Becoming Adept!

Alright here is the problem... I hate my guild site..It looks like crap.

Take a look and tell me if there is anything you could make me or anything to make it look better. I'm mainly looking for a cool new background, link pictures, and like a border instead of the one that guildportal offers us, oh and also a cool banner if you could. Thanks for your assistance!

Fingers of Fury!

I would definitely say that the site could use some work. First off, I'd get rid of the yellow.  I would recommend to go with a tone color. If you have yellow as your guild color, try to work some yellow in there, but I wouldn't do everything yellow.

As far as format, guildportal has some mediocre templates, which can be used if you dont have a whole lot of experience with doing websites. If you have time, I would recommend learning CSS (very easy to learn) and then create your own style sheet or even edit the ones Guildportal does to reflect something you like. I dont know how much you know HTML, java,flash,etc., but knowing some of this stuff can really make a page stand out. There are plenty of sites out there that can give you free tutorials. I recommend checking them out.

For graphics, you can definitely create some really awesome graphics with PhotoShop or similar program. I believe Photoshop as well as Corel Paintshop (or whatever it is called) have free trial versions, which should give you plenty of time to make some cool things. I definitely recommend those.

Most of all, don't be afraid to try something. With the ease of Guildportal, you can always edit it, add something, or delete it. That is one of the aspects I like.

Hope this helps

So it is Css that you make the boders with? I thought you just make the image and put it in there or something.
