    I added 5 turtle dollars just for fun for whoevers critique I like the best. (It's hard to give it out based on the 'best' critique since its highly subjective, but I do like to hear what people like or don't like) Is this even a valid use for turtle dollars? If not someone correct me hehe

    Yeah you can award TD's to anyone for any reason. I like this design, but I think a some different colored accents would improve it. I love blue, but this is a little too much blue. You could try changing the text color, or maybe adding some color to your banner. Right now it's just blue overload. Nice otherwise though.

    They're your TDs, bro. Spend them however you like. If they help you, that's all that matters.

    I personally wouldn't change the number of colours, but the depth of them. Personally, I find that blue a bit too "heavy". A lighter blue, perhaps a powder or metallic colour, would likely look a lot better. You may also want to experiment with gradients and/or scanlines, just to break up the colour monotony a bit. You don't necessarily need an extreme gradient either. Just use a 10-percent range (like go from 50% brightness/saturation to 60%, then back to 50%, or something like that.)

    Personally, I think the one thing that would really make the page jump out at you would be a very simple and clean stock image representing what your page is about, like some dude at a computer creating a web page or something. Just don't put one of those stupid guys jumping up and down waving his keyboard or a briefcase in the air. Those are just annoying.

    Those are all very minor things, and I really like it overall though.

    I updated the banner image.. I took your thoughts into account.. I think it is an improvement, but I am going to sleep on it and see how it looks tomorrow.. feel free to keep the comments coming

    I don't think I could get an image of an actual person in the banner to actually look good.. at least not with the way it looks now I was thinking about sticking a bit orange cone up there though with a sign that says 'under construction' (just kidding).

    I love that new header. It really suits the design and fits in well with the site.

    For the text color, I think, if you took it off bold, and made the color very dark blue - almost black - then it would look fine.

    Also, instead of 'copyright' put 'Copyright' - use capitals.

    I would, as well, take off the 'powered by CSS and PHP' under the navigation as it seems to serve no purpose.

    Under the headings, put capitals at the beginning of sentences 'various tutorials...' should be 'Various tutorials...'

    Perhaps I am just being picky but all of this should help your design a fair bit. It will improve the content, and some of it (like the bit about your text) will improve the look as well. Other than the things I have specified, good site.

    I like the site but it looks too blue though. Fix the scrolling problem in FireFox, try changing the onmouse color to a more readable one. Overall 4/5. Good Work.

    The banner has the word 'Design' larger than 'Dagon' which is actually the more important word?
    If you reversed the left and right images in the banner, then 'Dagon' could be the larger.
    Just a suggestion - I'm no graphic designer, but that's how it struck me.

    I dunno about what sarab said. I see her point, but making the word "design" larger made more sense to me since the site happens to focus on it, moreso than the company. I'd leave that the way it is.

    I like the new banner though. That's badass. Don't play with that. Just take some of the other suggestions into account.
