    It seems a little plain to me... there is not much content to go through or anything, but i guess that will get better after the site has been up for a while. Another thing that I noticed is that the background on the header picture is not true white, I can see a color difference between that and the page background.

    Just like kanutervalve said, color would really benefit the site.
    Also, the banner looks a little blurry so you might want to get a higher resolution of the picture.

    Dont be afraid to use tables etc. It's nice that that script comes with a purely CSS template, but you could prolly source something free that looks more attractive.

    If I were a pet owner, I'd prolly expect a more vibrant layout.

    I suppose what I'm saying is what others above have said, plus don't be afraid to deviate from the script a little (I mean beyond tweaking a stylesheet and a graphic etc)

    Good luck with it :)

    Cheers,

    JL

    Yea, you need mroe color, more details, etc. Make the page come to life. You need pictures of pets, etc.

    However, I can see such a page working very well. There are already too many PHP forums these days so its nice ot have a variety. Your ofrums are empty. I could post since I have pets but try to get more people.
