Heh, thanks for the offer. I am currently working on updating the entire site. I basically was trying to get the site up and ready before GDC and figured I would have time after to update and improve the site.

10,000+ visitors later ... heh, well, all I can say is that I promise that the site design and layout will be greatly improved over the next few weeks. That much I promise you all.

However, if anyone has any ideas/comments I am 100% receptive to listening to all ideas. I want the forums and my site somewhere were people can hang out and talk games, life, geekdom, the "standard" stuff. I can do that best with the help of you all.

Either way keep checking back as I will be continuously updating and improving the site on a daily basis for the foreseeable future.

Really? Is that a big problem? I didn't know that. Heh, I have zero intention for this site to ever go anywhere. It's simple enough to update and keep going, and the podcasts will keep me busy. So tell your friends and bring them all over!

Yeah i find the biggest problem with most gaming communities is it isnt moderated at all so you would get just the worst people spamming and complaining about every little thing but this is great. people have good discussions without getting out of hand

I think that Spore really got this great forum up and running. 100 members in a week, not what I call shabby.

I always liked the current logo, i think it's retro and funny.  I hope you're not intending to make the site so complex - i think that simple and accessible is always the best way forward.  Some of these new sites i can never find my way around and just get frustrated!  Meh, call me old, whatever :P.

I won't be chaning the logo too much, if at all. I might make the lettering a bit easier to read, but right now it's staying more or less the way it is. And the navigation will be simple, don't worry about that.

I like the orange logo, very differant from the average site. I think it would be really cool to draw the orange out into the rest of the site - it would make it unique from the rest of the gaming world. I recommend a base background other then white as well. Something calm but interesting. From what I've seen,  the member flow into new sites depends almost entirely on one cool feature and lots of eye candy :)

Sorry to post twice, but I think that the logo when clicked  in the forum, should link back to the index.

I will probably program that in as well. As for the color oragne so many of these gaming sites are black with white type ... so many. I actually like those designs, but I didn't want this site to look like "all those other gaming sites". So that is how I came up with the birghter colors. Again, I'm working on it and will update and improve the design over time. But keep the suggestions comming, you are the guys using the site and I always like to hear what you have to say!

I don't think the head is bad at all...just the eyes!!! :o

No offence Steve, but your eyes really freak me out.

In case you were wondering I love the site! My current favourite and should be for a long time to come!
