    Hi all!

    This is a forum I recently purchased and gave my own personal touch to, and I'd like your opinion on it.

    What the forum is about, as stated in our 'About Us',

    WWE Forums is the number one site worldwide for wrestling discussion, news, and rumors. Join our community of over 5000 members to discuss WWE, TNA, Ring of Honor, NJPW, and other indie promotions, with weekly live discussion threads open every Monday night during Raw and for every pay-per-view event. Become part of a great community of members that have one thing in common, a love for wrestling!

    I plan to evolve the site into a wrestling news resource in future.
    We're quickly approaching 1 million posts also, very excited for that!
    All of your suggestions are welcome. :)

    Thanks for reading.

    The site looks nice!

    I quite like the tags.

    Site looks weird without node icons, tho.

    Oh, and one more thing: Is it really necessary to have a mobile skin when xenForo has it's own responsive design? In fact, the skin you have for the main site is supposedly responsive.

    I thought that first about node icons, but you get used to it.
    I use the XFstop mobile theme because it's super optimized for speed, even more so now that I stripped it down. I find that responsive styles are pretty slow to load.

    We have a slightly new look, and some great new features such as articles and galleries. WWEF is doing great, and XenForo is awesome to work with.

    Looks good.. I particularly like the Bets section (SportsBook) as it seems to be quite popular on your community. :)

    I noticed that! I also noticed that it's a derivative of Apex! :D

    1.4 upgrade went well, and 900,000 posts is just around the corner. Finally have the forum exactly how I want it to look too.

    Looks great!

    Can I ask you two questions, if you don't mind?

    - how did you give each category node a different color?
    - how did you add custom icons for each forum?

    Thank you. :)

    Thanks a lot.
    Node customizations is part of the XenBase framework found in pixelExit's themes.
    Custom node icons is an addon -> https://xenforo.com/community/resources/*******-custom-node-style.3445/

    WWEF got an updated look for 2015 thanks to UI.X, I can't stay away from it for long. :D
    Also got a bunch of new features including the Master Badge addon by @Milano - It looks so nice,

    WWEF is now using the latest version of UI.X Dark, it's so awesome.
    Got some new features too including taigachat, extend post ratings, and AD Credit & Shop. Our custom module built on top of sonnb's live thread is working nice again too.
    I've also simplified the node icons for a much cleaner style, and added a welcome block. :)
    It's the road to WrestleMania now, so it's gonna be a really fun time! Check it out -> https://wweforums.net

    Some images showing the changes made:

    This is the entire screen, nice and responsive too[​IMG]



    Any feedback? (y)

    What parameters did you use to reach the conclusion that your site is number 1?

    seen this? http://www.wrestlingforum.com/forumindex.php

    Because XenForo >
    WF has quite a bad reputation in the wrestling community. I'd say wwef offers a lot more than WF does too.
