    You didn't seem to listen to our suggestions in your other thread. My thoughts still stand. To find out what they are, you should really follow up on your old threads.

    Exclamation Forgot to include New Layout!

    Oh my gosh! Im so sorry, that link to excalo.com is not my new site design, I just drew up a layout in an image, and I forgot to add the link to the image!

    Sorry, I was kind of in a hurry this morning, I completely forgot. My bad!

    Well here it is, anyway.

    The dotted lines indicate where the content will be. It won't be a an iframe, or a DIV, which is what I used last time. The little rounded box on the side will contain the menu. Like I said, it's just a design, no content yet. Just wanted to see what you guys thought of it.

    Aero, I'm mainly keeping the orange swirls, but there are less of them now. I'm trying to make the color-scheme orange, black, white, and grey.

    One quick comment:

    The fire swirls banner image....instead of the white gradient fade make it a black gradient fade I think this would look a lot better. The white seems to washout the fire.

    I have more comments but no time to list them right now.

    This is what it would look like with the black gradient:

    I think its better than the white. Though a few suggestions.

    1.) the fire image itself....is very pixelated this might be because this is just a test, dunno. If you need help making the image clearer I might be able to help some just let me know.

    2.) I like the black gradient but can u make it almost completely black at the bottom then fade it out. Do it in such a way that the first few pixels from the bottom are completely black.

    3.) Since your going the curve route I suggest also curving the very bottom left and right of your page. From an aesthetic view it just helps balance better.

    somewhere between the black and white gradient would look good. They are both to strong. And i find that little nav box (or wtv it is for) looks a bit out of place. Maybe it will look better with content, but ya. I like this site much better then your old one!

    Okay, I attached a design with a silverish-grey type of gradient to this message.

    I'll add other designs as well as this script that will allow you to switch between styles on my website. (eventually) Besides, I dont think my current design doesnt look too bad. I was just looking for a design that was the same theme as my old one, just not as horrible
