RPGds.NET. A site about the new (so new it's not out yet) game design software RPGds, similar to RM2K but (IMHO) much better and much more flexible. A few of the features don't work yet, but I'm excited about the hit counter (we've only been open 4 months or so as of today (Sept. 7, 2004).
Oh, and the nav-bars look like CRAP in any Netscape-powered browser. Working on that, and if anyone has a workaround let me know (the problem is due to setting the DISPLAY style from NONE to BLOCK).
I build professional websites for a company, so most of my comments will be based on a professional site though using those guidelines for main webpages always helps to create a better website in general, at least in my opinion.
the text is really hard to see, white text, blue text, red text, and orange text work best on a black background
the fact that the text goes over the image and the image has lighter colors also makes it more difficult to read
scrolling text is generally a nuissance, I don't like have to strain to try to read anything on a website, and your website is mainly for reading.
NEVER, I repeat NEVER put music on your website that the user can not turn off by press the stop button.
Music on websites is generally bad taste or annoying, not to mention I am generally listening to my own music on my computer and do not like other people's music interfering with it. If you wish me to be able to here the song learn how to enable it where I can press play your website, do not force me to listen to it.
At the bottom you have an image that says IF it should be that way, it goes over the text and behind the images. While that is a nifty affect, that is also in bad taste and just annoying, not to mention a distraction from the main content of the page.
Other than that, its not too shabby, you have a good layout and a good setup, I really dig the background despite the fact that it interferes with some of the content.
I'm making a new layout which is not supposed to be up yet for the public to see, but I feel I need opinions. My site is a graphics site named: Bellezza Eterna
Be sure not to tell anyone else this URL. I don't want a lot of people to see it right now.
Extremely nice layout, very well done, very crisp, very clean
You need to do something about the text and the background though, especially on the left side. It is hard to read and strains the eyes. Lighten up the background or change the color, or change the text, change the color of the text, change the font, change the style, bold it or something.
I wouldn't actually try getting information for this for the simple reason it would take me too long to read and strain my eyes too much.
*Note: The CS section was my idea the CZ section he wanted it like that personaly i don't like it, but he loves it :s
Alright, for the opening page, add some graphics, do a flash introduction, or add some more text. If you want more ideas pm me I'll come up with a few, I do this for a living.
The condition zero page is very nice, but all your text and links need to be moved up. They are too far down on the page, and the page looks empty if you don't browse in full screen. I know a lot of people that do not. Not to mention scrolling down to actually find what is on the page besides graphics is slightly annoying. But the page is still really nice.
The other link is dead, might want to check into that.
Not bad not bad at all.
First impression is a old dos video game. Might want to change the green links, they are a little difficult to read. Your top image is also a little blurry, but it does not necissarily(sp?) look bad, just did not know if thats what you were going for or not.
