    You should probably put a link to the site in your post, even though its in your sig as well.

    Design:
    - Your logo clashes with the design on the site
    - I love that design, glad to see that you got it
    - Seems like it need a little more contrast between the text color and the bg color

    Technical:
    - Plenty of validation errors
    - Lines 29-44 are all nested wrapper divs, a little bit of tag soup there . Hundreds of div tags are also littered throughout the code, although I know you got that template from a site. You have approximately 126 div tags, including end tags.
    - Not only do you have an extra couple of kilobytes in divs, the template uses nested tables as well.
    - The template also uses plenty of HTML that could be accomplished with a little CSS, ie center, font, etc.

    The headings look really odd...
    And I agree about the logo. It's simply clashing.

    What headings, and yes. I agree the logo clashes. I just have no idea how to design it

    Your design: I don't think it suits the Sims. I love the Sims - or at least I used to (now I love Mass Effect and NFS ProStreet =) ), but I just don't feel the Sims atmosphere in this design. I think you should try something else.

    Try using the colors green, silver and gold - the colors of the aspiration meter. (Though, now that I picture it - It may look odd). My point is -do something which is connected to the Sims. Right now, I feel that your design just doesn't reflect the Sims, and thats something you want if you are creating a fan site.


    To go off on a tangent;
    That design - did you do it all by yourself? I have to admit, it's actually very nice. You need to tell me how you did the background animation with the navigational links: JavaScript?

    Irrational numbers make no sense.

    The banner, which is coming soon is going to include sims stuff =] Maybe it will reflect the sims.

    1. No.
    2. Background animation: I made it, because it wasn't included in the pack, for some strange reason. :S

    Open a thread in the PHP forums, my guess is that what you put in the foreach isn't an array.

    Oh, ok, thanks


    EDIT: I don't like the "basic" look of the text.

    It's a nice site, but when I think of The Sims, and a Sims fansite, I would expect a Sims based design. Your site (Even though I think it's beautiful) has nothing to do with the Sims. If you want me to comment on the design, then I really like it, although the logo could do with being changed, something about it looks wrong. Maybe incorporate some Sims pictures or something?
