Out of sheer interest, how much would it cost to have a professional make a website like this? Well not exactly a carbon copy of this, since this is obviously quite a big website, and I'm sure there's a lot more that's going on behind the scene so to say. But To a standard such as this. The level of customisation is very impressive. I wasn’t even able to tell it was based off VB until I saw the copyright at the bottom. VB’s default skin is absolutely awful.
Very briefly, off the top of my head, based on the following; forum, blog, reviews, classifications etc. etc. Something like gumtree with a little more order.
I apologise if this is in the wrong forum.
