A forum is a category to a website BTW. You want a forum to be attractive but not gushing with special effects and eyecandy - it is too easy to get lost.
I don't mean to be evil or anything but I critic people, I don't like people just saying "that looks awesome". When people look for advice I give it to them (at least stuff related to gfx) . real CNC is not suppose to be sweet and nice, get used to it.
I see. So you're using 56k to measure the loading speed of a website. And you actually tried it.
Like i've said, what makes you think that there are too many images? How do you define that?
I give you one etc..
Based on animefuel forum, there are a total of 143 images ( 675 KB)
On the design i've shown, it only got 83 images ( 377 KB )
Unless you're telling Animefuel forum are having too many images and take a pretty good time to load as well?
Then i will have no further comment.
Tbh, i don't see how this following quote is a constructive advice to me.
Care to explain how constructive it is?
Basically a newbs attempt at web layout design...I have seen better.
Now i'm giving you an advice.
If you want to critic people please do it properly. Don't do it just for the sake of it.
