I’m really impressed by the way this site is laid out, and by the many thoughtful features it has. As someone who takes a lot of pride in designing great websites, I just had to take a moment to give the web team props for a perfectly executed online community. Perhaps the highest compliment that I can give… I spend entirely too much time on this website!

Martin is the guy to thank. He pretty much built this from the ground up…

Well, nothings perfect, but I sure don’t have anything in particular to complain about and generally come here everyday. That says something. It’s a pretty dad blame nice site I would say.

It loads fast and is well laid out. No complaint here.
The pulse button right up front is the smartest feature. If you want to stay out of fights, just stay on your watched list on the pulse page. That’s my favorite feature by far.

Pulse is awesome. So are the options in the Projects section for viewing by most viewed, most commented, most favorited, etc. And the general structure- Blog, Shop, Projects, Forums… just so well thought out.

Of course, it’s the wonderful, helpful, friendly people – and the accumulated knowledge – that makes it such a valuable resource, but the site wouldn’t have attracted all the great people if it wasn’t so well thought out.

It is absolutely the most user-friendly site. I don’t feel like I am wasting my time trying to post or find my way around.

Yup, I have never seen anything that comes close to the layout and handy features. Way to go Martin ;-)
