    Review Request =]

    Hey, I was told by "Moodle" that this forum does site reviews! So I was wondering If My site could be reviewed.

    Basically want to hear what you think of my sites design, coding and ease of use.
    I built the whole structure of the site myself, I don't use any open source software like joomla or php fusion. I don't even use Cutenews, its all done by HTML / CSS.

    the url is

    Thanks. Jamie

    :P

    Design:-
    I like the dark colours. It's very pleasing to the eye.
    I also like the transparency on the navigation. However, the hover effects on the navigation do not fit the theme.

    Good job, Jamie!

    Good graphics. I'm not sure I like the white background in the content area. It kind of seems out of place. I like the transparency effects. One thing I didn't like was that your menu doesn't work with javascript disabled and it should.

    The counter for the simmers online thing looks out of place.

    I think he means it reads a little odd, seeing as it's a verb used in cooking.

    The white content background DOES look a little out of place, too. I messed about with it: changed #shcontent to 1px width and a background of #000, and #content to a background of #555. It looks better, try it out.

    Also consider:
    - adding a hover color for links
    - taking off the blue border of links
    - show an 'active' state for your dropdowns.
    - provide backup fonts for 'Tahoma', even if it's just the generic 'sans-serif'.

    FWIW, (Iam no expert designer), I agree both with Aero and CyanLight.

    I think the number of visitors (or is it number of simmers online); one of them is missing a number and the number you have displayed shouldn't have such a blue border and it should be positioned elsewhere. apart from that, anything else I could see was already mentioned.

    First impression:
    Very nice looking site. Nice effects overall, very few criticisms. Great job.

    Design:
    The backround of the boxes goes past the rounded corners.

    Technical:
    - Doesn't validate
    - Tables for layout
