Opinions on my homepage?

  1. Hello! I was wondering on how you guys like the look of my server's homepage, most of the text isn't done, however the core design of the site is there, I'd appreciate feedback on what I could improve, thanks!

    Simple I think its nice., though the links to the forums is rather small.
    I would push for that a bit more if you want a forum community.

    Home page seems fine. Though since you want some hardier opinions ill give some things that bug me.
    home page:
    - Dead links
    - Didnt remove the other language message from the template
    - The box inside of the box is annoying. It should just be completely transparent. http://prntscr.com/1h9n47
    - White background, give it some textured white background
    - Random gray foot bar that separates almost nothing
    - Random blue and gray header bar at the top that doesnt fit
    - Make the links more vivid
    Forums:
    - Style looks bad to me
    - No way to get back to the homepage (that I can see)
    - Just looks cluttered (not sure why, but it does to me)
    Overall:
    - No type of logo, just putting 5diamonds looks bad
    - Try rewording things to make have positive connotation.

    Remember, this is constructive criticism.
     
  4. Thanks for the reply! Most of the things you mentioned were due to it not being 100% complete, I'll take what you said into consideration as I improve it.

    And the text block isn't a different language, it's dummy lorem ipsum text :p

    It's actually Latin according to google translator.
     
  6. It's nice. But you have xenforo, why not use xenporta?
