hey

Get rid of that tiling background!!! lol not only is it disturbing but my eyes are seeing tracers now. If you still decide to pick a tiling background pick one that at least matches the rest of your site in terms of colours and design. The background used on the news page isn't bad, I'd still stay away from tiling backgrounds but at least it's easier on my eyes :)

Why are you using that annoying mouse script??

Try putting the counter near the bottom rather than at the top. Do you really want people to see the counter as the first item instead of the more important content?

Make your top navbar items a bit bigger, I almost missed them

On the subject of font size, why are the font sizes changing throughout the page? Try to keep it consisting Pick one font size for content and stick with it. Excluding titles and such of course.

Get rid of the borders on some of your images.

Cool photos 8)

Hope this helps

Well...there is some potential there, I would say.
Firstly, I personally don't like the harsh background very much. Too strong for my taste.
Your logo on the top bar could use a transparent background. It looks bad with the black around it.
Many people hate these mouse following things (me,too)
The blue logo-thing is very prominent in the articles. I'd make it a bit lighter or transparent...also in the longer article it hangs there in the middle of the table. Put it on top.
That was it for starters :-)
Hope that was what you were looking for.
Just change a few of these visual things and it will please the eye.
It's pretty nice already.
Greetings from Germany

Much better now! Maybe you could freshen up the long text passages with some small pictures or so...
It's a little disencouraging to see so much text to read.
But ...I guess people who are interested will read it anyways.
Good job :-)

OMG what an improvement!!! :D

May I suggest using bold (<strong> tags) instead of underlines? The u element was deprecated in HTML 4.01. Also <u> element is not supported in XHTML 1.0 Strict DTD. (A deprecated element or attribute is one that has been outdated. They may become obsolete in the future, but browsers should continue to support deprecated elements for backward compatibility.)

I prefer to not use them as it may confuse a viewer with a hyperlink. I know I moused over your titles to check if they were links :oops:

I still think you should change the font on some pages to make it all the same font size. You want to keep your site consistent.

Try to get away from the Free hosting like cjb.net there are many hosting companies that are fairly cheap. Other then that the site looks good.
