Network Overhaul....

I have just finished an overhaul on my network as we have expanded from just a model airplane network to encompass all types of model collectors. I would really like some honest feedback and or suggestions from all of the skilled NC's on the site!

All feedback is welcome and appreciated!

Thanks,

Matt

      Thank you! I hate ads also! All the work you put into your site and you try to squeeze and ad in somewhere! lol

  • NC for Hire

    Overall first impression: Sweet, clean, simplistic (a good thing). Adore the model car in header. If you didn't have the ad at top, you would have the wow effect. Maybe consider more space between header and ad.

  • simple, clean and sober. u may save space by reducing the size of car. here SIZE DOES NOT MATTER.........

  • Nice, sleek look Matt.  Wish I was a collector now. *lol*  I noticed that there are no blog or forum feeds on the home page.  Maybe they're still building or you don't wish them displayed but I think you could benefit by a RSS feed on the home page from some of your favorite scale model or collector magazines or Facebook pages.  I'd also throw your photos into a side column in slideshow fashion to "grab" a visitors attention.  Just my .02............nice job!

      Thank you!


      The site just transitioned from an all airplane model site to include all models... I have removed blogs from the home page only to make it look less about airplanes for the time being!


      Great idea about the RSS feeds! Than can give me the diverse content I need at least in the beginning if not all the time!

      Thanks

  • A review from top to bottom

    1. Compliments
      1. Favicon

                                                                   i.      Good job on the favicon, many creators dismiss that option.

    1. Header

                                                                   i.      Loving the car, clean and crisp.

                                                                 ii.      Instantly know what your network is about by the additional text. I’m sold. J

    1. Layout

                                                                   i.      Simple and defined.

                                                                 ii.      Easy to navigate.

    1. Header
      1. Advert

                                                                   i.      Remove

    1. Gives your network header the ‘WOW’ effect.
    2. Con: Loss of revenue stream for advert

                                                                 ii.      Increase Space

    1. Makes the header flow more smoothly.
    2. Creates more professional designer appearance.
    3. Modules
      1. Members

                                                                   i.      Feature members with real photos.

    1. Increases professional image of your community.
    2. Shows the vibrance of the community

    Overall, job well done.

    Cheerio,
    Jords
