    The Good
    Minimalist and polished. I like the green, but it will not be for everyone. Simple navigation. Your HTML validates.

    The Bad
    Black text on olive green background doesn't have stellar contrast; anyone with color blindness will have difficulties with the combination. The site seems to be lacking a purpose. It's stated that the site is "a connection for computer oriented youth". A connection to what?

    It goes on to state: " anyone who can do anything is welcome at roundsquare." That's pretty general and I still don't see a purpose for the site or a reason for me to be there.

    The Resources link takes me to and external site with no prior knowledge. That's a bad idea. Take me to a page of links and let me choose to leave your site, don't force me away.

    Index should be changed to home. Most people don't realize that index = home.

    Your navigation bar doesn't display properly in Safari. Check it out at iCapture.

    That might be a mac thing, check out this screenshot in Firefox.

    Also, the followed link is the same as the "you're on this page" indicator. Which is confusing (you'll see that in the screenshot too).

    Aside from that I will agree 100% with everything jameskeeler said. His comments are on the money.

    I have an eye for detail like you'd never believe.

    for those of you who do not know what this site is for ...
    That would be just about everyone

    for those of you who do know what this site is for ...
    That would be just about no one.

    My point is you'll want to make some descriptive intro text. It's the point of a home page. Tell me why I'm there.

    Also, no content = no members. Don't be misled by the notion that gaining new members = gaining new content. It just doesn't work that way. People don't usually go to web sites to give, they go to get. So give us something.

    Thank you for your advice everyone.

    I've started a new layout, and now have some guidance for what the content should include.
