    As you may already know, I am working on a major new release of my game, Dungeon Diver. I have published the game's help file online for all to see, though it's not linked to anywhere on my site yet. That will change once I push out the new redesign for my site.

    Anyway, I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to improve the help file. Is it helpful? Based on what's there, is there anything that should be explained better? Here it is. This was designed in iWeb '08, and the site redesign will also use iWeb '08 as its basis.

    From a quick first glance:
    1. The site becomes un-navigable when JavaScript is disabled, as the nav bar isn't present. This will hurt your search engine ranking and could keep some visitors from viewing your site.
    2. It has a nice and clean look.
    3. With it being for a game, I think a few more graphics would be nice. I haven't looked at the game though.

    1. That's iWeb's fault - nothing I can do about it.
    2. That's what I had hoped to achieve - thanks!
    3. Yes, I agree - should I add monster graphics? The game's logo? Both? I'm not quite sure what would look good. Those are the choices I have, as far as graphics go. Anything else would require that I create new graphics especially for the site.

    Yes, monsters and a logo would be good. That's what I was thinking when I wrote that.

    Maybe it is what angelwatt said previously. But this is what I see when I open the page:

    If this is the actual design, it looks way to clean for my liking. Adding some color could really improve it.
