Initial Feelings Assessment
When I first opened up the forum, the first thing that popped in my head was,
"Wow, the theme is amazing!". The banner popped out at me, it looked amazing on the forum, the design was pretty
nice too, the black, red and green matched the forum theme so well! Personally, if I had the time, I would go back
and check out the forum! One thing that would make it more appealing to me is a welcome window that explains
briefly what the forum is about, therefore, users can decide whether they want to join or not faster!
The posts in the forum do not go into too much detail, most posts tend to be quite short, but to the point! The forum
isn't too active however, I would suggest advertising more and becoming an affiliate with other forums! I would also
suggest to post more in depth posts, do not simply go straight to the point, give the users something to think about,
this way, they can possibly learn something, and better understand your thoughts! The forum does have a fun thread
forum, in this forum, users get engaged in fun conversations or games, however, the games do not make the
community better. I would suggest adding more engaging topics that get users to know each other more, and make the
community warmer, and thus better! As i continued to browse the forum, i found that many threads were locked, this
is not something I would expect, since most of the posts can be replied to, which makes for a better community, and
a higher post count for the forum itself! Some of the forum is, in my opinion, quite dull, the users do not engage in
conversations well, this makes forum relationship un-important. I would suggest encouraging users to get into more
engaging conversations, therefore, more friends are made, as a result, more users would log on daily! The forum is
still more fun in some areas. The users talk like characters in Harry Potter movies, this is great because they match the
forum's theme and make me get a laugh!
Appearance & Stylistic Insight
The forum has a great look, and feel! The color of the boards and background match really well together, and with
the forum's theme! The banner looks pretty nice on the black background, and matches the forum theme really nicely!
I would only suggest one thing to the banner, make it more complex. To me, it looks just like words "The Dungeons"
stamped onto a picture in a pretty nice font! Overall, the theme and appearance looks really nice! The theme looks very
well but, I'm not quite sure whether it is custom or not, custom themes make forums more unique, so the admin might
want to consider that!
Attractiveness & Appeal Appraisal
Personally, I do not like Harry Potter, so in my case, I would not join. However, I must make this review fair, and
gladly, I will pretend like I love the series! The theme and custom images really welcomes me, it makes me want to
register right away and start to join in the community! The names of the forums and categories are really unique, it
is really a nice add to the forum, it also makes me want to join in and see what is going in there! The group names are
also unique! Instead of simply putting moderator, admin, member, etc., the admin put names like professor, which
a unique group name that matches the Harry Potter theme! Overall, the forum is very attractive to me, and would
definitely persuade me into joining!
Statistical & Analytical Inspection
The post count makes the forum sound really young! I myself would have expected atleast 3 times more than that! I
would suggest advertising more, and adding more forums and categories, give the users a wider range of choice of
posting! Fortunately, between the starting date of your forum, there have been events including the Olympics and
Paralympics, Spring and March Break, Easter and I'm sure, some birthdays! All of these events interfered with the
amount of users on per day! Unfortunately, I was not there to experience it, so that is just an inference, so I will
have to go statistic wise, and unfortunately, your forum has not met up to my standards!
Unfortunately, your forum has not met the standards of a forum opening almost 3 months ago! This forum has great
potential, but the admins need to stay dedicated to the forum, and help it improve! I wish you the best of luck on your
forum, and I hope to get the chance to review again after some updates have occured!
Final Score: 88.5/100
