Just wondering... do you really think it's worth it to buy a domain name for my website? Or just leave it as it is?

Yes, but it's a warning. If you don't have your settings like that, how will they know? I'm gonna put a picture there as well soon.

For the flash header, you could maybe lower the Alpha of the moving parts. To make them blen in better. It looks a little rough as it is.

An example is how I've lowered the opacity or the moving parts in the header on the clan site I'm working on (http://www.elc.captainisakiller.co.uk/).

I like your header. The parts you've added in Flash look good, I just think they could do with a little touching up ;).

Nice clan site. That is very attractive, and even though it is going to be used mainly for your clan, it will still gain attention by other people. :)

Thank you, but for some strange reason, I seem to get the feeling it's sometimes a bit cramped up in little spaces. Does anyone else think so too?

well, I had a lok and thought the site had a good design but have a link in firefox and it looks horrible, maybe optimize the site a bit more for mozilla firefox. text: the text in the logo should be changed to something that people can read just a tad easier, I had a look and noticed that there is only one mention of counterstrike and that is in the logo and that's blurred.

Forum: for your forum make the default skin something a bit more apropriate for counterstrike and also change the banner. You might have to search for skins because i don't remember where i used to get mine.

The text on some pages was cramped and i also don't like the site must be viewed in 1024 x 768

Problem is, I'm using Invisionfree.com and it's an Invision Board, and that's a bit of a problem. Invision Free don't seem to let you change the skin very easily without going into the raw code and changing each value manually, and believe me, it would take days.

Ok. This was brought to my attention earlier by ad0beaddict. Like I said before though: "It's a warning. If you don't have your settings like that, how will they know?" It also looks a bit horrible in other resoloution settings.

Ah... the ol' Firefox Compatibility comment. I've had lots of those. Ok, my problem is that:
1. I don't have Firefox (I'm thinking of getting it though)
2. I don't know how to embed the code so it works on both, without ruining any of them.
3. I've gotten too far into the website to change every single page. That may take days....

Thanks for the comments, and critism so far. Keep them coming :D

Perhaps go for phpBB instead.

Well, I don't know If I want to do that. PHPBB is free, yet it doesn't have as good and as many functions as Invision. And PHPBB would require me to setup ANOTHER database/table for it. It's just too much work for that...

The skin looks good.

Maybe you could edit the code of the forum, and add your header into it. If it's anything like phpBB, then the header of the page will be stored in a seperate file.

And the site might look cool with the background the forum has.

I'll think about that one, but It'll be a whole lot more work to adapt it to the website scheme and theme.

All I can say is possibly add a banner to the actual home page and the forums, maybe something pretaining to the most recent games etc., livin' it up alil bit. Just a suggestion, as I look through a bunch of gaming sites , just seems very plain to me, doesnt grab me as a gaming site.

well i aint much of a player at that game but i do enjoy a lot of others,but mostly i play car/driving related games...

Actually i got a tip when it comes to changing colours so that it wont maybe be all that white..and that is,,, i my self on my homepage got me a color block that is inserted on my page with a simple html paste from a site where i got the code.....this colorblock alows ure visitors to change whatewr page you got, into the colour they them selves want, bu just howering over a board and locking the colour they decide...and i think its a great tool if u think its worth the space it recuires and the function u get by it...... but i do not want to do anything wrong in this forum cause im all new here,so when i have revieved a couple of more sites so that im aligable to put my own fresh site up for a review,, i hope i can help u with it if you want,, by wisiting me at the page i will have up for review ...So if its something u want to check out.... check this forum for the site under my alias, POKERSPIDER......
im a newbie in the webcreation but i like your site,good design, and it gave me an impression of a "dedicated" owner that loves the game he love:)

The word clan may not apeal to some viewers. Maybe try and Hype another word, not saying change it. But maybe another word in the title could be emphasized.
