is now running on xenforo.
    We've had great feedback from the members about the switch to xenForo and some of the add-ons we've already integrated.
    The forum is a General Forum, pretty much any topic is allowed as long as you follow the rules which basically means to be nice to one another. :love:

    I'm open to any feedback you guys have, we'll be moving to 1.1.0 once GOLD is out.

    General Forums - neat design. Really lively look.
    Is that Jaxel's portal you're using?

    Which do you prefer, your General Forum or your Admin Niche ones out of pure curiosity? Also, which do you find perform best for you, the Admin Niche ones or your General Discussion one.

    Yup, not the beta version though
    I'll update it when we go to 1.1.0 GOLD :)
    It's a style called Social that I found here, it fit it well with our community
    The Admin site is very new to me and I'm in the process of re-branding it so it's not a fair comparison at this point.
    I like both TBH, they are different communities that's for sure.

    Good to see that General Forums made its way to xenforo critique forum!

    I also have been a member of this forum, since the merge from WiredGamer, into AlienSoup.

    I love the 'blog' tab! How did you do that?
    One ad per page, not intrusive, nice.
    Overall nice design, clean, great membership stats! :)

    It's the Blog add-on: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/ln-blog.12701/ but it does not support the current 1.1 releases..

    True, I wasn't thinking then. God knows why I said that seeing as this thread is about his General Forums, not his Admin Talk one. :confused:

    Using Chrome v15....
    If I'm on the Home or Forums page, hover over the Blogs tab drop down, the Blogs nor QuickLinks are clickable.

    thanks for reporting this, I'll take a look as soon as possible..

    ...General-Forums hasn't been upgraded to 1.1.0 (beta) yet, most likely waiting for gold

    good to know the blogs will work (y)

    Holy crap I have an account over there. I don't remember signing up.

    I'm in there right now, looks great.

    You realise you have debug mode enabled?


    That's not recommended due to the increased server resources required.

    The same goes for your other site.

    yup, I had them both enabled while I was working on some custom stuff.
    I'll disable it, didn't think it was that bad though since both forums are pretty small still.
