Architecture: When Traditional meets Informational

Dear IxDA members,
Some of you may have learned from my previous threads that I am a visual designer and I would like to propose a collective usability test for a project I just launched this week.
It's ARCHIcubed, a global network that promotes Traditional Architecture and Design in their many forms and disciplines. On one hand, professionals and students will be able to showcase their work and on the other, potential clients seeking for professionals will have the chance to start discussions about projects to be developed.
On top of that, the general public may also contribute posting relevant content, impressions, comments about the theme, achieving the project’s main goal: be an Inspirational Architecture Network.
Here is my proposal:
Because ARCHIcubed was something envisioned and built on my own with very little budget (not to say none), I feel it now needs input from other users. All I've had from external collaborators so far was some friends' feedback, like the ones Leo Sarmento gave me about flow issues or the motto itself "Inspirational Architecture Network", which he created.
Needless to say, a formal paid usability test right now is out of question for financial reasons, so here is where you guys could give me a hand justifying the message title: "When Traditional meets Informational".
I wouldn't outline flow tasks or specific UI elements to be evaluated. If only you could be so kind by going through the whole interface pointing out possible problems as you go along, it would mean a lot to me.
