Ok, nice site. But when i first when onto your site it took forever to load the main bit. If i was you i would remove the main page and just keep it as a forum. Your forum is nice but not the best of skins, You have quite to many forums for 12 members maybe you should consider deleteing a few. But i'm no hypocrip i did the exactly same thing. Also you should really explain what your forum is about on the Welcome Bit like i have on my forum so people will get to know the site and then will consider joining. But over all good site.

Actually, your promotional text was removed - twice. You posted your site here and then you posted to get others to join.

I would also suggest killing that front page
for those who don't want to wait 30 secs for the front page to load, here is the forum link
http://www.rahstyles.com/forum/
it's also hard to see your forum with that big black box hoovering around

It is really very simple: You are allowed to request your site to be reviewed. If you are however asking people to register on your board, then it is promoting.

Okay, to start, as people have said, cut out the splash page. It takes forever to load, and for those without Javascript or using NoScript, they can't even enter through the front page.

Secondly, while the style is nice, I don't understand why this text is floating to the right somewhere:

USFTECH template
Might want to fix that. Another thing I can't understand is what the heck this board is even about. Styles would suggest forum styles and stuff, but there's sections about gaming, fighting, world affairs, entertainment and rap battles, which would suggest an off topic type forum. If that is the case, you might want to get an easier to understand forum name.

There is then also a huge amount of forums, most of them empty. Your site is too young to have hundreds of forums everywhere, so you should either merge them together like:

Front Door

City Hall
Introductions

Off Topic Lingo

Off Topic/Rahstyles.com Chat
Lifestyle and Word affairs
Automobile Vault

Rap Battles Online

[Keep same, I can't think of how to merge it)

Fighters Vault

[Keep same, distinction is fair, remove sub forums]


Entertainment

Playstation (sub forum PSP, PS2, PS3)
Movies and TV
Music

Tech Project Management

[Keep same]

Remove stats to another page, it's too much to have on the front page, and the forum is too new to make the stats of any great interest beyond the who's online box and forum general stats.

Keep the rest, the rest of the style looks good as it is, and is fitting for an off topic/general type forum.

Might want some custom smilies.

You should remove the duplicate Todays Posts link, it's only needed once.

The rest seems fine. You've installed a good set of add ons for your forum, which should be interesting and useful to your members, the forum style is nice and fits the topic and your forum looks like it could be a great place once a few minor changes are made!

I agree! That black box drove me nuts and made me leave.

The problem is that it's not really the mods that are the problem, just a small error in the style and the splash page accessed before the forums. Most of your forum is fine (if there was less forums or they were filled with posts), and the problem of the layout being a bit off might either be a problem with installing the forum style or a compatibility issue with a version of vBulletin...

the front page is nice, loads fine for me as i have a fast connection, but im confused on what the hole site is about. when i seen the name "Rahstyles" i thought vbulletin styles or something, then i seen the front page and thought it was girls style clothing then entered the forums and thought it looked just like a normal everyday chat forum...
your front page has no Title or
<meta name="keywords"
<meta name="description"
as the same as your forum, you mite want to fix those up to get anywhere on google.
