Site was a little slow to load and I recommend that you say something on the main page what the site is all about.

The site itself has interesting eye candy. I can't help but notice, however, that the woman in the middle is...well, unecessary. I mean, unless its your significant other or something, it really has no purpose as it's just there and taking up space.

Other than that, its not bad at all. I like the color scheme and the interface itself is simple - which is great.

slow loading time but the banner is impressive!

I think expanding your menu of links might be benificial, the more content the better

In the menu at the top of the page (the one with the image rollovers), when you hover over the link the image seems to move slightly to the left, if this was intended then ok but i just thought i better point it out incase it is a mistake, but otherwise great.

I like the look of the site.

2 Minor things:

1. The white box with news etc in it: I is so solid compared to the other elements on the site that it seems out of place. Maybe change it's colour to a really light blue background..just barely perceptable.

2. The Nav bar is cool but I find the grey line through the grey text hard on the eyes.

Other than that it's fab!

Nice work
Dave

I like the splash page a lot. Couple things: the login at the top...seems like it's taking up way too much space. Maybe it would fit in better if it was under the header or something? Also I'm not real big on that font used for "Latest"...reminds me of Iron Maiden. The flash in the tutorials section looks really nice, but took a long time to load and I'm on 3Mb cable. I like the site. It really does look nice, just a couple minor things really.

I agree with the others that don't like the login box at the top. WAY TOO big.
I don't have a problem with the "Latest" font, in fact, I think it fits well with the site, though as an old school Maiden fan, it seems "used"

The other things I don't like:
Your news column has these REALLY nice curves on the right side, but the effect is lost because of the square backgrounds around the individual news items. Perhaps you could break them up some other way, maybe put some kind of bar graphic between news items and let them keep the regular background of the column?

The Shoutbox reloading. That is ANNOYING AS HELL in IE, and puts unneeded load on your server. I figure, if the user wants to see new shoutbox posts, let them refresh.

Other than that, I really like the design of the site. It's visually appealing, but not to active to be distracting.

For the guy who said they have 3mb cable. dude i feel sry for u. I'm on a crappy broadband connection and the first time it loaded it took like a min or so and now that's it's cache it takes seconds.
Thanks for comments. More are always welcome
