my first design. I like the site's layout pretty much the way that it is. I wanted to see the top new images instead of just the names. I also wanted the member activities seperated from the navigation. I also happen to prefer darker sites. ; ) suggestions welcome...please.

i like it very much. will this layout be available? i especially like the way you used the logo in the corner...dunno why, but it is cool looking.the dark is VERY nice, and i also like the fact that you can see the new images without clicking on the link.

Excellent stuff Tracy.. but then i expected nothing less :D..i'll certainly be inspired to do something darker now.... i was worried that the 'stuck in there ways' attitude might disfavour dark ones... but now with you paving the way im thinking.. ahhh stuff them.. they dont know whats good for them :D

yeah agree with Grim & Otaku, & all the others, this is the best one so far for me. very easy on the eyes, clean, crisp, nice font & i also have a soft spot for darker web pages : ) very well layed out indeed. Damn fine work, i was thinking of doing a black one too but this is sweet, however i will try my hand at it but i fear that it wont do. : ) this is wicked :{D

the layouts really nice, i like the colors a lot too. i think it needs to be a lot more polished, the graphics aren't sharp. you also took my idea :-p of the spider icon sprawling across the bg

wow...this is good. i was gonna do something dark like this but i see you beat me to it. no worries, it won't stop me :)

My only suggestions for this would be to give all the modules (sidebar, bottom bar, main workspace) the same edges. The workspace is diff from all the rest, and I think u should change the bottom and sidebar to match it. I also think the sidebar is too wide. w/o the users online being posisioned there, it doesn't have to be very wide at all.

thanks you guys. glad that you like it. I've never done anything like this, it's nice that it was well received.
lol - reddawg...I actually got the idea of the spider in the back...from the existing caedes site design. :P
reddawg and sam - thanks for the suggestions. I appreciate them. They will help me the next time I try this.

I agree with the above remarks (your work is always excellent, Tracy), and would only suggest condensing the text by about half -- perhaps swapping the textural center with the images. This format with a more graphical look would be a great choice. Kudos!

Not your best effort...It's a nice design, but I feel your choice of font was less than optimal.

Still a big fan.

Yes, I agree with DFX; the font is not so good. But if you kept it out of the main body text and just used it for titles it wouldn't be so bad.

I usually don't go for black background webpages, but this is done pretty well. I particularly like the rounded border areas. I don't really care for the slanted spider though.

this is definitely my favorite design...even more so if you'd fix two little things tho...
~the spider behind the news and stuff is just a bit too big in my opinion
~the over-use of the same font...a change-over to the main body text's font would increase the look of the design much...
~also, if the site plans on using the design I assume the google ads would have to somehow be implemented into your design.

once again, this is very nice tho, 9/10

There is nothing wrong with the site now... but that would be completely awesome to have instead of this... it is easier to understand and a lot easier to see than this white background with black text... I don't like to be blinded by the background... You got my vote for a BIG 10/10!!!
