    I can see that a lot of time and effort has been put into the site, Here are my niggles

    Navigation
    The navigation is rather hard to rad, as the size of the font mixed with the colour of it against the background colour makes it blend in with the border upon rollover on my LCD monitor.

    Profile Page
    This page is confusing as whenever i roll above or below the text setion I scroll! aaaah. I realise that you have put the scrollbars in place to stp vertical scrolling? - but you really need to make these extra scrollbars appear throughout the site, as at least one other page does have horizontal scrolling.

    Elsewhere Page
    No Images show up in the text section, plus you have a Javascript Error showing.

    Colour Scheme...
    ...Or rather, the lack of one - page background colors change as you go from page to page, it gives the site an inconsistent feel.

    There you go, overall, 3.5/5.

    Very interesting site. I like the "credit card" layout. I think the thing you have to think out the most is the navigation. Right now, it's really disconnected from everything else.

    justlivyalife and Transio hit it right on the head. The concept is cool, but I think it needs to be carried out a little better, IMO. I'm not a fan of the color scheme, and there seems to be alot of miscellanous lines on the site that are a distraction. With a little bit of tweaking, I think this could work.

    OK many thanks for the response guys, its REALLY appreciated.

    As in regards to what to do with the navigation rollovers I dont what else to do, any suggestions ?

    The profile page scrollers are also seen on the news page, may I ask what page has the horizontal scoll in place, as I havent had this problem on my machine ?

    What is the Javascript Error that is occuring on the Elsewhere page ? Can you poss give me more info and details, thanks.

    The color scheme is a max of 5 colors (and that includes white) the backgrounds of the text areas on each page are alternate, grey then blue and so forth, which is consistant, isnt it ?

    Again many thanks in advance !

    Hey

    Whatever you do to the nav, take out the link border around it, it will look a lot better
