Nice looking site! I like the colours and layout etc. Only problem I can see at first glance is the menu is slightly confusing. Could you space the menus out or categorise them a bit?

You've got a good layout and some nice graphics, but there are a lot of them, which slows down your load time. I would suggest a "0" border on your tables unless they need to have a border and change the page title to "Habbo Heaven". Prehaps use the homepage to give a summary of the game for guys like me who've never played. Overall the site is great design, now tell me something! ;)

Frames suck. I dont know whats up with your source code, but it all seems to be hidden from view, which means your search engines wont have fun viewing your site either. When your site loaded up I noticed some .bmp images being loaded, get rid of any/all .bmp images you're using on your site. They are the worst image filetype you could possibly use on a website. On your index page, the text color is white?? (i.e. hidden from view). Same thing for the rest of your site now that I browsed through it. How do you expect people to view anything on your site? The site layout is pretty good but my overall impression of the site is that its pretty amature.

The white text is fine. I think it looks pretty good actually. I don't understand how you say its (i.e hidden from view) just because its white. The background brings the white out and makes it look good. The navi menu could use some work. I think the site is pretty good though. I agree with daremedy about using .bmp's. You really should avoid them at all cost. But I must add the banner is freaking sweet! Love the old school snes graphics on it.

LOL, i think that daremedy was viewing it via IE not firefox.

In IE the background stays white aswell so you cant see the white text ^^

Since we cant view your code, you'll never know. I'd suggest you post your code in the Web Design forum and have people take a look at it.

Well I can see only this at any browser......I used IE, Fire FOX, Opera..all are same result..white texts in white BG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After a long time FF shown the blue BG!!!

Opera Image IE Image FF Image

And the loading time is more than a minitue @256kbps!!!!!!!!

Optimize your site first and after then let it review here..cause maximum people will not review your site..because of loading time.

Maybe change the image suffix from whatever you are using to a more conserving suffix might help.

To cut load times, you images need to be of a lower size, i would recommend using JPEGs.

grant, that's all dependent on the software you use to save as *format*. The Photoshop CS/ImageReady duo can put out some extremely high quality gif's for almost all your needs.
