What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
Flat, flat, flat. Flat, but not amateur looking flat. HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to use http://designmodo.github.io/Flat-UI/ Classic, elegant, crisp, modern flat. Microsoft could almost be used as the standard. But I also like obvious and big. Big buttons, big icons, and labels if needed. I prefer eliminating ambiguity even if this means sacrificing that slick look Apple loves. I'd rather the designer dedicate most of his/her time to finding the right fonts, the proper colors, icons and shapes rather than looking for cool new graphics, moving banners, and such.
First page is a landing page with login option and a couple other features. Second page is the home page after logging in. Third page is when user chooses "create and event" (similar to eventbrite.com). Fourth page is the "Main Interaction Forum"....similar to facebook where you can make comments, select profiles to view more, or private message. Please see mock-ups.
What to avoid
logo is attached, but please don't let that dictate your direction. I wish the my logo actually had more flat and less shiny choices (there are a couple flat logo designs though).
