I think it would look better if the logo and "Dodge" were a smaller resolution so they don't look pixelated and then you could set the background to not scroll, simply the text.

Holy crap man.
That's just abusive on the eyes.
The 2nd gen page came up, my eyes screamed NO! and I clicked the "x" button.
The font or color or something is horrible. I couldn't look at it long enough to figure aout what bothers me the most.
Ditto on what lisa2000m said also.

Keep tryin' though.

Cheers

BJ

Where did you get those ratings from for the cars? If you got them from some other source, I would reference that. I hate it when people steal info on the internet though some people like Power Wagon will think that I'm just picking on him when I ask, that dumbass.

I got the Ratings from Edmunds.com

I do not steal Info like that, Just Use it and Post a Link to it.

If you originally had the link posted in the first gen section then I didn't see it cause I only looked in the second gen section where there still is NO MENTION of edmunds.com anywhere.

Besides, your link doesn't even work in the first gen section.

I was REALLY bored, so I looked it over again.

WHY WHY WHY would you use the brightest green on a black background? Why would you use that color text, PERIOD? Okay, when using a black background, DO NOT use bright text or really dark text - its murder on the eyes. If you're going to use a black background, try a grey color or something that is more of an earth tone.

Try using a font other than Times New Roman. Comic Sans makes for better reading because it isn't so boring.

Firebird, chill.

Posting like this make people want to say things like "grow up".
Best thing to do when someone says something you don't lke is to ignore it. If you let them know they're under your skin, then it's game on. This is the internet, arguing or slinging insults is useless.

So, nothing personal, but.......

grow up.

Good luck with your site

BJ

I'm not trying to piss you off or make you upset or start flame wars... i'm just telling you plainly that your site is horrible, it is the perfect example of what NOT to do. I'm sorry for being honest, but it breaks all of the fundament principles of good site design.

The fonts are not uniform throughout, you have different sizes and kerning values all over the place. It looks jumbled in some areas, and fat in others (to dumb down kerning for ya).
Your images are pixelated and not displayed at their original resolution or aspect ratio. The images also have a white background instead of being transparent on your BLACK page background.
You have a registered copyright? interesting
"Welcome User" -- thanks for giving me that warm fuzzy feeling inside by referring to me by my formal name
Thanks for telling me to please take a look around -- I thought I was supposed to sit there and stare at the index page.

I sugarcoated it for you this time, but there is no avoiding the fact that your site sucks... not many people will bluntly tell you that though, so I decided it was my civic duty to inform you.

Have a good day, sir.

Yo Firebird,

I don't have anything against you or your site, but I feel the same way Gary does. I'm in the publishing business (similar in the sense of design to websites) and I would lose my customers if I tried to send them something lacking overall style, pics being pixelated, etc. (basically the things Gary listed). It's very noobish, but I figure that it's a start and hopefully you get there in the end, but as it stands, if one of my designers presented that to me (be it a website design or a design of something to be published), I would fire them.

I agree with what was stated above. I know you had good intentions in making the site, but what everyone stated is true. Your forum has NO posts, aside from the ones you posted as admin. The front page doesn't look professional. Besides, we already have DI.net.....what's the point of an (almost) complete carbon copy? Makes it harder to browse for info. Another forum I visit regularly had a falling out between admins, so now there are three different sites all with almost the exact same content and userbase.

I'm not trying to rain on your parade but its the truth.

Dear members,
I may not be the best at web site designing, or Photoshop, but I did what I could to make the words not Burn your eyes out, yes I know the size diff of the words, I have come to realize that 1 I know that my site is "okay" 2 I could do better, I know my forums don't have any posts on them cause the old ones went loopy. IMO I did one hell of a job on my site, You know the saying, what you like, you like, what I like, I like
I don't care to impress anyone, I spent an hour "Redoing my site" to make it look better, but everyone could care less, just like the other saying, "if its not broke, Don't fix it" and I ain't gonna touch it again.... BTW I might be selling the Trep....
