    Please pay attention to where you post your site for review. The logical place would have been the Site Review forum.

    Text needs to be a different color other than black.

    I think you need some contrasting colors. You seem to have to much blue.

    I think your logo needs to stand out more.

    Your members list page seems to not be in any order. Order by username or something.

    You also have 39 coding errors see them here.

    I also think your header should link back to the home page.

    Aero makes some excellent points, especially about the text colors. Not only is it bad from an accessibility standpoint (see Checklist of Checkpoints for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0) but it can also put you on the fast track toward low SEO rankings. Google's search engine bots have the ability to identify pages that have a lot of low-contrast text (such as http://sleekupload.com/info). Often times they see this as an attempt to boost ranking.

    Also on this page: http://sleekupload.com/info

    Min Thumbnail Dimention Size: 500px
    Max Thumbnail Dimention Size: 50px
    Not only did you misspell dimension, you have the minimum larger than the maximum.

    Hi.

    I'm no expert, at all. My impressions are that of the lay user.

    1. Whats the site for? There is no explanatory text on the page to tell me who this site is aimed at. Is it a youtube copy? Is it for a business site? There is nothing there that makes me want to stay and find out.

    http://webdesign.about.com/od/writing/a/aa031405.htm

    http://www.wilsonweb.com/articles/12design.htm
    Especially section 5.

    2. The colours stop me from reading the text.

    3. User name and password boxes out of line.

    4. The ad doesn't fit the ad column.

    Keep at it. It's taken me 3 weeks to learn enough to get the site I want critiques to it's current state.

    Er, this IS the review forum, or did you move it from somewhere else? Just wondered, like. Maybe I'm lost...

    Aero posted before the thread was moved by a moderator.
