I reserve my judgement on the fact that you are color blind. But.
I was not referring to color at all. I could have been barbie pink for all I care, I was referring to simplistic boxed design/construction elements of the site. The layout is fine I guess, but it looks like a web site from 1999 era.

I may seem harsh but that's just because I have a trained eye in such matters as a designer.

And I DO respect your effort to make this site for us. Its great.

The design as it is is fine. Simple sites load quicker and when we all rush to read it as the sky falls down we will be glad of that... :lol:

Just never. Never.! put adverts on it.. :flop:

May I ask with what software are you making your site?
Looks like Microsoft FrontPage heheh.

Which one is best is open to debate. I am partial to the Dreamwever myself.

But if you lack skill in that department I had a joy exploring what Artisteer can do. Give it a try, you will be amazed how easy it is to make something useable with it. Trial software is available. :flop:

Thanks, oto.

elnorel, what do you think now? I spent all day not watching football and instead doing css coding.
I tried to make it look modern, yet rugged. like me.

Thumbs up man.

Just decrease the distance between elements a bit, so they are not all the same distance, I mean group the thread ones half way together so you know they belong together. If you know what I mean.

Much more eye pleasing design than before, but still lacking coherence.
Elements are spaced too far apart and some fonts are too large.

I'm sure you see what I mean. ;D

Some element resizing is in order, or at last font size adjustment.

Here uploaded a picture on what I mean.
Its too large to display here due to forum limitations.

Hope its not too much. But those things are the only un-redeeming quality of the site. :D
