    I can't really think of anything wrong with it. What ways are you trying to get traffic to it?

    It took a bit to load, but not too long that it would chase visitors away.
    I like how organized everything is. The formatting is really clean.
    The icons used on the forum are nice. Are they custom made?
    The threads itself look very plain. I'm not a fan of the lack of a postbit.

    The icon fonts take about 1.2 seconds to load each here.
    There are three of them, one weighing in at 142KB, one weighing in at 115KB and one weighing in at 70KB.

    They also likely contain many, many icons you don't actually use and slow things down for no reason. Instead you likely want to load the individual icons as SVGs, so that you only load what you actually need.

    The most beautiful Xenforo forum I have seen so far. I like the default light theme.

    Can you take a look now? I optimized the welcome image which had a file size of 2.8mb, that most probably made the icons and the page load slower.
