    A few weeks ago i started coding on my community research and development web site. now that the HSC has finished i have been able to get stuck in and do some serious coding. the site has taken shape and there is only one major piece left, but before i start doing that bit i was wondering if some people could give me some feedback on the site and it's motovations??

    regards...

    suggestion: in forum posts, make the url's become links.

    not that its "wrong" in anyway but

    actually I agree with Reno on that, the crosshair is quite annoying. I dont mean to sound negative in any way as the general navigation on the site is fine. If you wish to go for something unique or different try variations on an arrow idea. A crosshair is not particulary easy for navigation.

    rty

    The unified theory of physical properties?

    Er...that's probably impossible to solve, nevermind.

    But, give it a go...

    What's the correlation between gravitrons, magnetic pull, spin, and force? WE MUST KNOW. THE UNITY DEMANDS IT.

    I like the layout and the main logo. :lol: And forums.

    You need ideas? How about a brief description of your twelve recent [scientifik] researches? Maybe some complicated Excel-style radar-charts?

    looks fine, but can I ask why you used a PNG at the top of the page?

    gifs and pngs are good for toned images as the one you used but if you had used jpeg format you could have easily gotten it down from over 52k to around 10-15k with no loss in visible quality. as a side note alot of the older browsers dont support png correctly as well.
