    Hello everyone.
    This is my largest forum and busiest site, it has been open since April 26th 2010.
    My goal is to make this the largest forum of my niche.

    Well since I use to be active on many different GFX sites a few years ago, the main advice I can give you is to get a custom style made and don't rely on premade styles.

    I got this far without using a custom theme (excluding 2 months).

    Well it makes your site look like it wasn't made by designers/artists/gfx people, makes it look like it was just made by someone that wants to have a popular site to gloat. Also out of every GFX forum I've been a member of, every single one with a custom skin/theme/style does better in the long run compared to sites without.

    Good to see a well established "graphic forum" doing so well with regards to activity. Style is clean, there seems to be lots of content excellent work indeed. (y)

    Yeah! Not often you see a GFX forum doing much these days. I can see quite a few members online there now, so it's obviously working out for you. I like the style, colours are a good mix and it looks clean. Not much more to say really, just interesting for me to see a GFX forum actually being used, you've done well in that respect.

    Thanks to both of you.
    I'm customizing the theme myself this weekend with some background art and such, will look much better.
