Default What do you guys think?

Hey, I am setting up a new Fantasy Lit/Movie forum.

Here is what I have after 30 minutes or so of tinkering:
http://fantasyforum.freeforums.org/index.php

What do you guys think? What should I improve?

nobody ever joins them, they are VERY hard to find on a search engine or any other way for that matter without directly typing in the URL\or having it in your history\bookmarked.

that would help loads, you would get tons of hits on search engines that dont have page ranking systems.

make sure you pick a GOOD domain though, that fits the site, like www.fantasy-forums.com


EDIT
too bad that one is taken
