    Hey eveyone, I am in the process of re-formatting my website again.:confused: But I thought I would ask for you input this time. Can everyone go to the link below and see if you like the format, setup, colors, it is just the homepage as of now. Once I get that looking good, I can get the rest.

    What do you think? Comments, suggestions?

    Thanks!!

    title on the Index page is not lined up... hit the enter key after you insert that first giant picture to seperate your slogan with the picture.

    I like it. The top logo might be a little too large for dial up users, though. Also your because life's was off to the right. But like I said it might just be my computer.

    Sweet. Thanks guys. Did I fix the problem with the logo? It looks fine on mine, but I am running 800x600 so I can't see all the problems.

    Can you read the black against the blue, or should I change the font color?

    I put the size of the main pic down a lot too.

    From Dial Up Users Perspective...
    --too large Top Image... takes too long, but once its up, its nice
    --like the nav bar...
    --like the color scheme... Im a big fan of blues...
    Overall its good...

    Was that before or after I sized it down?

    It should be around 80k now.

    Too large meaning the file size is too large. You should have a way to save it in lower quality same size. In Photoshop it is "save for web"

    The one you have up there is 81K WAY to big for a dialup. I am resizing it for you and will attch it below.

    It is still a little big for dial up but will work better. You have a lot of detail in that pic which causes the file size to be large, but here it is at 25K you can see the quality is a step down but still pretty good.

    i have a small suggestion, and im not trying to nit pick
    you have a ford symbol and a mustang symbol at the bottom above an explorer logo...
    they are alittle out of alignment.
    If you make a small table 2x2
    merge the bottom 2 cells and insert the explorer logo there, and insert the ford and mustang in the other 2 cells they will be aligned better. Center both logos in the center of the cell. Right now the ford logo looks high and to the left.

    That makes me feel bad that I don't do anything productive with my spare time.... :)

    Everyone already said the things I noticed and I sent you an email jaws.. It was before I made it to the bottom of the thread, so it does kind of overlap what people have already said.
