Nice layout, a bit cluttered, and very... blue. Throw a bit of a contrasting color in there to liven things up. Also, proofread your texts, or have someone else do it: there's a number of typos in there and that looks kinda sloppy. Give text blocks a little more room, it's easier to the eye to read.
Oh, nearly forgot: your logo and top navigation buttons are hard to read: a bit more contrast won't hurt.

I'd use more colours than blue and white. I'd also cut the amount of news posts shown on the index page, maybe 6 or so per page?

To help shorten the size of the page, I'd also put the search area on the left menu bar

For the random quote, use stripslashes ;) It\'ll stop all the slashes showing and ppl that aren\'t coders wouldn\'t understand what the slashes are for :p

Yep, that helps; it gives more of a grouped feeling. Really like the slightly lighter blue streak across the link headers, by the way: subtle and effective. Very nice touch!
Try some similar spacing in the text blocks in the "News" section: slightly free up the text from the header and footer of each news item. This doesn't have to be a whole line hight, with CSS you can control it on a pixel level. 2-4 pixels already can make a big difference.
Remember clutter is a subjective impression; there can be a lot on a page and still not feel cluttered if you apply tricks like the one above.

try making the text regular (ie: not bold!) and see if that helps it "breathe" abit more... :thumbsup:

Top: Site name & logo not very clear, as the main menu

Text: Excessive contrast (white ovr blue) & little fonts are difficult to read (produce fatigue). Red text over blue blackground... yeeek. For menus and sections you use a not very readable font

Bottom text not softened, difficult to read

Overcrowded.

its not enough to just have it in there, you should adhere to its standards as well :D

and by the way, it goes above the <html> not the <title>,
also DOCTYPE (needs to be in caps)

Like most people, I find it pretty cluttered...


The title image seems pixelated, and unclear.


It has a lot of potential though.
