    Site blocked for iPhone ( but at least it was quick to tell me that )...

    No sense in worrying about the design, layout or pretty much anything else until you fix whatever is make the site load so slow... Since you'll never get a designer to actually sit and wait for it to load...

    Seriously, if not for this being a request for review, I would have never waited that long for any page to load.

    It looks and feels so 80'ish "old fashion" and it did load really slow for me as well which maybe has something to do with your slide-in form and slide-in social media buttons. As it stands right now there is nothing on your site that makes me want to sign up or become a contributor. You say join today but what am I joining? No info, no enticing graphics or examples. Nice form though.

    Thanks for the feed back i think i found the problem with slow i was still pre loading some old images that were not needed.

    i have also made some changes to the design which i think looks better.

    positive or negative feedback would be greatly appreciated

    The speed issue isn't being caused by preloading. The speed issue is being caused by a combination of the physical location of the site (Australia) and what appears to be a home hosted site. Are you hosting this on your own personal broadband connection?
