    It's pretty good, one thing I always recommend is not to use #000 background colours, go for more like #111, jet black rarely works and is rarely used on websites.

    Your main content area feels quite squashed together, there isn't much white space going on.

    It feels like you put some effort into the video box and sort of just blocked everything else out. You should probably base more of your content areas around that box perhaps?

    I think you could get a better picture for your banner, something which can take up more space and have more colour as well. It's not as easy on black for sure but it needs something !

    I'd suggest reducing your navigation bar font, you could do more for the selected page perhaps rather than just making it green?

    Finally, I'd try to drop a sidebar and just have 1. If you're planning on having significant advertising then this may not be doable but it might help space things out a bit.

    Wow no doubt the best one is the new design.

    Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks.
    But of course, if you dig deeper, itís really how it works.

    1) the navigation text should be a bit smaller.
    2) the top which has register and member login should also be smaller text. I think the whole div is a little too tall.

    OT: I like how you used the green. Makes it look like a real gaming website

    I updated the design. I think it looks a thousand times better. Thanks for the input.

    Here is the updated version of the design:
    http://www.my-testing-area2.netau.ne...two_column.png

    By the way, the client REALLY wants to keep the image in the header. I made it a little lighter to brighten up the header.

    Any more suggestions?

    It does look much better. I really like the header too. I think you nailed it. Now all you have to do is convert it to code... :stomp: Cant w8 to see it.

    It is much better, some little things like widen your news boxes to align with the video box. I'd also maybe make your headers a bit stronger. Such as this sort of thing:

    I had a hard time finding a header that looked good. I'll try the green head with the white text.

    I thing the green header fits well with the theme.
