Nice Mods!
Though I dont like the skin.

This is good, the mods really makes something like this better then all the rest. Myabe someone at Google Might find this and join Wink

Well done and Good Work.

Nice. I would change the font color of the 'Forum', 'posts / topics', etc. as that orange on the blue is nearly impossible to read. Also, try and move the user login boxes down just a bit. Other than that, looks pretty nice.

hehe nice forumm..interesting

Great concept. Cool design. I think your site is pretty neat! Also I love what the links do when you hover over them! How'd you do that?
Gavilan
Its all pure HTML, thanks for the feedback guys ! although I dont think google would like the Logo huh?
Hobbit
I don't think they will care because it's a FAN site, if it was a hate site then they would do something about it.
darrenpaul
its a nice site and a really good concept, but I'd say Google would have a problem with it

Nice work at all.
But you just have replaced the logo of phpBB by your own logo "googolians'.
Another question; Is your website useful at all?
webbgbg.se

Gavilan
Hey guys thanks for all the input, I changed the skin! so you guys might want to chekc it out Smile

Your site's looks more like google-watch, a site against google. I suggest changing the skin and/or integrating the logo better into the design.
Technaut

i don't think they would be able to say much, this logo is differant than theirs. what are they going to do, sue Gavilan because his logo looks almost the same as the Google logo?
einstein

They have done in the past, the key word is "All of Google's trademarks, logos, web pages, screen shots, or other distinctive features."...I know MacDonalds, tried to sue a fast-food outlet called "Supermacs"...even though the logo was different...all because of the inclusion of "Mac."

I love the MODs on the forum, but some of the layout isn't so good; for example, the log in thinggy in the top right of every page looks messy and seems to be randomly floating. There's also loads of space at the bottom of the pages and I don't like the 'View my stats' link, it's in the wrong font and uses up too much room and increaces the space at the bottom of the page. The Googolians logo looks terrible when viewed in the UBSlate style because you can see loads of white outlines.

Apart from that it's great.

hahahahahha, nice logo, I like it. Your site is cool, nice job with the forums. Forums are hard to obtain members because they take a lot of work setting up and stuff. I used to be an administrator to fairly successful forums and we had to deal with a lot of crap, so I commemorate you for owning googolians.
