That's not bad at all, a nice easily laid out look & feel, links are easy to read and find quickly...

I'm not so sure about using an iFrame for the news though - I can understand WHY, and if aesthetics is your primary concern and you're not bothered about search engines indexing that content then cool, otherwise I think you'd be better trying to actually incorporate it as part of the main page..

Maybe have your most recent story title, then 3 or 4 lines of "preview" content with a link to a page to read the whole thing, then just links below that to the next 4 most recent news items.. That could work pretty well, and still fit in your box (even if you have to write a function to cut super-long news titles).

I see you're using iframes for the main body content in some of your other pages too (chat, registration, etc.) but again you will probably want to think about actually incorporating the content as part of the main page, rather than loading it in a frame for search-engine-happiness.

But I love the look n' feel, nice and simple, easy to navigate, good work :)

hey :)

im glad you liked the site, thank you for comments

yeah, ive been thinking about search engines myself, and thank you for advice, tho i should tell that news iframe was made on purpose, i didnt want news to be on the main page or be listed at all whatsoever, so they are in 'Disallow: /' now, as well as the poll and statistic and guestbook, the chat iframe is the only way i could do it, it is hosted on another server

i should redo channel registration page i guess, i abused iframes :/ but then, i dont want it to be listed

thank you guys!
