    I asked the person who reviewed our site the first time to review it once more with the changes in place. He kindly agreed.

    Michael Valentine wrote:First Impressions

    Activity (Score: 5/5): Every topic I read has posts in it from either today or yesterday. AKA, brilliant activity, doing great. Nothing need be said here,
    Template (Score: 5/5): It's easy to tell that it is in fact a sonic community. Ta ha, the site name and banner says it all. It's a perfect template for a sonic community.
    First Impressions total: 10/10

    Site Layout

    Organization (Score: 9.5/10): You've got everything organized excellently. Nothing defies the purpose, and there are no "useless" forums. A few things could be arranged a LITTLE bit differently. But 9.5 either way.
    Index Length/Number of Forums (Score: 10/10): I don't think your indec length could be any better. Even though I think you should have a few more Sonic Forums, as it is a sonic community, but isn't trully focused on Sonic. However, I won't take points off for that. Excellent
    Layout total: 19.5/20

    Style

    Template Layout/Color Scheme (Score: 8/10): I think it is a perfect layout and color scheme for a sonic community. The tiles are a bit annoying to the eyes, but other than that, great work...once again....
    Logo/Images (Score: 10/10): All your images are perfectly suited for Sonic Community, chaos emeralds, and the banner. Especially the banner. Once again, excellent.
    Style total: 18/20

    Site moderation

    Number of Staff (Score: 4.5/5): I will say that you are SLIGHTLY over-staffed. But only slightly.
    Staff Activity (Score: 5/5): All your staff look to be really active and great in the forums. Excellent.
    Staff Professionalism (Score: 5/5): Your staff is doing their job well. And that's all you need for five points.
    Moderation total: 14.5/15

    Site activity

    Posts Per Day (Score: 20/20): It is clearly evident that you get posts everyday, and you have a total of 32036 posts. Very fine.
    Number of Members (Score: 8/10): You could be better with how long your forum has existed, however, you have sealed a good community with 222 members thus far. So once again, I will say, excellent.
    Post/Member Ratio (Score: 5/5): I went through your members list, I only browsed a few pages, but there wasn't a single person within those pages that had a post count of 0. 5/5 for this score.
    Activity total: 33/35

    Overall mark: 95/100

    What could be done to improve the site: I highly doubt that there is much advice that I can offer. You have sealed the deal with keeping an active community for yourself, and everything there fits perfectly. The only thing I can really say I didn't like too much was the tiles, but even they were to my likings and had the Sonic grace about them.

    What is the best thing you liked about the site: Just about everything.


    The last score he gave us was: 70 C

    Now our score is: 95 A

    A forum username is valuable information?

    I haven't heard of anyone who reviews forums before either, that's partially why I was curious.

    I'm not lying when I say this, Zez. I think our boards are one of the best Sonic fan forums going out of them ALL. Not just forumotion. I mean out of every Sonic fan forum out there, we seem to be one of the most charismatic in what we do. We're establishing a great presence here, and all we have to do is to keep that ball rolling.

    Congratulations to all of us. We're a team, and without us none of this would've been possible.

    Yes, I do. In the chat box, you get a much more instantaneous reply to your posts, plus you can play around a little more in the CB. Forum is nice too, I just like getting replied to in real time.
