    When you look at a forum, does your first impression change whether you join or not?







    For me it definitely does. I want a forum I frequent to look good, and if it doesn't then it means suitable effort hasn't been put in.

    Yes first impressions are everything, if you don't like how it looks or how it is laid out then you probably won't join or put many posts.

    i dont actually care about the layout, i will always spend about 10 minutes to browse the contents. If the content is great, i will stay, else leave from the forum.







    Of course, i dont mean layout is not important, just personal preference

    Depends on the genre. If its a fairly default genre, then I'd say it needs something unique. If the genre helps me in some way, then I couldn't care less about the design.

    I guess it does. I check mainly for the following:



    • Some kind of proper domain name.


    • Good forum software


    • Professional staff


    • Effort on the staff's part


    • A theme that I can stand

    It highly affects if I join. I look for a nice theme, not a default theme. The forum's neatness also counts towards my impressions.

    The look of the forum doesn't matter too much to me providing the content is excellent, but if by the index page you can tell the forum is a catastrophe then I won't join.
