Well there are a few little teeny weeny improvements I would do...
the main imageblock is not high enough so you dont see the second line of the text beneath the thumbnail..
goto ACP->vbgallery->modify addons and change setting for Activate Dynamic Content for Mainblock
it defaults for thumbnail size of 100. Add 20 to the value you have set actually and you should see the second line of text under the thumbnail.
- thumbnail size.
You have thumbs that have 100px and others that have 120px
I know there is a setting to set that per category, but actually it is not well supported by the css code.
there are 2 possibilities: either its on purpose, then its ok as long as you keep the general setting of thumbsize bigger than the one defined in the categories.
you just changed from 100 to 120 at some moment. In that case goto vbgallery=>maintenance and rebuild image sizes for thumbnails (to make it quicker just select categories that have the smaller size - or rebuild all categories)
- in gallery for unregged users you have vbulletin notice as well as global announcement. this is a question of taste.. but I personnally would switch off the global announcement for guests and show it only to regged users. So you only have 1 announcement per page. (vbulletin notice for unregged and vbgallery global annoucement for regged) I would change the content of both, including something about the gallery in the vbulletin notice and in global gallery announcement telling the user to upload images with link to upload page. but again that is really only a question of taste.
Except 1, the others are just suggestions Otherwise, nice site..
As long term tweaking project i would (but that is a vbulletin thing to change) add specific status icons in the colors of your style. (reddisch statusicons for red style, orange status icons for orange style etc...)
you can in vbulletin set separate image directories for each style..
example for orange style: images/orange_images
in vbgallery you would have to do the same.. (you can find precolored statusicons in the do not upload directory... )
But you would have to get vbulletin icons first, so that is not your priority.
