Alright ill try to give you specifics by posting links of certain parts of sites. If that doesn't help i can just edit your screenshot and make a rough design if you want me to. Ok here goes my attempt at explaining it:
The table headers would look cool if they looked something like the ones from
When i was talking about the member sumbitted backgrounds..
- has a feature that randomly displays theirs and other peoples backgrounds that they submitted. Or you could just do a custom one or a gradient background.
As far as the interface of the tables and stuff go, i would think a cool flowing connections of tables would look cool. This might not look as good with a forum, but you could use this guys patterns and styles looks
Also another look for headers and stuff would be a nice glossy look with maybe some gradient and some effects. Sort of like:
Another layout feature that would be nice is a full size banner that fits in with your template. The logo is fine right now, but maybe make it larger, center it, and add it to flow with your layout sort of like
One thing that looks good with any kind of site is: instead of having square tables, make them rounded. Rounded with a glossy look is really nice. Another factor that you might want to change is the color. Im sure you and alot of people don't really care about the color, but in my opinon, i think that the greyish bluish look is ugly =/ im sorry but it just doesn't seem to catch my eye at all. Thats just a few examples and ideas that would make Overclock.Net a more successful and better looking site. Like i said, i can still edit the version 4 screenshot and put it all together if you would like. If you want anymore examples or anything, just let me know.
