    Untitled.jpg Originally started under my still running sister site Studentfilms.com which launched it's forums in 2002... the film school portion of the forums were moved to FilmSchool.org in 2014.

    Traffic and active members is highly seasonal... pretty heavy usage during application season (Dec thru May) and somewhat slow the rest of the year.

    Any constructive critiques will be appreciated.

    Recently added Application Tracking (a "hacked" version of Bob's Showcase) to track people's applications as they go through the film school application process.

    "Nice Site"
    4/5,
    My only critic is the home page has a lot going on. You are bombarded with information as soon as you get to the site. In my opinion, I would break things up easier, making two columns for some information versus 1 column. You could also take the information from the home page and put them in their own links in the navigation. Other than that, good site.

    "Great Site"
    5/5,
    Pros - Great Film School Reviews (powerered by Showcase)
    Cons - May need more robust pages as content increases.
    I love you maxing out the available Xenforo resources to create the best content you can.
    Your admin experience shines through.
    Good luck with FilmSchool.Org !!!

      What do you mean by "robust" pages?
