    This site is a slow loader.

    Now I'm actually on it, the design is quite nice. Well laid and thought out.

    Maybe add a little more colour.

    Deffinatly use html instead of images for your site a little more, even your text is images and this is making your site load very slow.

    Also consider using a bigger font. The smaller font sizes just don't do it for me I am afraid.

    Overall, a good, steady start. Try and bring a little more colour to the site and use text instead of images for most of your content.

    Good luck,
    Daniel.

    It's nice, but I agree with all comments above, as well as these of my own:

    - Get rid of the Justified text, that is for printed works, not websites.
    - Use a consistent navigation throughout the site.
    - Don't use graphic instead of text, even on my 512KB connection it takes over 10 seconds to display each page.
    - Reuse graphics throughout.
    - Get rid of the 'Since...' and the 'Best viewed...' They are unneccessary and there is no need for the 'Since...' to appear on every page.

    Overall, 3/5 rating.

    Thank for advices.
    I changed png into gif.
    I wrote "best viewed..." because pages really do look the best in 1024x768. :devious:

    Instead of using gifs, you should really slice this up and enter the content in as text. The text is very hard to read right now, not only because the text is all images, but also because of the justified alignment. The columns are small, so one line will have one word s t r e t c h e d out, and the next line has everythingjammedtogether. Too much of a change from one line to the next.

    Also, for your forums, it's a good idea to let people browse the forum without registering. When I click on your forum, I'm immediately prompted to register, and there's no incentive for me to register. If I could view your forum, I might see a thread I'm interested in, and that would entice me to sign up. I'm not going to sign up for something that I know nothing about.

    Well, when I started making these pages,the text was not image and it look the same as now as an image.
    I don't quite understand - if design is nice, what does it matter that all page is picture?

    :dead: If I'd make bigger font, wouldn't it be too big for the whole page design? ( Sorry for my English, I hope you understand me)

    It's better not to use text as images because images take more time to download and don't give as good quality, nor can it be resized by the user (if someone is half blind or something they may want bigger text).

    I know it may be harder to align the text in each of their columns without images but its something that I think could be looked into.
