    With or Without?

    I have 2 proofs here of the site I am working on for my Dedicated Server venture. I want to know if I should go with, or without the silvery "X" in the header.

    I think that the silver adds to the contrast of the ServerCrossing words, and also draws your eyes to the center of it. But I also think that it looks nice without it. So I'd like to see what the resident 'experts' say

    Oh, and please post any other comments/suggestions... Thanks!

    Yeah, its a hard decision... Without it, it just seems like its lacking something, but with it, it just doesnt quite click.

    I vote to not use the "X".

    On a side note, shouldn't the slogan be "Where Servers Meet On The Information Super Highway" ?

    Is a deer crossing where deer meet on the road, or where the deer meets the road? Same with a train crossing?

    I'd go without the X. Or change to colour of it. It seems out of place to me.

    Without the X. I would also suggest you redo the colours, you have a great 3D server (from another post I remember you saying that it was created for you) and I think your site would be great if the colours matched.

    I agree with the other posters, it looks cleaner without the X.

    Redo the colors? In what way... and match with what? My Utaria.net site?


    I want this site to look similar, but stand out from my utaria.net site, so people know that it is separate, but linked (a division of utaria.net). Thus the yellow/green color, something bright and pleasing to the eye. At least, its pleasing to my eyes.
