Two things one dont post alot of media in the news section make a madia page for that kind of stuff nobody likes scrolling down forever just to see if theses anything interesting there.  Secound either change the tab image or the font color you are using.  They are to similar and it makes it hard to read.  other then that looks decent like the music.

Becoming Adept!

Hey folks, Mattarias here. Just popping in to ask (since this seems like the thread for it...) for some advice on my guild site?  Crimson Tears.

For some reason, avatars don't show up in firefox in the guild forums (though they show up on THIS forum..). Any idea how to get around this?

Hey I like the colors and the layout of the site.  Two things you might want to do are first have the banner not contrast to much with the background.  Whether you change you background red or add a fadding around the banner or something else entirely your call.  Second you may also want to replace your nave bar buttons with pics to just add a something unique to your site.


Also how did you get my name to display. live seen this on other sites and am just curious

Alright, here I go!

A couple notes first.

Before working on this site, I had 0 CSS/HTML experience. The color theme is a darker theme so that it does not hurt the eyes of those who wish to see. I've seen a lot of sites that have great layouts, but the color scheme is horrible in that aspect. I'm working on a Flash intro that I should have up and running this coming weekend if everything goes as planned. I have done most of the layout that I plan on doing, with the exception of adding content boxes in the future and possible some minor ones later this week. I will also be changing the menu tabs up a bit, but nothing major. All criticism is appreciated!

Here's the site: SGO Guild

I'm working on a new banner. I'll probably have it up in a few days. I know it's plain, but we don't want a lot of jibberish on the site. If you know what I mean. I may add to it later, when I get more idea.

Site looks very nice.  But you may want to change the font colors but thats just me.  Also im assuming your going to fix the border problem.  One last thing you may want to move the box on the bottom left of the main page to the right side just to keep the site balanced.
