The first thing that comes to mind is your flash file is way to huge. It's over 6.5 MB and takes forever to load. In fact, I didn't think it was going to load and reviewed your code to make sure it was right. Finally it loaded. If I wan't reviewing your site and just passing by, I would have moved on believing the site was messed up.

As mentioned, the flash intro is way too big in file size.

The text on the site itself needs to be left-aligned, not centered as it makes it look very amateur as centered text.

The site does not have a title.

An awful lot of blue existing throughout the site - perhaps some white or a complementary orange or grey somewhere within the site wouldn't hurt...

I have to agree with Darek about there being too much blue... some extra colour in there would really help break the site up a bit. ...what about having a white background (so that the two "side panels" on a 1280x1024 monitor) were white? The main body of the site could still be blue then, but the white would help reduce the amount of blue...

Good looking site though - I especially like the logo and the "graphitti-style" DYKG text.

I like the look and feel of the site. The blue goes really good and the banner is really nice. You don\'t have enough stuff on your site to keep a steady amount of visitors coming to your site. Start thinking of ideas to grow. overall 8 of 10

I think you should take out the intro thing with ur flash.

I hate websites with that it just bugs me.

other then that your site has too much blue mix the colors around have about 3 main colors to use everywhere that match.

ok, first of all props on the design, looks great, but lacks in some parts.. text really shouldn't be centered so i'd change that if i were you.. i think ur navigation looks good but some of em when u roll over them they pop up another nav thing, i think defenitly the font there should be changed cuz it looks bad.. and really other than that.. maybe make it when u roll off of the pop up links it disappears right away cuz it's kind of annoying waiting for it to disappear.. first time i thought the site didn't work right for a sec.. and really other than that good job.. looking forward for the final version.

Yes way better. Took only 5 seconds to load on mine. Love the music!

I don't know why people are critisising the intro. I think it's great. I like the logo with the eye and the pics. Maybe put a rollover effect on those buttons at the top.

Unfortunately, I'm gonna have to agree. At the moment, the Homepage is rather dull and needs something to spice it up. Other than that, I think I pretty much summed up what everyone else said.

Well done and keep up the good work! :)

//Edit: Since a lot of people agree that the blue is a bit much, I think that you should really think about adding another colour...

The Intro is there because the site is aimed at youth and it has a great feel to it, If you don't like the Intro or can't be bothered viewing it you just click on the "Skip Intro" button.

I need some help with the nav bar, at the moment it is takeing ages to add a new page haveing to change the script on every page, it takes ages. How can i have it so that there is only one file that i have to change and dose it for all the pages?

Any ideas on what color to add and where?


Funny_Fuzz glad you like the music :D

Thanks guys really apresiate this.
