I just created this site for tutorials, it allows you to easily find tutorials for a variety of different applications. The best tutorials are ranked higher than new or worse tutorials.

Any feedback would be great.

I don't know about looking like a blog - personally, I think it looks a bit too much like digg.com.

so are you saying yahoo looks like google or google looks like yahoo? Since they both have white background and blue links and both are a search engine.

This idea was inspired by digg, I have always had trouble finding tutorials for what I wanted, and I felt by having all of these tutorials in one location I could help everybody out, on top of seeing what kind of cool things I can do that I may have missed.

I didn't mean that the idea was like digg - that part I liked - I meant the colours, layout, and logo font match digg's almost exactly.

I would suggest you change the colors and the general layout so you dont look like digg to much, then I might comment on the rest of the site. Cant really do much else when its almost an exact copy. Its like trying to review the design of the defualt theme for phpbb.

The W3C Validator found 46 errors on your "home" page ... you can see them here ... please then also make sure the other pages validate ...

I didn't read your description in your first post, and when I arrived at your site I didn't really know what was going on at first, maybe add a description to the top for first time users to understand what it is about ...

I revisited the site and I notice the changes done to the colors. I don't think it looks like digg anymore. If people still think that site looks like digg than they probably think 90% of other sites looks like each other or just looking for something to bash about.

I agree with righteous_trespasser that there needs to be a section that describe to visitors on how the site works.

I took a look at the new colours, and must admit I like it a lot better. It retains the digg-like feel without looking like a perfect copy. The green is very nice.

However, you may want to clean up your code - the W3C validator shows something like 84 errors.

The look and feel is very nice though.

You should work on design. And it is little robust. Organize it better.

To be honest try a verdana style text, or arrange it so it does not look like a kind of blog style. Mabye its just me being to fussy.
