Becoming Adept!


 Hey guys, I've started this website about 2 weeks ago. It's for my Warhammer guild Anathema Returns on Red Eye Mountian. I was hoping some of you could check it out and give me some general advice for improving it. Thank you guys.

 My website is - ar.guildportal.com

Very nice site!

The only two suggestions I have are:

- Too much gold color having your fonts the same colors as your boarders. If you incorporate some of the whites and shades of gray colors we see in your banner within your text, it would keep your boarders and texts from blending in together.

- The second thing is either hiding the little standard Blog and Mail icons or finding ones that blend in better with your site.

Easy fixes though, very nice site!

 Thank you Kaysi, I absolutely agree making the changes. I appreciate it.

Ok, I swapped the font colors which should look better and I have no idea how to remove the icons beside the names.

Is there anything else that need changes anyone?

Here's the front of Mottie's test site, under "Hiding Elements" there's one for "Hiding Blog & Message Icons". 

-or-

You can go to your Control Panel ---> Styles and Colors ---> Page Style ---> User Link. There's two boxes here you can check to hide them OR if you would like to use another image in it's place you can place the url for those images there. Just make sure you keep the images tiny!

Here's the one I use on my site for mail, you are more then welcomed to use it as well if you like it.

PS- The font colors look great!

looks very good all i would suggest is regarding your menu tabs, atm they all bunch up at the left, perhaps find some way of centering them, or perhaps create images for them if you fancy something more decorative, (i have tab images on button on my site http://www.the-killer-carebears.co.uk)

errrm otherwise looks good to me keep up the good work

Kaysi and Rhiannanna

Thanks Kaysi, used your advice again and the mail symbol looks great! I hid the blog icon because I doubt anyone will ever use that myself included.

Rhiannanna good point with the links being clattered, I'll look into it. I love your link icons on your website but they are too closely related to world of warcraft to really use for my warhammer online site. I appreciate the offer though.

Thanks
