    Post Need comments on site layout

    I'll keep it simple; today I've made a layout for a portal page for my friend's soon to be game server. All he needs is a "game server" kind of page if you know what I mean. I finished what I was going to give to him as a layout and so I just want to know if it looks right.

    Give me comments on how it looks, what I should do to improve it.

    (and don't bother telling me it's thin; it's only to serve as a portal to the stats, and post server news, he may decide to expand later)

    Looks very good, but why the mix of WW2 and gladiators?

    Use web-safe colors. I can see the difference between the border images and the actual background.

    colors do need slight tweaking....but it's not bad, better than green on purple

    I do like how the first thing to load is the links, that's the most important thing, all the pics are just fluff, extra stuff to throw in later. All in all i'd say you did a good job.

    On the news link, include the (updated) in the link, it's easier for the user to click it with a larger target for the mouse.

    LOL, I'm sorry Klinerr, I still laugh when I read your posts; your spelling entertains me!

    ... and that's a good idea with the colors; it only looks right in 32-bit color mode right now I'll try and make it look right in 16/32-bit modes (screw 8-bit color!)
