    New site and design feedback

    Hi all,
    First of all what do you think of changing my website name from thefreegamesdb.com to tfgdb.com?
    I've been hard at work recreating the site and would like to get some feedback on it, mainly the logo, navigation bar and homepage as those are the bits that have been changed majorly.
    Thanks for any feedback

    I have a lot of things to comment on. How specific do you want me to get?

    As detailed as you can be, I'm good at coding but my design skills are somewhat lacking.
    Thanks

    Alright then, detailed it is

    Header

    1)
    Logo is pixelized and very low quality.
    2) The header color doesnt fit well with a gaming website. Use a brighter shade or any other more intense color.
    3) Maybe make the header a very slight gradiant? The one tone color is getting very old thanks to windows8.
    4) The search bar and the search button need to match. Adjust your search bar to be the same height and same round corner radius as the button.
    5) When you hover over the "Browse Games" link, make the left edge of the button and the left side of the drop down align so it looks more consistant.
    6) Also do the above to the "Contribute" link
    7) Get rid of the white on either side of the links when you hover over them. Makes it look kind of tacky
    8) When hovering over your "Login/Register" link; Align the username and password with their appropriate text boxes.
    9)
    Bring the register link to be beside the login and get rid of the underline and make a hover effect for it. Prefferibly a color change hover effect.
    10) Give your "Login" button a unique style, don't just use the default button style.

    Top Content

    1)
    On the right column, make the header "Osu" to be bold with a bigger font rather then the underline and the blue color.
    2) Make the entire sections shadow to be a light shade of gray or black instead of that blue. It will make it look more natural.

    Bottom Content

    Nothing to say... yet.

    Footer

    1)
    Make your footer the same color as your navigation and make it span 100% like the header.
    2) Instead of the underline for the footer links, make them have a hover effect. Also use the same font color for the links as your navigation but not bold.

    Ok, thats all for now. I will add more when a think of it. Keep in mind that all the things listed is what I would have dont. Everything is up to you.

    Ok, I've done some updating.
    1) Should be better now
    2 & 3) Made it lighter
    4) Changed search bar, didn't like old one
    5 & 6) I think they look better if they are all centered so left as is
    7) done
    8 & 9) Login page used instead now, hovering login was glitchy.
    10) Not done yet

    1) Done, left underlined as it matches the whole site style
    2) I can't see any blue outline? Its grey?

    1 & 2) Done

    Thanks again for your help and if you can see anything else that needs changing don't hesitate to say

    Header
    1)
    like I said its your choice but I still wouldnt use that shade of blue in general. Looks a little bland to me
    2)
    Logo still looks a bit low quality to me. Maybe its becuase im using Internet Explorer (at work, dont have a choice)

    Top Content
    1)
    The "Osu" header. Try making it bold, larger font, and no underline
    2)
    Around the entire div of your top content part you have a blueish shadow. Try making it a light black/dark gray.

    Thats it for now.

    Yea, #1 was my fault. I just tried your website using google chrome and your logo looks fine. I have no idea why it looks bad in Internet Explorer but I would fix it anyway if I were you.
