    My site colors

    What color should my links be on my navigation? I can not decide if they should be dark or not.

    Also do you like the sidebar being semi transparent.

    I think the links in the pink header bit, is fine .
    I'm not too keen on the colour of the links at the very top, I'd go with a blue to go with the background just below it.

    How about for the tiny nav a bit darker purple/blue?

    I thought that the links on the main nav was a little hard to read.

    Yeah darker purple will look good!

    I just refreshed your site to see if you made any changes to the links, but it looks like the rounded corners side bar thing is all messed up.

    Left image on the side bar is not aligned correctly.

    Transparency effect is nice.
    Well I recommend a blue, probably guessed it's my fave colour
    Or you could try making the links the same colour as the "User" link.
    It's all about Trial and Error, try different colours, different hover styles, and just see what looks good.

    Edit: Tiny nav colours are good

    Right now the USER link is the current link. Lets say you are browing the forums, then the FORUM link would be the darker color (or whatever color I choose to be the current color).

    So for the main nav you want blue links or did I not get it?

    Yes, I meant the smaller text on the main nav, try changing the colour of the smaller links to the colour of the current link (which in this case in the user link).
    I'm only making suggestions, it's your site not mine, so it's about what you want.
