i made a few changes to my website< /a> recently:

- combined 3 of my existing color schemes into one, and dropped the 4th scheme altogether. i thought all of the existing schemes were too monochromatic (essentially there was blue, red, brown, or grey) so i took my favorite colors from each one, tweaked a little to make sure they fit together well, and made one color scheme.

- added rounded corners in a lot of places. this doesn't work in ie or opera (they show square corners) but looks great in firefox and pretty decent in google chrome. i'm also testing in google chrome now instead of konqueror since i think webkit is much more common than khtml, and chrome looks less out of place than safari on windows.

- reorganized the front page to more prominently show recent activity. instead of being a small table in the bottom right, it's now the main content of that page, with the list of featured sections floated to the right.

i'm interested in any feedback.

Misterhaan,

I like the new layout, even RSS Feeds

I'm curious about your thoughts on the two logos. It says Track 7 at the top, and again as a part of the side menu. Do you feel this is redundant? Perhaps an alternative: Track 7 @ the top and the guy to the right, or vice versa?

I like the rounded corners as well. Have you considered rounded corners on the tabs?

I have a question- Does the checkbox work for human verification on your registration script? It seems too simple!

Good work man

i had also thought having the track7 logo on there twice is redundant, but i'm not sure what to do about it. the larger one is set as the <h1> for the page, with "track7& quot; as the alt text, so i like that it serves that purpose (i use an h1 tag for the page title). also the larger one is only on the front page, while every page has the punk guy and the smaller track7 logo.

when i was doing the rounded corners i was forgetting it's possible to round some but not all corners, so i didn't try it with the tabs since i didn't want the bottom corners rounded. i'll probably give it a shot now that you mention it though.

as for the

i rounded the top corners of the tabs, which i think looks pretty good (thanks for the suggestion!), and i tried out removing the larger track7 logo and replacing it with a header that says

Hey Haan,

I really like both changes. To me, the side menu looks like a real menu style window that's embeded within your webpage. The links / items within appear organized- The larger logo seemed to extend the menu beyond it's means if that makes any sense.

Also, the rounded corners of the tabs shows consistency in the design. Good changes for your site I think. Good work

Looks good! I posted a reply on your site, and I like the simplicity, Ajax/JQuery and that it's designed for mobile devices first. That's certainly the way things are trending. These days it seems fewer and fewer people actually use PC's. Document your progress, I'd like to read about it. Then perhaps I can follow your lead and get this place in working order!
