Initial impression: far too white/bright. Some color would go a long way.
We actually had a dark navbar until yesterday. A few people said the same thing as you so I have reverted it back.

My main issue was the background and all the white on white. It hurts my eyes, I run black themes on every website now via custom CSS but most users aren't going to take the time to do that. The design itself is a little busy on the front page but it isn't so bad. If I were you I'd add some contrast to the style you have and offer something darker for people that don't like bright themes. I'll join when I get time tomorrow the site itself looks interesting.

By the way if you play fighting games send me your steam profile and I'll add you. I run a local group that meets every week. I play other stuff but fighting games are the main thing at the moment. If you're up for some sets I'd be happy to play, I own all the games played in tournament settings (my group plays a lot of stuff) and I also play a lot of doujin games as well.

Ah, I understand. I will try to come up with something a little darker so that you don't have to suffer from the brightness :D. Awesome, we would love to have you as part of our community. I'm a console gamer at the moment, unfortunately.

We have been growing since our launch. It would be great to see you join the gaming community at Hive Gamurs. Not into gaming? Then come on over and have a quick chat in the general chat of our forum. We also just released another patch to fix a few issues, bugs and to add some new features. The patch notes can be found here: https://www.hivegamurs.net/forum/news-&-annoucements/61

I really love the look and feel of the forum. I was really thinking about signing up but then I got 500 error when I clicked the Forum link. So I guess I will have to wait but would love to check out the forum once it's up. Keep on pushing.

Thank you very much. Could you check again? It seems to have just been a small issue that has managed to resolve itself.

I signed up but whenever I login I get a hosting error:

Screen Shot 2017-11-07 at 10.17.38 AM.png

And now I can't view any page of the site without clearing my cache and cookies first. Then when I try to login once more, I get the same error and have to clear website data again. My username is MoldyTomatoes, I'm not sure if it got registered or not but as soon as I went to login after registering, I got the above error.

Thanks. Hope it is fixed soon.

getting a 500 error when clicking on any forum with an "&" in it. Curious why you went with a custom built system instead of something pre built

Sorry about that. The issue should be fixed now :). Because the site is mainly a social gaming platform with the forum as an added feature.

A member of our gaming community? No? Then you are missing out my fellow gamer. Come on over and join our community at Hive Gamurs. If you're not in gaming, then you can enjoy a quick chat with our members on our forum.

Why not join us and discuss whether or not you buy used games: https://www.hivegamurs.net/forum/gamur-lounge/52

It's been a hectic month. But Hive Gamurs is finally out of BETA! We have also finally released our clan management system with much more to come very soon. And if that wasn't enough, we have had a bit of a brand redesign with a brand new logo and social media rebranding :).

Come on over and have a look: https://www.hivegamurs.net
