One Piece Forums
Review by Giorgios


Image First Impressions

Coming on to your forum for the first time, I like some aspects that I see. However, I'm confused by your domain name which is [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register], while your banner says One Piece Forums at the top. I'm not sure if this is a recent change in the domain, but I would recommend fixing the banner to make everything uniform. Your theme is simple but is easy on the eyes. Normally anime forums tend to be very right and the colors seem to run all over the place and clash very easily. 

Good


Image Design Quality

As I mentioned, your theme is elegant and simple. One thing I like is that you added that little figure to the right of every forum header which gives it more of a customized feel. One thing that would really help it go a bit farther is changing up the characters for every section, rather than having the same one through every section. As far as your logo, you've got the anime characters which is good, but the text is something that simply does not mesh with the characters. It looks out of place as far as font and color, so this would need to change. And rather than having it as a long header logo, move it to the left as to make it more sleek.

One other small cosmetic thing I noticed is that you have two links in your navigation bar that leads to the index of the forum. It looks like the Anime Manga Forum link is new, so I would say that it would be better to remove that forum.

Also on Claraviolet's profile, the Administrator image is showing up as broken as the link is currently showing the old One Piece domain.

Good


Image Site Statistics

Your site has no problems as far as activity with the small exception of one forum not having any posts in nearly about a month. However, this can happen when you have sections that do not always cater to everyone, which is common for forums like these. Your other sections with their level of activity easily overshadow this small flaw, which you should be proud of.

Your forum has been running for over a year it looks like, with the statistics just over 35,000 posts with 220 members. While your forum sections are showing daily activity, I'm a bit surprised by the numbers. Especially with the summer and people being out of school, this is a great way to capitalize on their free time to get more people on the site and posting. Do not let that stray you though, as I said your activity is good, there is some room though to work on getting more members.

Good


Image Originality

I took a look around and I found two forums that were strictly dedicated to discussing One Piece. In regards to your forum being original, I'm sorry to say that I struggle with finding any original aspects. One of the forums held an immaculate custom theme, but they are also boasting four years of existence and monumental statistics. Perhaps to make yourself original, you could have podcasts discussing the various episodes, or finding out how you can stream one of the episodes on the forum to where members can sign on and watch. This is where many forum owners struggle in finding their unique aspects, but it is certainly possible.

Very Poor


Image Site Structure

Your forum sections are the usual that I would expect in an anime discussion forum. You have the ever obvious community forums, followed by the meat of the forum which is the anime discussion strictly about One Piece. There is no issue with your structure, but perhaps splitting off the One Piece section and make an overall role play section so that way it appeals to more members? You will have more members being able to role play if you cater to all, rather than limiting to just One Piece. 

Average


Image Spelling & Professionalism

Your Staff seems to be doing really well. All of the Staff with the exception of one are within the Top 6(Seeing as you have six Staff Members), are the Top Posters of the forum. 

One thing I want to bring up is professionalism in some of the announcements though. In some cases I'm finding the use of excessive punctuation, and some have lower case words when they should be capitalized as they are proper nouns, and then some of the announcements are really informal. Informal would mean using smilies within the topic titles, using shorthand, etc. This can really end up putting people off sometimes as it can give off an unprofessional vibe for a potential member. Going forward, it's no problem to have fun when announcing things to the forum as with some amazing changes, but it should be done to where you still remain in the professional Admin light.

Average


Final Remarks

Anime Manga Forums does have some work to do, but it also has a great following as far as activity. With this being kept in mind, you want to make sure to remain within a certain niche, you have to pull out all the stops in trying to find that one original idea that will propel your forum into new heights. Most of the issues brought up within this review are cosmetic, so work on those and I wish you the best of luck!

I wish I knew how to design a website..........

" Justice is subject to dispute; might is easily recognized and is not disputed. So we cannot give might to justice, because might has gainsaid justice, and has declared that it is she herself who is just. And thus, being unable to make what is just strong, we have made what is strong just."

Well, he said design, not "code an website", so I guess he is referring to the looks of the website...

What Alakazam said........I do know how to code and create a website, but, only a basic one........

" Justice is subject to dispute; might is easily recognized and is not disputed. So we cannot give might to justice, because might has gainsaid justice, and has declared that it is she herself who is just. And thus, being unable to make what is just strong, we have made what is strong just."

Well, some fraud who got money from the main admin and gave us this crappy website and fled, I think.........Or, it's a theme that's already been designed, and is being used by us.........
