Heyas gang..

I'm in the process of totally revamping the Torva Spiritus website hosted at GuildPortal and wanted to get some constructive criticism from my peers here.  As of this writing, it is using all custom HTML (a modified version of the Neon Green theme) and very little graphics to keep things simple and easier to load.  A good deal of the specialized content is member only so I'm not looking for ideas of content as much as I am ideas to improve the design without it becoming a bandwidth hog.  (by the way, for those who haven't seen me mention elsewhere - dial-up sucks! lol  /em gets through his momentary return to DSL withdrawal)..

Let me know what yall think!

Thanks

I have to ask... why green?

But I like the simplicity of it... I like the dots around the Box titles, it's a very nice way to dress it up.

Very nice so far Kit. Nice and clean and simple. Although personally I have to say I found your green a little dark - after a while you find yourself squinting at it. *However* that could just be me because I'm green-colour blind and see it all in shades of grey, so feel free to ignore me!
Love your .:'s around your titles and although I'm a fan of sites with inventive banners, I have to say your officer mail contacts does make a nice change.
Let us know when you do more!

Lol..  Our members are asking me the same thing regarding the green.  Truth is where I adopted from the Neon Green theme (same that is used here on the admin site), I just kept it to avoid changing all of the color tags for the moment.  Seems the only folks that like the green are the tree hugging druids..  lol

Thanks for the comments...  I'll post when I get more changes in.

Well, if you *really* like the green, how about a lighter background perhaps? A textured pale green or beige background would be easier on the eyes... of course you'd have to change your light text, but that looks like an easier job than changing all your custom boxes... lol

As one of thosetree hugging druids, I like the green. But think that it is very plain looking, but then again I am very partial to fancy borders, lol.
I do like the tab text and text in banner, very neat.

Thanks Makora..  I'm on that eternal quest for frame borders that I like.  I guess I like a simple and clean look.  I want something that is not too gawdy but can't seem to find anything that clicks in my mind of being right.

At any rate, thanks for taking the time to check us out!
