    Slow server? Took like 30 seconds to load the intro page (and I've got cable, so it's not me). Didn't go beyond that, didn't have the patience.

    No it's not that. A picture that size shouldn't take for than a sec to load. Your server must be overly packed or just slow.

    its an okay design

    the right border down that middle box isnt big enough so you get it repeating every now and again... which goes behind the white text making it impossible to read.

    the images down the right hand side fade in far too slowly.. i like to know what ive got my mouse over after at least half a second...

    all of them dashes go on for more than a line too, and watch out for typos.

    from a coding point of view:
    - no doctype declaration
    - you need to end the <script src="head.js">

    sorry this post seems so negative...

    other than all that: its a good design

    perhaps use a method to compact some of that news.

    slow loading.... DSL took about 7 seconds so on dialup i can only imagine..... good website tho

    if it will be changed why do you care about critiques?

    Hmmm...

    On 800x600, your content almost disppears beneath the fold (the bottom window edge, in this case) due to the large graphic, and your links are barely legible because of very low contrast. The graphics don't do much for me either, or am i missing points here; are those shapes supposed to represent something?
    Anyway, i'd suggest cutting back on the piccies to make some room for actual content.
    Regards,

    Ugh. I totally don't understand the appeal to DragonBall Z. To each his own I suppose.

    Site looks nice, but like others have said, seemed a bit slow loading...

    im with you beetle.

    i see youve changed your website now Platinum
    nice graphics, you are good
    the "affliliates" ect. buttons that fade in and out are hard to see from the get go. it is a cool effect, but i almost cant tell there are buttons there in the first place ( or images whatever )

    went to see your "changed" design... just got an error 500...

    the contents not to my liking either... which is why you'll notice i was very careful in my last post only to talk about "design"......

    well, like they're all saying, extreeeeeemely slow loading.
    i really like the graphics, tho. really cool. otherwise u cud spruce it up a bit more, it's nothing but white text and blue background (or do u call that turquoise?? maybe i'm color blind. okay, #004080). maybe u cud change the navbar, at least change the links color to yellow or something maybe. just a thought

    I gave up after leaving it to load for about 60 secs. Still didn't get anything to load up apart from a blue background
