Seriously, nice first attempt! Keep coding! :)

Your new look is really nice. :)

If you darken the grey and green XBoxey image on the ENTER page, I think it would be much better. Right now, the greys at the edges are still substantially above the brightness of the background black. If you make it so that you hit true black at the edges of the image, by darkening it and boosting the colors back, it will melt right in, and it will be mad. :)

Site looks nice. Good job.

My main complaint would be that the source code looks it was done not by hand.

My opinion is that hand written code always makes the best sites.

To get a true appreciation on website work, learn HTML, then CSS, then Javascript.

Good luck!:cool:

Ok, Now that you know how...throw it away and start over, only do it a little differently each time, Throw away, start over,repeat weekly until you can control every aspect of site creation. :)
Or...just keep having fun.

Let me guess.

You're taking a Desktop Publishing class right now, and 2nd semester is Web Development?

If so, do you go to my school?:eek:

Don't leave such a big space between the "back" & "Home" buttons.

On page 3, make the background color black, to match the other pages.

On page 3 resize the top images so they are the same height.

Move the "this site presented by..." message up a little bit, so it fits in the blank spot created by the images.
