A banner would look good, but as CrimsonStrange Siad to much cn distract ppl
i have only made and helped with a few website and templates but most of my ideas come from looking at other sites like what i am producing. and sometimes you can roght click on the main page and click view source and see how things are wrote and what codes they used to do what. i dont know if this is legal or a good ieda. but is what i usually do anyways.
Adding a background colour might make it look nicer. Nothing superbold, like red or blue, but something subtle would work. Very pale green or orange or blue, so that it's still mostly white, but it has a hint of colour in it. Maybe even a gradient from left-to-right from a pale colour to white would be nice too.
Perhaps you could try adding some images, you could try finding some free photos at imagestock. But beware of using images that are not free for use.
It could use some more content: your site will never be popular or even very usefull just by looking good.
I think the Simple design looks real sleak and professional. I wouldnt add abackground color unless it was really pale, cause white is perfectly fine (Thats why big sites like Google and Microsoft have so much white on there ites)
However I would maybe change the top image so that the line under the barrie.frih.net was directly under it because it looks lopsided right now.
Yeah barry, The only thing that your site needs is a flashy template thats quite bold, but still easy to look at. You just have to look at it as if you are a visitor at your site. What would you like to see? If you dont mind the way your site looks, and see no room for improvement, then just ask someone who you dont know, they will give you the most honest opinion.
Maby some soft colors would brighten it up a bit, but I like it as it is, simple is good.
it really looks bad but it doesnt need much to look really good! simple page is the best page if it looks good:) add some color and maybe a picture or two and it will look much better
I like the clean look very much. Some basic shapes or a logo would add to the design, because right now it is all text. I like to decide on aa color shceme using 3 or 4 colors.
