I am on a horrid graphics pc atm, but from what I can see it looks great! I can see what Rhomany is saying about not quiet fitting, but it still works and I don't think it's too distracting.

I know what you mean, and that has been giving me such a headache...I can't figure out why they look mismatched, the height in pixels is exactly the same. The only thing I can think of now is that it's the transparency that messes it up. I've been experimenting with different box borders for weeks now...one day I'll get it right...

Looking good Hatsepsut. Now, gather some coin and upgrade, so you can lose the ads.

The actual height of the boxes are uniform on mine. It's just that where your text wraps onto two lines, because the width of the side columns isn't wide enough for the length of the text, the height of the box tops isn't high enough for two lines although it looks perfect for the one lines.
Does that make sense now?

Yep, that makes sense. Seems like we were talking about different things though. I was at first referring to the left and right top content box borders, which seemed to not be in line with the middle one. As for headings not fitting when on 2 lines, that has to be a resolution issue. I've viewed our site with 1280x1024 and 1024x768 and not bothered with other resolutions...lazy of me I suppose... At those res, I don't get any wrapping, but that may well be different depending on browsers and text size settings.

And yeah...about time to subscribe. The interest amongst guildies is still mild though. We are a fairly new guild and growing steadily. We're also very non-elitist and more of a family type guild, so all that can be done to get people here is the occasional hint and spam in guildchat. One option is, of course, to pay myself and then add a paypal button and hope...

Thanks for the input. The next step as I see it is to have a thought about content and how to further personalize the site.

Our guild is very much the same and that's exactly what I did. Paid for it and made it interesting enough for them to want to be there, then added a donation button. In just a couple of weeks I've got enough guild funds to keep us here for the next year. It's amazing how generous people can be if you don't ask and offer them a way to help voluntarily.

Thank you.

Next thing I want to do is add an info section (which should have been there from day 1 perhaps, hihi). As for other content I havent decided what to add...still waiting for input from my guildies...
