    Rate it out of 10 and suggest things.

    I made it with PHP and mysql. I guess if this doesnt belong here or something(didn't see other rating topics) just let me know and I'll delete it.

    well as far as looks go, it's not impressive, but the fact that you coded it all yourself is something worth some props. really if you want a good board, just model it after vBulletin, because they really are quite nice and the admin side is really nice. I'd give you a 6 because you coded it, there are some features missing that would be helpful and the graphics really aren't anything special. good job though.

    I added some features. How many times a topic has been viewed, email verification for sign up and password recovery. I also more information about the last post which in my opinion makes it look much better. As far as graphics go there aren't any images besides the one at the top(banner type thing). I'm adding quotes soon.

    9/10
    Good work!
    The only thing I can suggest is using cleaner graphics. Find the colors that focus on the text and not the graphic itself.

    very nice, i'd say 7/10 and I'm willing to increase that to 8 or 9, if you remove the big bars that show the date posted and post number. It just seems more distracting and makes the date, post# look more important than the actual text message itself. Other than that, excellent work.

    I wouldn't say remove them, either tone them down or lighten the color of the body text.

    EDIT: Great page by the way!!
