    I designed it myself (and I'm sure it shows D

    Basically, I like the top navigation bar and my goal was to design the site around that. However I'm not sure if the design of the main page is lacking.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Or should I just keep it as it is?

    It's quite nice. I think the green is a little bright - how about going down a couple of shades?
    Edit - the site is a little wide for a static layout - people with lower resolutions might have trouble.

    You should better format the login box. Also your logo is a bit so-so. Perhaps some minor text tweaking on the home page.

    Apart from these things its a pretty nice design.

    Agree with some of the points above.
    I think the navigation looks great, like the colour choices etc - but agree that the logo is a bit run-of-the-mill, and lets the design down.
    "You are not currently logged in" box could do with some colour to help it stand out, barely noticed it at first glance.
    Also not a big fan of the image accross the middle of the page - maybe make the height lower? It kind of dominates the page, but isn't strong enough for you to *want* it to dominate the page.

    I feel the design is average because the target market you are trying to reach is young and are a fan of nice imagery, not bundles of text.

    People using 800 x 600 are not able to see the right hand side due to your wide design, by using margin:0 auto; in your css you could get your design to be fluid.

    In addition im using firefox and the 'not logged in' image lets the logo and top banner down as you can see a square border round it.

    Well, the navigation bar is ok. I like the colors and its usability as well. But I should agree with the comments upon the logo that looks quite ordinary and I also think that there should be a picture in the lower part of the homepage for it looks plaint without it.

    Cool navigation. as was said before, people with small screen resolution may have a hard time. My main point is that the font may be a little large, unless you're trying to appeal to baby boomers or other older people with glasses, you can shrink that down to give it a cleaner look. other than that, nice work.

    Yes, the green is far too bright. Please tone it down a little.
    Otherwise, wonderful job.
