If the background contrast is too much, then I'll look into doing a more subtle background. Thanks for the feedback. :D

I'll bite the bullet and add mine just to support woltlab, I still need to do server stuff such as setup cache so there's plenty of room to improve speed: http://goo.gl/8pl1k0
The load time is pretty good to be honnest, about 1 to 2 seconds load time from a amsterdam server.

I could make mine a bit faster using the following htaccess content:
Code:
Header unset ETag
FileETag None
# gzip Compression if availiable
<ifModule mod_deflate.c>
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html text/plain text/xml application/xml application/xhtml+xml text/css application/javascript
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4\.0[678] no-gzip
BrowserMatch \bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html
Header append Vary User-Agent
</ifModule>
# CACHING VERBESSERN - ANFANG
<ifModule mod_expires.c>
ExpiresActive On
ExpiresDefault A300
ExpiresByType text/html A5
ExpiresByType application/javascript A604800
ExpiresByType text/css A604800
ExpiresByType image/x-icon A604800
ExpiresByType image/gif A604800
ExpiresByType image/png A604800
ExpiresByType image/jpeg A604800
ExpiresByType text/plain A300
ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash A604800
ExpiresByType video/x-flv A604800
ExpiresByType application/pdf A604800
</ifModule>
<ifModule mod_headers.c>
<filesMatch "\.(ico|jpe?g|png|gif|swf)$">
Header set Cache-Control "public"
</filesMatch>
<filesMatch "\.(css)$">
Header set Cache-Control "public"
</filesMatch>
<filesMatch "\.(js)$">
Header set Cache-Control "private"
</filesMatch>
<filesMatch "\.(x?html?|php)$">
Header set Cache-Control "private, must-revalidate"
</filesMatch>
</ifModule>
# CACHING VERBESSERN - ENDE

I believe I have something similar in my .htaccess not sure if it's exactly the same though.

Nice colors to it, very relaxing colors actually. :) Going to add more forums to it?
That's what I was getting ready to ask. Nice looking site. But the forum only has the introduction section. Perhaps there are more forums shown to registered members? Maybe the site is going to be structured around the profiles, gallery & blogs? IDK. The concept seems a solid one though.

A bit off-topic with this following comment - but ....


Nice job on the site though.
Now it's time to get out the promotional tools and build your memberbase!
Best of luck with it ;)

Thanks for all the positive feedback, yes the site is very profile focused as the core concept is about dating but the gallery, forum and blog are important too as we want to mould traditional dating with community features. The site is still under development so all content is simply test content it will all be removed and replaced and yes, forums will be added and gallery categories etc. I actually own another forum and have had 3-4 others over the last 10+ years but this is my latest start from scratch idea. Thanks again everyone :)

Nice and fast, too.
I like that fanficfans forum theme, nice and easy on the eyes.

Friend of mine just linked me this thread. I'm the main admin behind that board/site and I'm also the one that chose to use WoltLab software a while back. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask me.
As a sidenote: we're currently hosting the site on a server cluster made up out of two dedicated webservers and multiple smaller VMs that host different services. However I'm also experimenting with moving the site to the cloud, our newest (still secret) project running on WCF is already hosted by Microsoft Azure.
