Default Preparing for Launch of
Hello, is the new project and is open to the public, but I have not officially launched the forum/site. News articles, mass mails, etc.. I am slowly building the content, finding some niche users, staff, etc..

It is a graphic forum that is using the vb 3.00 RC2 version. I have a backend forums for admins ready to roll, and some stock forums up with posting guidlines. I think most of my basis are covered but just want to make sure.

I think there might be a few buttons to customize, but any hacks, or options you guys would suggest?

I think that generally if it's a graphics related forum, the forum should be fairly customised (not necessarily in structure, but in design) so it should have more graphics, not too many but I think it should look more graphical than the average vB3 stock installation. Some customization wouldn't hurt either, something that sets a forum apart from others is a unique style of structure, such as a unique postbit arrangement, something different.

Another little suggestion is to tabulate the text/images at the bottom of the forum. Currently it's black text on dark grey background and is hard to read.

That's just my suggestions .
