Please take time to look at Maleficium Acies guild site and help me make it better.  I will take any feedback, you won't hurt my feelings.   Also if you have time please read through the code of conduct and whatnot and tell me if there is anything that is unclear.  I have the ideas in my head, that doesnt mean the leak out into text that well .

Nice Site. Even thou ours is not a WoW guild, there are a couple things and ideas I can borrow from yours.

No major things, only a couple suggestions..
1- perhaps I may sound nitpicky on this one.. but nowehere says that you are indeed a WoW guild.... heh
2- a direct link (or at least a suggestion as in go check our forums) from the front page to your forums guild info would probably be useful..
3- the image on the 'splash' page is relatively tall - at 498x711)  (love the design, btw), so when it displays, you have to scroll down a bit to get to the 'Enter'  - I'm running 1650x1024 here.. People with lower resolutions will have to scroll even more.. and the image will probably be 'cut' more, losing some of its impact.. using a slightly scaled down verision may help.. I'd suggest somewhere around 480.

as I said thou, nice site. Good job!
and thats my 2 cents..

Didokova,

Really nice page, but i did notice a few things.

On the calander page u have the point standings.  It makes the page go WAY down, could always put it in the middle of the page and it would prolly cut down how far it goes. Besides u already have all that info and more on the raid officers page.

Speaking of the raid officer page.  The name is a bit misleading, unless all those people are officers =P.  Should prolly name the Tab "Roster & DKP"  or something along those lines.

On the Home Tab there is a lot of pictures on the sides.  Ever thought of cleaning them up in a Slideshow?  GuildPortal has a built in Image gallery that u can set to cy cle through pictures.

Other than that its a awesome site.  I really like the Banner, and the tribute is really nice.

Yea that is true, the main reason for this is we were once a Warhammer guild and left Warhammer to go back to WoW lol.  We are gonna be making a new banner and ill bring this up to our site's graphic designer.  Its nice to have one in the family =P

I think i understand what u ment, the Guild info part of the forums is really only a secondary spot to find it.  The main spot people will see it is on the "Apply Here" Tab.  Although im thinking of changing some of the "Apply Here" tab to have Popups for the info instead of just being static on the page.

I will have to see what i can do with that, thankyou.  It would prolly look better if it all fit on one page with no scrolling. 

Thankyou for your thoughts.

Nice site, love the logo. However two things struck me instantly once I left the splash screen (Ice already mentioned shrinking it so I expected it)

1) Your navigation buttons are tiny especially right against the large border of the content boxes... I think sizing them up a bit would help those you are squinting to see them.

2) Change your welcome message.... I started reading it and KNEW what it said b4 you said it. Why? B/c its almost word for word the welcome message of another site I looked at today. I dont know who had it first nor do I care, but to me it makes one of your guilds look like a copy cat.

Very similar welcome message here

The funny thing is, my welcome message was edited from another site. I was planning on changing it up, it was too long for my tastes really. So, I went ahead and changed it this morning... feel free to keep using whatever you had... although I couldn't find it ... think I am blind today... lol..
