Things:
1. The Nav bar could have the same style as the logo, not just pure white.
2. Maybe some sort of hover/mouse over effect for the nav bar items?
3. If you hovered over THE GAME you can't click the N of NEWS.
4. MEDIA and FAQ maybe in the same colors as the rest of the menu? The dark looks a bit weird.
5. Maybe have THE GAME actually be a link and just direct to media or the FAQ, that's what other pages which have a similar mechanism do, too.
6. I have relatively long loading times, especially for the fonts (my connection is slow today tho).
7. Maybe make 2 or 3 rows of media on the MEDIA page? Like, just cut the info away and only display the thumbs.
8. Maybe (the maybes are strong in this message) remove the topic part on posts in the forum (or make it a lot smaller)?
9. It's a bit weird that the complete layout moves a bit when you hover over one of the buttons. Not a great deal, but if it's an easy fix it would be better without the changing layout.
10. We could maybe split up the team into: Art | Sound | Code | Maps/Levels and then put everyone under those with their specific job next to them (like twmod.org).
11. Reset password still doesn't work. There are no fields to change the password after the one-time login.

1. It is a gradient to #FFF which is pure white so it actually does match
2. Maybe
3. Im not sure i can do anything about that
4. I have tried that and they dont stick out enough
5. When there are more pages there it will link to an overview page that has stuff from everything in the games sections
6. The loading times seem to be fine from some tests i have conducted but it would be the locations of the servers
7. I have tried an have not been very successful (might try again in the future)
8. I am working on removing it. I agree with you.
9. I think i has something to do with the padding. I will look into it.
10. I will let anyone update the page. You can just click edit on the page.
11. I thought i fixed it but i will make this my number one priority right now. I think it is something wrong with the permissions

I see what you mean with the gradient to pure white, but that's still not the same 'style'. The logo has a gradient, the nav bar does not. The logo has an outline, the nav bar does not.
It just feels a bit plain to me. I know the 'boxes' have pure white, too, but the read parts with the icons (and the white just being a background) 'make up for it'. And for a box it's clear that it's just a canvas for information, whereas the nav bar (especially next to the logo) has a bit of a different purpose (it should make you WANT TO CLICK all those links Razz).

It's not that a great deal but I assume getting a similar style as the logo wouldn't be that hard either (outline + gradient fill).

I have been working on the overview page and have nearly finished it. The donate block is just a placeholder for now. I made a mockup in Photoshop and matched it as closely as i could.

Looking really good Chris!

Just a few more things and then it'll be perfect.

a) Could you increase the size of the text for the 'overview' text box please? http://swbattlecry.com/game

b) Where do the donations go?

c) Can we decide now on which poll to post and where do old polls go?

d) I think our profiles should be linked to the 'about us' page so if people want to PM a member they can do so.

a) Maybe

b) Paypal: donate@swbattlecry.com

c) Newest poll is always displayed and old ones are no longer accessible. You can make a new one in the "Add Content" section and select "Poll"

d) Sounds good

Fantastic job Chris.

The site's still a bit temperamental though, sometimes I get a 503 error and need to refresh or wait a few mins.

Anyway, would you be up for setting up Redmine soon?
