I've more or less finished the layout (except the right side) and posted some stuff up there. Hopefully it will make you laugh, if not well, I'll probably end up going down soon. >=P

I was also wondering if you know any amazing affiliation programs, or any great new way to promote my site, since I haven't really launched a website in well over a year.

Thanks tons!

Yeah I did it for 1024 so I could get more on the page.

Why alienate half the world? You could just make the text area size dynamic.


Nice look: check
offensive content: check

What more could I ask for?:D

That'll be more like 60+% of current surfers.

If you are going to design for a niche bracket of people (such as 1024x768 surfers), why not develop for a big niche, such as the 60+% who use 800x600.

Because according to my statistics over 70% of my users go 1024 O.o

Percents I say, percents! Instead of specifying a width in pixels, specify it as a percent. Your choice, of course, but that way you can avoid the horizontal scroller and such; so much more pleasant to view that way.

And hey, it's not getting any more on the page, just the same content with a less vertical scroll. :thumbsup:

That leaves 30% out in the cold. Don't hate. ;)

Haha makes sense man, makes sense. So how could I do that.....oh wait holy crap I forgot that black line isn't attached to my top image...so I CAN do percents, PERFECTLY!

I'll have to look into this, because the problem is the images I put in there. It takes up room and if it decreases in size or increases in size, then it could get seriously distorted.

Well that ad or whatever up to the right of the site logo pushes things over a bit. Delete or move that image and you should be in business. You could also scale down your images carefully, subtracting from the width and height evenly.

The ads are a major no no... but that is the way I prefer to go, advert and pop-up free. They are just annoying, and slow down the loading time taken for the page...
