    We are a roleplaying/community. This is my first xenForo project and we are coming along quite nicely. I wanted to get any feedback possible.

    Didn't you post this yesterday ? or am i going nuts :p

    anyway
    As I always say the tweet button on the home page newsfeed looks out of place even tho that's how it comes
    On the forums page the "Random Images" cat bar is smaller than your forum bars looks out of place (maybe make it same size as the others)

    Has any one else had any chances to look around? We continue to grow and would love more feedback. We are working on our design/skin and are currently modding the flexile one xD!

    A better Forum Home for your Role Plays.

    Note: maybe even some cool audio ! :)

    This rending of your "The Stage" is meant to be embedded in your forum home.

    The slideshow would be like the one Jaxel uses on http://8wayrun.com/ homepage.

    We have gotten much bigger and activity has greatly picked up. We have some custom styles in the works and we have changed layout alot. If you have any suggestions please do let me know :).

    Site looks great.

    Maybe spruce up the Help Tab ? or move the contents to the Forum Tab ? or rename the tab Misc ?
    The Help tab on your site should be dealing with Helping current and future members with your site and what your site is about. Instead, it's just minutia about xenforo. As a guest ... when I click on your Help tab and look at it ... I think "Not really helpful".

    The Dropdowns here are great

    how did you do them ?
    That being said, the background is too dark, can you lighten them up ?
    Maybe even have the background white ? (with a blue outline) ?

    I think your quote background is too dark too.

    I like the lighter style. Being completely unfamiliar with gaming and gaming sites my only suggestion would be more information as to what I am voting for. :) The images for the forums are neat.

    Gaming site? We are a writing/roleplay community :(

    No offense intended. Not being one into roleplaying (doesn't sound quite right with a dirty mind) or gaming my ignorance has lumped the two together. :)

    New style is up! We used Aurora as a base and edited it to suit our needs. New forum organization and banners for games are up. Thanks to everyone for your suggestions and please let me know of what you think of the new style.

    More suggestions and ideas are always welcomed!

    I mean the Links in the node tree.

    Those are subforums of those forums. We used Jaxel's subforum code.

    Is something wrong with it?
