Nice...I especially like the broken glass banner. A couple of changes would be nice, though. Change the menu and body text font to Verdana or Arial instead of Times New Roman and change the font size to 8 px. Add some filters and rollover effects to the menu items as well. And the images that have the purple overlay could cgange to red or green or orange, even. But aside from all those, I really the content and layout setup; very simple but easy to navigate.

I like the clean look. But I'm confused. Are you doing this site so the search engines find you, or is it more for fun?

From a search engine point of view, you have no:

robots.txt
no keyword metatag
no author metatag
no description!

hi there


a few things from my perspective.

Is it finished yet? I tried going into the pages and got 404 errors...

Desgn:

I found the layout a little bit unorganized. I would maybe change the color of your logo to a dark color and put it in the header image.. this will move the whole page up and get rid of a lot of negative space.

The menu could be moved a little closer to the left side of the page and if you do what I suggested above it will drop it below the header.

The red "posted by" text is extremely hard to read... try changing the color and font size maybe

Coding:

I have noticed you have used a lot of depreciated attributes in your code....For example:
Code: [ Select ]
bottommargin="0" leftmargin="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0"


This can be done with CSS.


Also there are lots of closed tages which aren't open ....make sure all yout table data tags are marked up correctly


just a few things to make you wanna kill me...but the coding ones are pretty important

well thats my 2c worth hope it helps a bit

cheers
Warren

The email link, (blue on dark gray) is not very easy to read, in fact, I can't read it. lol. I agree with the previous poster, I would move away from using Times New Roman and use Arial or Verdana. Apart from that, there is not much content to comment on.

Cheers

Jepps,
My issue with the site is the how the color clashes with each other. Dark blue hyperlinks and purple just don't go together. Not to mention, the frontpage looks very sparse.

You don't need those - they will do nothing to help your SEO

Next, the BG image repeats on my screen (1280x1024)
