Appreciate honest, constructive reviews of the site: Google Forums (http://www.googlecommunity.com)

Suggestions for not only the layout, but the general structure and feel of it are appreciated as well. :)

Big fan of green. Great job with the color scheme.

The typography is absolutely great. The varying font sizes are great, however, I think the typography size of the logo isn't proportionate with any other design element on the page. Bring down the size of the logo down some.

Also, left-aligned would probably look much better.

Great job, you're definitely not your average forum.

Looks very good. The issue to me is that the header seems a bit large. I think you shrink it by about 15%

... may be you could also do some kind of subtle fading gradient so its not just a solid green block?

Thats just a suggestion to experiment with. I'm far from some master graphic designer.

Everything else looks excellent. I like the variety in icons for the different sub-topics.

Very nice layout :)

I agree with the others, make the header a bit smaller. It looks huge compared with the size of the fonts. Also I think the footer has to be reduced as well. I would put the forum headings (Google forum, webmaster forums etc) in bold to make them stand out a bit more.

I love the color scheme, they work well together. The layout looks good on my monitor (1280x1024)

Seeing all the different sections for all the different google functions just reminds me of how google istaking over the net :)

"Guest, have you registered yet? It's fast and free."

Calling me 'Guest' is such a way is a little upsetting. I recommend a change in that statement; add a welcome or something.

I believe guest is just the default name on any board software for an uregistered user.
