    Thanks @EbookLover for your feedback and suggestions. Maybe I'll try something else in the future, but that's just a matter of website design.

    Readability (specially replies) - that's valid concern, I should improve that. Thank you.

    Great domain and forum.

    I don't see why you aren't using an already established forum platform like xenforo, etc.. this will give you time to focus on content and managing the community rather than developing the forum from scratch.

    Thank @AdamFL

    I could use whatever vB/Xen/... but long-term sustainability is a concern for me. I want to be able to implement any features if I need. With Laravel based app I can do that easily, as I am backend Laravel developer.

    I don't really like Xenforo.
    I don't like it's boxy look, and hierarchical forum/category structure.

    The only thing I'd be willing to switch to is Discourse, not sure what other people think though.

    Most definitely. Discourse is the awesome new kid on the block, but different in terms of usability for certain niches/industries. Just look at the comments here. Everyone seem to prefer oldschool forum style.

    You gotta listen to your users. But people here aren't necessarily your users, so there's that.

    While I agree with you that most people here prefer traditional hierarchical forums, we are building new website in different niche.
    If I was building alternative domain name forum, I'd probably ask what people here think, because it's the same audience.

    In case of SEO forum, there is no history - we can set our own standard for coming years. Sure enough, it has to work for new users, provide information they are looking for, respond quickly and be intuitive to use. But it's different case - that's why I don't really judge our potential audience by what people here say.

    Nonetheless, I am super grateful for opinions and feedback in this thread!

    IMO...

    I wouldn't change a thing, I really like the modern new look. Maybe because I am used to Flarum and is somewhat similar.

    I really really really appreciate people that want to make their own stuff instead of using others. That is what I do as well. I am in the process of creating a forum like system that resembles 4chan, the popular website.

    Good luck :)

    Few more updates and fixes to the site deployed this week.

    If you have any particular suggestions, I'll be happy to discuss/consider/implement.

    Thanks!

    This is what I see via mobile 📱
    The Page is stretched out and you have to scroll to see the rest of the information.

    This should be improved and corrected!! for a better mobile experience considering that mobile owners are out numbering computers.
    The design looks simple!! and could be improved!!

    Also you have to look for categories scrolling down from the website!! Categories should be easily available from the drop down menu rather than having to scroll through the entire website

    Yeah, thanks. I am well aware of mobile issues, working on mobile layout now.

    simple design == bad design?

    Simple design actually = good design
    You just have to make sure that people can find the information they need right away.

    I do not agree with the above statement. Mobile owners are not out numbering computers. On my website, from 500 visitors, only around 30 or so are using mobile devices. But again, this is just from my experience.

    Of course, it is good to have a mobile version of your site.

    Keep up the good work. When this will become open source, if it will, I will use it for sure.
