I'm looking for input regarding the look and feel of the site. All suggestions are welcome as well as constructive criticism :)

If anyone can suggest some good mods that might benefit the community, I'd appreciate that input as well:

DeveloperBarn - ASP/ASP.Net Help, PHP Help, SQL Help, Windows Help, Linux Help, and more

Thanks

Too be honest first glance it looks like a forum for farmers. And the brown and blue default scheme doesn't really match.

lol I guess it does...perhaps I should add something to the logo to make it look more technical :)

Any suggestion on the horizontal bar? It happens because of the ad up there, but only with smaller resolutions or when the window is resized.

As far as the colors, my current members like them because they are very easy on the eyes. Because it is a technical forum for professionals, they seem to care less about the "flashiness" of a site and more about the content. I've tried a few skins in other forums, but they seemed to really slow down page load and made the page look too busy.

Thanks for your comments :)

The site idea is nice, but the forum color and style is plain and oblique.

good forum, just needs a few changes then it will be good.

Okay everyone, I updated the style. Please tell me this is better ;) So far, the members I talked to like it a lot...looking for some good feedback :)

Thanks again for your input!

It's very bright. It actually hurt my eyes a bit when I opened the tab.

Normally I say "too many forums" when new sites pop up with that many subforums, but it looks like you put a lot of thought into the forum choices, and that looks good. https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/

Other than that though, the skin needs some love. It's just a bright purple default vB.

I will look into making it less bright. I initially thought it was a little bright, but more and more members said they liked it.

As far as the skin goes, I will probably not be using a skin any time soon. Every skin I've ever used affected page load time and made it appear that too much was going on. For my target audience, a loud, flashy page isn't necessary. Sometimes keeping simple works better :)

And you're right, I did spend a great deal of time choosing the forums/sub-forums :) I like to be as organized as possible, and the individual sub-forums help achieve that goal, particularly because of the wide range of content I'm supporting.

Again, thanks for the constructive criticism. It's much appreciated :up:
