What's New? Currently.... SBC has hit over 500 members! This is great news for us, and hopefully we'll be getting to 600 members soon. Also, a brand new contest is going on. The first 5 users to find a golden ticket hidden somewhere on the forum, will get early access to v7! Congratulations to SOF who was the first person to find the ticket. Remember - use your heads! There are only 3 spots left. See the "Lost Temple" announcement on the homepage for more. Speaking of contests, don't forget to participate in our other contest to put a funny, original caption on an image. The winner will receive 1000 doubloons. In the future... SBC will be moving to vBulletin on August 26th, 2011. This will also be the launch of v7. We had a good time on forumotion, but it is time for us to move. Stay tuned for more!

Forumotion Review 2

Post by that70sguy92 on 8/20/2010, 9:46 am


The SpongeBob Community


First Impressions - ( 12 / 20 )
    Ok, starting my first impression with the portal since its the first page I saw when I opened the link, first of all, I'd say that the forum doesn't have that constant colors or design on the forum, I;m seeing different colors from the background colors of the forum and the forum's color scheme which is a bit confusing, to go further, I'd say that the portal looks incomplete for me as a guest since I can't see any widget between the widgets on column1(left) & column3(right), there should be a widget standing there so that it doesn't look the portal is under construction, I suggest you placing a news widget on the middle, that should fix the appearance of the portal, it should have been better with it, although I must say that the portal looks organized overall, ok, when I came to the index, the colors are more confusing for me, the background, the whole forum's color scheme and the color of category tables, they're all different which looks confusing, really, I'll explain more later on the lay out part, the index looks good and neat and it could have been better if you stick on 1 color scheme only, and I'm not in favor of showing the sub forums on the index which should be hidden, it looks better, the graphics are fine, Everything seems fine! Just need some modification to some parts of the forum.


Graphics & Layout - ( 10 / 20 )
    Let's start mainly with the graphics of the forum, to the major graphics, starting with the banner, I definitely think that the banner is fine, very fitting for your spongebob forums although I feel that it's lacking something, I would suggest you adding a background to it, like background such as sea, ocean, etc. but can be seen on any episode of spongebob something related to spongebob, Try adding more designs to it. To your navigation bars, they're fine, I saw this kind of navigation bars and they're not new to me, but they're nice and very fitting for the color scheme of the forum which is cyan. So I think that's fine. To the forum icons(new post, no new post & forum is locked), I say they are nice for the forum, keep that up, to your 'Who is Online?' icon, I'd say it looks cool, an animated 'Patrick' looks gorgeous & 'eyecatchy' there, that's nice.
    Now to the categories & forums/organization of the forum, I guess you have this nice and unique set of forums on the index, I think they're all fine for the forum. Ok, with the organization of the categories & forums on the index, actually, I saw some wrong/unprofessional positioning of forums on the index, first of all, I would suggest to put your announcement forum after the 'rules' forum you have, It's definitely more important than your guest forum, it'll be more noticable, and also, one more thing, I suggest you to place your off-topic category(Nautical Non sense) to the last portion of the index, categories with forums related to the forum's subject should be placed at nearly top to get the forums more noticed & to make the index look attractive and professional, try to fix those things. Also, as I suggested from the first impression part, try hiding the sub forums from the index, it's made to be hidden, it'll look better.
    Ok, Now to the forum's color scheme, as I'd mentioned earlier, I'm a little bit confused with the color scheme of the forum, your background is darkblue with floral flower figures, the forum's body color is cyan and the category tables are in yellow, so that makes it really confusing, I suggest you sticking on 1-2 colors only, combination of yellow and cyan would be great for a spongebob forum, try also making the color of the background lighter, it'll look better then.


Forum Activity - ( 20 / 20 )
    Overall, the activity the forum has is considered brilliant! I'm seeing a smooth flow of posting & users activity onto the forum which really looks nice, to go further, starting with the posting activity of the forum, I say that you had a brilliant impression on this criteria, Every forum seems to have lots of posts and there are new posts being made to most of the forums, the total amount of posts(28,954 posts) is brilliant achievement for the number of members you have, keep that up for the posting activity, ok, now to the users activity, I'm definitely also seeing a very nice activity here, I'm seeing lots of members being logged in the past 24 hours, It also looks brilliant to see atleast 5-7 users being online while I' reviewing the forum, pretty good activity. Keep that up.


Staff & Usergroups - ( 15 / 20 )
    Starting with the groups, I'm definitely counting 5 groups, and seeing a very nice set and amount of groups you have, although I'm seeing a problem with the color of 1 of the group(Members group), try making it a little darker since it's blending to the light color scheme the forum has, ok, now, to the amount of staff, I'm counting only 4 administrators, although I'm considering that the forum has lots of members logging in each period, 4 admins is quite many because I don't see the point of getting so many admins, I only recommend 3 admins, 3 moderators are fine, and for graphics designers, you definitely need to hire atleast 2-3 considering the activity of the forum.


Originality & Unique Quality - ( 17 / 20 )
    I don't see quite new features from the forum, although I'm seeing quite unique forums on the index and with some graphics.


74 / 100




Brittany: Well, family is a place where everybody loves you no matter what. And they accept you for who you are. I know I'm going to be a bridesmaid at Mike and Tina's wedding. And I'm going to be anxiously waiting just like everybody else to see if their babies are Asian too. When they find an operation to make Artie's legs work again, I'm going to be there for his first steps. I love them, I love everyone in glee club and I get to spend another year with the people I love. So, I'm good.
Santana: What about you and I?
Brittany: I love you Santana. I love you more than I've ever loved anyone else in this world. All I know about you and I is that because of that, I think anything's possible.
Santana: When did you get so smart?

Actually, on our grading scale, it would be considered a D+ Silly Face! However, this implies that we're making progress and should keep up the hard work Wink
