    Eh, I think those both look really ugly. I think it's a gamer thing - you guys tend to go for black. Meanwhile the rest of the world says nay.

    Black, dark grey, and other very dark colors (dark blues) are a bit hard to see, and rather ugly (in general), in my opinion. A light grey on the other hand isn't bad.

    I don't mind black background too much, but GameDev just feels really cluttered in my opinion. I guess thats what you get when you try to cover pretty much every topic of game programming...

    check out the site now, I think you'll like one of the customizations that i made I'll be adding more as time goes by, maybe some people here would like to make some schemes for me?

    here's the colors you can set for each scheme:
    link
    visited
    active
    hover
    body color
    body background
    menu tops
    menu bottoms
    menu top text color
    menu bottom text color

    and each scheme gets it's own set of images for the menu bar at the top (there's 10 in total, 5 for each link w/out the mouse over 'em, 5 for each link with the mouse over 'em)

    Times New Roman font should be outlawed IMHO.

    What do you guys think of the new RaceAlerts layout?

    echo that on the font... I'm a Tahoma fan, myself.

    That layout looks good... although I don't know what it used to look like.

    If you go to any of the links at the top (except for home), it seems to send the server into an infinite loop.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Looks exactly like every other PHP page on the net. Thanks, PHPnuke!

    I usually just get a 404 error, thats because the pages haven't been built.

    Actually I didn't use PHPNuke, I wrote every aspect of that layout by my self and I have the source code to prove it bucko!:P

    Slightly more impressive then. Does look good, though.

    In my opinion I think a good color for the backround would be lightblue or a picture of a body of water in a bright sunny morning will look good with that design.
