    My own web site, just would like you to look and tell me your opions.

    I'm not a web designer or anything, but I would like any suggestions or ideas on how to make it look/work better.

    ps. Any fundimentals of web design would be helpful, (one rule I know is, small text, muhahaha)

    the first thing u are greeted with is horrible magic round about music, lose it, lose it now!

    secondly, ther isnt much going. try adding some highlights or animations around

    thirdly, give ur page a bit more than alpha= 0% to alpha= 100%... try masking the text and bringing it in that way. use Easing etc...

    hope i havent been 2 harsh

    Masking, easing, if I knew what they meant I would try doing it???

    Info boxes, i thought about making the boarder blink on and off a few times when it opens up?!?! (alpha 0 -> 100 blink).

    thanks.

    i noticed the hit area for some of your buttons is just the text itself. make the hit area a rectangle that surrounds the letters so your visitors dont have to worry 'bout clicking one of the those tiny letters.

    Thought I'd done all the buttons, which ones still do that?

    Keep looking more updates have been added.

    If you want to know what masking is check out the beginners tutorials here on flashkit, they'll help.
    Peace

    One thing about the loading sequence: maybe u could round the number of kbs loaded to make it look neater.

    Just revisited the website,, and i think you should do some about the green gradient blocks, not sure what you should do, how about saying goodbye to the magic roundabout theme too? that just aint working! the dark, depressed, doomy site with magic roundabout dont work. Either make your site look like a Kids nursary on drugs and keep the tune or put some other music to the existing site, (Rock / Metal beats prehaps?) just get rid of the current combination its like having tomato ketchup on cornflakes with milk! (not really the best thing in the world)

    sorry to be a complete arse towards the site but i just think there was a couple of things you may not of been aware didnt quite work together!

    Jammin-D, it's not a problem dude I didn't expect everyone to like it and for me to get everything right.

    I think I might be coming round to changing the music, I guess your right it doesn't really go with the look.

    to make a website which makes people feels
    cool or interesting is good but most important thing
    is what you want to deliver to your users,
    the web deisgn first rule,

    --make your content easy to read--

    the font that you use is pretty hard to read,
    my eye balls are feel like jumping out...=)
    cheers
