Looks good to me. Not too flashy and a relatively clean layout.

I really like the gloss. Its clean and the color scheme of black and gray work out very well.

Well done.

Glad everyone likes it. After I finish up another project I'm working on, I'll hash out a simplified version for us to start with.

I like the layout. Very good on the eyes, and it's easy to find things on as well.

Looks good. Also, please add a link at the top (or somewhere easily accessible) for Servers, as that is all I will ever use the website for :p

You're actually going to just dump people in here? I may not know much about website design but that's a pretty jarring transition.
Yes, For many reasons that outweigh the reasons for having a stand alone forum. I have 3 vbulletin licenses myself that could have been used.

This was requested by Kyle.
This nets about 3 million times more traffic
Everyone is already registered.

I dont suppose there's any chance of getting support for a second [H] skin option that matches the hard gaming design?

I highly doubt it. The skin H is using now was custom. Having a custom skin made for this forum would cost around 600+. As you can tell its not worth it and i doubt Kyle would go for it.

You're on a forum full of people well enough versed in PHP, CSS, HTML and such...I doubt it'd cost 600 or more.

And if it DOES cost that much for a theme, I need to start moonlighting or something, making themes is pretty simple :)

At the VERY LEAST make the forum link come to the community sub forum.

Skinning vbulletin isn't hard its very time consuming. The website will go to this subforum

I don't like it when articles are placed side by side like that. It looks good, yes, but isn't very practical.

Please use Arial Black for the logo font. The [H] is a registered trademark, so please put a little circle R in the corner of it.

The metallic background, give a solid look. And yes it's very clean.

But maybe make it say. "Live [H]ard. Play [H]ard. [H]ard Gaming."

Or at least have "Hard Gaming." at the end.

It is clean, this is what i like, it is simple.. yet has flash where it needs it, the eye catchers are going to be the custom images made for each game / focus point

as Smart Driver said, the Metalic look gives it a "solid" appearance absolutely, which goes well with [H] over all theme.

i enjoy the shadow back drop on main titles, it helps in a subtle way to show a title or something important over the text to draw ones attention.

Its more than just a website and information center, its a representation of what and who we are.
