    erm, not my style. one of the many "too busy/vivd" theme based pages. Nice layout, but there are too many bulky graphics and stuff. my philosophy when it comes to web design is think simple/minimally, focus on content rather than cool layouts.

    **edit: not to say your page has no content; that was just my phil in general

    Well, your site looks ok now.

    Just the "home" bar at the top is still strangely stretched.

    I think you website is pretty good. I mean, you're not a professional or anything(i'm assuming), so it's good.

    The only thing I would change is the title bar. I don't mean to be picky, but I have seen that font everywhere, it is from those title-rendering places like cooltext.com.

    Try a different title render, in different colour schemes here are a few (these are lso from a cheap site, but I think it is an improvment):

    Again, keep it simple. Make your logo something eye-catching, but above all clear & readable. Fancy isn't worth a darn if nobody can read it - going overboard makes it look to cluttered and busy. Like maddox said:

    Try using www.cooltext.com, it's a pretty decent engine. I made these in less than about 3-4 minutes:

    Not saying they're great, just trying to illustrate (no pun intended) my point.

    I like the new one much better. The only things I'd suggest are a title bar that is anti-aliased(or you may as well use txt), and don't use a blue, shady titlely thing for every news item, it dilutes its effect.

    Glad to see everyone likes my new theme. Lighter colors, blue title. BTW i made the arcane disciples words using PHOTOSHOP lol... really good at it huh? =P

    I would have used the pen thing, but i cant figure out how to use it, but its really cool how it works. I am going to attempt to get more people to go there and register, but its not so easy with it changing IP all the time. Luckily all i have to do is to go to hopto.org and update what my ip address is. I am writing this with my eyes closed at full speed just to see how fast i can type without looking lol... so easy now after 11 years.

    Ah, so everyone is welcome to go sign up and talk around in the forums. I will make a forums special for SCIFORUMS people who want to go chat between friends and family =D

    Everyone is welcome to join!

    Just as a question:

    Is it me or does the site, forums etc. build up pretty slow?
    I mean, the new design and all is quite good caffeine, I even registered

    But it all builds up soooo slowly. Is it temporarly or do I have to take these long loading times into account all the time?

    I've just realised how disgusting my colour scheme sounds; White, Light Pink and Green. *sigh* Such a female... but I refuse to call it pink. It's LIGHT red.

    (end of ramble)

    It looks pretty good. I don't like PHP-Nuke though, you should try a better package, XOOPS is pretty nice.
