The site is based on phpBB, still in the process of modifying it. Just want some general feedback, what you think is good/bad, how I can improve it, etc. Thanks!

Alrighty I'll take this one from the bottom up to make it more interesting (not the site, the review! :-P).

The scrolling marquee needs should possible have a different background color, since there isn't any big white blocks like that anywhere else. The links need to follow the scheme aswell!

The color scheme is looking good. I like what you did with the main table having the 3D effect, works great!

Finally the image of the spork is a bit fuzzy...

The marquee is an iframe, the source is from planet source code (http://www.planetsourcecode.com) and ive been having trouble with that.

hmmm... the spork doesnt look too bad to me... prehaps ill use a PNG for better quality.

thanks.

im all for minimal design, however i would add just a bit more color. maybe get rid of the blueish hue and make it orange and dark grey.

thanks for the comments everyone, i appreciate it.
