Hmm, the forum skin looks outdated and kinda unappealing. I recommend adding a modern touch to it. The edges look really hard, try smoothening them.

Honestly, I think you need a new logo, a better one at that. Your current one is just... unappealing.

There are so many things here and there, it looks a bit cluttered. It's an eyesore, really, all the options and stuff thrown everywhere. Try making it simpler, something like Marriland.

Simplify and beautify, that means you don't need much, just make what you have count. Anything more, and it looks messed up.

Symmetry is also a great factor in designing, your forums are NOT symmetrical. That means the logo, message body boxes, etc.

Also, margins are very important, your margins are small, I recommend you increase the margin.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I've definitely been looking into making a new layout for some time now, and recently I did make a few changes that made the layout a little bit better, but I agree, there's much more that can be done, and I'm definitely going to go into this with your thoughts in mind too.

A darker skin would be nice to see as well, I think.

Yes, the skin is sort of dull. Other than that, not much wrong with it.

This topic was actually created before the default skin (the one that's here now) was newly made, so I took all that advice into account already. But if there's any more advice anyone has, feel free to post it here!
