PostSubject: Official Resistance Retribution Website Review!   April 21st 2011, 11:12 am

I went on the main forum site for Forumotion and requested a review of this website to get suggestions. Here it is Very Happy :

Resistance Retribution Community


First Impressions - Rating: Good
    The first thing I noticed was your navigation bar. Even though it was red, it still stuck out. While other parts of your theme are red, they are more "grunge-like". They're almost a dirty red. I suggest that you update your navigation bar to a darker red coloured one, or one that isn't as clean or sleek, as the sleek type does not match the other parts of your board. Also, though this is not a huge issue, your forums favicon seems out of place. While the keyboard suggests the forum is gaming-related, the colour do not suit the theme. I believe that the game is for the PSP, not the computer? It would improve your forum if you found a darker gaming-related favicon. Maybe something from in-game?


Graphics & Layout - Rating: Good
    From what I observed, your forum's skin is pretty good. It goes well with your gaming theme (the dark and red colours) and is not too "busy" or distracting to the eye. It is simple, yet effective. The index buttons are good, as they are easily distinguishable from one another and they also match the skin. My only issue, as I mentioned earlier, was the navigation bar. There are ample resources in the Graphics Gallery here. If you wanted to, you could even request for a custom bar. One other thing I noticed just while browsing the forum, was that the rank stars for VIP members as well as the "General" set of ranks, are made for white backgrounds. This creates a blotchy white outline of them which negatively contrasts with the black background. I'm sure there are stars in the Gallery here that are designed for darker skins. However, overall, your forum's graphics are well done and there are only a few things that could be improved on..


Forum Activity - Rating: Excellent

    Your forum stats are very nice. At the time of the review, there were over 10 people online (registered members), and a handful of guests. When I viewed the forum, it was pretty late at night for myself, and most of North America. That meant that most likely these guests were either from Europe, Asia or Australia. Having a good international member list is key. This way there will always be posts made, compared to only during the daytime. You also had over 18000 messages on your forum. Your member to post ratio was pretty good also. Unlike many other forums, more than half of the posts were in the Resistance Retribution related boards. Many sites Ive visited have only a handful in their "niche" boards, while the rest are all in the General Discussion area. This is completely the opposite with your forum and shows that you have an interested member base.


Staff & Usergroups - Rating: Average
    As I was not registered and therefore could not view the populations of the member groups, I could only gather my information from the index and posts. One thing I noticed immediately was that you had quite a lot of user groups. A lot of them seemed to be generally post-rank groups (members with 150 posts, 1000 posts, etc). I could be totally wrong and they could be something completely different, but if they are meant to be for the amount of posts a member has, it does seem a tad excessive. All of the different colours would get confusing to me, and I am sure that they would to others. I suggest that you limit the different groups to only 2. One for members, and then one for members with, say, 1000 posts. If you want to have many different levels/ranks, then you should do it through custom ranks or just using the regular rank editor. You can colour the ranks themselves, if you are looking for colour to help distinguish between the high and low posters. To summarize, I believe that you have a little bit too many groups, and that limiting the amount you use would be a lot better.


Originality & Unique Quality - Rating: Good
    Since your forum is directed at a specific game it deserves some credit. You are focusing on one specific niche and fan base. Many gaming forums are directed at all types of gaming consoles, games, etc. You focus specifically on one game for one console and the fact that your forum is so successful is to be commended. It may just be me, because I do not usually go to gaming forums, but yours is the only Resistance Retribution forum I've seen on Forumotion. Also, a unique feature you have on your board is the stats script. I like how you created a link within the board name so that members would be directly taken to the page with the statistics on it. This is a unique quality that your forum has. To conclude the review, I think that your forum is very successful. You seem to have found a niche that has little competition (to yourself), and therefore allowing your board to grow and have active posters. Keep it up!

Hell yeah!
Damn, this is awsome! For a site oldie like me, this is epic! Right ATV?
I think the user groups count is almost fine for a game like ours. I guess it's good we got rid of respected, it's more or less what VIPs are. =D
Man, I have had a shit day today, and this put a bit of a smile on my face. =D

Cool! That was a good review! All of those things he counted as flaws are nothing we can fix really. Like the graphics, we don't have any gfx artists so we're fucked there.

You can view it, but there isn't any need to reply to it, imo.
