    Well with the suggestions of members here, completely revamped my site. It still needs much refinement, but it's well on it's way........I think.

    Ok first things first, i go on to your site and the first thing that turns me away is the music, thats gone so great ill stay a bit longer, but hold on except for your photos there are no graphics, it looks like a word document not a webpage.

    Now what i suggest you do is use and image editing program (if you dont have one download GIMP from http://www.gimp.org/) and start learning how to create logos, navigation, etc. All this stuff will spruce up your site and stop it being a word doc.

    Also think about usability, when you visit a website where do you expect the navigation to be? Usually left hand side? Possibly horizontally at the top like this page? You may have noticed a lot of sites have thier nav in these positions, thats because thats where you expect it to be. On your site i have to scroll down to the bottom of the page to find your nav. Nav should be clear, easily visible and in the same place on every page.

    Ok theres some stuff to be going on with, i hope you dont take my comments the wrong way, i dont mean to be harsh about your work im just trying to help. Post back as you go along and you'll get more comments/ideas from these guys.

    I can't read the text on those buttons. Bad color combination. Also, try to shrink down the height of that top information: graphic, welcome message, etc. It pushes your content way down the page. Try looking at your site in different browsers, and at different resolutions. This is what I first see in FireFox, at 800x600 w/o scrolling. Not a very efficient use of space.

    Oooh good point on the sizing thing. I was also afraid of the color of the buttons, and will be working on that too.
    Thanks,
    Rick
