    NEW CSS Design

    I guess you are talking about the main page. If I may I would like to suggest certain things. I think that the banner is too big, the width is good, however the height is too excessive. Navigation bar is pretty good however try to add more padding to the texts, if you are using dreamweaver is simple to edit it, just add a new rule to the text. it should come aprox like this; a {padding: n; } ofcourse there is the padding left right, just add one else you will have a huge space in between. I am not sure what you are using to divide the page but i suggest you use they are my gods easy to use and easy to change with css just remember to give them an id such as oh and one last thing, because i feel like i am saying too much - when i have a website that involves a forum or a blog, i usually assign a frame to a div so that on the main page people can have a sneak peek on to what is going on in the forum. but as i said, just a thought. I hope that i didnt intrude on your work, but its a great site

    Old days!!

    well I haven't seen anyone other than us around, Francis is around but he has two kids now - i don't think he has the time to be able to come here and discuss. Oh and we should not forget Edd - i see him around on xfire when i log in sometimes, but i dont think we want him around. To be totally honest I forgot who was with us in the clan. Other than the close ones. but oh well we will see what we can do. If we cant bring the old clan back, we can get a new one i know we can do it!!

    Old days!!

    I cannot not talk about the old days, they were great!! We used to be a great team and we used to have a great big family (starts to sing barney's song!!!) LOL!! I can remember when we had our clan the forum was packed up with discussions and issues and god knows what. I know this isn't a clan forum but without those great days we wouldn't probably be here. So tell me guys - what do you miss most from those days. PS Kyle - I know what you are thinking right now lol

    my first button lol

    haha no problem you have no idea how much i got to say those words everyday!! Today I had an issue regarding the use of bright colors on a business website (insurance company) to be exact. Had to do it all from scratch - if you want the job done right you got to do it yourself right.

    design

    its really good, great job. As kyle said, I would change the text. If not the actual font, I would change the color and give it a little bit of style.

    my first button lol

    The design is pretty good for a beginner. What I would do if what Kyle said hasn't worked is, try to blur it a bit, just use the blur box so you can actually adjust to what you want, that should soften up the edges much and blur those cutting edges on the right-bottom. (blur the design not the text as well) The text is great - simple and just the right size. Color wise - try to stick with 1-2 colors,I can see you used the gradient tool for your last one, so you got white, blue and a shadow of grey. I would suggest to keep the button blue. General note - businesses nowadays want simple and easy to navigate site with few things to distract the audience from the real importance of the site. therefore navigation bars are made simpler; just a side bar or a horizontal one like Kyle's. They are sticking to simple not hard on the eyes and most of all clean. What you have created is really good don't get me wrong but from experience; businesses are nowadays looking for a more simple site, good color scheme to relate to their work and most of all the cleanliness of the site. I hope I didn't hurt your feelings but it's kinda my job to give opinions like this. Keep up the good work, if you can do what I know you can, you will be good at these too.

    Hi everyone!!

    Well my name is Gabriella, I'm 20 years old, I live far away in Malta (if you know where it is good for you, if you don't google it) This takes me back to about 3-4 years i guess!! I currently work as an art director for an advertising agency so my work entitles the designing of adverts, posters and websites but back in the days I used to design for my own pleasure. Maybe this will be a boost up to start back on track, I will post any designs that I can, I promise you that. To finish off, I would like to thank Kyle for recreating this website, brings back lots of memories.
