The Stomping Grounds

We have been open for almost 4 years but had to close for about a year. So we just re-opened a few months ago with a new name and design. Pruned an incredible amount of posts and we're left with what you see now. It has been tough getting the members back. Some have come back quick some not so much...So let's have at it haha

Review on:

Forum Style
Forum Layout and Set Up
Anything else you would like to add.


Please be truthful and blunt. I would like to know what I can do to make it better.

Thanks! :)

Make sure to update your license with the URL where the license currently is in use. You might get into troubles with our Piracy department if you do not keep your URL current.

i respect what your trying to do... but unfortunately for you there is already a forum called offtopic.com and it has a ton of members..... but your site looks a lot better then that site

You may want to get rid of the footer links: Cheap Credit Cards|Loans|Loans|Servidores|Guitar Lessons

They'll kill any SEO thats been done.

The grey text that says "Teh interwebs" is small, and barely visible due to a lack of contrast.

The register link, doesn't appear as the others do, it shows up to tall.


The image your using for the welcome.png is pretty bad looking. You may want to try to get a higher resoultion one

KevinL 31 Dec 2008 01:08

Hey thanks for taking a look :)

Yeah I know there's a site offtopic.com haha and about 150k other ones just like it. haha

But I'm hoping I can figure something out...hey the big don't always stay on top for ever...look at all the banks in the US ;)

Those are all rel=no fallow so that shouldn't be bad...right?

No follow doesn't prevent the spiders from leaving your page and going to theirs, CO-OP link networks like that are greatly frowned upon, and you won't recieve any benefit from using it (unless a fincial one maybe?). Its a big risk, with little to no reward, just do a little googling about "co-op link networks for seo" and read others results/gains.

KevinL 31 Dec 2008 05:14

Thank you very much for all that!

I will be working on that stuff. Any other suggestions?

jlew24asu 31 Dec 2008 14:10

KevinL 31 Dec 2008 18:12

Thank you very much :)

is the mascot custom? if so, who's the designer?

KevinL 03 Jan 2009 16:24

Nah man. Not custom per se. I bought the vector from a design site. Has some really great work. If I find the link I'll shoot it to you if you want.

Winterworks 03 Jan 2009 16:32

Could I also please have the link? I love the image! :)

If you could either post it here, or PM it to me, that'd be great!

nando99 07 Jan 2009 18:13

Yeah... I'd definitely like the link... cool site 2...
