Ok well me and a few friends have been working on this site www.tyroshack.com we are having alot of trouble getting members because alot of them say the layout is dull and boring so i was wondering if someone could check the layout out and maybe make a more eye catching banner and maybe a layout if you want to.
I can only learn what i want to learn.

I am not sure what the purpose of the site is (a brief phrase in the top banner might be good), but since it appears to be a forum, keeping it graphically simple and easy to navigate is more important than a lively (and distracting---gaming forums especially do that) layout. Let the content draw members.

Dear Osiris
Congrats for that site.
I have been through the site and I find it pretty good. Definitely, the gist of content can be grabbed on the first visit, and if somebody is interested in the content, they will surely join, as I did.

On the banner, you dint say tutorials on what subjects. To adjust that, add an introductory topic, in a small paragraph, about the site, just above the recent postings. The first look will be to that 'about' paragraph. So take care to hilite it a bit. Below it, you can include the postings that are updated.
Also it appears only as 'TyroShack' on the title bar of the browser. Add an extension like 'TyroShack-your ultimate guide to this and that...'
Thank you.
