    The layout is very .. but then again, you already knew that didn't you

    Looking at the html ... well ... I'm a bit disapponted.

    Table layout!?!?

    And what's up with this?
    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <title>FloodTheClub.com</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <title>FloodTheClub.com</title>
    <link href="css/floodtheclub2006.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="js/flashobject.js"></script>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    2 html, 2 head, 2 title, 2 body!?!?

    You have no DOCTYPE in there and a bunch of empty <p></p> and <td></td>

    You are already using CSS but not to it's full extent... for presentation (layouts)

    The site seems a little graphics-heavy -- long load times may discourage some users. It really doesn't matter if they're on high-bandwidth connections, either. If anything, h-b users have even less tolerance for download lag of any length whatsoever.

    Might want to go over the site with an eye toward usability.

    a good website is like a light show...

    yours is like getting hit in the face with 20 fireworks!!

    Very busy, very bright, very Graphics heavy!

    karinne hit the nail right on the head when she posted her response! your code...WTF!?!?

    My suggestions.

    Go and visit some CSS sites and look what is possible, you'll understand why CSS layout is the way forward.
    No ma'am, we in IT don't have a sense of humor we're aware of.

    As soon as the site loaded I was afraid my IP address was going to be logged on our content filters for looking at porn... But then, you are promoting night clubs which are supermarkets for sex.

    Down to the review... Too much animation. I actually like some of the things you are doing--I like the mouse overs for the menu, it's very unique--but some of the animation is for animation's sake. For example, is the really a need to have the main logo (Flood the Club.com) animated? I could also do without the animated slideshow in the content. I would like to see a non-intrusive fade between ads at the top. The current animation for the ads is a little harsh.

    As much as I like the mouse-overs, they are a bit tight-ropish. If you're not over a tiny little piece of real estate, the image disappears. This wouldn't be a problem if I wasn't concentrating on the gorgeous popup image, but as it is, it's too easy to bump the mouse and move off the button.

    karinne,
    Haha yeah, the site got pushed live before it was ready because the client didn't want to wait. There's a couple of bugs that needs to be worked out. Thankfully you spotted that html being duplicated so we fixed that.

    dc8, we designed this site with the visitors in mind. We had a similar version last year which the members saidwas too small, but it's the same amount of file size content, just bigger in res.

    minute44, I agree! I will be using DIVtags and css in my future sites, at the time i completed this site, I hadn't learned them yet. And I still have more to know about div tags before I can truly get into it with a client.

    james, this client and his target audience is all about being flashy. They get the latest trendy clothes, gadgets, cars, go to tanning salons etc so the client requested it to be like this.

    Thanks for the comments all.
