    I just launched a personal project I have been wanting to do forever, but have never found the time to create. It's called Error18.com and it's basically a wallpaper / digital art gallery. I hope to expand on it to include users, a forum, maybe personal user galleries, but first get the blog up and running.

    It's bult on expression engine with Tutorialzine's Combines Social Stats sprinkled in! Some constructive criticism would be awesome!

    Anyways heres the URL http://error18.com and a screen shot is attached!

    Nice layout.
    Page transitions could be smoother. (I can envision something like this on a horizontal slider, rather than refreshing the entire page)
    BTW, you should kern the letters in the Error18 logo, so the strokes line up.

    i would suggest maybe have a front page that explains what the site is for, an area that has updates or news maybe?

    I'm working on that, It's going to be in the blog area. I just can't decide on a decent design.

    I really like the design, but like the first poster said, you should make it so that the page doesn't refresh every time.

    Nice site!

    ... I agree with the other posts though. Favicon, some sort of js content transition, explanation of what you're trying to do etc.

    Out of interest, why 'Error 18'? Doesn't seem to mean anything.

    Error18.com was an old domain name I had laying around and seemed like it fit the part. It means absolutely nothing :D

    i think it looks great, simple & too the point. only thing i can say negative is it took me a min to figure out the sites purpose. design wise tho looks fantastic, smooth lines, clean, minimal..i like!
