Thanks for the early comments. What I am mainly interested in
is seeing if there is a problem navigating to all the pages (and just getting around in general), not really in just how the front page looks.
I realize there is no "universally perfect" style for a web site (and
if there was, the www would be a boring place , but if there
is a general agreement among reviewers as to changes, I would be happy to consider them.
Does anyone else agree with Flitcher that the Cyberdrome.org and Rhea-fx.com sites have an 80's look to them? I have to admit that my 3D simulation and science fiction story were both inspired by the 80's movie TRON, but I didn't think I was carrying that style into my site. If so, is this a bad thing?
FYI - This version was inspired by the current StarWars.com site (big picture in the background with text in foreground).
They are basically the same site with a different graphic. I think you need to create a different web image for the two of them to seperate their uniqueness. Times have changed and you can definitly find a better graphic and logo than that.
Thanks for all the input - some like the style I've chosen and others - well, not so much. I listen to and appreciate all comments.
To be honest, if I was running a web business, I would have a page like pixelbrick.com - cool flash there, although maybe a bit to much movement for my tastes. I do like the general layout, although I am seeing the same look more and more places (so much copying these days)...
I did take one person's suggestion (JSpired) and reduced the font size on many pages, including the front page. I also reduced some of the images down 25%. I have a 1280x1024 flatscreen monitor and I forget that not everyone is viewing the web at such a high resolution..
Again, thanks for all the comments
Virtual beers for everyone!
Even though my story came out many years before "The Matrix", I am constantly being compared to it. You could say the style of my story is "Matrix meets TRON," so I am trying to make my site have this same feeling - stark blue backgrounds, but with subdued easy-to-read text colors (with an occasional stand-out red or green heading).
