Hi,

I've just started with my new Forum on IBM Mainframes Technologies. This is a Support Forum and have no relation with IBM directly, at the moment. Have a look and leave a comment here -- be it positive, negative, criticism:

Your forum's content is great but I think you should put some effort into the design so it'll look a bit more decent.

Yes, i agree also with RoylanM.

I think put more attractive graphics - well, this is just my suggestion.

But, it is a good design. Nice Job buddy!

It's been changed now, if I recall correctly. What do you think about it now?

And it's late to ask, still, what might you have meant by "decent" back then? Smile

I thought about it initially but IBM Mainframes Programming is a serious business and most of the its practicnors are pretty aged so I kept it it very 'plain' with no graphics. However, if you suggest some Forum or other website for reference, please do so -- I'll have a look and see if I can pick a thing or two.

And nonetheless, Thanks both for your time and suggestion! I know I'm late in Thanking you but a Thank You is a Thank you, timeless! Smile

I think many forums are dying these days due to touchscreen devices, smartphones and tablets. Text input is uncomfortable when no feedback is given by 'keys'. Desktops are tools of the past, many teenagers don't have a clue of what a 'tower' computer or notebook is.

Your domain name http://www.ibm-mainframes.com/ is actually misleading and exactly looks like another site http://www.ibmmainframes.com which is your main competitor. So you are actually driving traffic to your competitor because people forget to put the hyphen usually while typing the domain name. Also lot of contents in your forums are duplicate of your competitor's and i couldn't find much unique resources in your site. As per my SEO analysis you are getting 46 unique visitors per day even after 3 years, while your competitor is getting 3500 unique visitors everyday. Please change your domain name and add more unique resources if you want to succeed in the future.
