After a few months of newbie hell in HTML here is the website I have created for our guild on Hibernia/Guinevere:

I have yet to try custom borders and boxes or CSS yet, but for a n00b I think I did pretty good. I think SoM is a great example of what people who are new to html can do with the tools Guildportal provides.

Tell me what you think

I think you've done a nice job for your virgin foray into HTML. One suggestion I might humbly make is possibly reducing the size of your banner. It seems just a tad bit overbearing. =)

/agree very good job! I felt inclined to pick up my sword and charge into battle after settling in for a bit

I agree it is rather large. I kinda like the in your face quality of it...

I am also on high speed access, so I have no idea if that banner takes for ever to load.

I will ask around the guild to see if our members are taking more than a few seconds to load it. If so i sould probably shrink it some.

Feel free to add any suggestions, I love criticism!

Peace and chicken grease!

I'm also on high speed. I wasn't so much referring to loading times as I was aesthetics and user-friendliness.

I love the way you guys did your guild member images.  I'm definately going to be changing our system to look like yours in the coming month.  Nice!

/bump for new updates on featured guilds =)

I learned a bit more about HTML, but I am still a newb.

Our site is done with a minimum of HTML knowledge, I think we have a good example of what can be done with Guildportal basics.

I am going to dive into creating a CSS, look for the new look soon.

Thanks Aaron and GP, and all the great sites for inspiration.

/agree on the banner comment. Other than that, I must say I am impressed. Very nice layout/aestethics and colour scheme overall.

Side note: My ad blocker seems to do funny things/is not able to distinguish what is an ad and what isn't. The first time I loaded the page, all the background images/member images as well as the banner were treated like ads and blocked, which gave the page ad "odd" look to say the least.
