Review my site?

Well as a newbie I have been doing some work on my site and would like some feedback. I am sure there is more room for improvement and your suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

very nice job, i like it. Nice logo and color scheme .

however, there are 3 things that i would change:
  1. replace the status icons with custom ones.
  2. put a border around username and password in toplinks.
  3. fix the sidbar title.

Leave everything else as it is.

p.s. post a link to your site so people can find it.

Thanks for the feedback. which sidebar title were you speaking of?

I have been looking for some new icons that would match my style to avoid having to make them myself, but no luck so far.

I will mod the border today

I thought the link would be obvious from the signature picture

Thanks again!

This is how I am seeing your site main news page (pic 1) so I would say it is not aligning correctly. The forum side your follow me text seem to be off a bit (pic 2)

Strange, the main news page is showing correctly to me.

On the forum sidebar , the title of the widget is a bit off (see pic2 in previous post).

Yeah I am not sure how to align the widget header on that. Any ideas or info would be greatly appreciated.

I'm looking at your site right now.

the side bar is fixed.

The background from toplinks is gone and toplinks are to low.

Do you remember the color that you used?

i forgot about the background, thas was my fault. Nice it is fixed now.

while looking at your site there 2 more things i noticed.

in profile the about me section header text is quit dark and in view site leaders the name is invisible.

to fix add following code in additional css:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Not that i want to be a pain in the butt, but i was looking at your site anyway i noticed it.
