    please review (another) site

    I was inspired by this thread to make my own design site. Please review my site:

    The colors are a bit out there and it doesnt have much of a layout. It is valid and everything but its just looks like a horizontal row or links and some text and some colors splashed around it to me.

    As said before, the colors are ok. Font names with spaces in them need to have double quotes around them, ie "Berlin Sans FB"

    What's so "out there" about the colors? I wanted to make the site stand out, 'cause I'm tired of all the sites with plain backgrounds.

    Funky colors is not the type of "stand out" you should be looking for...

    I'd agree, standing out is good, but not for the wrong reasons. Perhaps you could play around with the colors more.

    "I've chosen a black background for most of my text because it's easier on the eyes than staring at a white screen. Think about it: your monitor is not a piece of paper, no matter how hard you try to make it one. Staring at a white background while you read is like staring at a light bulb (don't believe me? Try turning off the lights next time you use a word processor). Would you stare at a light bulb for hours at a time? Not if you want to keep your vision." Maddox

    Okay, I changed the colors. Let me know what you think. The background is off-white (#F0F0F0).

    Looks better I think. But I had an idea, what if you went with a simple gradiant. Just a thin image that would span 100% on the y axis of your site and repeat on the x axis? Just some more spare change I had in my pockets.

    The off-white color doesn't work with your Logo, and not with your link colors and such. I have some obsessive complusive disorder about having a black background and have everything else some sort of red color...

    I'd change the background, or the other colors.

    I am a blue person, like I said I would use a gradiant to fade from the top to the bottom, make it a smooth transition... but thats just me. It would be a blue gradiant....

    I highly disagree with that statement, but hey... I've always found dark text on a light background easier to read.
