Time for some review and cleanup on the site. I still cannot get over the fact that the site's home page is so messy, splashed with unnecessary categories. Let me recall what we have on the home page:

Top:

Kuching Classified | Hotels & Accomodations | Kuching Car Rental

Then you have a row of site navigator, search area and account link.

From Left to Right Columns:

LEFT
1) Main Menu, basically repeating some of the site navigator we find in the top.

2) User Menu - bascially an exploded list of 'my account' link on the top

3) Who's Online - fair enough

4) Online history - usually this are left to the bottom of the page

5) Message box - good shout out area

6) some italics words "BBcode=off" - don't know what it is.


MIDDLE
1) Recently replied topics - a good headsup

2) Netword Digest - Is this really necessary? I CBB to know what it is

3) headlines - should be on the portal page instead

4) Recent Comments - not necessary

5) Sponsors - necessary but wrong place, should be on the banner since they are sponsors

6) Recent photos -

7) Recent Photos - another one, I guess showing the photos is good enough.


RIGHT
1) Another search - OMFG

2) Notice to visitors - what's there?

3) Kuching Travel - good guidelines

4) Upcoming events - should replace network digest

5) Top Poster - what motivates me, so it must stay HAHAHA

6) New Members - again, just place this on the bottom together with 'who's online or last visited'

7) Partners - right place

8) Sponsors - Another one? wtf?


__________________________________________

That's my site review, plenty of potential, but needs some clean up first :)

you need someone to guide you what should be and what shouldn't be, in the forum, someone like, me

Anyway, these are the categories I think you should emit from the site, as they are basically useless and throughout my membership period in this site, I had never used them:

- multiple 'SEARCH' buttons : I think one is far from enough, just make one, on the top of the page and that is it.

- User Menu : just remove this and the users can edit everything in the account page through 'my account' s link.

- Who's Online + Online History + New Members : Dump all this categories under one category at the bottom of the site, newest member to list only the newest member (1 only)

- Network Digest + Recent Comments + Recent Photos : Remove all these categories, there is 2 'Recent Photos' ; so just keep the one with the photo posted and that is it.

- Notice to visitors - emit this.

as you know I am the only admin for this site.

the site had slowly evolve from a small site, so you can see the traces of "redundancy" as you pointed out in the navaigation and others.

I have been tryong to eliminate weblog section and put them soimewhere else. and as for the photo section as well.

but sort of got rather busy lately.
my laptop just confirmed KO yesterday by HP techician.
