First... I think this thread should have gone in ui design/usability, but oh well...

The site is kind of neat (star wars comes to mind) but extremely horrible usability (this is constructive criticism, so don't be offended :D ) I can't read any of the links on the site. That is a big problem. Think about your user's experience as you are designing... ask yourself "will this be blatently obvious to an almost-retarded user?"

Also... you may want to consider writing valid HTML (it's just a good habit to get into and once you get into the habit it's hard to break :))

Ok....I have already given some tips on this type of thing....this is the one thing I actually feel I can give advice on ....anyways.

User friendly design should ALWAYS be at the forefront of your design. Using text as links is perfect, but not if the color is so close to black you can't use them. I like that you fixed the gray bar on the side, good job. I can't wait to see the game.

The usability is poor. Not to be mean, but you asked for feedback. Also, the content is not existent. Your links open new pages, which kinda sucks from a user experience perspective. The contrast is lacking (basically black an white) and the overall layout needs a little help.

This is just my opinion.

well its up and running u will ahve to join up and tell em what u think. its a game based on warfare, poltics and leadership.

there will soon be a a stroyline guide tell you about all about how the galaxy become indiced in war and the race for technolgy.

im trying not to make there be too many images making it kinda dailup frinedly.

but when the game is up and running i will be after soon on the to do a freelance job for me for a set fee.
to add a token options.

so you can buy token for an x amount and then pay me via paypal and then tokens will add to there account.
token would be used for extra resouces either on a 1 off or 10 token would give you x ticks worth of your current reserch.

add me to msn and i will tell you all about it if u like.

msn addy is in my profile.

Truly. We don't hammer you because its fun (well it is a little bit :twisted: ) but because you want feedback from the developer core here. We have all put something up for review and we have all gotten slapped a bit here and there. It comes with the territory of putting yourself out there.

Bear in mind, also, that you have posted no PHP code in this thread (and please don't, since this is the UI thread) so we haven't even gotten in to how bad your code is yet. :wink:
